Krampusnacht @ Red Lion Tavern

Saturday night guests celebrated Krampusnacht with The League of S.T.E.A.M. at Red Lion Tavern in Silver Lake. St. Nicholas, or his modern counterpart “Santa”, gives gifts to good children, while the Krampus is responsible for the naughty ones. Festivities included pin the tongue on the Krampus, St. Nicholas spreading holiday cheer and spankings from the Krampus himself.
