Merry Texmas Y’all: Geraldine’s Transports the South Pole to Austin
December 17 @ 6:00 pm - December 21 @ 11:30 pm
This holiday season, Geraldine’s is treating Austin to some TexMas hospitality—South Pole-style. From December 17-21 starting at 6 p.m., the restaurant perched on the fourth floor of Hotel Vandt will have a holiday pop-up complete with a snow machine, cozy igloo lounges on the pool deck with views of downtown Austin, an artisan market, holiday-themed cocktail menu, appearance by Southern Santa, and of course, the return of Geraldine’s annual Motown Christmas performance.
Geraldine’s Igloos will be available by reservation for parties of eight or less. Each igloo will be decked out in TexMas décor with record players, board games and more. The holiday menu will include Do-It-Yourself S’Mores and cocktails including a large-format Cowhand Coffee, Ho Ho Horchata and Santa’s got Yolks—all available in the igloos or at the bar.
