So, Lisa told me to pick just 3 or 4 photos from the Facebook Album of last year’s Ugly Sweater Holiday Party for the blog post on this year’s, but with all of these brilliantly horrendous shots to choose from… what a task that was! Look at these goofballs, from the above group shot featuring, “Glamour-Shots-Pose Krista”, “Giddy-for-Christmas Brad”, “Captains-of-Excitement Lisa & Scott” and “Holiday-Wax-Figurine Heather”, to the more, uh, traditional (?) approach below.

And how did we capture all of this fantastic evidence of yuletide ridiculousness? Well, while the party was in full swing in the main shop area, Lisa had her camera, tripod, timer, and lighting set up in the back room to capture everyone in their full…. glory.  ( ::shudders:: )

To keep in the theme of rampant holiday spirit, our winter fest includes seasonal bevvies, Christmas cookies and snacks, holiday music, and a helluva a lot of good cheer! Maybe there’ll be a retelling of Practical Art version of T’was the Night Before Christmas?!?  (Just get some drinks in me!)

And, of course, there’s a contest for the UGLIEST of the UGLY Holiday Sweaters; most atrocious takes home a $50 Practical Art gift card, so contestants, start your thrifting! (Or, puffy-painting! Seriously– handmade horrors are often a crowd favorite!)

Keep in mind that we’re collecting for Toys for Tots, so feel free to bring a new, unwrapped present for the bin! We cover the sales tax on any of your purchases as a ‘thank you’ for that good deed… which means yes! You can also shop while you shindig! The days until the 25th are ticking away…!

There’s also plenty going on before Thursday night if you wanna eek in beforehand: Tomorrow is Tipsy Tuesday with Short Leash Hot Dogs from 4pm-7pm, followed by Uptown P.E.N., our monthly poetry event from 7-8:30pm. And Wednesday is the second AND LAST Phoestivus event of the season from 4pm-8:30pm at the Downtown Public Market space.  And stay tuned later in the week for the next blog post on our December wall show, “Home” by local glass artisan Troy Moody.

<deep breath> And, GO!
