One of our favorite sports bars, Goodbye Horses, is getting geared up for all the festive fun with their Christmas pop-up! If you’re looking for a fun and casual vibe with all the holiday sips and decor to put you in the Christmas spirit, make your way over to Goodbye Horses!

Updated December 2022



Goodbye Horses opened earlier this year from Julian Barsotti, Chef behind local Italian favorites, Nonna and Fachini. A new direction for the restaurateur, Goodbye Horses is a local sports bar with a menu of scratch-made bar bites and low priced drinks! Barsotti ditched the frills and flare and wanted this to be a place for anyone and everyone to come and enjoy each other’s company.

The Filthy Animal / Vanilla Vodka, Kahlúa and Cream with a Candy Cane Rim
GIN-GLE Bells and Tonic / Gin, Lime, Cranberry, and Tonic
Peppermint Espresso Martini / Vanilla Vodka, Baileys, and Cold Brew with a Chocolate Rim and a Candy Cane
