Success! You're on the list.

Before you seriously consider wearing pajamas outside of your home today, weigh the costs and rewards. Yes, you will look like an escapee from St. Elizabeths. On the other hand, if you happen to shop in Maryland’s wind-chime capital, you’ll get discounts! Today, the city of Takoma Park hosts its 12th annual Pajamarama, a promotional holiday-shopping event during which participating local stores slash prices for customers who deign to shop in their sleepwear. Ho, ho, ho! It’s all in good fun. So throw on that nightie and commence bargain-hunting, denizens of Takoma Park—because for some, shaving a couple of bucks off a tool set at Ace Hardware is well worth the cost of looking like a tool.

The event runs from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m. at locations throughout Takoma Park. mainstreettakoma.org.
