Christmas Eve Eve Mule Log Bash at HopMonk/Novato

  • HopMonk/Novato 224 Vintage Way Novato, CA, 94945 United States (map)

Sure we know you’ll be plenty busy Christmas Eve –wrapping, baking, filling stockings and assembling bicycles.  But the night before that?  Heck, it’s too late for last-minute shopping and there’s nothing left to do that can’t be procrastinated for another day.  So c’mon down to the HopMonk in Novato (224 Vintage Way in Vintage Oaks) and celebrate the season in style with the Mules’ last & biggest Swampy Tonk jamboree of the year.  The Kickin’ Country Girls will be on hand to provide free line dance lessons, along with other special guests and surprises.  And if holiday merriment seems just too self-indulgent for you, then do it for your fellow man – the band is donating all proceeds to the Redwood Credit Union’s North Bay Fire Relief Fund.  All ages are welcome, so you don’t need a baby-sitter, and it’s an early start (7pm) so we won’t keep you up past your bedtime.  Tickets ($10) are going fast, so order yours now at  Circle the 23rd on your calendar -- in bright red! -- don your gay apparel and your dancing shoes and join us for a holly jolly night of fun, frolic and joyful noise.

Here in the swamp ‘twas the night before

The night before the Yule.

Nary a critter was quiet,

Not gators, nor crawdads nor Mules.


They’re raising the roof, they’re stomping their hooves,

They’re dancing the whole night away.

Don’t hesitate, c’mon celebrate

A Swampy-Tonk holiday!


Don’t forget to remember the 23rd of December,

It’s a Mule Log jubilee!

Ol’ Santy Claus says it’s for a good cause

And there’s no funner place to be.


Santa says “See ya later,” then his red-nosed gator

Pulls his pirogue clear outta sight.

But I hear him drawl, “Merry Christmas, y’all.

There’ll be a romp in the swamp tonight!”
