Parties for the end of the world

Kansas City Fox 4's weatherman Mike Thompson assures me that there will be a Saturday — look, his forecast even goes until Christmas! After hearing about this Mayan apocalypse nonsense for so long now, it's finally time. Will we pass drunkenly through a rousing celebration of life? Or will us skeptics be eating crow when Planet X/Nibiru comes crashing down to Earth or whatever doomsday scenario is offered up? Either way, there are many venues across the town planning End of the World parties, a unique, but tongue-in-cheek, celebration of this once in a lifetime nonevent.
