That is one Ugly Christmas Sweater :) Multiple Meetup Group Event!

Update: The event has changed from Saturday to Thursday. Saturday is going to be colder than Jack Frost, so I moved the event up to a warmer night. Just wear a long sleeve shirt under your sweater for warmth, don't cover up that ugly thing with a jacket! 

If your looking for an event for Saturday, there is the Santacon event! I have it posted for this Saturday 7th and it starts at 5:30.


Time for our Annual Ugly Christmas Sweater Event! The weather is finally getting chilly and we need to stay warm! 


You can wear an ugly Christmas sweater or dress as your favorite Christmas character.

You can get an ugly Christmas sweater from numerous places such as Goodwill, online websites like Ebay and Amazon, and local vintage clothing stores. Shop now to get that special sweater before someone else does!

Here's the Lineup:

7pm -11pm The Rattle Inn 610 Nueces St
Drink specials for our group! $3 Fireball shots,  $2 Bud Light, $3 Drafts ask the bartender which drafts are on special and $3 Wells :)

We will be at the upstairs outside patio at the Rattle Inn. The patio has 2 large heaters and space heaters. 

11:15- 2 The Ranch 710 W 6th St

After party-  For those of you who want to stay out late on a school night. I wont be there, but don't let that stop you! 

Warm your buns at the outdoor fireplace or dance on one of the 2 dance floors

    Please change it back! Thursday night is not an option for most people because of work on Friday. I agree with Doug...its a sweater party. Sweaters are warm.

      Why was it changed so last minute? Lame...it's not going to be that much colder on Saturday. And the weather is set to be clear anyways.

    My somewhat ugly, but cool Xmas sweater unfortunately didn't make it in time for the rescheduled date. Most likely being delivered tomorrow. Don't wanna look goofy without an ugly sweater on....you know! Have an arctic blast y'all....... :P

    Goodwill on Lamar and Family thrift on Oltorf both did not have any xmas sweaters. Any suggestions, really want to attend this

      Pick up a cheap red/green long sleeve shirt and go to the dollar store. The best ugly xmas sweaters are made not bought!

    Thursday, Saturday, doesn't matter to me. Met some great friends at this thing last year and we're still friends now. You'd be silly not to go to this, even if just for a little bit (because we all know even if you stay in to "study" or "sleep early for tomorrow" you still stay up late). Hope to meet some of you all tonight!

    December 5, 2013

      Bahaha, so something came up just now and I'll probably be late as well. However, I will be there! Come say hey.

    Would anybody like to grab a pre-drink drink with me? Nothing sounds more intimidating than showing up stag in my ugly holiday sweater.

      A cool pace to check out which is close to Rattle Inn is a bar called Dirty Bills. Its a divy little bar with great drink specials, they would be more than happy to see everyone's ugly sweaters.

    Hi Everyone,
    I will be at the event at 8, have to work till 7:30. As soon as you walk into the Rattle Inn go left and you will see the stairs that lead up to the patio. The event starts at 7 and just let the bartenders know you are there for the Meetup event. They should recognize you from your ugly sweater! See you all there!

    December 4, 2013

    • Dan

      Enjoy the drink specials and I will see you all there. We will have a Ugly sweater competition at 9:30, so keep an eye out for most ugly, most creative and most funny or just down right keep Austin wierd.

    Tomorrow's weather forcast: Evening chance of rain 60% with a low of 37 degrees. http://www.weather.com/weather/tomorrow/Austin+TX+USTX0057:1:US

      Hi Jenna, looks like it says 62 high with a low of 37, 20% chance of rain. Sounds like perfect sweater weather. Rattle Inn has numerous heaters, a roof, and should have side wind liners down. Everyone can wear a shirt under their sweater as well. See you there!

    Is the sweater party for NAKID Sports related to this one? It's on Sat at the Rattle Inn, but it's at 9pm. I'm confused.

  • Dan

    Hi All, The weather on Saturday is supposed to breezy with a high of maybe 40 and a low of 30 with the chance of freezing rain. We will need more than a sweater to keep us warm and we will have to all be bundled up in jackets. No Bueno! Hope to see you on Thursday and keep your sweater for next Saturday!! Lets all attend Amanda's Celtic Cowboy Pub Crawl on Saturday December 14th its for a great Charity! We can wear our ugly sweaters there also. After Amanda's event we can meet over on Rainey street to continue the crawl. We will go to 3 places on Rainey with 2 of them having fireplaces. Sound good :)

    I have been told by many of my American friends that I must do one of this parties while I am here. I am a little nervous because I do not know anybody in this group

    Great and funny idea! My sweater is so ugly, that Santa won't visit me while I am wearing it. Although, my Dog loves it.
