(Half) Naked and Famous



Better late than never… Gents, It’s almost time to celebrate the 7th Anniversary of the birth of the International Flapjack Society.

From north to south, from east to west, from overseas we’ll (symbolically) come and gather in Santa Barbara the weekend of Friday December 16th, Saturday December 17th and Sunday December 18th.  Santa Barbara, tremble at our warning… we’ll return next month.

Friday Dec 16th

The Naked And Famous will be performing at Soho.  Early info suggests the show will begin at 9pm with TNAF to take the stage after an opening band or two.  Get your tickets at www.clubmercy.com

Now that we have set this weekend set in stone, let’s get on the ticket situation right away.  Head to the website and get yours so you’re not the guy without a ticket bugging me at the last minute to use my radio powers to “hook up a brah, brah.”  Soho is a very small venue and some TNAF videos on YouTube have upwards of 10 million views.  (Translation: This show will SELL OUT!  So get on it ASAP).

Saturday December 17th


Turnpike IHOP.  Where it all began.  It is a story of humble beginnings.  What most people use to wipe maple syrup from their mouths served as the initial canvas for the world’s strongest group of gentlemen.  Seven years later, we return to pay homage and grossly over-tip those who hosted our inception.

Leave it to me to make sure the banquet room will be reserved and the Adolphi: iced.

Use this next month to figure out if there is any current/future business you would like to discuss/$50 t-shirts you’d like to front the money for.

Saturday night.  Pack your B-12.

Sunday December 18th

I’m pretty sure this has been eluding us for many Anniversaries, but perhaps this is the year we suck it up on IFS Sunday and finally hit up Cold Springs Tavern for one of their famous tri-tip sammies.  With our track record, I’m not too optimistic that this will go down, but with some Saturday night B-12 in our system, maybe this is our year.   Maybe Theo Epstein will drive us there and pick up Albert Pujols on the way… Yeah, this is totally our year.

There’s the basics.  First thing’s first… get on those tickets asap… like now.

Use the comment section or email chain if you have other things you’d like to discuss (saturday suits?, dinner? is democracy/our Rabbi dead? etc)

Out like Paterno,

    Aww jesus! How did this get out!?!? Sure do wish I had some Bernie pre-op photos right about now…. you know, when he was still a reptile (only kidding Baggs but haha I’m reary raughing so hard right now). Anywho, this itinerary sounds like a good jam-jam. Can’t wait to make us on great hip party!

    “Totally spaced on the tix. hook up a brah, brah.” That doesn’t sound like something a member of IFS would say.
