We know you’re itching to get a few more miles out of your favorite ugly holiday sweater and squeeze in some last-minute holiday shopping. That’s why 90.5 WESA’s Sarah Kovash, Yelp Pittsburgh’s Rachel Carlson and Josh Raulerson of the PA Environmental Council have you covered.

Kick off your weekend with some cross-holiday fun at Wigle Whiskey in the Strip District for their Chrismukkah whiskey release. The distillery will debut its Northern Exposure (aged in maple barrels!) whiskey and the Demeter Landlocked, aged for two years. It’s $10 and a sure opportunity for an ugly sweater.

In fact, you can take your sweater over to Carmella’s on the South Side later that night for the ugly sweater competition and some craft drinks. You could win a $50 gift card. Or test out your sweater at Mt. Lebanon’s Hitchhiker Brewing on Saturday night. You’ll have to show up to find out what the prize is.

And if you’re in need of some last minute gifts, check out Vintage and Handmade holiday at the Ace Hotel Saturday. You can check out local wares from more than 30 vendors – and get a discount on a room if you decide to make it a #staycation.

If you stay the night, it’ll be easy to catch the Yappy Holidays market on Sunday, for pets and humans! You can donate to the Animal Rescue League while you’re there too.
