Surprise Santas

When Marlena's closed its doors last year and was replaced by Brass Tacks, many lamented the loss of owner Garry "Marlena" McClain's astonishing collection of Santa Claus dolls, which covered every inch of the bar and became a holiday tradition for many bar-crawlers. Happily, Brass Tacks has brought the Santas back, displaying a number of them around the bar. It's not the full 1,400-Santa collection (estimated to be worth $200K), but it's a nice tribute.
