We'd love to make all this happen for free, but we can't, so plates will be $5 apiece. That includes all the bread and soda and stuff, it's $5 to get in.
So there you go. Friday. September 23. 6:00 p.m. Food. Put it in your face.
"a non-profit organization with a mission to connect people through lending to alleviate poverty. Leveraging the internet and a worldwide network of microfinance institutions, Kiva lets individuals lend as little as $25 to help create opportunity around the world."We think that's a good cause in and of itself, but there's another reason. You see, Kiva organizes itself into teams of donors, and they keep track of how many members give how much via how many loans. You know who's number one on that list of 17,100 teams?
|Know who's number four? Europe. Yeah.|
But excuse me, you point out, what are we supposed to do during dinner? Talk? Don't be silly, we're gonna have…
I can tell your minds are slightly blown away by now, beginning to melt slightly in the heat of awesomeness that will be this event. Well, brace yourselves, my pretties, because there's also going to be—
A GODDAMN PIRATE COSTUME PARTY!
Holy effin' yes please, am I right? We all know that the original Pastafarians were pirates, and that they were peaceful explorers, not the plundering rapists that Christian propaganda has turned them into. In honor of their piracy, we're gonna have ourselves a good old-fashioned costume contest. Prizes will include Olive Garden gift cards (because what could be more perfect a tribute to a god of pasta than unlimited pasta for the low low price of $8.99?), the Pastafarian Bible, and hell, maybe t-shirts if we can get our shit together and make some. Again, updates will come on the Facebook page.
We will also be handing out/distributing/attacking people with these little ones. Let Angus know if you want some (like if you're in a class that seems particularly pertinent).
Here's the official page of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, in case you don't know much about His Noodliness. We'll be reading a bit about it at the dinner, but if you want to brush up out of a pure lust for knowledge, then go for it. Lust your little hearts out.
And finally, we need your help! If you want to help out with passing out mini posters (oh hells yes we have mini-posters), promoting in general, or you have questions about the event or whatever, you tell Angus. He's the Director of Promotion, and he wrote this whole page, so that means he refers to himself in the third person, and if that didn't just blow your mind then I don't know what will.
We'll see you soon.
