Ugly Sweater/ Open Mic Night @ Kana
December 13, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
UGLY SWEATER NIGHT and OPEN-MIC THIS FRIDAY!
Fri 7-10 PM
OPEN-MIC NIGHT combined with our annual UGLY SWEATER NIGHT will be fun, so please come by for one reason or the other,m or especially BOTH! Door prizes for the best (WORST) sweaters. Though the sweater as a garment has existed in the U.S. since the late 19th century, hideous holiday versions only began to sprout up in the last several decades. Bill Cosby (ahem!) was a modern-day pioneer of the trend and is revered as an ugly sweater icon. As Cliff Huxtable on his eponymous ‘80s sitcom, the family man’s uniform of choice was a wooly pullover with questionable color mixing and patterns. Thanks to him, Cosby, as well as Chevy Chase in National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, these sweaters experienced a resurgence until their popularity faded as the ‘90s began.
