Local chain Boston Burger Company is known for its “freak frappes,” colossal frappes topped with everything from bacon to shortcake to doughnuts.

This December, BBC’s Cambridge location is hosting holiday-themed affairs at which participants can create their own versions of the well-known desserts.

Members of the BBC team will be on hand and armed with gumdrops, M&M’s, candy canes, sprinkles, cookies, and more to help inventors frappe away and make desserts ready for an Instagram close-up, according to a Facebook listing. The events will also feature holiday music, and the person donning the ugliest Christmas sweater will receive a gift card to the restaurant.


The first “#FreakFrappe Festivus,” scheduled for Dec. 5, sold out within hours, according to BBC, but $20 tickets are still available for a second, on Tuesday, Dec. 12 at 6:30 p.m.
