Donning a tacky sweater is becoming more popular every year, and you most likely have one or know someone that likes to show it off.

Well, here’s an opportunity to be recognized at Culinary Dropout when it hosts its all-day Ugly Sweater Contest from Saturday, December 22 – Monday, December 24.

You’ll have a chance to enter the contest any time during their normal business hours, and also try their seasonal Ugly Sweater Punch. The cocktail —at $8 — is packed with Eagle Rare whiskey, Becharovka, pear liqueur, Luxardo cherry, and smashed orange.

If you believe you’ve got a sweater that’s so ugly the Grinch wouldn’t touch it with a 39-and-a-half foot pole, then you’ve got a shot at taking home a 23-year-old bottle of Pappy Van Winkle’s Family Reserve bourbon.

How to enter the Ugly Sweater Contest:

  • Spend time at the restaurant between Saturday, December 22 – Monday, December 24
  • Wear your most disastrous sweater
  • Post a picture of yourself on Facebook or Instagram with the hashtag #averyuglyCDOxmas
