Q: What is The Chanukah Party?
Now in it’s third year, The Chanukah Party is an annual multi-media community celebration featuring live standup comedy, musical performances, a dance party, and much delicious food. This year’s Chanukah Party is at Washington Hall on Sunday, December 29th, 2019, at 6:15pm.
Q: Why a Chanukah Party?
A: Why not? No one thinks twice when you say you’re throwing a Christmas Party. I (Blake) just happen to be a Jew.
Q: Oh, so this is like a religious thing?
A: Nope. This party is completely secular; all are welcome. It’s really just an excuse to throw a great party, but if you need to know, I’ll tell you I agree with comedian and semi-famous Jew Marc Maron in that I identify as “culturally Jewish”–I love a big meal with family and friends. I love great entertainment and comedy (really these things could describe any culture).
Q: Who are ‘Blammer & Wong’?
A: ‘Blammer’ is me, Blake Madden, and ‘Wong’ is my friend and associate Mike Wong. We throw a once-a-month dinner party in Seattle at revolving locations. The Chanukah Party will be like one of our dinner parties, but on steroids. Read more about the Blammer & Wong history here.
Q: So what can I expect from the evening?
Dinner will be available buffet style as doors open. Feast upon our world famous Bagel Bar, down a few bowls of Vegan Matzo Ball Soup, enjoy some classic fried rice courtesy of Mike Wong. After a welcome from Adra Boo, Comedian Isaac Novak will get the evening going with a set of standup. Then King Youngblood (formerly Gypsy Temple) performs a rare ‘unplugged’ set. Cinematic noir-pop band Hotels closes the live music portion of the evening as they celebrate the release of new music. Deep partiers can burn off the fried rice and soup by dancing to the tag-team sounds of DJ Silk Safari and DJ Ruben Mendez until close.
Q: Wow. Sounds Great. Where can I get tickets?
Q: Anything else we should know?
A: Leave any hate, bigotry, and othering at home; love is required for entry. This event is by and for people of different cultures, colors, and faiths. Nobody leaves till all the bread gets broken, dig?
