Festivus for the Rest of Us
Get ready to air some grievances and perform a few feats of strength.
In 1997, Christmas changed. With a single episode of Seinfeld, the world became privy to a new form of holiday celebration that eschewed other traditions and denominations. Instead of a tree, an unadorned pole gets pride of place. Rather than share happy stories, everyone gathered airs their grievances. And, instead of settling down on the couch after a hearty meal, attendees compete in feats of strength.
Okay, so maybe you still enjoy tinsel, turkey and street cricket with your family on December 25. Even so, The Glenmore is making sure you can have some Festivus fun as well. The pub's shindig takes place on the official Festivus date of December 23.
The Glenmore's rooms will be 'themed' like Jerry's apartment and the rooftop will have live music going from 3pm. In keeping with tradition, there'll be a grievances wall, so you can air yours and be infuriated by everyone else's. Not so Seinfeld are the $12 Aperol spritzes. Don't forget to dress up, too — there will be Festivus prizes.
