A Night of Gluttony

@ VOL 12 ON DEC 13, 2012

Consultant Alan Feirer shares one of his favorite personal traditions, the annual night of gluttony, a night of eating and drinking he embarks on every year with one of his closest friends. Over the course of the night, the pair both eat and drink more than an entire day’s worth of calories, in a tradition which Alan uses to stay in touch with his carefree, irreverent side.
