We're all set for the soiree

I just got off the phone with Brendan from Idle Hour, who said it's cool to have the soiree at his place.

I mean, I was going to have it there whether he wanted to or not, because I play by my own rules, but I was just being courteous, ya know.

He said drinks are free between 7:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.* So get there early.

I'm getting name badges ("Hello my name is") and a Sharpie. That way we know who is who.

I'm hoping the soiree will devolve into something like this.

*Brendan didn't actually say this. He implied it.**

**Ok, ok, he didn't imply it either. I just made it up. But he did say something about knocking a buck off beers and Chartreuse shots.

What do you mean by we, Kemosabe?

It appears a fair number of the Baltimore coterie inflexibly have other plans.
How many are actually committed to coming?

Well, I'd be happy to have 10-20 people there. Are you coming, GDA?

Also, everyone, feel free to bring significant others/spouses/etc.

what day is said soiree?

c'mon GDA! you gotta come and bring your encyclopedias!

I'll be there! the music there! Drat the damn pre season. Have fun!

Yeah, what day again, SS?

Thursday Aug. 28 at 7 p.m. at the Idle Hour in Federal Hill.

Be there!

While intrigued, my appearance is highly improbable. Being in New Jersey, an hour due west of Midtown Manhattan (NYC), not Baltimore makes for a distance problem.
Now if there was a Star Trek transporter available…
