Town Hall to celebrate 6th annual Festivus tomorrow

Town Hall to celebrate 6th annual Festivus tomorrow
Ed Neaton

It's "Festivus for the rest of us" at Town Hall Brewery tomorrow. The annual Seinfeld-inspired tradition eschews religion and commercialism in favor of community, and that's just what Town Hall sought in hosting it.

"[We wanted] to bring the Town Hall community together before everyone leaves or becomes preoccupied with the holiday season," explains owner Pete Rifakes. "People celebrate their faiths in a variety of ways, and Festivus allows us to create an event without displacing any of our customers."

Town Hall to celebrate 6th annual Festivus tomorrow

For Town Hall, Festivus means uniting everyone with a complimentary Festivus beer (Imperial Wit) and complimentary Glug (Swedish spiced wine), in addition to the "traditional" Festivus pole, a bonfire, the Airing of the Grievances, the Feats of Strength, and M&M cupcakes. The Imperial Wit, a Belgian white, has a strong orange character and, per Rifakes, "will help keep you warm outside by the fire." The Glug offers a touch of seasonal variety.

Town Hall's Festivus is held on the brewery's patio -- in rain, snow, or sunshine -- so dress accordingly and bone up on those Seinfeld references.
