Snuggies Are Taking Over the World

San Francisco to host city's first Snuggie Fest



    Snuggies Are Taking Over the World
    If you see this lady on the street you may want to let her know of the Snuggie fest.

    Never underestimate the stupidity of people. Or at least the bad fashion sense. In another sign that the Apocalypse is upon us, the ultra strange, and borderline annoying, Snuggie is being celebrated.

    Not sure what the Snuggie is? Well, don't feel bad. It is just the blanket that you wear as clothes and the strangeness that it warmly envelopes has become a phenomenon to the point that San Francisco will hold the city's first Snuggie Pub Crawl on Friday, March 20 at 8 p.m.
    The party will kick off at Multiple Bars in San Francisco and is only to be Snuggie-wearers 21 years of age or older.

    The event is being pimped via Yelp, of course, and the exact location of the warm party will be announced on the site.

    "In response to the stunning public embrace of the warm and cuddly Snuggie," the organizers event wrote on their Yelp page. "(Our) team is hosting the first-ever Snuggie Pub Crawl in San Francisco, CA. Even though it's just a blanket with sleeves, we're sure that you'll enjoy a winter evening spent drinking with friends and the Snuggie."

    Um, okay. How warm blanket fun and drinks naturally flow together we are not sure, but whatever. We are not hear to judge, simply inform.

    Party goers must bring their own Snuggies, which can be had from your local drug store. Wear them and wear them proud because you are being judged on how cool you can look in your cotton comfort fun. There will be four categories that will be judged: Best Male, Best Female, Best Couple or group and the Sluttiest Snuggie. We are not sure what any of this actually means. Again, we are merely reporting, not judging.

    But there will be judging of the Snuggies by a panel of three to be announced at a later date. There is no word of what their qualifications to judge the Sluttiest Snuggie is but we are anxiously awaiting to hear.

    There will be unnamed prizes awarded to the winners and of course like any good contest there are rules and they are (quoted directly from the site):

        1. If you got a slanket, f*ck off. Your type is not welcomed here.
        2. Snuggies may be shortened, cut, or altered
        3. A snuggie must be used. No alternative fleece patterns.
        4. Snuggies have three colors and three colors only, red, blue and sage green.

    If you are planning to go to the event, be sure to stay up to date on their Yelp page and have fun.
