Festivus. A holiday for the rest of us. That’s how we played up the Dec. 23 “Seinfeld” tradition: With an unadorned “Festivus pole,” “Airing of Grievances” for the year, “Feats of Strength” (a Liar’s Dice battle) and nine-beast stew (aka cioppino). My friend Mia hosts the fun and, oh, interesting evening every year, and I haven’t missed a Festivus since I first experienced it. It’s definitely one of my favorite Christmas traditions.
Locals wines and treats before the beast feast.
I love Mia’s collections.
Lots and lots of seafood.
The final product.
The best cake of my life.
This is the Festivus Cup. Whoever wins Liar’s Dice must display this beauty in a place of importance for an entire year.
And here it is, the Festivus pole.
