A good time was had by all! Beers and martinis were consumed, conversation was shared, Dollared stuck Yutsano with his drink bill (an accident? I report … you decide!) … we enjoyed some wonderful company and good food … MikeJ, thanks for suggesting we all get together, you picked a great spot, too.
One of the things I love about blogging and blogs in general is how it creates community. But when these virtual communities become “real” through meet-ups and get-togethers, it’s all the more powerful. Yes, there are real people on the other side of the nyms and comments.
So, thank you all for making Mr. Beale and me feel welcome!
Apparently Seattle’s rumored rainy/gray/depressing weather is just an evil lie to keep tourists away. It’s sunny and in the 80s here.
So, we look forward to meeting everyone! I don’t know what I’m wearing up top, but look for a middle-aged chick in white jeans and glasses. Also, Yutsano says he will be wearing a green Marvin The Martian T-shirt.
Sorry. It’s Saturday. 5 pm. Zig Zag.
Okay looks like we’ve settled on ZigZag at 5-ish. I know that’s really early for you young kids, but we will probably be very jet-lagged as our plane leaves at 6 am which is 4 am y’all’s time, which means getting up REALLY early. Also, we are old and need our beauty sleep … so we’re thinking cocktail hour, and then perhaps some food to soak up the booze after. Dollared’s recommendation already has my mouth watering. Sound good?
I still haven’t figured out the secret handshake. Apparently I am supposed to wear the Official Silly Hat to identify the gathering, but since I’m traveling a couple thousand miles and luggage space is tight, that doesn’t seem practical. Anyone else have any ideas? Also, don’t know how busy this place will be that early. Open to suggestions, however ….
Looking forward to meeting everyone!
Any Seattle-area Juicers interested in a meet-up this weekend? Saturday or Sunday? Discuss time/place options here ….
