May BlogMeet: FIRST ANNIVERSARY

Yes, it's true: we have been at the BlogMeet biz for nearly a year. Our First Annual is this month!

Present plans are a bit up in the air, it being 500-Mile-Race* month and all. The Brew Pub may be full up. On the other hand, the Speedway itself tends to draw folk to it as long as the gates are open.

UPDATE: In order to dodge the race and other festivities, let's have the BlogMeet 17 May. This is the same weekend as the NRA convention but perhaps we can get Breda or another of the Midwestern attendees to give us a quick telephone report!

On the other other hand...Locally Grown Gardens has pulled pork barbecue, salmon, asparagus, coleslaw, home made bread, pies, ice cream and I dunno what all else, and that's even before we get 'round to the produce that is their mainstay; they have a few tables and there's a pocket park a short walk up the Monon Trail. We could all hang out, talk and enjoy first-rate eats from a rilly rilly kewl, unpretentious small biz run by a top chef! Whattaya think?

Poster to follow.

Would we get to be threatened with a giant turtle?

Roberta X said...

We'd have to walk farther than that; the turtle-threatener is farther up the trail -- and, come to think of it, there's a first-rate Mediterranean restaurant right next to it. Wonder if the assembled group would enjoy a stroll up to there for afters?

The cole slaw was un-frickin'-believable. I have never before had it prepared that way. I couldn't get enough...

Sounds good.

Joanna said...

Sounds good, although the mention of Mediterranean intrigues me. I have to ask, though -- this wouldn't be the Sunday of the race, would it? 'Cause I have a family shindig that day. And, you know, it's the race

Might be able to make it on the 17th. Will try.

Tam said...

I'm down with the 17th.

Joanna said...

The 17th works for me.

The Republic of Turonistan will be sending a delegation to arrive on the 17th.

MCSA said...

Wow... I think I could actually make it!!

Holy crap!

Bonus: the captcha is "behotion".
That could either be the notion that you're being screwed somehow

-or-

some sort of "personal lotion", for intimate times. Does CLP qualify?
