In 2021 Christmas in the Park returned to downtown San Jose after a one-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Along with many new features, the addition of Blinky's Tavern, a beer & wine garden, was a huge hit amongst guests. Adults could relax in an enjoyable setting and choose from three different beer and two different wine options. Oh, did we mention that Blinky's Tavern is an inflatable log cabin?
Our presenting sponsor for our first year was Bottomley Distributing Company. With branding on our main tavern sign and holiday banners inside, Bottomley was a great partner for our inaugural year. Featuring Michelob Ultra, Stella Artois and Space Dust IPA, guests had a choice of beverage for $10 per glass. We partnered with Scholar Wine
for the tavern management and their proceeds directly fund scholarships that support college students who are in need of financial assistance.
Although Christmas in the Park has been around since 1980, regulars were in for a treat and here is what family had to say on their first visit to Blinky's Tavern.
