Free! Fashion! Food!

Potluck: Doors 6:30
Clothing Swap: all night, baby
Fashion Show: 12 midnight, hosted by $teven Ra$pa and Tarin Towers

Bring clothes to swap and food to share. Leftover clothes go to St. Anthony's. More details below.

*The 10th Annual Eat and Be Mary!*
Potluck • Clothing Swap • Fashion Show

Yes, it's hard to believe, but we're doing it again this year. Time to drag out those dusty musty garments that have accumulated in your closet all year; Time to pit your skills against those scary kitchen implements in an attempt to whip up something truly inspired; and Time to gather your nerves and show us what you've got. Literally!

Note :: Due to the constraints of the new location (and our sheer laziness) - *THERE WILL BE NO TALENT SHOW* this year. Repeat: There will be no talent show this year. Spontaneous acts of bewildering & unusual talents will be encouraged - just not organized on a stage. Pick a corner and let 'er rip! But we will be rockin' the pile and celebrating in our own special way.

Still uncertain of the concept? Check out the amazing Tomlapse video from last year (thanks to the kind & talented thomas and peef).

* A fork :: A plate
* A sense of humour & unbridled enthusiasm
* Plan ahead & Get plenty of rest
* We're a veggie friendly habitat.
* volunteer
* /Important Note/ :: Keep an eye on your keys and any clothing you
do not wish to lose (i.e., what you wore in, your shoes, your
jacket - you'd be surprised how many people do this). The pile is
very absorbent!

Things to forget:

* Any strange or unusual personal talents that you were honing all
year to flaunt in front of your friends on our stage. But feel
free to spontaneously whip it out and show us what you got.
* The old location :: I'm sure some of you will go there anyway

***** This is not just an ordinary potluck *****

S P R E A D T H E W O R D (I apologize if you receive this more than once)

Please bring all the CLEAN clothing you've been meaning to give to Goodwill or wherever. And don't bring just crap, we will use it in the Fashion Show and then donate whatever clothing left at the crime scene to the St. Anthony's Foundation which provides clothing to homeless & low-income families free of charge.

****below the below
Please don't bring anything but clothes. Everything that falls into the category of "Not-Clothes" will most likely be thrown out.

*_HOW YOU CAN HELP_* ------>

This event is a huge undertaking. And has somehow survived the last 10 years without charging admission. But the event will not happen without your help. Help create a true labor of love that has brought so much unbridled silliness to so many people for years.

Please give back to the event ::

1. *volunteer for SETUP*
* Friday 6pm - April 20
* Saturday noon - April 21
2. *Volunteer for CLEANUP*
* Sunday NOON - April 22
3. *Help organize the FASHION SHOW*
4. If you can think of something that will add to the event or
something you've always wanted to unleash on the masses - this is
your big chance. Let me know.

Please contact me directly if you can help :: [email protected].

Thank you in advance.
