It's been a while since I've organized one of these bashes. I hope that's left you all yearning to get together again, and not too annoyed at your humble hostess; I apologize for the hiatus, but life's been, um, interesting these last six months. I miss you all, and I'm looking forward to seeing your smiling faces again!
Now follow me beneath the gnocchi to learn who our special guests will be:
Please join me in welcoming the redoubtable gchaucer2, who has helped countless kossacks give up smoking and who recently was instrumental in getting NYC's own Eric Lewis'Animal Nuz a niche on the front page and Phil S 33, historian, Gulf Watcher extraordinaire, and participant in navajo's terrific new community feature, NEW DAY.
They're all the way down from the wilds of Connecticut, and other folks from beyond the boroughs will be joining us, too! Scroll down here to see some of the RSVP list, so far. Let's welcome them, reconnect with old friends and make some new ones!
We'll be gathering at Spitzer's Corner, where the food is yummy and the drinks are awesome. If you've come to any of our earlier meetups there, you know I'm not exaggerating!
Here's the data:
