Intentionally Awkward

Holiday Party

Friday, December 8

6 to 8 pm

History Center Museum
696 Monterey Street, SLO

Let’s face it — many of our best holiday memories are funny, embarrassing, or downright unsettling. Come glorify the awkwardness of your own favorite holiday moments in a participatory pop-up exhibition at the History Center and bask in the reassurance that your family isn’t the only one!

We’ll also have an ugly sweater decorating station, annoying holiday playlist, delicious treats, and seasonal libations.

Extra points if you help us get ready for the party in advance by emailing awkward holiday photos, bizarre family recipes, or song suggestions for our playlist to
