Every once in awhile, the stars align and ardent supporters of the Muppets find themselves gathered in one place discussing the Muppets and acting like complete weirdos (as everyone would expect). These rare, interstellar events have become known in fan circles by many names: Muppet Meet-Ups, Knitting Circles, Doll Wiggling Conventions, and, most recently, "The Muppet Vault" Fan Fest hosted by ToughPigs and The MuppetCast.
That's right, our good friends the burly swine and the casting pod are hosting their first ever Muppet fan gathering at The Knitting Factory in Brooklyn, New York on Sunday, July 25 at 2:00 pm. The main event includes screenings of loads of rare Muppet clips and sketches that are extremely difficult to find (hence the "rare" in the sentence). Tickets cost a mere $5 and there will be food, games, sing-alongs, prizes, trivia, frogs, and dogs, and chickens, and things.
Unfortunately, I live nowhere near NYC, so I won't be able to attend (probably for the best... having that many Muppet fan-site owners in one place wouldn't be good for anyone), but if you or a Muppet fan you know is near Brooklyn, New York on July 25th, there will be nothing better for you to do than to visit Joe, Ryan, and Steve at "The Muppet Vault"!
