Santa and soda

A sugar rush is inevitable this weekend as Blue Sun Soda Shop offers free samples of several beverage flavors. Guests will also be treated to one free slice of pizza to absorb the soda tastings. Good little boys and girls can bring their letters to Santa and get in last-minute gift requests. 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Sat. Free. 1625 County Hwy. 10, Spring Lake Park. bluesunsodashop.com.
