Holiday celebrations have become a hodgepodge of faiths, thanks to Johnny-Come-Latelies like Kwanzaa, and Hanukkah. Take this creed conflation to its logical extreme at Saturday's Go Game Holiday Party.
Seeking to incorporate everything from Christmas to Groundhog Day, the GGHP's a boozy Santa Monica scavenger hunt combined with a Decathlon of Merriment (a biathlon was proposed, but there's nothing merry about gun violence). Gather or join a team, and web-phone, digital camera, and game clues in hand, you'll be turned loose on a spree of object-gathering and holiday-themed competition, e.g., hunting eggs w/ a "sexy Easter Bunny", bobbing for apples, and "jello thumb wrestling" (Valentine's? Cinqo de Cosby?). Everything culminates in a keg-filled Oktoberfest, where Game winners'll be announced, and prom-style crowns handed to the Mother of the Year and the...Martin Luther King.
In the spirit of sacrifice, at some point during the day each team must exchange a White Elephant gift with another -- because while not all religions call it "Yankee Swap", they can all agree that trading a 3-pack of tube-socks for a Sharper Image breathalyzer is divine.
