Happy Chanukah: Dreidel games at Fontana's & Dive 75

Happy Chanukah to our Jewish readers!
Chanukah (aka Hanukkah) starts on Monday, December 22 and will continue for 8 days until Monday, December 29. Note that in the Jewish calendar, a holiday begins on the sunset of the previous day, so observing Jews will celebrate Chanukah on the sunset of Sunday, December 21. Major League Dreidel kicks off Chanukah with their 2nd annual tournament...
