Where will you be on Saturday? That’s easy—Zeppelin Hall’s 1st Annual Ugly Sweater Christmas Party. And why will you be there? Because there is nothing you love more than partying in a sea full of ugly Christmas sweaters, battling it out for a shot at $500.

This Saturday night, the largest biergarten in the metropolitan area is challenging you to a sweater-off, an ugly Christmas sweater-off to be precise. So ravage your grandmother’s closet, head to the nearest thrift store, or swing by any hipster outpost—whatever you need to do to get your hands on the that reindeer gold.

If You're Not Tuning Into Corinne Fisher's Podcast, You're Not Living

Corinne Fisher : one half of the Guys We F*cked, The Anti Slut-Shaming podcast, dedicated stand-up comedian, writer and actor. She first hit the scene in 2010 with the debut of her one-woman show, Corinne Fisher: I STALK YOU. Since then, she's spent time on NYC's stand up scene at UCB, Broadway Comedy Club, Caroline's, Gotham, and Stand Up NY. Reflecting on her humble beginnings, Corinne noted, "Comedy has always been a part of my life in different ways. My family is just really funny. I went to film school with this idea of becoming the next Christopher Guest, I made a bunch of mockumentaries and stuff. I had a nice life till I moved to New York City and it completely fell apart. I started taking a class at UCB. Did that whole improv thing and realized I'm sort of introverted. Someone came up to me after a show asked me if I ever tried stand-up comedy. I was like, no, I love stand-up but I don't think that's my thing. But, I did it once, fell in love, and basically quit everything because I wanted to concentrate on becoming as good as I possibly could."

Review: Final Libation Party of 2014


Welcoming, vibrant, and care free - these are just a few words to describe the final Libation party of 2014 this past Thursday. The DJ spins a beat, just shy of midnight, that seems to summon the inner gods of soul. Everyone is in tune with the music, even the non-dancers of the crowd. Not one person in the building is stagnant as the speakers pump and the colors in the room spin creating a translucent underworld where everyone has come to gather for one final gathering of the year. The occasion? Standing powerfully at 5'6 in black pants and a chic grey pullover, his presence is alluring as many greet him with warm hugs and kind words. It's an obvious celebration for recording artist Manchildblack.

Comedian Justin Williams Tells Us How the Nerd Becomes the Coolest Kid in School

Hailing from Kansas City, Missouri, we bring you brilliant comedian Justin Williams. Williams realizes he would not be where he is today if it were not for his parents divorce, “In an odd way, I'm happy I experienced being broke, going to inner city schools, going to suburban schools. It's made me more well rounded. I wouldn't suggest having your parents go through a nasty divorce, but I had a good Mom and extended family, so it wasn't a disaster for my brother and I.” Due to his parent’s rough divorce, Williams was forced into attending a number of different schools, and this is where Williams found his comedic voice. Williams became an expert comedian by realizing being funny was his way “in” with the cool kids.
