Where to celebrate the end of the world



Say good bye to earth. Just kidding, say hello to parties and happy hours.
  • Say good bye to earth. Just kidding, say hello to parties and happy hours.
There are two kinds of people in this world: Idiots that believe that the world will end on Friday when the Mayan calendar supposedly runs out, and somewhat intelligent people who are confident the world will not end, but will enjoy a theme party with cheap drinks. And, because I like to Pitch readers are fairly rational human beings, I assume you're all in the latter category, rather than, say, building a massive boat that will somehow survive the entire world ending.

Presumably because the Mayans knew people in 2012 like to party, they conveniently scheduled the apocalypse on a Friday, making it the perfect convergence of doomsday myths and J├Ąger bombs. After the jump, peruse some bar specials, parties and other events marking the non-end of the world.
