May 21 Rapture Parties – Up up and away

Savvy marketers and restaurateurs are planning 5/21 Going Away Parties, “Last Supper Parties  and Pagan Bacchanalia                                         for Saturday, May 21.

Drink the Good Wine Now

The word on the streets of San Francisco: our more evangelical friends are confident that the end is near. Billboards have cropped up and NPR has had multiple radio interviews with the cynics, the stoics and serious Christian believers.

As a rule, San Franciscans tend to be a little more blasé about most things – like Y2K and rapture. For some, the only kind of rapture they know is from the Gilbert and Sullivan musical Pirates of Penzance.

Lucky Berkeley residents can easily escape to Mars, Jupiter and Venus on Saturday.

Why Too, Kay?

Remember the hugely publicized Y2K hoax of 1999? Scores of people were convinced that every computer would be fried and  the world’s infrastructure would evaporate. Therefore,  we would all move to the land between science and superstition: the Twilight Zone.

Rapture Parties

From Sunny Seattle to Syracuse   Rapture Parties are in the making. If you are not up for that, plan a Merry Month of May soiree.

Here are six upcoming May days to celebrate, that is, if you’re not busy flying up, up and away on May 21, 2011.

May 21 Armed Forces Day – third Saturday of month
