The Side Quest says
Did you know that Monday, May 25th is Geek Pride Day, Towel Day AND The Glorious 25th of May?! Come celebrate the anniversary of 1977 release of Star Wars, Towel Day for fans of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, and the Glorious 25th of May for fans of Terry Pratchett's Discworld, at Ohio's geekiest bar The Side Quest!

TOWEL DAY: A towel, it says, is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have. Partly it has great practical value. You can wrap it around you for warmth as you bound across the cold moons of Jaglan Beta; you can lie on it on the brilliant marble-sanded beaches of Santraginus V, inhaling the heady sea vapours; you can sleep under it beneath the stars which shine so redly on the desert world of Kakrafoon; use it to sail a miniraft down the slow heavy River Moth; wet it for use in hand-to-hand-combat; wrap it round your head to ward off noxious fumes or avoid the gaze of the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal (such a mind-bogglingly stupid animal, it assumes that if you can't see it, it can't see you); you can wave your towel in emergencies as a distress signal, and of course dry yourself off with it if it still seems to be clean enough. - Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

The Glorious 25th of May: Truth, Justice, Freedom, Reasonably Priced Love, and a Hard-Boiled Egg! -The Night Watch by Sir Terry Pratchett
