Lia's Kitchen downtown is hosting Santa Clause at their restaurant. 

It's getting closer and closer to the big day. Everyone is wrapping presents, and getting their Christmas spirit going. Add to your Christmas cheer and get your kid on Santa's lap this Saturday, December 16th from 1-3pm. Lia's Kitchen is at 208 East Lufkin Ave. Santa will be there, and you are allowed to take your own camera or they will take the picture for you. They are even going to upload all the pictures that they take to the Lia's Kitchen Facebook page by Monday December 18th.

To be honest I am amazed with Lia's kitchen. I know everyone thinks that the last thing Lufkin needed another restaurant. But this place is just different. Offering things that you can only get in a big city. Pho is one of them, very common in other areas, and this is the only place you can get authentic Pho in Lufkin. Before we were driving to Nacogdoches, or even further. Plus they do just regular stuff like Burgers and Fries, since we live in East Texas. Not everyone in your lunch group is down to try new things, so I think it's good to have the option.
