NYC Atheists’ Solstice Party to Feature Popular ‘Open Mike’
Dec. 16 Festivities Celebrate the Silly Season!
New York--(Dec.12, 2011) Enjoy the joyous Changing of the Seasons surrounded by cheery Atheist friends in a relaxed, charming old French provincial restaurant, Les Sans Culottes, known--of all things--for its sausage-tree appetizers. (The restaurant name means “The Pantsless”--but bear in mind, that is not the dress code!)
Music, comedy, French provincial food with jubilant people who share your secular views--what a festive way to greet the new Season!
There will be an Open Mike for those who feel moved, after a glass of wine or so, to go up to the mike and tell a joke, play a musical instrument, sing a song, recite a poem, confess your sins, wish someone a Happy Birthday, declare your love to your Significant Other, cry in your beer or curse the Republican Right. Talent is not a requirement; we applaud all efforts!
Is Santa a Cargo Cult?
After all, this is the Silly Season! Giant electric snowflakes hang over Fifth Avenue! According to a children’s ancient cargo-cult, a purported benefactor dressed in red is said to fly over the nation in an air-born sled, dropping toys down chimneys. With such fantastical ideas entangling us in the Silly Season, how can we remain somber or solemn?
All Atheists making efforts to be Serious will be given 40 lashes with a limp French sausage. All foolishness, wackiness and general absurdity will be rewarded with cheers, whistles and wild applause.
