Looking for something different this Valentine’s day. Oh sure, you could buy some flowers and chocolate, and go to dinner and a movie. In fact, now that I think about it, that sounds romantic. If you want your Valentine’s day to end the way we all know you want it to end, you should probably just do that. Go, make a reservation.
Okay, now that all the boring people are busy making reservations at Cheesecake Factory, I’m going to let you in on the secret. At 6pm in the Embarcadero in San Francisco, there is going to be a massive pillow fight. In years past, over 1,000 people have shown up to wail on complete strangers with pillows. Before long, once some feathered pillows burst, cover the area with a feathery snow (feather angels anyone?) I can only describe the pillow fight as the biggest mosh pit you’ve ever seen, only instead of bony punk kids, you’re kitting hit by soft pillows.
Please, have some pillow fight etiquette. Nothing inside your pillow but pillow, and if you have a stuffed animal with beaded eyes- know those beaded eyes hurt when they hit someone in the head (I know from experience). Whatever happens this Valentine’s day, if you take your date to the Great SF pillow fight, you know their head will hit your pillow at some point.
