Spring Break From Capitalism

May 1, 2017 | 7:00 pm8:00 pm

| Free

A Reception for the Common Good

Join us after the International Worker’s Day Rally & March for a mini Spring Break From Capitalism at our all-inclusive resort at the Bus Stop Theatre. Free from pesky bosses micromanaging your workflow and making inappropriate remarks, a micro-vacation with us will offer you time for a little much needed R&R&R&R (rest and relaxation and resistance and revolution).

Your massive student debts and monthly car payments will disappear (from view at least), giving you ample opportunity to work on your tan. And after a few glorious minutes of digging your toes into the sand of our smooth sandy beach, your crushing social anxiety will noticeably subside. Are the fears of rising rental costs and the impending climate crises getting the better of you? It might be time for you to swim over to our beach-side bar and try one of our non-alcoholic Daiquiris – “Sunny Vitamin D” for a long winter complete with real Vitamin D, or “¡Ya Basta!” our revolutionary’s yerba matté slushie. No exploitative capitalist enterprises or colonial celebrations here, we offer a break from your day-to-day oppressive monolithic super-structures. You can forget all about the cold dark shadow of misogynist authoritarianism that’s cast clear across the globe inciting fear and hate and violence when you and your friends relax in one of our hammocks under our daylight-spectrum simulating lights.

Oh, and did we mention we’ll have free ice cream? Yes, special Bread & Roses ice cream cones offered by Dee Dee’s Ice Cream. Yum!

Developed by Zachary Gough and presented in partnership with Dee Dee’s Ice Cream
