Here comes Santa Claus...right down Rockbar's lane. Rockbar is hosting its first ugly Xmas sweater party tonight. And guess who's in town? You got it. Jolly old Saint Nick will make an appearance, and he's bringing....well, backup. "Naughty elves" (and if you've ever been to Rockbar, you know exactly what that means) and "Magic Cyclops" will help Santa help you have a helluva time.
For only $1, you can have your picture taken sitting on Santa's lap and, for the same price, knock back a shot of Mad Dog (read: cheap, fortified wine). Still not convinced? Admission is free and local spinners DJ Rockstar and Sid Pink will provide the festive tunes.
The shindig starts at 9 p.m. at Rockbar, 3015 East Colfax Avenue. And feel free to get naughty, because rumor has it that Santa's leaving his list at home.
