Chanukah 2012

How about a 25-foot-tall menorah, kosher beer party & a “latkepalooza?” | Dec 8-15
By - posted 12/8/2012

Santa and his tree may get most of the pub, but the the Festival of Lights can thrown down some seriously fun events too.

Not only is there a 25-foot-tall menorah and festival in Union Square for Chanukah 2012, but there’s also a kosher beer party, a festival in Ghirardelli Square, a tasty “latkepallooza” that takes us through eight days of crazy nights.

Got a fun Bay Area Chanukah event to share? Leave a comment below and let us know!
