Like most odd, obscure, and semi-made-up holidays, the origins and reasoning behind the existence of this day of observance is vague. The official website for Intergalactic Tutu Day states:
On Earth, Intergalactic Tutu Day is celebrated on February 2nd of each solar year. While the observation of Intergalactic Tutu Day varies greatly from civilization to civilization, the most common practice is for beings to simply wear tutus.
Seems simple enough, no? While last year's event was held at Memory Lanes, this year's tutu-minded folks will be celebrating the holiday at the Wxyz bar inside of Aloft Hotel (900 Washington Ave. S.) in downtown Minneapolis. From 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. guests will be able to play shuffleboard, board games, and pool throughout the night while enjoying happy hour specials from 10 p.m. to midnight. Don't have a tutu? Event organizers will have a few extras to loan out.
You can RSVP to the party by checking in with the event's Facebook page or get more resources at Intergalactic Tutu Day's official site, intergalactictutuday.org.
