*Update: There are so many special things happening with this event! Special keg at Roscoe's and the money all goes to Oregon Humane; Montavilliage Tree Lot is hosting an open jam session by the fire - so bring your instrument of choice! (and they are donating all the decorated trees to SnowCap Community Charities for their clients!!); music at Beer Bunker; caroling and hot cocoa at Bipartisan; butternut homous from Ya Hala; hat making demo with local hat designer Elizabeth Rohloff and new artwork by Anne Rogers at Union Rose; ornament decorating at Pottery Fun; Crank Roasting coffee "hot toddies" at Oregon Bike Shop; 3-D photos with Goat and Yeti at Over and Out to capture you and your pals in your best ugly sweaters, each pic will come with a pair of 3-D glasses!; worst dressed competition at Maven Collection; prize wheel at It's a Gift; free popcorn at the Academy Theater; and, if you're feeling really adventurous, seasonal tattoo specials at Bless This Mess Tattoo!

*Update: Personal Beast is doing pet photos with Santa from 5pm-7pm, free treats if your pet is in a Christmas sweater! I'm taking my dog to get his photo around 5pm if anyone wants to bring their furry friend and join me. I'll be there for a brief time, take him home, and then return for the 7:30pm meeting time.

Be sure to check out all the updates to the event via the Facebook link below.*
This is my neighborhood! Let's meet and start with a warm beverage at Bipartisan and stroll down the street and check out what's going on. We'll plan to end at either Roscoe's or Vintage for another warming beverage and might find a place to get a snack, too. Wear your ugly sweater, Santa suit or fancy duds for the photo booth and bring your sing-along voice!
It would be really nice if you would also rsvp on the main FB event here: https://www.facebook.com/events/614142925313321
Celebrate this holiday season with your friends and neighbors in the vibrant Montavilla neighborhood! We will have a little bit of everything: beer, cocktail and food specials up and down Stark Street (76th to 82nd Ave), free snacks, live music and caroling and TWO photo booths, including a 3D photo booth with Goat and Yeti.

We are encouraging party-goers to get in the spirit of the season by wearing their "Ugliest Christmas Sweater Ever" or their Best Santa Suit (we know you have one!). There may even be a prize for the best outfit!

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
