The newly renovated The Saguaro hotel in Scottsdale welcomes you and your ugly sweater to their ‘Tis the Season to be Awkward Party’ on Saturday, November 26 with DJ Funkfinger, a leftovers inspired cocktail and app menu from Jose Garces’ Old Town Whiskey, the opening of ‘Christmas in America’ by local artist Jesse Rieser and an awkward photo booth with prizes. The party is from 3:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m., but you can keep the awkwardness going after hours in a $99 room with code “AWKRD.” The event is FREE with a canned food donation. Ugly sweaters and matching outfits (and ridiculous matching antler hats) encouraged.
Here are a few tips from uglysweaters.com to help you with your selection:
1. If you are a hipster, don’t bother with the Cosby Sweaters. You’ll probably actually come off looking pretty typical. Go with an oversized Santa or cartoonish Reindeer bust to prove your dedication to the craft.
2. If you are a heavyset person, stay away from the shoulder pads. I know it might make you think you are Michael Jackson -rad. It’s not the case at all. Shoulder pads only work for people that appear slim in the sweater, then it gives the heir of a regal soldier. Big-uns should go with a vest or cardigan style ugly sweater that exudes confidence and allows for nice accessorizing.
3. Small dainty women should go with children’s sweaters. It’s not fair to guys to show up to a party swimming in a bowl of wool spaghetti. Get a little risque with a cute childrens sweater and you’ll feel nice and look sexy.
