Western Division’s Holiday Ugly Sweater Party at All Season Brewing

Twas the night of December 13th and all through the venue, all the creatures were stirring, with Ugly Sweaters in full view!

The TEA Western Division had their much deliberated, much celebrated, much anticipated, Ugly Sweater Party on this chilly winter’s eve at All Season Brewing in the Miracle Mile district of Los Angeles. Around 50 merry-making Western Division members were in attendance and happy to partake again in an actual, live, in-person event!

Just like they did at the in-person mixer a month ago, All Season Brewing served up cold drinks and hot food in their wonderfully restored, and all decked out for the holidays, mid-century Firestone tire shop.

The mood was festive and jovial while some played skee-ball, others just relaxed and caught up with industry friends.  Everyone enjoyed their drinks and poked fun at the shameless Ugly Sweaters while Christmas music played in the background.

It was a great way to wind down another tumultuous year and look forward to the holidays and the hopeful promises of better times around the corner in 2022.

A very merry thank you to our main sponsor Lightswitch, for providing free drinks to all attendees.  Thanks as well to our in-kind sponsors  Color Reflections (printing of the drink tickets), Nassal (holiday center-pieces), and HYPERVSN (holographic imagery of all the sponsors' logos, and fun holiday holographs).
