GO FUGLY: You have a couple of choices tonight if you insist on continuing the hideous sweater tradition. Division Ale House (1942 W Division St) hosts its Ugly Sweater Party, offering up a free infused shot for anyone working the theme. Free live music from Jason Sturmon between 10 p.m.-1 a.m. Timothy O'Toole's Pub (622 N. Fairbanks Ct.) is also all about the hideous holiday apparel tonight, ponying up cash prizes for the fugliest sweater at 9 p.m. "Bad Santa" will be in the house, enticing guests with $3 "Bad Santa Shots," or fuel your evening with a host of other drink specials, games and giveaways.
ROCK A ONE*Z: If ugly clothing is a bit too much for you, head over to E Street Denim Co. where label California Christiania Republic is celebrating the debut of its One*Z jumpsuit with a party featuring reality star Dave Lingwood of MTV's "The Buried Life" and 15-year-old YouTube lip-sync sensation Keenan Cahill. Proceeds from the event benefit Cahill's battle with Maroteaux Lamy, a rare genetic metabolic disorder. 6-10 p.m., 1876 First St (Highland Park)
BURGERS AND BOOZE: Tonight's a good opportunity to check out new Little Italy hotspot Three Aces when the rock and roll-themed joint serves up the Hammer of the Gods: A Burger Pairing of Epic (Pro)Portions.
