Emperor Norton’s 199th Birthday Party is Tonight!
You probably know that I’m a big fan of Emperor Norton by now. He was SF’s original eccentric weirdo and was much loved by the City’s residents. I wrote about my love for him and for Emperor Norton’s Boozeland right here.
Well it appears that it’s Emperor Norton’s 199th birthday and The Emperor’s Bridge Campaign is throwing him a party.
You can RSVP to the FB event right here. All the details are below:
At The Emperor’s Bridge Campaign, we always do our research. And our research makes us 99.9% certain that Joshua Abraham Norton — the future Emperor Norton — was born on 4 February 1818.
We’ve made it our custom to celebrate the Emperor’s birthday every year with a party and cake.
This year, Emperor Norton turns 199 — so, with apologies to Prince…
Please join your fellow citizens of the Empire to…
