Face it, ugly sweater parties are a thing now, and since you’ll likely end up at one for work and one for your friends and probably one for your family, you might as well sport your strongest look. And that look is the Miller Lite sweater they’re giving away (along with other winter accessories) at Palmer’s on Friday. All you have to do for a chance to win is show up, but drinking some beer will help (being in the dive, not your chance of winning). Friday, 6-8 PM. Free. —W.R. Grace
