International Hat Day is Saturday, January 21stI have photos to share, but they're all tiff files and blogger ain't down with that. bastards.
q: What is International Hat Day?
a: A day set aside for all to go drinking while wearing a silly hat.
q: What are the rules?
a: You have to wear a hat that isn't consider part of the "norm" (so no baseball caps and nothing
from The Gap)
q: What happens on Hat Day?
a: First we all meet up at Madhatter (about 7) for drinks and the annual showing off of the hats. Then it's over to Millie & Al's (around 8) for more drinking and the switching of the hats.
q: "Switching of the hats?"
a: People trade their hats around trying to wear as many different hats as possible. BUT
you are not allowed to trade with non-Hat Day participants (i.e. the hot guy/girl who doesn't have a hat but is batting their eyes at you begging to wear your über-cool hat) or to leave the bar with a hat that doesn't belong to you. If you do, and I get a photo of you, I will post it here and send it to my friends so we can hate on you.
q: You sound bitter.
a: Some whore walked off with my Viking helmet (complete with braids) a few years ago (I even had my name and number in it. Fucking whore.). Yeah, I'm still bitter about it.
q: Who the hell thought of this?!?
a: Why are you asking questions when you should be out buying a hat?!best locations to get a hat: hats in the belfry in georgetown and that random costume/hat store near the clarendon metro.
