What started about four years ago, a Christmas themed pop up bar with all the holiday decorations and cleverly designed cocktails, has grown into an international phenomenon. This year almost 100 Miracle™ Christmas Pop Up Bars are participating. Christmas lights, tinsel, and holiday décor set the tone while cocktails like Christmaspolitans, Jingle Bell Nogs, Naughty or Nice Shots take holiday ‘spirits’ to the next level.
Mutany Pirate Bar & Island Grille in Pasadena has embraced Miracle™ Christmas Pop Up through December 31st. Mutiny Pirate Bar & Island Grille, located on Magothy Beach Road in Pasadena, (serving classic bar food with a Caribbean twist) is the only Miracle™ location in Maryland.
“We’re cramming so much Christmas trimming into the restaurant, you’ll think you’ve been teleported to the North Pole, except it’s warmer and with fewer elves,” said Steve Wecker who co-owns the restaurant with his brother Rob. “Our guys in the galley will be crafting these amazing, limited time cocktails that feature the flavors of the season and are served in exclusive Miracle™ glassware which are available for purchase. In keeping with the holiday spirit, we’re donating a percentage of proceeds from this event to the Chesapeake Christian Center in Pasadena to benefit their kids/students, adult and music/fine arts ministries.”

So don your grass skirts and your leis and hula over for the island-style merriment including all things involving pineapples, tiny umbrellas, laid-back fun and a giant 4-foot can of Spam!
