Wanna meet some Media Mavens tomorrow?

media mavens style

Once a month, us Baltimore Media Mavens get together to kick back a few drinks and complain about the State of Things.

Things ain't so hot in the World of Journalism lately.

Sick of my Unnecessary Capitalization? OK, I'll stop.

Anyhow, us media types take turns throwing happy hours for each other. And the next one is tomorrow (Thursday, April 16) from 5 p.m. until about 7 p.m. at the Metro Gallery (1700 N. Charles St.) ...

I'm not sure about the drink specials, but I hear the beer is going to be served in brown paper bags, which is awesome. This particular Media Mavens Happy Hour is being hosted by the folks at Gutter Magazine.

There will be some Baltimore Sun peeps, as well as writers of Style Magazine, former Baltimore Examiner writers ... the list goes on.

I'm going to be there a little before 6 p.m. and stay for a round or two. I've got to head to Max's (737 S. Broadway) and be a celebrity judge on Quiz-A-Ma-Jig later that night.

See ya there.

Dammit Sessa! These are supposed to be secret meetings! At least you didn't teach them the super-secret handshake.

wish i could be there, but i will be on my way to cali.

Who controls the British Crown?
Who keeps the metric system down?
We do, we do.
Who keeps Atlantis off the maps?
Who keeps the Martians under wraps?
We do, we do.
Who holds back the electric car?
Who makes Steve Guttenberg a star?
We do, we do.
Who robs cave fish of their sight?
Who rigs every Oscar night?
We do, we do!

Stay posted for my video of the Media Mavens Super-Secret Handshake ...

all the bloggers in the city say "YEAH!"

meh............. um, errr....... yeah.

Ugh... How many hipsters does it take to screw in a light bulb.

not as many as it takes douchey Fed Hill meat heads to that's for sure. Damn, try to invite people to a happy hour for local bloggers... guess we should have sports bar Lite beer pong specials and red cups...then it would have been "sweet!"

Wait there's gonna be Miller Lite in red cups?!?!?! YESSSSSSSSS

I was promised flip cup. I popped my collar for this!!
