Can you believe how fast the month of December has flown by? I’ve been stacking up my fake Twinkies and storing up my water jugs. Hope you’re doing the same. But hey, it’s not just about all work and no play. Sometimes, once all the plans are in place, it might be time to party. You know, just to sneak out to blow off a bit of steam, before hard core life hits?
I’ve rounded up a few choices places for you to go if you prefer to ring in the new world order with other like minded folks. I don’t have a master list, for every city that might be represented by our readership, but here are a few choice ones. If you don’t see your area represented here, just Google ‘apocalypse party’ followed by the name of your area. And if nothing shows up then, hey, that’s a sign that you are in charge of pulling off the party of your life.
If you’re in the New York City area, check out this list, put together by the Business Insider (which, by the way, is a respectable periodical, that makes those of us planning for the apocalypse sound a smidge less nutty). There are ten great choices on the list. Surely you can find one that fits your tastes.
Now let’s head down to the New Orleans area. I’d encourage you to visit this area anyway, as they build back their tourism after the floods, but what better time to visit the Big Easy than the day before the zombies attack? Here’s the list of great parties you can pick from if you happen to be down south.
Moving on east, over to Philly. Why not celebrate the big night at the Penn Museum? They’re planning a rocking bash. Just a side note: If you live in the Philly area you really should be reading Geekadelphia. It’s a more local version of our amazing GeekMom blog.
And yes, believe it or not, there will be a big apocalypse bash in Salt Lake City too! Here’s the link for more information, if you happen to live near that Great Salt Lake.
Now, let’s just stretch our imaginations and envision a scenario where the Mayan calendar was wrong. I know, I know, it’s almost impossible to imagine. But say the 22nd comes and goes and the world seems the same. No worries. You can still get your zombie fix by entering the Race of your Life. It’s an awesome event where you try to outrun zombies as they try to steal your “health” (which are flag football flags). It will be the perfect practice run in case the calendar readers were just a little off and the zombies hit this time next year instead.
Yeah, I have a few Oreo cookies mixed in with my fake Twinkies, so I’m good, either way.
