Karri here. On deck to drink all of the holiday cocktails.

What's happening: Ned and I stopped by Evergreen, Birdie's holiday pop-up and the first to open in town this season.

  • As promised, the restaurant was thoroughly decked in holiday decor.
  • Bonus points for a self-serve hot cocoa station in the lobby.

Zoom in: We tried three drinks from their holiday cocktail list: Reindeer Games, a spiced cider and rum drink served with whipped butter; Five Golden Rings, a bourbon, lemon, honey and fig drink; and frozen eggnog.

  • My favorite was the eggnog, which came out of a slushy machine and was extra boozy.
  • Ned's favorite was the buttered rum drink, which reminded him of the (nonalcoholic) mulled cider his mom used to make at Christmas.

Worth noting: Richmond's holiday pop-up scene is on fire this year. In addition to the 13 we already highlighted, we're adding these to the list:
