This Ain’t Your Grandma’s Holiday Party!

Ho! Ho! Ho! The holiday season is officially upon us. Assuming you weren’t trampled to death by a Black Friday mob, you’re probably ready to go out and enjoy some holiday festivities. Well there’s plenty to choose from, but if you’re like me, you’d rather not bother with the traditional fare. You’d rather set your sights on events that challenge the traditional view of the most sacred of American family traditions and provide a little comedic stress relief. Here are a few of my favorites happening around the country. If you’re lucky, one of these events might just be in your neck of the woods. Read the rest of this entry »
