3rd annual Festivus -The Holiday for the Rest of Us

Leave it to Larkinville to continue to roll out fun events throughout the year. It seems as if there is an event, party or festival for every occasion. One of the more interesting festivals to come down the pike is Festivus – The Holiday for the Rest of Us!

“Seinfeld lovers are preparing for the Airing of the Grievances, Feats of Strength and “Festival of Miracles” that all coincide with the Seinfeld TV show. And don’t forget the unadorned aluminum Festivus pole!”

It’s no Festivus miracle that Hydraulic Hearth, Community Beer Works, and the S. Thomas Group will again team to present a celebration of Festivus, a tradition unlike any other in Buffalo.

  • Feats of strength
  • Airing of grievances
  • An Elaine dance-off
  • Food and drink specials including Snapple punch and Papi’s handmade pizza
  • An unadorned Festivus pole

“Festivus isn’t just my favorite year-end holiday,” said Community Beer Works president Ethan Cox, “but really my favorite imaginary, TV-show-inspired holiday of the entire calendar year!”

Added Hydraulic Hearth proprietor Harry Zemsky, “When you first see that aluminum pole, with its high strength-to-weight ratio…it’s special.”

“The holiday for the rest of us” will return to Hydraulic Hearth on Friday, December 23rd.

Festivities will begin at 8:30pm with DJs “Puffy Shirt” Cutler along with Shane & Tone providing holiday funk and soul, which will follow the already sold-out Seinfeld trivia competition beginning at 6pm. Complimentary pretzels, Junior Mints and Jujyfruits will be offered; prizes will be awarded for best Seinfeld-themed costumes.
