Gnorm Backgrounds

Every holiday season we get in the spirit by welcoming our friend Gnorm to the lobby. Not one to shy away from the spotlight, you can often find him taking pictures around the hotel and bar. But his favorite thing is posing for pictures with his friends.

See you in 2022!

The event expanded and moved to Txikiteo last year; all 2019 Campfire Stories evenings take place on the patio at Txikiteo, with writers and storytellers from all genres telling tales loosely organized around a theme.
