(Blue Moon) This tried-and-true Blue Moon tradition started as a reaction to Seattle's complete lack of dive bars that also hold church services. The first one, tardily started in 2004, consisted of a band playing off-key Christmas music, followed by a reverend—one Darnell Jenkins—leading a church service in the bar. The event had about three attendees. Since then, the Christmas Eve holiday here has been attended by all sorts of folks, including standup comedians, rapping prostitutes, tap dancers, Jesus, and even Satan. If you're into turning holiday frowns upside down, and/or bastardizing this unholiest of holy nights, you should go to this.
