UPCOMING FUN: We have many fun events coming up. Many of them are sold out. if you have a ticket but can't go, feel free to use the forum to sell your spot.

INVITATION: our annual holiday party is coming up. We have a few spots still open.

Saturday, December 17 @ 4:00 PM
Where: Scott & Ali's  Round Lake, IL (map)


The holidays are a time of giving and joy. A time of twinkling lights and mall Santa's, who smell like cheap cologne and even cheaper booze. Yes, it’s tһаt time again for our 4th Annual Twisted Holly-Daze Potluck Dinner but this year, with a new TWIST! That's right! Don your best Walmart shopping, redneck, hillbilly, or white trash outfit (is there really a difference?) and come join us! Costumes not required but don't blame us if you win the best costume contest and claim that you didn't dress down for the party!

Have you been naughty or nice? Santa knows! Find out if you'll receive a bag of coal or a wonderful *cough* recycled treasure!

WALMART GIFT EXCHANGE aka Recycle, Re-use, and Reduce that trash erm... I mean TREASURE hidden in your closets and under your bed! Time tο unload those unwanted “gifts” уου һаνе collecting dust in your closet since you're too embarrassed to unload them back onto your friends, family, or even Goodwill! Like that famous fruitcake which has made it's way around back to you! Yesterday's fruitcake can be repurposed to be today's beautiful paper weight or as a weapon in case of unwanted intruders - no, we don't mean your family visiting for the holidays! Gifts can be bought new but not costing more than 10 big ones, yes, that's $10.00!

Grab your best "OMG-MY-EYES-ARE-BLEEDING" ugly Christmas Sweater. YES, CHRISTMAS! When was the last time you saw a Hannukah sweater or Qwanza? Don't have one? Grab any old sweater and decorate it yourself with a hot glue gun, a box of cast off ornaments, and a bottle of spiked egg nog to enhance your creative side. Oooo sparkly! Then dress in as much tacky holiday accessories your credit card can stand to win big! Oh yes, there will be prizes!

Remember one person's frugly is another person's beautiful! Who can beat Cynthia's "Chestnuts Roasting on An Open Fire?" ornament? Bring it, to win it and hang it on the REAL Christmas tree! Can't ya smell the pine needles getting ready to poke small wounds into your arms and hands in just a few short weeks?!

Imrov, Sing Alongs, Karaoke, Wii Rock Band, Board Games.
Bring your fave game (and ear plugs)!

Bring a Dinner type dish to share.(Appetizer, Main, Side or Dessert) Bonus points if home cooked, edible, AND tasty!

Can't cook ? Yes, we can still taste your dish from last year. We implore you to grab something from the local market or restaurant. Thanks!

BYOB and anything else you wish to drink.

COST: Rollback price of $2.97 - Pay at Door helps cover prizes, ice, bottled water, plasticware, cups, napkins, plates, bowls, 4 sheets of TP, therapy for Santa afterwards, etc.

Bring Friends, the more, the merrier!
