When: Tuesday June, 12th 5:30 pm until about 8:00 pm

Where: Dave’s Taverna rooftop (weather permitting). If its raining we’ll be inside.

  4. Make that full stregnth BUDWEISER!

  5. Emmy,
    A friend of mine from the Mafia will be jioning us, his name is Nick.

  6. Barnabas says:

    When I’m drinking light it’s New Casle or an Irish Red when I want a good full flavor beer I drink a Guinness. Pilsner is not typically my thing.

  7. Hey,
    Is everyone going to wear a name tag?

  8. Playgirl Politician, I don’t think you know anyone who’s in the Mafia. Your friend must be a wanna be Italian from Jersey!

  9. F.Y.I.
    I don’t think anybody wants to find out!

  12. Barnabas says:

    I like how I’m coming twice.

  13. writergirl says:

    HAHA! Sorry about that! You must be very important ;)

  14. Guess I just assumed you knew my husband was coming Emmy! I’ll be ticked if he has a ball game! In that case…you’ll just have to be my date! :)

  15. writergirl says:

    Sorry, I guess I should have assumed spouses on most of these! But I’ll be your date if he doesn’t come ;)

  16. Had some pretty depressing news this weekend. One of my tenants that just moved in my apartments is stiffing me and moving out. If anyone knows someone that needs a great 1 bedroom in downtown Harrisonburg…tell them to call me. I’m not sure what possessed me to rent apartments and add one more stress to my life!!

  17. zen says:

    Cool, I’m coming twice, or there are two zens! :)

  18. writergirl says:

    Well crap! I spend too much time at a computer! Zen and Barnabas are so special that they are invited twice!

    Christa, not to be nosey (and I can come over for you to tell me) but what is the rent? I might know people!

  19. zen says:

    No sweat writergirl. Thanks for the special invite.

  20. $650.00 includes water & trash. YOU know how nice they are! I’ll tell you about it when I see you. I am so ticked…

  21. finnegan says:

    Stupid question: is anyone bringing a laptop to this thing? Is there wireless access on the roof?

  22. I’m just bringing my camera, sorry. Why do you need a laptop?

  23. Although it sucks that I’m not going to be there, I do think it’s really awesome that Arin Sime is going to be there. Nice to see a candidate take some time out to meet and mingle with a bunch of bloggers and so forth.

    Now I really wish I could be there.

  24. Not to mention, I’d meet a bunch of people I talk to on the internet or via blogs all the time.

    I think the only person out of that whole list that I’ve met in person is Finnegan, and that was just on Friday.

  25. whackette says:

    I hope you have a very good reason. :)

  26. Barnabas says:

    I see where finnegan is going with this, I’ll bring the blowtorch and the duct tape.

  27. Thanh says:

    Unfortunately, I wont be able to make it anymore. Enjoy the evening!

  28. MikeFus says:

    Brent – I could bring my laptop

  29. finnegan says:

    Great! Thanks. I really need to get one of those.

  30. TM says:

    finnegan, are you going to be live-blogging the event for all the no-shows? Heh.

  31. finnegan says:

    Ha. Sure. Why not.

    5:57 – Just ordered a Boddington’s.

    6:24 – People laughing about the Sayre mailings

    6:48 – Ordered another Boddington’s

    7:00 – Intentionally diverted conversation away from politics and onto beer.
