Pillow Fight Club

Posted by Arcane Gazebo at February 15, 2006 11:58 PM

I heard about this beforehand from three separate sources, and really wanted to go, but unfortunately had a group meeting.

Hundreds attend mass pillow fight

Roughly 1,000 people drawn by internet postings and word-of-mouth converged near San Francisco's Ferry Building on Tuesday night for a half-hour pillow fight.

The underground event erupted at 6 p.m. in the center of Justin Herman Plaza with a mass rush of shrieking, laughing combatants - many of whom arrived with pillows concealed in shopping bags, backpacks and the like.

Within minutes, pillows were arcing, feathers were flying, and by the time the Ferry Building's clock tower clanged the half-hour, the plaza and hundreds of people were covered in white down that gave the scene a wintry lustre.

This is the sort of thing that makes me love San Francisco.

"There is no pillow fight club!"

I would have gone to that... it's probably a great way to make friends. :)

Honestly, thought things like that are really cool, I don't think it makes up for the vast quantity of self-righteous, self-interested people who live in SF and pretty much exclusively make up the ruling class of SF. And driving and parking in that city is a nightmare. Bleah, bleah, BLEAH.

I hate San Francisco. Of course, pillowfights could be scheduled around San Jose, too...

Don't suppose there were girls in PJs?
