NYC Brides of March 2013
Meets at Long Island Bagel Cafe (125 Fulton St., Manhattan)
The Brides of March started as an annual Cacophony Society event in San Francisco in March 1999. It was intended as a pun on the term Ides of March and a parody of weddings in western culture. The event, which began in 1999, is part pub crawl and part street theater, while wearing a thrift store wedding dress. Brides may be of any (!) gender, but the wearing of traditional white wedding dresses, or something resembling them, is the point of the event. In recent years there have been a greater number of gothic brides who wear black, alien brides and other variations on the theme. Like its Cacophony Society counterpart “Santarchy”, the tradition has spread worldwide and now includes gatherings in Austin, Reno, Portland, Los Angeles, Seattle, London, and Japan, among others.
Join us as we hit NYC for a day of fun.
NOTE: This will NOT be a bar crawl! While we may stop into a bar or two in the late afternoon, the fun will be in interacting with people. Make sure you are in comfortable shoes and prepared for walking and being outside.
