What if every time you drank, it was for a good cause? That would save the world, we thinks.
Tonight you can start on this fantasy endeavor at the Third Annual Ugly Sweater Bar Crawl. Ten bucks for the crawl goes toward Wilton Manors' nonprofit Kids in Distress. The debauchery starts at Bull Market and continues to other fun Himmarshee spots.
Make sure your reindeer adorned and tinsel covered tacky sweater reaches full ugly potential; there will be an an ugly sweater contest with prizes for both the ugliest and the sexiest sweater. If you want to continue drinking for charity, SantaCon is the next night.
Ho, ho, ho!
