The time is almost upon us for the Crashing the States event with Darcy Burner here in the Seattle/WA-08 area!

Just in case you've missed it, here are the basics on what the project is all about, from the project's official site:

CRASHING THE STATES is a cross-country journey to capture firsthand the excitement and activism of netroots-supported campaigns. Inspired by the netroots movement and Markos Moulitsas Zúniga and Jerome Armstrong's insightful book "CRASHING THE GATE", bloggers Gary Abramson (Reality Bites Back) and Dante Atkins (Hekebolos) will travel across the states connecting with members of local blogging communities participating in campaign activities to support their candidates. From within the campaigns, they will report first hand the coordination, confusion, energy, trials and determination of netroots activists as they work to secure electoral victory. Bloggers and their candidates will be interviewed to find out who they are, what inspired them to action, and what impact, both expected and unexpected, their efforts are yielding.

Original Diary I posted for this event last month

As of now, everything appears to be going as planned. We'll begin gathering at about 6pm, this coming Monday night, and keep things open for those that are heading to the Gore speech at the Key Arena at 8pm.

The exact address of the location is:

2400 4th Ave. Seattle 98121, cross street is Battery

Here's the location on MapQuest.

Erevann's place is just a block south of the Belltown Uptown Espresso, site of innumerable gatherings of progressives, including the early Dean Meetups (ahhh, those were the days...).

As for food and drink, I'll be providing juice and cheese and crackers type stuff (can't cook to save my life!). A few other folks that have been in touch are bringing more food and such as well, so if you're ambitious, feel free to bring something yourself!

I can be reached through my hotmail address, listed on my profile here. Feel free to contact me if you need any further info or would like to show up early and help set up!

The building is the Fountain Court Apts, across the street from the fire station on 4th and Battery in Belltown. There’s a UPark kitty-corner from the building, as well as street parking which is free after 6pm.

Look forward to seeing everyone there!

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.
