Matt Catapano, a New York-based Snuggie enthusiast who runs SnuggieFest.com, says theres a major rift in the Snuggie community due to corrupt Chicago Snuggie fans.
Heres the situation: Chi-Town Snuggie lovers have been organizing Snuggie Pub Crawls and charging people $20 to participate, and NYC Snuggie fans think the fee is just a greedy scheme to make a quick buck.
Catapano explains, This reeks of a plan formulated by business school kids. You cant charge people to hang out in their Snuggies! It goes against everything Snuggiedom stands for.
To combat Chicagos pricey Snuggie events, Catapano is hosting a free Snuggie bar hop April 11 in NYC to benefit conquerleukemia.net.
He expects supporters to come out in bedazzled and tailored Snuggies, and doesnt anticipate much sabotage from their Chicago rivals, like a Snuggie sleeve-cutting attack.
He says, They wont risk it, but were ready if they do. They cant mess with us!
