Santa Claus is coming to town -- tonight!

Want to spend more time with Santa? Through Nov. 18, shoppers can enter to win a private dinner with St. Nick for up to six family members. On Dec. 8, there will be a breakfast with Santa and Mrs. Claus. Reserve a spot at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . Cost is $5, plus guests are asked to bring a non-perishable food item for the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank.

Ho! Ho! Ho! Happy Holidays!
