Bitter & Twisted has temporarily been transformed into an islandstyle hideaway for the holiday season, complete with festive Tiki decorations. Called Sippin’ Santa, the pop-up will be in place through Dec. 28, serving a new menu of colorful Tiki concoctions, such as the Kris Kringle Colada and the four-person Jingle Bowl, along with a pared down version of the original cocktail menu. Collectable themed items, like barware and Tiki mugs, are also available for purchase. Additionally, 10% of all retail sales during the pop-up will be donated to the charity Action Against Hunger. www.bitterandtwistedaz.com.
BREW WITH A NEW ‘DO
Valley-based Huss Brewing Co. recently launched a new design for its iconic Papago Orange Blossom Ale. While the brew’s flavor and recipe, featuring refreshing citrus and vanilla-infused flavors, stayed the same, the can and packaging for the 15-year-old beer received a refresh. The updated look includes the same classic white and orange color scheme, with modern purple accents and Huss’ Arizonashaped logo. www.hussbrewing.com.
MOBILITY MADE EASY
StretchLab opened a third location in Arizona last month, found in the Arcadia neighborhood. Created in 2015, the boutique health and wellness franchise’s “Flexologists” provide guidance to identify tightness and imbalances in the body through stretching. The goal of class is to increase mobility and flexibility, helping to reduce pain, decrease muscle aches, and improve posture. The studio offers 25- and 50-minute one-onone assisted stretches as well as 50-minute small group stretch classes. www.stretchlab.com.
