"This is how we do Christmas in Kansas City," say four bros in holiday wool, and with that you are brought into a universe of tipsy santas and elves. The Travel Channel filmed last year's Ugly Christmas Sweater Party in Kansas City and aired the results last week on its Christmas Crazier program. It's a look back at the mobile-kitchen days of Port Fonda and what happens when someone spends four and a half hours bedazzling.
This year's party is Friday, December 14, at the Tower Tavern. The festivities begin at 8:30 p.m., and tickets are $60. If you pay an additional $15 for a VIP ticket, you can come at 7:30 p.m. Proceeds from the event benefit Operation Breakthrough.
