Fat Orange Cat Santa Claw

Mike Klucznik and his wife, Sheila Mullen, opened farm brewery Fat Orange Cat Brew Co. in East Hampton, Connecticut, on Aug. 13, 2016. The longtime homebrewer Klucznik wasn’t a cat person until he met Mullen’s orange-and-white feline, Billy, whose memory now lives on with the brewery. Before they launched Fat Orange Cat, Klucznik worked as a CPA and Mullen as an American Sign Language teacher. Klucznik’s homebrewing medals began to pile up so they opened the brewery as a place to store the medals — and showcase his talents. Their Santa Claws: Cinnamon Edition is an imperial stout brewed with cinnamon buns, which is an appropriately named addition to the Charme Natural Nails Studio gift card.

Proctor District

Proctor is a boutique Tacoma neighborhood centered around North 26th Street and Proctor Street. It’s a small district packed with locally-owned and operated niche stores in which every detail — every window display, bushel of fresh produce or interior cheer — is carefully curated for customers. This year, the Proctor Business District dons candy cane stripes and white lights for their month-long “Meet Me At Proctor’s Peppermint Place” celebration. Peaks & Pints craft beer and cider bar, bottle shop and restaurant has called Proctor home for more than seven years. We’re proud to be a part of this wonderful, caring community.
