If you're tired of sugar-plum fairies, tinkling bells and jolly, red-cheeked Santa’s, then a visit to METALLICLAUS may be in order.

A” Jeopardy” style trivia game called Bang your Head (also hosted by Metalliclaus too) that will dole out the goodies. Attendees can get their photo snapped with the grouchy old elf for only $7, with proceeds benefiting the Children's Hospital of Foundation of Michigan. Metalliclaus has a soft spot for the kids…
