Conceived by Brewvana’s J. Wilson and the tiny design empire at 818 to promote the #DrinkingPants hashtag, the Drinking Pants Pageant is a beer lovers’ fashion show that takes place each year during Des Moines Beer Week.
Who: People with crazy pants (could be you*!)
What: The Most Fun You’ll Have w/ Your Pants On
Where: Vaudeville Mews, Des Moines, Iowa, USA, Earth
When: June 21, 2018 (doors @ 6pm, show at 7pm)
Why: If everybody’s wearing goofy pants, nobody’s wearing goofy pants. It’s a great way to make friends! Also: prizes!
How Much: $5 at the door ain’t no thang! (proceeds benefit Des Moines Beer Week)
2017 Details: For our musical pleasure, Karen Meat opened the night, then we hit the catwalk with three categories of #DrinkingPants pageantry (men, women, and groups [2-4 people/ team]) judged by local celebrities.
(Deets on the 2018 Pageant coming soon!)
There’s more?!?! Yep, the Drinking Pants Hall of Fame induction!
Big thanks to our 2017 judges:
What are #DrinkingPants? Hit up the vintage clothing shop or your grandmother’s closet for fancy threads and join us for the most fun you’ll have with your pants on–you don’t want to miss it!
