Holiday Happy Hour &

White Elephant Gift Exchange

Register Now!

Come join us at Blind Tiger in Oakland for food and drinks to celebrate the holidays while vying with your fellow transportation professions for the best present! Please bring one wrapped gift of no more than $15 to exchange.

Event starts at 5:00 pm and the White Elephant Gift Exchange begins at 6:30 pm.

For all of you who have never participated in a White Elephant gift exchange, here are the rules:

  1. Each player brings one wrapped gift to contribute to a common pool.
  2. Players sit in a circle or line where they can see the gift pile.
  3. The first player selects a gift from the pool and opens it.
  4. The following players can choose to either pick an unwrapped gift from the pool or steal a previous player’s gift. Anyone who gets their gift stolen in this way can do the same – choose a new gift or steal from someone else. A present can only be stolen once per turn.
  5. After all players have had a turn, the first player gets a chance to swap the gift he or she is holding for any other opened gift. Anyone whose gift is stolen may steal from someone else (as long as that person hasn’t been stolen from yet). When someone declines to steal a gift, the game comes to an end.

The person who brings the gift that is stolen the most times will win a prize!

As a bonus, the Warriors vs. Grizzlies game will be on at 7:30 PM and the three projector screens in the bar is an awesome way to watch!
