Happy Festivus everyone! Festivus for the rest of us!!
Our friends at Drink:Eat:Play are up to it again. This time it’s an 80’s Inspired Festivus Party benefiting animals in need and the SPCA LA chapter just in time for the holiday’s. Support animals and have a great time in the process!
The original holiday includes novel practices such as the “Airing of Grievances”, in which each person tells everyone else all the ways they have disappointed him or her over the past year. Also, after the Festivus meal, the “Feats of Strength” are performed, involving wrestling the head of the household to the floor, with the holiday ending only if the head of the household is actually pinned. While this may get us kicked out of most public venues, we’ve adjusted OUR tradition to include the following:
1) Attendees must dress in their ugliest holiday sweater. If you don’t have anything sufficiently ugly, feel free to dress in 80s attire.
2) Money donated to the Human Fund: Money For the People will make its way to the SPCA LA . Not in some Bernie Madoff sleezy way, but rather 100% of proceeds will support the animals. Admission is $30, but enter “Facebook” to get half off. To purchase tickets, click here: https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/90675
3) Every Festivus must have a theme. Ours is 80s. And yes, we’ll have an 80s tribute band.
