If you are not familiar with Towel Day, don't panic! Towel Day, held every May 25, is a tribute to the "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" and celebrates author Douglas Adams' contributions to science fiction; you can learn more at www.towelday.org
A towel, Adams wrote, is "the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have."
While I don't actually recommend hitchhiking here, I do recommend bringing (or wearing?) your favorite towel on the evening of May 25 to my house for a casual gameroom & backyard potluck party. There will be air hockey, games, drinks and conversation. And maybe we'll light up the firepit and/or put in a movie later in the evening.
Along with a towel, please bring a dish to share.
BTW, May 25 is also "Geek Pride Day", so we have even more reason to celebrate (even if you aren't an Adams fan):
This Saturday is Towel Day, Star Wars' anniversary, and the Glorious 25 of May! In fact, it's so jam-packed with awesome we like to call it Geek Pride Day.
