The "end of the world soiree" featured hedonism, science, and a little bit of salvation.
Austin is a city that knows how to ring in the apocalypse in style. End of days parties were slated to take place around the city. At one, hosts plans to roast three pigs ("Mayan Style") while an artist decorates faces "with Mayan glyphs."
But I'm not sure any of the fetes can top the one pictured below. It's a multi-tent ode to decadence and delight. The "end of days soiree" is hosted by video game mogul, and it's been two years in the making. According to DNA:
the party will take guests through games, challenges and performances by hedonists, evangelists, UFO watchers and transcendentalists, all set up in camps along mythical ley lines, or earthly energy fields, which they say crisscross the Garriott de Cayeux property in Austin.
