Yes, friends, despite the outcry from church officials, government flacks, concerned citizens everywhere, and pleas from MADD, SADD, GLAD and WEBADD*, we’ve decided to continue the tradition of the Darwinfish Fry, in which various Pittsburgh bloggers get together for a night of good food, good drink and rapid-fire communication.
(OK, that last part is mostly Cassie. But then I can’t laugh… not after that last 4-line sentence.)
I will be in Pittsburgh over Memorial Day weekend for a wedding, so never being one to pass up an opportunity to rub elbows and nosh with my blogging and tweeting compadres, I am taking advantage of the Monday holiday to co-host the Darwinfish Fry Part 2.
I say “co-host” because our good friends, the Carpetbaggers, have stepped up and offered their former speakeasy as the home base from which to pitch our fits of whimsy. As such, I designate the combined efforts of this Darwinfish2 and Carpetbaggery event to be called, The Bag’O Fish BBQ.
If you will be or can be in the Pittsburgh area over Memorial Day and you are reading this, consider yourself invited.
This will be a “pot luck” event. The Carpetbaggers will provide a variety of grilled meats (burgers, brats, breasts…) and some beer. We would like YOU to bring your favorite “pass-around” dish and whatever else you would like to drink.
You may also bring members of your family if you wish, although you’re perfectly welcome to leave them at home and escape to the wilds of Lawrenceville for a “ME-Day.” (“Me” meaning “you”, not me.)
We will start around 3:00 and run until you feel like leaving, or Mrs. Carpetbagger kicks everyone out; whichever comes first. Remember, it is a “school day” on Tuesday.
If you would like to come, here’s what I need from you. Click here to go directly to the page I set up for this event. (or click the link at the top of the page.) In the comments there, please list:
* Who is coming?
* What you are bringing? (Please consult the comments below before deciding, so we don’t end up with 15 bowls of coleslaw.)
* What is the airspeed velocity of an un-laden swallow?
(Just kidding about the last one.)
Then email me directly at Tncave40 at hotmail dot com and I will email you the address. (I’m trying to avoid listing the precise location of Carpetbagger’s lair on the world-wide internet web.) But for reference, here is a high-level map to show you the general area we’re talking about, so you can properly gauge the distance.
I’m really looking forward to seeing you all, either again of for the first time. Our last one was so much fun, I’ve been dying to do it again.
* There isn’t really a WEBADD, but there ought to be.
