This is probably the weakest diary I've ever written, but I've got to put something up quick to get the word out to anyone in the vicinity of Long Beach, California, intending to participate in NYbri's blograiser on Monday.

This particular blograiser is of the "No Refuge for Republicans" variety, raising money for both Brian Keeler and Jim Brandt (CA-46).

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.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
