EatBar Encourages You to Dress Poorly

Ugly holiday sweaters: not just for house parties anymore. On Sunday, December 19th from 6pm-1am, EatBar invites you to a traditional Ugly Sweater Party, where you can wear whatever ridiculous light up, singing, teddy bear-encrusted holiday sweater your grandma ordered on QVC that you’ve never taken out of the package.

For your humiliation, EatBar will be screening the holiday classic, “A Christmas Story” and whipping up holiday cocktails such as a spiked peppermint patty cocoa and a housemade apple-infused bourbon. If you prefer to eat your embarrassment instead of drink it away, there will also be plenty of snacks like popcorn and candy canes passed around.

Make sure to dress to impress though, the “best” (worst?) sweater and its owner will win a classy Leg Lamp, just like the one from “A Christmas Story.” Because nothing says Christmas cheer like body part electronics.

  1. I think Commonwealth Gastropub is doing something similar, except they are tying it to the release of the Great Lakes Christmas Ale…I think.
