Not everyone has plans for Christmas Day. Perhaps your family gets together before or after the busy holiday season to allow more time to enjoy each other’s company. It could be that you’re in an industry that requires you to work on Christmas Day, making it difficult to attend other events.

Many parents of grown and flown children, either at college or with their own families, find themselves alone on Christmas Day, not wanting to make a huge meal for just the two. Still, others prefer to take the family out for a night on the town instead of spending all their time preparing a meal at home. Whatever your reason, Titan Funding is here to share the restaurants open this Christmas Day in Boca Raton, Florida.

Tap 42 Craft Kitchen + Bar

Tap 42 Craft Kitchen + Bar is located at 5050 Town Center Circle in Boca Raton. It’s open from 11:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 11:30 a.m. to midnight on Friday, 11 a.m. to midnight on Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Sunday.
