The problem is we’re never awake or in any shape to drive a big truck at 2:30pm on January 1. Typically on a New Years day we’ve just gone to bed around noon, and the sauna is still hot and probably in use by a few leftover revelers. We actually did have it parked by the ocean one year, 2002 I believe, and I was standing in the ocean on New Years Day (at like 230am, not pm), but we never make it out to that polar bear swim.
This year is no exception. And like all new year’s days, we will be celebrating with a sweat. It’s also a sunday, which we also traditionally celebrate with a sweat. It’s also the Saunasessions 11th anniversary, which we will celebrate with a sweat. That’s three celebrations and three sweats, all in one evening.
We’ll be at our current location, the Hammock Residency, 1923 Gravely st, alley entrance. The box will be hot from 6pm-12. I have heard that Orkestar Slivovica is also having a super jam party next door, so since we’re all down for a good time this should be a new years day to (try to) remember. And if you can’t make the swim at least get in a good polar bear shower.
I hope you can wake up, come down and join us.
