The vow to change creates a continuing faith in human improvement – “I’ll lose 30 pounds this year,” but the format is so tyrannical that it often leads to failure – “Yeah, well, maybe twenty…”

Oreana Winery in Santa Barbara is proud to promote the liberation of these constraints with the annual Holiday Hangover Hat Party on Saturday, January 26 at 6:00PM with local band The Gawd Damn Band fresh off their first national tour.

As an added, unplanned bonus, it also happens to be National Hat Day so we are giving free admission to anyone wearing a hat – the stranger the better. There will be prizes given away for crazy, goofy and just plain ugly headwear.

All this is wrapped up in a festive, winter-like setting with ice sculptures, chillin’ wintery sounds and a snowball throwing contest. Proceeds benefit the Unity Shoppe of Santa Barbara.

ADMISSION IS FREE (must be 21+) wines are available for purchase by the glass, typically $5-9 per glass. The event starts at 6:00 PM and runs until 10:00 p.m. Oreana Winery is located at 205 Anacapa Street, two blocks from the beach and two blocks off of State Street in downtown Santa Barbara. The tasting room phone number is 805.962.5857.
