On Saturday, my neighborhood rolled out the tacky red carpet for a giant ugly Christmas sweater pub crawl. A dozen bars opened up their doors to fans of the finest in festive ugly, and it was glorious.

The “Christmas Crawl” offered 42 drink specials, like red and green Jell-o shots and cinnamon-spiced whiskey. In some of the venues, DJs spun the latest hits to get the crowds hopping. Other bars had a more low-key vibe.

In all cases, the mood was festive and fun. The pubs were packed, and the ugly merriment spilled out onto the streets, as people “crawled” from spot to spot.

My epic moving, light-up reindeer ugly sweater from MyUglyChristmasSweater.com got many laughs.

“You won,” one guy told me.

“Your sweater is amazing,” a young woman said.

“I can’t concentrate, that sweater is distracting,” another young woman told her friends, when she was trying to have a conversation. I had set my sweater’s built-in LED lights to flashing for the pub crawl, to rock the sweater to the max.

During a more sedate house party last week, I rocked the same sweater, but I had the lights on solid, so as not to overwhelm my house guests.

During the pub crawl, I saw all matter of ugly sweaters, from hilarious naughty sweaters ordered online to true homemade numbers, including a white shirt with a hand-drawn snowman. There were ugly vests aplenty, and a few ugly sweater dresses.

Lots of folks had great accessories, from silly Santa hats to red-and-green tutus. Some peeps had glowing lights draped around their necks.

Full disclosure: I didn’t make it to every single pub on the list, but I did hit most of them, including Front Page, Fiesta, Madhatter, Bread & Brew, and Irish Whiskey.

Enjoy these pics from the crawl!
