IO Saturnalia! | SoHo Bar and Grill | Saturday, 16. December 2017

"Io Saturnalia!" = "Hooray! It's Saturnalia!"
Saturnalia is the ancient Roman celebration that eventually became Christmas. A week-long party where the rich and poor traded places, and drank and ate to their hearts content, this Pagan celebration was in homage to Saturn- whom many incarnations later would become Santa!
Traditionally running from December 17-23, Anne Moniz, Singer-Songwriter's full band experience Nimway is hosting a kick-off party featuring some great live music, as well as some fantastic product/merch vendors! It's like a party/indoor market/live music showcase! (Actually, that's exactly what it is! And just in time for some last-minute gift shopping! ATM ONSITE!!!)
