The following is among the most ambitious party ideas you will ever read. It requires copious amounts of alcohol (in keg form), stellar cross-venue coordination, and a sense of adventure amongst the party attendants. I was told this idea by a friend, although it is currently just that, an idea. It’s the kind of party you might see in one of those teen movies and think “that shit never happens on real college campuses,” which should only make you try to actually make it happen. I share this idea in hopes that some enterprising partiers somewhere out there might put the idea into action (and if so, please document the experience. The world must know).
Without further ado….the running of the bulls party.
At least two different locations for parties on the same night
A shit ton of people (who are adventurous)
Kegs for each location (amount depends on amount of people)
The concept of the running of the bulls begins with the throwing of a party at location A. Get a reasonable amount of kegs for the anticipated crowd. From there, just have a party as per usual. Let things proceed naturally, until the kegs run dry that is. This is when the magic happens, because the party at location A is finished.
Everyone must get out of the house and make their way to location B as soon as possible. Ideally, this includes running (the locations are close to each other – obviously), but as long as the crowd is large enough some can choose to walk. Imagine some random person walking down the street when all of a sudden a bunch of people are running in a mob towards them. Pure hilarity.
The routine repeats itself for as many locations as you have. Once all the kegs are gone you could even make a final run to the bars, which should again cause some major confusion in all those not participating.
Of course, the running of the bulls in Pamplona would be nothing without the bulls right? Correct, that’s why this kind of thing would work perfectly around Halloween, when someone could dress as a bull and act as a shepherd for the big group of people running between locations. Then it truly would be a running of the bulls.
Unlikely to happen? Yes. Impossible? No. Get on it people, I know somewhere this can go down. Feel free to invite me,too. I wouldn’t mind covering such a historical event in college partying.
