My dear bananarchists,
It has been a long time since we’ve seen some of you. The winter has been harsh, and the hearts of some grew cold. Please know that during this time we have been working behind the scenes toward the bananarchist cause, wrestling against our own natures to prevent ourselves from slipping into the apathy we were afraid would plague us. Through this struggle, we visited other communities, raised awareness about bananarchist issues, and did time in several Latin American prisons. In the end, our hearts awoke into a new, more ardent vision for frozen banana freedom.
We will be opening again for the season on March 10.
Before that, on the 8th, we will be protesting against Cakeism, materialism, Cupcakeism, Ice Creamism, and commercialism, etc. downtown from 1-8 pm at 6th and San Jacinto. Come protest with us if you can and receive a coupon for a free frozen banana. Stay updated on Twitter in case we have to move.
Thank you for keeping the hope and fighting the fight.
As you know, we are currently closed for the season. However–
In some kind of miracle, possibly formed from the detritus of all Christmas miracles everywhere, then driven, sluggishly, by Christmas cheer’s toothless mother, through New Year’s Day and MLK Day and Mozart’s birthday, until finally emerging as a great ball of seasoned holiday potential, ready to burst forth and wreak its havoc upon unsuspecting passersby–we have decided to open up for a few hours on Valentine’s Day.
Have you thought yet about what to do for your beloved or beliked on this Day of all Days? Think no more! Bring them here!
Don’t have a beloved or beliked, or not one that approves of you using this terminology? How about someone on hard times, that could really use a kind banana? Take this opportunity to show love that might not be paid back.
We will have a LIMITED menu this day, due to the complicated nature of opening up for only a day in the off season. Featuring: RASPBERRY TRUFFLE BANANA!! Stay tuned for more menu details. We will definitely also have vegan chocolate.
Please dress up, as it is a fête costumée, which my friend Internet tells me means “fancy-dress party.” For you, this may mean your best cutoffs and a new scarf. For others, it may mean a suit. Or a space suit.
Hope to see you there.
Opening goes from 6-10 pm. RSVP on Facebook here!
We are now closed for the season. Hopefully you already knew this, as I hate to be the bearer of bad news. Please do not give up hope. Judging by this year’s bananalmanac, we will probably be returning in mid-March.
For a limited time, or possibly forever, drop off your own t-shirt and we’ll spray paint the Bananarchy logo on it for FREE!
Must arrange for pickup at a later time. Shirt must be light-colored because paint will be black. If you buy your shirt from a company, please make sure it has ethical production and marketing standards. You know what’s a great place to get a shirt? A thrift store!
We also accept dresses, jumpers, pajama pants, cutoffs, mumus, onesies, and skorts.
DID YOU KNOW that Bananarchy caters? Check out pics of our very own Bananarchy wedding – complete with banana suit, yellow bandannas, banana bouquets, and (of course) frozen bananas. Then email firstname.lastname@example.org for catering info and pricing.
Go here for the full wedding album.
We’ll be selling $1 halfsies all day Wednesday, May 15 from noon to 10 pm in celebration of our fourth bananaversary (or bananniversary, if you want to be British about it).
Thank you for your love and support. We would not be here without all of you.
Your co-laborers in the bananarchist cause
Bananarchists! As the dawn of a new season draws near, it’s time to once again stand up to The Man. Thanks to years of protests, research, and the help of ageless British spies, we have come to a disturbing conclusion: the event known as “SXSW” is, in fact, run by The Man.
It was a shock for us as well, but it’s the truth: SXSW is the mainstream, ever propagating the rat races of advertising, self-promotion, and commercialism. The enemy is spread far and wide, and he has much swag. We need your help.
This year, Bananarchy is infiltrating SXSW.
The Photo Contest Protest
Infiltrate The Man’s festival by photographing Bananarchists you see in the wild, or photographing yourself in the Bananarchist headgear we’ll be handing out around the Capital City. Share them with Bananarchy online (We’re “bananarchyatx” on Twitter, Facebook, & Instagram) throughout the week. Come to Bananarchy on South First, and your free frozen dessert will be waiting for you! Stay tuned to @bananarchyatx for news from the photo contest front.
You have your mission, Bananarchists. This message will self-destruct in 5 seconds.
As you know, SXSW is a special time in Austin. It’s a time to kick back and enjoy the culture, see lots of shows, get free swag from everyone ever, impress your friends with the hipness of your Instagrams, and RSVP for events you probably won’t show up for, right?
As though you needed any!
- EVERYONE gets a yellow Bananarchy headband and spoon
- 2 hour shift = free food
- 4 hour shift = free food AND coupon for free Bananarchy banana
- 6 hour shift = free food AND coupon for free Bananarchy banana AND free Bananarchy t-shirt
RSVPing accurately would be extremely helpful. You can RSVP on Facebook here.
This will coincidentally take place on the first day of our 2013 season, March 11.
WHEN: MONDAY, MARCH 11 from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m.
WHERE: 6th Street and San Jacinto, unless The Man makes us move. Keep updated on our twitter (@bananarchyatx).
We’ll be returning from our winter hibernation on Monday, March 11, at the same location (603 W. Live Oak). Please be there not only with bells on, but preferably also with whistles and castanets and possibly a gutbucket or two.
