Boxing Day Pajama Party Storytelling Extravaganza for (Grownup) Holiday Orphans

Walk through downtown San Francisco on Christmas day, and you can begin to believe you are the last person on earth. Everyone else has fled to the family bosom, retreating to childhood rituals, faces aglow from twinkling Christmas tree lights, sledding down pristine, snow-covered hills.

But not you. You're a holiday orphan, left alone in the big city.
Or, not quite alone. Portuguese Artists Colony will turn on the light, just for you. On December 26, we are your family, minus the years of disappointment, the festering resentments. Join us to hear twisted tales, drink something to warm you, and sing anything but Christmas carols.

You may belong nowhere else, but you will always belong with us.
