Krampus Night

Oh you better watch out…’cus he’s coming back to town!  On Friday December 6th 2019, Krampus is at it again with the 9th annual festive-ish event:


Who is Krampus?  Only the swellest devil to accompany ole’ St Nick on his rounds during the holidays.  Unlike Santa, he joyfully punishes the naughty by swatting them with switches…but who doesn’t?  However, on this night he’s a devil with a cause helping those in need with a…

 Toy & Food Card Drive 

Bring in some new unwrapped toys or $5 fast food gift cards and get in on the cheap (and some good feels)!  All toy donations are taken directly to a Toys For Tots center to benefit less fortunate children during the holidays and all food card donations go to Burners Without Borders Detroit to help feed the homeless (click here for details).

But wait!  There’s also the…

 Wreck The Halls® Exhibition 

It’s a crap-tastic “exhibition” of holiday-ish ornaments and decorations created by the all-volunteer Krampus Redecoration Anticrafting Party (KRAP)!  These tiny monstrosities re-imagined from thrift/dollar store junk will be haphazardly spread out all over the venue.  And WTH also includes the Bad Gingerbread House competition (click the link to sign up)!

And for your “entertainment”, we once again bring you the hilariously disastrous…
