The Glass Coffin presents: Lupercalia Evening Market
February 15, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Lupercalia was an ancient pagan festival held each year in Rome on February 15. Although Valentine’s Day shares its name with a martyred Christian saint, some historians believe the holiday is actually an offshoot of Lupercalia. Unlike Valentine’s Day, however, Lupercalia was a bloody, violent and sexually-charged celebration awash with animal sacrifice, random matchmaking and coupling in the hopes of warding off evil spirits and infertility.
Lupercalia Evening Market
Sat February 15th from 4p – 9p
Complimentary Libations 🍷🍻 21+
A little ‘Flogging’ perhaps?
Costumes are always encouraged. 🐺
We can’t celebrate if there’s no matchmaking going on. So we’re having some Gothic Speed Dating starting at 6p. Get here early to sign up and hopefully meet your Undead Soulless Mate!
After the speed dating we’re having a little more fun as participants gather round for a game of Seven Minutes in a Coffin.
As Aunt Z says “Lupercalia is a symphony of sensuality and pleasure.”
