Festivus

Let's get together and blow off some steam and celebrate the alternative holiday. For those that don't know, Festivus is characterized by:

-The airing of grievances against your fellow Geeks
-Feats of strength
-The Festivus pole

According to tradition, the celebration doesn't stop until the head of household loses in a wrestling match.

We'll start at JC Fogarty's in Bronxville for food and some drinks, then take the festivities back to my house for late night fun, games, and shenanigans.

    Alright gang there are a lot of Geeks showing up to this one. So we're going to have to move to a larger venue, JC Fogarty's.


    We're not making any reservations or reserving any rooms, so plan accordingly if you want to eat there. Around 9:30 or 10 we'll transition to my house. You're very welcomed to bring your favorite beverages and games. I'm going to put on some music and will have a few tables set up.

    Don't count on any feats of strength from me... I got kicked in the side and am having rib troubles. Who knew 6 year olds packed such force?!

    This sounds like many kinds of awesome. Unfortunately I leave for skiing that day.

    December 23, 2013

  • Mike

    I have to work late that day!

    December 22, 2013

    • John F.

      you can just come straight to my house afterwards if that works

      December 23, 2013

    • Steve R.

      Are we still at Growlers, or are we changing venues?

      December 23, 2013

    December 22, 2013

  • John F.

      Actually I may rant on a bunch of stand up comedians backing out (to be fair they weren't going to be paid) of that event in New Rochelle that I was pushing here and at another group a few weeks back! ;)

      December 15, 2013

    • Damon

    One of these days, I say, ONE OF THESE DAYS, I will RSVP for an event and not need to cancel! That would, of course, require a Festivus miracle...
