Festivus!

January 13, 2018, 7:00pm

A bit after the chaos of Ye Olde Standard Holidays but close enough to (maybe) still be included in "Happy Holidays," Festivus is upon us! They say you can't go home again, but home is where your friends are. (Okay, wait, that's also the internet.) So we're going "home" again... well, to *A* home, anyway. It's a potluck, so prepare your best snacks! To answer your many, many Festivus questions: Yes, there will be a Festivus Pole.* Yes, there will be an Airing of Grievances.** Feats of Strength*** are subject to advance review, but may include thumb wars, staring contests, Rock Paper Scissors tournaments and displays of mental fortitude.**** We may also recount tales of Festivus Miracles.***** Festivus is FREE to attend, just bring something for the potluck table! We will be accepting donations to The Human Fund throughout the evening as well. Hope to see you there! ------------------ *Festivus pole is not for dancing, nor for jousting during Feats of Strength. **Grievances may also be conveyed via Post-It(s) attached to the Festivus Pole. BYOPI. ***Feats of actual strength are unsanctioned by Chicago Skeptics, the homeowners, and probably CPD depending on your level of enthusiasm. ****Smartphones are disallowed in contests of mental strength. Dumbphones are hilarious. *****Sorry, we're fresh out of asterisks. It's a potluck, so please bring something tasty to share. Food or drink, it's up to you!
