2012 Recap & 4th Annual Ugly Christmas Sweater Party December 30 2012
Our 4th Annual Ugly Christmas Sweater Party was a huge success and a great way to end the 2012 season! We had such a great turnout - the bar was packed, the bowling lanes were full as hundreds of our friends, family and complete strangers gathered wearing their ugliest and tackiest Christmas sweaters to have a great time and raise money for StandUp2Cancer. We're proud to say that with the help of over 20 local businesses and all those in attendance, we generated over $800 worth of raffle prizes and over $500 in cash donations!
Thank you so much to all of our customers and business partners that helped make 2012 another record year! Without you all, we'd just be three guys in a warehouse filled with wool, cotton and synthetic blend materials - THANK YOU!
We wish you all the best in 2013!
Team Ugly - Adam, Brian & Kevin
We really appreciate the help from our friends and local Crown Point, Indiana businesses that generously provided gifts towards our fundraiser - Thank you very much!

The party was rockin' as Sixteen Candles put on one heck of a show!

Team Ugly's Favorite Holiday Movies July 26 2011
Team Ugly believes that tradition is what makes the holiday season the best time of year, and we think one of the best traditions is watching our favorite holiday movie.
To us, 'tis the season once we've enjoyed the following classics:
By the way, what are your favorite holiday movies?
Brian's pick:"A Christmas Story"
Why "A Christmas Story"?
I love this movie for a number of reasons and can relate to Ralphie on a few levels:
I am from Northwest Indiana, which is where the movie takes place, and just like Ralphie yearned for a red rider BB gun with a compass in the stock and a thing that tells time, I yearned for a Bears pullover Starter jacket. As we all know - Ralphie got his gun, but I never got my Bears jacket :( . Then again, I avoided shooting my eye out, so we're even.
Adam's pick:"Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer"
Rudolph is an inspiring tale that lets everybody know that no matter how many times you get left out or get made fun of, you can still end up being awesome.
Kevin's pick:"Die Hard"
Why "Die Hard"?
While "Die Hard" is not your traditional Christmas movie, I'd like to point out that if it wasn't for Christmas officer John McClain would not have been at Nakatomi Plaza on that fateful night. Also, there is something about watching Bruce Willis shoot bad guys in the face and blowing stuff up that makes standing in the long lines at the mall much easier.
There you have it folks, these are our favorite holiday movies, let us know what yours are!
