End of the World Party

Skeptics -

I'm sorry to inform you, but Mayan prophecy predicts that the world as we know it will end on December 21st, 2012. We can do nothing to stop it.

There is only one rational response: party like it's the end of the world!

Join other lovers of science and reason to celebrate the almost certain survival of the human species on a non-catastrophic Friday in a non-apocalyptic year. There will be food, drinks, music, games...

COVER is $5. All proceeds to support the Phoenix Area Skeptics Society.

The Amazing Coconauts will go on around 9pm and the Minibosses will go on around 10:45. Get there early - you do not want to miss a thing! We also have some great door giveaways for the people who come early.

*** UPDATE 11/19 *** We have just confirmed that the Minibosses (http://www.minibosses.com/) and the Amazing Coconauts (http://www.theamazingcoconauts.com/) will be performing at the party. DO NOT MISS THIS. You are in for a treat.

- Matt

      Of course I did not forget Rose intentionally, she was in the first draft, that did not upload and some how missed her on the 2nd Post. Great Job Rose. :-) And everyone that participated.

    Thanks Matt, Amanda, Caroline and Rose for putting this together. I had a great time. You need to do these more often as I'm sure there is always someone out there proclaiming the end is near.

    hey all, i have a ride home, but wondering if anyone from cen. phx. might let me hitch a ride out, so i don't have to leave my car overnight?

    December 21, 2012

    • Lynn

  • Patrick

    will we need to present a ticket or what? And also will there be change on site because I rarely carry 5's around with me. More often I have 10 and 20's.

    December 21, 2012

    • Amanda B.

      No ticket - Pay cover at the door. Yes there will be change. :)

    Come early because we will be giving away high-priced comic BOOKS (actual books - not a flimsy magazine) featuring the artwork of Frank Frazetta. They are in limited supply so be one of the first 50 people to arrive to get one.

    Haven't been to a PASS event yet, this might be the first one, sounds like a good time and a great excuse to join the club!

    We should have a count-down "ball-drop". Does anyone have a big Mayan calendar?

    This should be great! I haven't seen the Minibosses in years and it will be fun to hang at one of the clubs I use to play at. Thanks to all who put this together!

    Hey guys, If anyone has any raffle prizes they'd like to donate (or have connections to local businesses who may be willing to donate something), please let me know! We are trying to get together some fun raffle prizes. Best, Amanda

    I always find it kind of awesome that skeptics throw a party whenever someone claims the world is about to end.

    2 · November 18, 2012

  • Matt L.

    I'm working on some great prizes and giveaways. Stay tuned!

      Great, comrade! I love "super secret" stuff!

    Oops! There is a conflict with holding the event at the Humanist Community Center on December 21. The building will be in use. I think that Saturday night the 22nd is still available, but that won't help us.

    I regret not checking the schedule before suggesting the facility.

    October 7, 2012

    • Amanda B.

      No worries. It was still a good suggestion. We have other options we are pursuing.

    For a location, how about the Humanist Community Center, 827 W. 8th Street, Mesa, 85201? www.hsgp.org

    October 6, 2012

    • Amanda B.

      Bruce - That is an excellent idea! Thank you for the suggestion. I will add it to the list of possibilities.

      I like that idea as well! The building is very pleasant...they have a kitchen and everything!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
