A wig factory? A party in a teepee? Another EDM festival? Weird hippie pants?
No. It’s not another EDM festival full of 14 year olds and flowers nor is it a wig party. Damn it. Wait, there is a fantastic idea. A Wig festival? Holy shit. Stay tuned for the first ever Wig Festival brought to you by A Social Mess this summer. My God, that’s genius. I digress….
Wigwam Fest is the brainchild of our very own JLL. She got sick a few years back and damn near tried every form of medicine / health activity from China to Mars. She got well and now is bringing her world of experience to you with the help of every specialist in the state of Georgia. It is a smorgasbord of all things healthy (note: it took me 8 minutes to figure out how to spell that word).
You know all those bizarre things your healthy friends do that are confusing as nuts? THEY WILL BE EXPLAINED / TAUGHT / DEMONSTRATED / ENCOURAGED at this event. Come out and learn what Kale is and how to pronounce Quinoa. Figure out the secrets to meditation and Super Jenny’s soup. Be inspired by inspiring people doing inspiring things to inspire your life. The word “inspire” actually comes from the latin “In Spire” which translates to “get your shit together”. I think.
Or are you sick of going to the Ivy every Sunday to see the same blowhards drink shitty champagne mimosas all afternoon then battling waves of migraine hangovers on Monday at the office?
I say try something new and refreshing. Try WIGWAM. What a fun word to say. WIGWAM. Kinda makes me want to dance (see hip hop fit class at WIGWAM). WIGWAM. Name your next pet cat WIGWAM. WIGWAM the cat. Hey WIGWAM, want a biscuit? Do cats eat biscuits? Gluten free biscuits?
I think ol girl has 8000 different kinds of yoga classes lined up as well as the best chefs / nutrition folks in Atlanta ready to explain how to eat things that don’t make you fat and lazy. You will walk away with a world of information about how to better your life, body and mind. If not, I will give you your money back and buy you a used scooter, jug of beet juice with fish oil supplements and a Shake Weight.
There are four Sundays you can choose from and many different classes / talks / forums you can pick each day. Or just come and sit around. There are no rules. Except for me not wearing a wig.
