A Blogger Pow-wow


A handful of bloggers, including me, Grant Miller, Evil Genius, The Idea of Progress and probably Bubs will be there. It's at Feed The Beast, at 4300 N. Lincoln (Lincoln and Cullom), in Chicago. Street parking is plentiful*, and it's about two blocks south of the Western el stop on the Brown Line. Be there or be talked about behind your back.


*if you are coming down Western, turn on Cullom-- it's one-way heading east. You can park on Cullom. There's metered parking on Lincoln. If all else fails, park in the Jewel's parking lot.

The Idea Of Progress said...

I plan on talking about everyone to their face.

"You know what Johnny Yen said about you?"

"Grant Miller told me you're great in the sack."

"Evil Genius wept a little bit when your name came up."

All quotes attributable to me may or may not be exact.

Johnny Yen said...

I can already tell that we're going to get along just fine...

The Elk said...

Beware of Potrafka....

Beth said...

I wanna go ................

The Mekons are playing two shows back to back at Old Town, so parking may not be as good as usual.

Skylers Dad said...

I need to go on a road trip...

Johnny Yen said...

Elk-
You should come on down here. I'll do a dramatic reading from Potrafka's poetry classic "Small and Wrong."

Beth-
If you leave now, you should get here in time...

Kim-
Good point. The Old Town School does have a big parking lot there, though, and Feed the Beast is far enough south of the school that it shouldn't be too bad.

Skyler's Dad-
I look forward to the day where you and I can have a drink together!

SamuraiFrog said...

Aw, man, there's no way I can go. Have fun, everybody!

Grant Miller said...

Thank you for calling it "The Jewel's."

Johnny Yen said...

Samurai-
Bummer! You need to make the next one.

Grant-
I thought you'd appreciate that.

Evil Genius said...

I'm going to be late. I am too busy leaving comments on your blog.

Valerie said...

It's 7:33 p.m. and my ears are ringing. You must be talking about me right now.

Barbara Bruederlin said...

And those salads look really good too!

Have a great blogger fest! I'm a little afraid to think what sort of place the world is going to become after you lot spend a couple of hours together. I met up with Tanya Espanya today and I know this city will never be the same again.

If you speak of me, speak kindly.

Distributorcap said...

Bubs said...

And a good time was had by all!

Skylers Dad said...

Reports of widespread looting and fires in Chicago on CNN this morning. Anything that you folks want to fess up to? ;^)

BeckEye said...

I wanna go too, Beth. How about this...you pay for everything and I'll come along.

'Bubbles' said...

Oh, I'm jealous. That sounds like fun. How did it go?

Tenacious S said...

Didn't find out about this until too late. Damn! See what happens when your router breaks for weeks on end. Back online again. Hope you guys had a great time.
