Pour Me Another Mayangeddon: Our Guide to Interesting End of the World Parties
If you're not up to having your own festivities to usher in our final hours on December 21st, not to worry. There have been plenty of people planning for a very long time how to live it up during the Mayan Apocalypse. Here is our list of interesting venues that we've found online. If you know of any other oddly interesting ways to go out with a bang, bump, gulp, vroom, grind, chomp or other end-of-world action, please share in the comments section.
In the San Francisco Bay Area, a group of cyclists will be hitting the roads, as they do each month. If you've got a bicycle and want to help The East Bay Bike Party usher in the Age of Aquarius with a final ride, be at the MacArthur BART Station in Oakland at 7:30 p.m. tonight sharp.
As their blog puts it, make it interesting, folks. "Here’s your last chance to join the party and wear that gorilla costume/ bejeweled skank suit/ leather chaps/ 80s wedding dress you got on sale. Break into the wine cellar! Dip into the Cubans! Bust out the chamois cream and grease the loincloth! You, your trusty steed, and Bike Party will rock the END OF DAYS!" Okay, then.
If you live further up north and getting dressed up for what is most likely a non-event a little too much effort for you, then simply dress down with unabashed revelers at The Fraternity Snoqualmie Family Nudist Park. The grand revelation is scheduled for Friday, Dec. 21, at 24050 SE 127th St. in Issaquah, Washington. The event is free and open to the public, and will have hot tubs and a bonfire to keep your nether regions from icing up.
To get you in the doomsday spirit, the nudist park will be playing movies such as The Day After Tomorrow”, Deep Impact and Independence Day. The end of the world will go potluck-style, so bring a dish to share on their buffet table. And watch those crumbs.
The under 21 set has their own slate of gatherings across the nation, including Sixx-Pak Entertainment’s “End of the World Party” at the SportsPlex in Feasterville, Philadelphia. There's no alcohol, so you younger folks can be safe driving back home on post-Apocalyptic back streets, after surviving a night of music, dancing, and fleeting attempts at casual last minute sex with 2,000 other partiers.Continued on the next page
