Hat Flash Mob on Sunday the 15th in Union Square! We want to fill the square with people wearing hats, looking nice, and doing normal things, so we can take photos and prove that it’s possible to go back and embrace some old traditions! We are trying to bring the hat back and make life what it used to be prior to 1960: Nobody left the house without wearing a hat. We are only asking for fifteen minutes of your time from 12:00 until 12:15 in the afternoon, come to Union Square, have a cuppa coffee, read the paper, chat with someone, wear any old hat you like! We will be bringing a cart of hats for people to throw on if you don’t have one and all you have is a baseball cap. *cough*

Let’s Bring the Hat Back! Please come!

P.S. If it’s raining it’s automatically canceled!

Fedora Loungers with vintage hats meet at the column/statue in the
center of Union Square? Not certain I can make it, but I'll do my best.

And BTW, if someone is curious to see in person a hat I have posted here, drop
me a PM and I will see if I can wear it to the event.

Though we know hats are made for the rain, but we know that if it rains we'll have half the turn out, and the pictures won't come out very well. If it rains we'll do it again!

I came up with this idea after this man, who allegedly doesn't even like hats, came into Paul's with a beautiful old black and white photo of the Midwinter's Fair in Golden Gate Park in 1893, and everyone was wearing a hat. Flash mobs are very popular in SF, and it would be easy to stir up some talk if everyone in Union Square was wearing a hat. Plus a lot of fun and good photos!

Any pilgrims are welcome to crash on my couch.

Can't make it but I do hope you end up with a Pilgrim - wouldn't it be cool if he/she was wearing a Pilgrim :D - on your couch, KeyGrip!
