If you are looking for a way to help those in need in Thurston County during the holiday season, you’ve come to the right place. The Olympian’s annual Light of Hope is a list of needs that you can fill to make the holidays better for clients from City Gates Ministries, GRuB, the YWCA Olympia, Barb O’Neill Family & Friends, Family Support Center, and Lewis Mason Thurston Area Agency on Aging.
At Dillinger’s Cocktails and Kitchen, wrapped presents and twinkling lights hang overhead. Christmas carols are playing. The bartenders are dressed in holiday style. And the Prohibition-themed bar in downtown Olympia isn’t just in the holiday spirit: It’s also serving holiday spirits. It’s Miracle at Dillinger’s, a pop-up Christmas bar, and it’s happening now through Dec. 24.
