When you work in a bar, you tend to go to a lot of wreath auctions. It’s kind of the thing to do around the holidays. I’ve been going to wreath auctions so long, every door in the house has a wreath. I’m talking the bathrooms, the pantry, the linen closet— hell, you can’t even open the liquor cabinet without something jingling and vomiting up tiny bits of evergreen and flecks of fake snow. Still, there’s a special place in my heart for the Alexandre’s wreath auction coming up on December 15. This lively little bar on Cedar Springs is always entertaining, if not for the customers, then for the bartenders. Honeys, the word colorful doesn’t even begin to describe this place. And each holiday season, it’s always interesting to watch Lee and his boisterous crew working together for a good cause. This year, all proceeds from the event go to Needle Prick Project, an organization focused on HIV awareness. Which means it’s a great time to stock up on your own wreath collections. You say you’re not feeling the holiday season? Go anyway. Nothing will silence your inner Scrooge faster than tossing back a few too many Fireballs and going wild with your credit card for a good cause.
