Area families are invited to gather at The Range Bar & Grille on Sat., Dec. 17, from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m., where children can meet with Santa and his elves after his special entrance by helicopter.
The Range, a local favorite widely known for its expansive patio and driving range, is owned by local partners Will O’Connell and Jim Bristol. The dining room and bar area boast over 30 televisions, including a custom JUMBOTRON, and The Range’s new private event room is quickly becoming a South Shore favorite for celebrations and special occasions.
Santa is no stranger to The Range -- his yearly visit now a staple event in Hingham. “We are thrilled to continue this exciting tradition,” said O’Connell. “The holiday season is such a special time for families, and we are honored to bring the community together with this heart-warming event!” The event is open to the public and no purchase is necessary. Complimentary cookies and hot chocolate will be served to children and Hingham Police and Fire will be on site, providing children Touch-a-Truck opportunities and even a K9 demonstration.
O’Connell owns and operates other South Shore establishments, including Granite Links, in Quincy; the Chantey and Waterclub, in Marina Bay; and Hull’s LOCAL 02045. He and Bristol, a well-known area developer and property owner, partnered on The Range back in 2016, and more recently with the Tavern at Weathervane Golf Club, in 2020. Weathervane Golf Club, located in Weymouth, is home to a nine-hole golf course, multiple private event spaces, and a bar area and dining room with chef-inspired cuisine and igloo dining over the winter.
