The holidays are here and this year The Lodge is definitely making it on Santa’s Nice List.

You already know how much we love the creative dishes at The Lodge. Whether we’re having something from their food menu like the Chicken Fried Chicken sandwich or the Goat Cheese and Walnut Ravioli or enjoying one of their signature drinks (Bears Like Berries we’re lookin’ at you), The Lodge consistently delivers greatness. And thanks to the kind folks who work hard over there, that Lodge greatness we know and love is being extended for a good cause.

All December long The Lodge is encouraging the City of Good Neighbors to stretch out our arms and embrace the reason for the season. Through a partnership with the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation The Lodge is hoping to collect 1,000 toys for impoverished children in Western New York, and is thanking all who do so with free drinks! That’s right; bring in a gift any day during December and receive one free drink for every unwrapped, unopened toy donation (limit one drink per person per day).

On WednesdayDecember 16th at 5pm The Lodge will be throwing an exclusive Happy Hour party complete with holiday snacks, treats, and of course free drinks for any and everyone (21+) who brings and has brought an unwrapped, unopened toy for Toys for Tots. The Upstairs Arctic Lounge will be reserved for this holiday Happy Hour and there will be lots of other great deals like $3 beers, $4 mixed drinks, $5 glasses of wine, $6 appetizers and 50¢ wings.
