Chances are you aren’t hanging out in any sewers, but that doesn’t mean you can’t hang out at your favorite pizza place while wearing your Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles hoodie. Grab three of your friends, four hoodies, and head to your local pizza parlor to devour a pizza (or two) slice by slice.
If you’re headed to the go kart track for an afternoon of friendly competition, don’t forget your Nintendo hoodie.

Planning to build something? Grab your Creeper hoodie and pretend like you are playing Minecraft in real life.
