I’ll regret this, you say? Watch me.
March Manness is an important time in a creative person’s life. Over the past six years, it’s been a rite of passage at ThomasARTS for creative and account services alike. Both genders. And what defines this time-honored tradition is the same thing that separates it from the rest of the year: an opportunity for us to overdo it.
It all started in an era of baby showers and bridal parties. At the time, manliness was disappearing in a sea of frilly food and color coordination. We wanted to get back to the roots of what it means to be a man. To once again enjoy the camaraderie of competition, all while wrapping several grilled brats in a kinsman’s embrace.
Today, this non-chauvinistic and non-exclusive event is a celebration of everything great in life. Competitors fill out a March Madness bracket, for which we hold a drawing for prizes. They also compete in manly contests of strength and daring. And everyone who participates gets a March Manness T-shirt.
All in all, it’s arguably the best day of the year at ThomasARTS. If you’re anywhere near our neighborhood, we hope you’ll join us.
