The Airing of the Grievances Bar Tour (A Festivus for the rest of us)!

  • December 7, 2013 · 8:00 PM

Back in my hometown, we have an annual "Airing of the Grievances" Bar Tour where we celebrate "Festivus" from the famous episode of "Seinfeld". I'd love to get one started here. Basically, we hit some bars, air some grievances, and wash them away with some spirits to cleanse ourselves for the upcoming year. Traditionally celebrated on Dec. 23, we'll do it the first Saturday in December when hopefully folks will be in town.

Let's start at Rotelli's and then we can move around to other bars in the area.

EDIT (12/4/13): Just a few more days until Festivus! I made reservations at Rotelli. Just tell the hostess you're with our group. I'm planning on eating dinner before the drinks and grievances start flowing, but unlike those stuffy winter holiday parties, Festivus is informal. Eat/drink what and when you want! *Participate in the "Feats of Strength" at your own risk.

Text or call me @[masked] if you are planning on joining later and need to find us.

    I'm glad everyone could make it! We had a great time despite the issues with the restaurant. I hope we can make this an annual event! Once again, Happy Festivus!

      Rotelli is on the corner of McCormick and Calder Way. Just say you are with our group or mention my name. I doubt there will be any other large groups there. There is a link to a map if you click on the Rotelli link in the location section.

    That's also the same night as the last S.C. Roller Derby game though which is supposedly 5-7:30pm so this should work! Yeah!

    I have tried to assign a date, but it isn't working. Dec. 7 @ 8:00 PM!

    • Catherine

      Thanks. Am I able to edit the description/location or do I need to send those to you?

      Give it a try and let me know. I haven't found the setting to allow others to make changes. it must be defaulted to only let Organizer/Co-Organizers to edit events. Probably been that way since I took it over a year ago. I'll try to find the settings to change it if you can't make any edits.

    I like the idea! Airing of grievances could get interesting after a few drinks and people might start feats of strength...
