5 Best Things to Eat and Drink this Weekend in Metro Phoenix

Fugly Sweater Party at Linger Longer Lounge
Saturday, December 5

Dig out the ugly Christmas sweater Auntie Muriel made you last year and wear it to Linger Longer Lounge this Saturday night for the Fugly Sweater Party. From 9 p.m. to 2 a.m., the lounge will be making merry with an awkward family photo contest, live music, and drink specials including hot toddies and peppermint schnapps shots. The wearer of the ugliest sweater will win a $50 gift card to Linger Longer. The party is cover-free, but is limited to those 21 years and older. For additional details, check out the event on Facebook
