Even if South Florida weather doesn't permit sweater-wearing this winter, that doesn't mean you can't enjoy an ugly sweater party or pub crawl! In case your friends disappoint you by not throwing their own Christmas-sweater shindig, downtown Fort Lauderdale has you covered with not one but two hideously knitted events. Whether you want to enjoy a Christmas themed "Thirsty Thursday" or a pub crawl rocking your favorite Christmas attire, you won't want to miss out on these perfect excuses to party. On Thursday, join American Social, located at 712 E. Las Olas Blvd. in Fort Lauderdale, for its second-annual Ugly Sweater Party. Beginning at 9 p.m. and lasting until close, guests can participate in contests for a chance to win Dolphins tickets, gift certificates, and a special autograph while enjoying the jams of Jeff D.
