Well now. Mark your calendars for this one. I am giving you ample notice. Tomorrow is “Hug a Newsman Day”.
A thorough search…5 minute Google…revealed the following:
Hug a Newsman Day gives you the opportunity to give a great, big hug to your local news person. C’mon, admit it. You’ve watched your cute newsman day in and day out. You’ve always told your self if you ever see him, you would give him a great, big hug. Well, today is your opportunity. Any questions on how to celebrate this day? Important note: Today is also a day to hug a news “woman”. They wouldn’t want to be left out of this very special day.
So to observe this rather obscure holiday The Grand Central Oyster Bar, In New York City will be paying tribute to the news media with a [sic] hors d’eorves and cocktail reception on Friday night, April 4, 2008 from 6:00 to7:30 PM.
Oyster Bar General Manager Mike Garvey and Executive Chef Sandy Ingber and Cirillo World are inviting everyone. John Cirillo emphasizes that they’re going to have a few professional “huggers” (both male and female) to engage in a group hug. The celebration includes print and broadcast media. Now what could be better.
