Duran Duran Appreciation Day 2019!

Does the date August 10th mean anything to you? If it doesn’t, it probably should! It is an international holiday celebrating Duran Duran. I have told non-fans about it and been disbelieved. They think I’m just making it up. Well, people, I’m here to tell you that it is a real, legit thing. Days of the Year website confirm the holiday. So, anyone have any plans? If not, maybe, you will want to join us! Yes, people, that’s right. Rhonda and I won’t allow this very significant day go by without doing something!

Well, if you have been around these parts for awhile, you know that it is pretty common for us to do a little online party. Let me explain the details for this year!

Like previous parties, there will be a YouTube playlist created that everyone at the party will watch! We have not come up with the list yet so if you have suggestions, let us know!

We will be starting at 1 pm Central Time on August 10th, which is 2 pm Eastern and 11 am Pacific. We will provide everyone with a list of what we will be watching when so that you can jump in at whatever time works for you.

Then, of course, we will be chatting, appreciating, teasing, reacting, etc. to everything we will be watching on Twitter that day. To that end, we will be using the hashtag #DDAD19. We would love to see it get trending!

Now, while all of that would awesome by itself, we wouldn’t be us if we didn’t add something special to the event! So, who has heard of a progressive dinner? The idea behind a progressive dinner is that people participating go to different people’s houses for each course of the meal. Well, we thought it might be fun to do a progressive drinking party. What’s that? Simple. Typically, a progressive drinking party is similar in that each place you go to, you have a different kind of drink. So, here’s what we thought. We would recommend various drinks to go with whatever we are watching. So, each video on the list would go with a different type of drink. Obviously, if you want to have that drink, go for it. If you want to have something else, that’s cool, too. We are just making recommendations. Like the video play list, we will let you know what drinks we recommend in a bit. Don’t worry, we will give plenty of time for you to hit the store to buy any and all necessary supplies.

So, for easy reference, Duran Duran Appreciation Party 2019 details:

  • August 10th starting at 1 pm Central
  • YouTube Watch List (to follow!)
  • Live Tweeting will happen with the hashtag #DDAD19
  • Drink recommendations to go with the watch list

Questions? Suggestions? Excitement? We cannot wait to celebrate the day and Duran Duran!

  1. Can you please post this to Colorado Duranies on FB? Not that people hear need an excuse to have a party 😉

  2. I was trying to find contact information, but I’m having trouble. I run a podcast about odd and unusual holidays. Would you be willing to do a short phone call about this? If so, please shoot an email to weirdxmas@gmail.com. (I’ll keep looking for other contact info as well.)

We (Amanda and Rhonda) appreciate discussion and differences of opinion. We respectfully ask that you fully read the blog before bitching us out. If you're only here to take us down a notch, note that we moderate replies (meaning we're not printing rude comments). Thanks a bunch!
