At the dive bar Lala's Little Nugget, the halls have been decked with boughs of holly for decades - it’s been continually and epically decorated for Christmas since the 1970s. It’s gotten a bit fancier after a recent ownership change - there’s craft beer on tap now - but you can still get a Lone Star tallboy for $3 during Happy Hour. And yes, it’s even open on Christmas Day.
