Houses for the Holidays

As the old song says, there’s no place like home for the holidays.

That’s why this holiday season, Lazy Dog is partnering with Habitat for Humanity on a special project we hope will make the season a little bit brighter. Stop in to your nearest location and ask for one of our festive gingerbread house kits — you can build it at the table for only $5.95 while you enjoy your meal. And the best part? One hundred percent of net proceeds will go toward building homes in our communities.

“For me and my family, the best part about this time of year is being able to slow down and spend time around the table,” founder and CEO Chris Simms said while announcing the partnership with Habitat. “At Lazy Dog, we’d love nothing more than to be a place where you and your family can do the same.”

Sure, the gingerbread houses are delicious — and don’t worry, we won’t give you the side-eye if we catch you popping a gumdrop into your mouth — but don’t be surprised if it all tastes a little sweeter with the knowledge that you’re doing it for a good cause.

Every day, our friends at Habitat strive to help folks build strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter. Assisting families in communities across the U.S. who are in need of decent places to live, Habitat for Humanity helps put a roof over their heads and give them a home for these and all the other holidays. Santa Claus himself couldn’t imagine a better gift.

Of course, by the time January rolls around, most gingerbread houses are getting ready for demolition. But your memories of building one alongside your friends and family will hopefully last much longer and so will the Habitat for Humanity home that you helped make a reality.

If you’re looking for a place to book a holiday event, be sure to check out the prix fixe menus we’ve put together that include a gingerbread house. So get your group together and pass the Froot Loops; it’s all for a great cause!

What will your gingerbread house look like? We can’t wait to see!
