Holiday Jeer

Holiday traditions? Whatever. Instead, get a little bizzaro at Cruisin’ 7th’s Festivus Celebration, a drag show and party honoring the holiday “for the rest of us” -- you know, people who don’t really care about religion or picking up gifts for folks they aren’t really friends with.

In true Festivus spirit, the party includes traditions such as the Airing of Grievances, where you sound off about how people have disappointed you, and the Feats of Strength, an intense wrestling match. Sounds like a lot more fun than sucking on a candy cane, huh?

The night’s not just about having a great irreverent time. It also serves as a fundraiser for Aunt Rita’s Foundation, which benefits Phoenix-area AIDS service organizations.
