When: Tue, Dec 13th @ 7pm
Everyone should know about Festivus by now. It has been around for over 50 years. For those of you that lead a sheltered life, take 3.5 minutes out of your online holiday shopping time life to hear about this great holiday (via Seinfeld). Now you know we here at FBC tend to do things a little differently, so we will do our own take on Festivus.
So, first the very best part of our Festivus ride...holiday outfits. If you need some inspiration, here are some ideas: ugly holiday sweater, skier, snowman, naughty elf (please!), santa suit or whatever. Feel free to decorate your bike with lights, bows, wreaths and holiday cheer too.
Next go shopping for a gift for our FBC gift exchange ($5 limit) and bring it wrapped and unmarked.
Lastly, get it all together and ride your bike over to Eich's.
We will leave Eich's and do a shorter route through town while sticking to main arteries if there is foul weather. We will end somewhere warm and full of glee. We will gather around our durable and strong aluminum pole, flanked by all our presents. You see this is somewhat of a hybrid Festivus with a metal pole and gifts, but there will be NO airing of grievances or feets of strength...well, there may be those things depending on the hour and amount of spiked eggnog. Anyways, at our destination we will commence with our annual FBC Gift Exchange (if you don't bring a gift, you can sit in the corner like a old miserable scrooge) as we sip holiday cheer... and hopefully someone will have too much, get rowdy and embarrass themselves...hopefully it is not me.
