Everyone in Bushwick has been doing their part to get into the Holiday Spirit, and Morgantown bar Alaska is no exception. Last week they hosted the first annual Great Alaskan Sweater Off, an intense competition between Bushwick fiercest Sweater-Wearers. Although I didn’t win (or even make the top 12!), I was glad to be found among a group of warm people, in a cozy bar, wearing snuggly sweaters. The unique variety of found sweaters- from classic Christmas sweaters to some not so traditional- including a fuzzy abomnible snowman sweater and a trout-covered garb was uncanny. Read on for polaroids of all the contestants, the runners up, and our personal favorite…
The Judges were a board of meticulously selected Fashionistas, including Kathleen Flood, Tim Pippio (you might know his as the sound guy at our fave venue Delinquency), Lisa Noble, and Will Samsom. Prizes were actually very rewarding- first prize was a $50 bar tab at Alaska. Fuzzy snowman girl, I envy you.
Thanks to Skyler at Alaska for sharing these fantastic Polaroids… looking forward to the next competition at Alaska and even more looking forward to wearing my (abstract) Christmas sweater on Christmas tomorrow! Happy Holidays, all2012-12-24
