Party at the Silverton! Hideous holiday sweaters encouraged.

The Silverton actually wants you to wear sweaters like these.

Face it: you’ve been a victim of the ugly holiday sweater. This fashion assassin strikes multiple times this time of year and its work is everywhere: in Christmas-card photo shoots, at retirement-home gifting gatherings and on dutiful nieces and nephews, donning their “thoughtful” gifts from out-of-touch aunts crazy about crochet.


Hideous Holiday Sweater Party
Dec. 18, doors at 6:00 p.m., free
Silverton Casino Lodge, 263-7777

Fortunately, the Silverton knows that nothing really says happy holidays quite like a bedazzled Frosty the Snowman knitted into a bright-pink pullover. And so, on December 18, the casino-lodge presents its Hideous Holiday Sweater Party. There you can partake in an ugly sweater competition and an egg nog chugging contest. A night full of funny festivities is planned, as drink specials, beer pong and live-band karaoke complete the unsightly sweater celebration.
