Ho, ho, ho! Were you good or bad this year? I think I was mostly good, so I hope I have some good karma (and presents!) coming my way. I am spending my holiday time with my family in Pensacola. If you see me out and about at Emerald City or The Cabaret, come up to me and say hi! I will be back in time to ring in the New Year though, so you might see your photo on our Facebook page in the “Out with Hotspots” album. For those of you staying in Central Florida this week, I have an extra-long column of events. I even have an idea for you if you’re looking to cater a fun party for January! Enjoy, and have a Merry Christmas. Lots of love to you all!
