The Carter Building, one of Raleigh’s only family-owned commercial buildings and an artist studio enclave, will host their next quarterly party: Sip + Shop: The Ugly Holiday Sweater Contest on Friday, December 15th from 6:30 to 10:30 p.m. at 14-22 Glenwood Ave, Raleigh, NC 27603
Come get your weekend started right in this historic building, which houses such artists and businesses as Front Row Cosmetics, Katie Callahan & Co (specializing in antique and vintage fine jewelry), Sound Off Records & Hi-Fi, Zass Designs, Colors Yoga, Nail Yeah and several artists of all mediums.
By wearing your ugliest holiday sweater you can enter to win various prizes and patrons are also being asked to bring a gently used sweater or coat to donate to charity. In exchange, they will receive freebies, discounts and specials all throughout the building, as well as up and down Glenwood. There’s free parking for the evening across the street from our building, so stop in, go get your BOGO cupcakes at The Cupcake Shoppe and enjoy your night.

To get you in a festive mood, bartenders will be on hand creating holiday inspired adult beverages for you to sip while you saunter around from studio to studio. Individual studios will have various delicacies, as well and rumor has it there will even be a hot cocoa bar. To make sure your tummy is full, head outside to The Cousin’s Maine Lobster Food truck for a bite to eat, and get your feet tapping to live musical performances by local musicians. Guys who aren’t in the shopping mood can hang in the Dude Lounge, which will be housed in local app developer MedSign’s studio in the building.
