UGLY SWEATER PARTY, Butcherkniefe Brewery, December 23 5-8pm
Naughty or Nice? This seems to be the question on our minds this time of year and our answer as of late has been a resounding… NAUGHTY!
So to celebrate our devious side, Butcherknife Brewing Company decided to host an “Ugly Christmas Sweater Party” guest starring none other than Bad Santa himself.
Dig deep into your closet my friend and pull out that hideous holiday sweater your grand mom gave you years ago and you’re too sentimental to donate. You know that somewhere, buried in your drawers, you’ve got a sweater so heinous that even Saint Nick would mock you for it. The wilder the better, we say.
And if you don’t have one of those crazy looking knit garments lying around, we encourage you to come dressed as your best “Bad Santa” or “Naughty Elf.” We’ll have prizes for best costume and loads of cool stuff to give away.
