ANNUAL EVENT EMBRACES THE UGLY CHRISTMAS SWEATER
Finally, you have a good reason to sport that cheesy Christmas sweater your great-aunt gave you 10 years ago. On Dec. 16, grab your tackiest holiday garb and join hundreds of other revelers for the third annual Ugly Sweater Bar Crawl. This guided Buckhead area bar tour kicks off at Buckhead Saloon with a registration party featuring raffles and giveaways. Then the crowd will be divided into groups to rotate between five local bars over the course of five hours. At each destination, event goers will enjoy live holiday music and drink specials (think $3 wells and $2 domestic beers). The event culminates in one big after party when everyone gets back together again. “If you’re new to Atlanta, or just looking for a unique way to celebrate the holiday season, this is the event for you,” says Andy Zirger, founder of Atlanta Bar Crawls. If you manage to make it to the after party, you’ll be rewarded with a signature “Atlanta Bar Crawl Champions” T-shirt. But this event isn’t just about eating, drinking and being merry; it’s also about collecting unopened gifts to donate to Toys for Tots.
