I tacked Brandt onto this local event because (1) he's running in the Blue Nile's district, (2) he's in desperate need of cash, and (3) I firmly believe in contesting every race, coast to coast, until we drive this mutant Republican philosophy into the ground and mark it with a radioactive tombstone to warn of 1000 generations. We probably won't win CA-46, but I have a patriotic duty to help buy Brandt the bullets he needs for his insurgency against a Republican stronghold. Details below the fold.
Blue Nile Cafe & Lounge (myspace)
438 E Broadway
Long Beach, CA 90802
TIME/DATE: 6pm-10pm, Monday September 25 2006.
I'll bring one laptop, voter registration forms and wine for anyone who donates. Sorry, "free riders" are why this country's in the state it's in.
The BlueNile has free wifi, coffee and food. With a little luck, a few of the poets, b-boys and artists who frequent the spot will come thru. (It's that kind of spot.) If someone asks nicely after a few glasses of wine, I might be convinced to stand up and present one of those rants ya'll so enjoy. If you're a musician, poet or artist yourself, bring your gear. Blue Nile has a stage and I think they still have the "painters' wall" up for anyone who wants to pick up a brush.
I'll show up around 6pm and stay until closing (10pm). Use the poll to let me know I won't be sitting there reading the comments on the front page all by myself. (whimper)
Oh yeah: BYOB, however you define it. (This is California...)
p.s. If you need my number, check google.
