Jingle bells and pizza tonight in Sunnyside

The gods couldn't quite conjure up any snow to dash through, but tonight in Sunnyside, you can still go on a horse-drawn ride, bells a'jingling, and laughing all the way. Ernie's Bar & Pizza will host the fourth annual Sunnyside Sleigh Ride from 5 to 8 p.m., inviting neighborhood families and other adventurous souls out for an evening of old-fashioned fun.

Along with the horses, sleigh bells and hot chocolate, Santa will be on the scene for photo ops. And indoors, Ernie's will be pouring happy-hour specials all evening, as well as offering its $30 Family Night Dinner Special, which slings a couple of pizzas or piles of spaghetti and meatballs to feed a party of four.

Take a ride back in time for a $2 suggested donation (such a deal!); visit Ernie's online for more information.
