Our annual holiday happy hour is always a fun time.  Reconnect with your One Brick friends and make some new ones!  Participate in this year’s Holiday Garb/Fashion-Challenged Sweater Contest!  Make a Misfit Toy!  Test your knowledge in our Holiday Trivia Contest!

 

With your donation of $20 to One Brick, you will get drink specials, cool prizes and lots of holiday cheer!

 

We also are very pleased that this year’s non-profit beneficiary will be the Comer Children’s Hospital at the University of Chicago Medical Center. With your donation of toy, we will knock off $10 of your cover charge.
