Candy or coal?
December is the month of reckoning, and brings with it Splurge's annual Naughty or Nice list. Local organizations and individuals who made the list this year include the WSU men's basketball team, a group of developers headed by George Laham, and a pit bull who became a surrogate mother to a litter of African painted dogs.
This is also the time when we at SPLURGE! select our person of the year. In 2013 we were overwhelmed by the dedicated support from local nonprofits, and so we have collectively recognized nonprofits as person of the year. To Sedgewick County's 2,800 tax-exempt organizations, we salute you!
A few other Wichitans destined for a full stocking include: George Matta of Adrian's, who's opening Zorro's, a new Tex-Mex restaurant in Newton and Augusta. And The Beastie Boys who are appearing at Hartman Arena on December 19. Here's to Pacific breezes rustling through the branches of your Christmas tree!
