Campsite 131 – created by the owners of Camp Bar – will soon transform into "Santa Camp," a holiday-licious, winter wonderland-y, Santa-themed bar. It opens at 131 N. Jackson St. on Friday, Nov. 22 and runs through Tuesday, Dec. 31.

""We are going all out to completely transform the space for the holidays," says owner Paul Hackbarth. 

Santa Camp will host ugly sweater parties, visits from the jolly ol' St. Nick and a city-wide contest with 95.7FM (more on that in the near future!). It will collect gifts for the "Toys for Tots" program and organize a "Camp Christmas Carol Crawl" on Saturday, Dec. 7 that will include caroling at all Camp locations.

"Santa bar is going to be amped," says Hackbarth. 

Campsite 131 is open Wednesday-Sunday. Go here for more information. 

Molly Snyder grew up on Milwaukee's East Side and today, she lives in the Walker's Point neighborhood with her partner and two sons.

As a full time senior writer, editorial manager and self-described experience junkie, Molly has written thousands of articles about Milwaukee (and a few about New Orleans, Detroit, Indianapolis, Boston and various vacation spots in Wisconsin) that range in subject from where to get the best cup of coffee to an in-depth profile on the survivors of the iconic Norman apartment building that burned down in the '90s.

She also once got a colonic just to report on it, but that's enough on that. 

Always told she had a "radio voice," Molly found herself as a regular contributor on FM102, 97WMYX and 1130WISN with her childhood radio favorite, Gene Mueller.

Molly's poetry, essays and articles appeared in many publications including USA Today, The Writer, The Sun Magazine and more. She has a collection of poetry, "Topless," and is slowly writing a memoir.

In 2009, Molly won a Milwaukee Press Club Award. She served as the Narrator / writer-in-residence at the Pfister Hotel from 2013-2014. She is also a story slam-winning storyteller who has performed with The Moth, Ex Fabula and Risk!

When she's not writing, interviewing or mom-ing, Molly teaches tarot card classes, gardens, sits in bars drinking Miller products and dreams of being in a punk band again.
