March 12 was International Fanny Pack Day, and local fanny pack enthusiasts marked the day by gathering at Liquid to celebrate and help fight hunger. The cover charge for the event was two cans of food, in order to help fill the shelves at the Idaho Foodbank.
Not only did International Fanny Pack Day give these dedicated pack wielders an excuse to bring out their favorite '80s accessory, it also provided them justification for doing so. When a friend asked, “Are you really gonna wear that to the bar?” the packers could say, “Yeah, why wouldn’t I? It’s for the Idaho Foodbank.”
