City There Will be Feathers

From the Internet:
DATE: Saturday March 29th RAIN OR SHINE. Don’t be a wimp ;-) TIME: 3:15pm PLACE: Pike Place Market, corner of Pike and Pine. In the street, in front of the place that throws the fish.
A car will be blocking traffic so that we can safely fight in the street. Because we’ll be stopping traffic the fight will be pretty short. (I’ve choreographed this so no one will get stuck behind the fight. Don’t worry.)
THE WAY IT WORKS-
- TELL EVERYONE ABOUT THE FIGHT. Bring as many people as you possibly can. A big fight is a GREAT fight!
- CONCEAL YOUR PILLOW! Hide it in a backpack, a shopping bag, under your coat, etc. DO NOT go to the fight location and hang out with a pillow in your hand. Look busy: Pretend to shop, chat on the phone or with a friend, whatever, just don’t be obvious. (If you see someone hanging out, with pillow in hand, discreetly suggest that they look busy and try to hide the pillow)
- LISTEN FOR THE WHISTLE. I’ll have to create a diversion in the street to allow the car to stop for us and give the cars that were in front of it time to move down the street to give us enough room to have the fight. Don’t just start fighting because you see me in the street.
- After 3 minutes, I’ll blow the whistle again to stop the fight. STOP FIGHTING IMMEDIATELY AND WALK AWAY. Just like nothing ever happened ;-)
**AFTERMATH GATHERING at The Whiskey Bar (just in time for happy hour!) 2000 Second Ave. Bring cash if you want to drink, because they don’t accept credit cards.
Bring Friends, Tell people
Conceal Your Pillow
Don’t Hit Anyone Without a Pillow (Very important!!! )
Watch Out for Cameras
—If you come with a group, it’s helpful to spread out before the fight and come running from different directions—
Many of you in the comments suggested that you wish you could tell off the pillow-fighters after the last time, when a cleanup was necessary due to all the feathers. Now’s your chance.
