P.A.’s annual holiday bash line-up includes Tony the Bookie, Travels, Hands & Knees and JD Cooper & Friends.  $10 gets you in the door to enjoy live music and all the food you can eat and the beverages you can drink (within reason), OR you can gain admission by bringing $5 and an unwrapped toy in mint condition to be donated to the Somerville Homeless Coalition.  A fundraiser that helps underprivileged, local children and helps you get your drink on…interesting.
