There was a gathering of the bloggers at the Hala Kahiki Lounge, in River Grove, Illinois. It was the suggestion of Bubs-- great call!
The turnout was great. When I got there, Bubs was already there, with MizBubs, as were TenS and Mr. TenS, Chris, Megan and a handful of other bloggers. We were soon joined by Spotchy, as well as Bubbles, Kristi and Vikki, along with their father.
Soon, Grant Miller showed up, and we started wondering when Lulu was going to show up; there were a couple of us who knew that she was bringing a couple of secret guest-- two, actually. She finally showed up with Coaster Punchman and his amor, Poor George.
I've commented before on some guys study a year or two ago claiming that bloggers were an anti-social, misanthropic bunch. There was no evidence of that last night, as the pictures will tell.
Vikki, Kristi and Bubs took a moment to honor Presidential Candidate/Blogger Dr. Monkerstein...
...and Bubs and Grant Miller became the most popular bloggers in the universe when they bought the table a round!
It was great seeing Bubs and MizBubs, who have become good friends of Kim and I, as well as Grant Miller, Chris, Megan, Lulu, TenS, Mr. TenS. It was also great meeting Kristi, Vikki, Bubbles and Splotchy. And the drinks at the Hala Kaliki were delicious-- all in all, a great night!
