Asheville Bloggers Autumn Cotillion and Freedom March

7pm at The Usual Suspects
{directions here}

By unanimous declaration of the assembled bloggers at the First Annual Blogapalooza BBQ and Freedom March, the last Friday of each month was chosen for everyone who's got a pretty red link on the BlogAsheville sidebar to come together and jawbone the crux of the biscuits. That is, it's time to get together, drain a few pints, and see where the tangents take us.

Here's a list of every blog to represent themselves at our past gatherings: Modern Peasant, 1000 Black Lines, Edgy Mama, AV, The Syntax of Things, DEMbloggers, Sweet Tea, The Hangover Journals, Lowell Allen's Serial Photo, The Avant Garden, Bad Ass, Tingle Alley, Bird on the Moon, The Stars That Usher Evening Rose, The Penguin-Driven Life, blogophile Jim Jenkins, and Scrutiny Hooligans. If I left you off the list, show up and whack me in the head please.

Image Hosted by ImageShack.usI hope to see you all again, and I really hope to meet some of you folks who've been biding your time. Waiting for the right venue, the right night, the right mood, you've hung back and deliberated long enough. BlogAsheville is all of us, so claim your seat at the table this Friday.

I'm looking to hearing about Flashville, Drinking Liberally, the Asheville 2006 International Blogorama, the Greensboro bloggercon, the Russian Orthodox Church, the Cultural Wasteland, Janus Watchers, Future Baby, online music, your art, your music, and so on and so forth.

Email Uptown Ruler (who is fast speeding into a birthday) with any questions, suggestions, hesitations, or inspirations. See you there.

Pouting here. I'll be at a wedding in Atlanta. Ash can give you an update on Flashville. And anyone who wants to read and/or edit the first 30 pages of Janus Watchers, e-mail me! I'll miss y'all.

sounds like a fun time!

Uptown Ruler said...

ill be there with mtn faerie.

Sweet Tea said...

Darn, EM I was looking forward to meeting you! Maybe next time.

This time Uptown and I will not be bringing our spawn.

We actually plan on staying out a little later than usual and celebrating, an unheard of event!

Sweet Tea said...

celebrating his birthday, I should say.

Edgy Mama said...

Damn, I'll miss meeting y'all as well, MF. And celebrating Uptown's b'day.

Happy early birthday, o great BA ruler.

Hey
this sounds fun! How do I get my blog listed so I can help celebrate Uptown Ruler's birthday--I will really miss meeting Eddy Women though.

Sorry, ya'll. I won't be able to make it. I've had a fall BBQ (mostly vegan, some what flexitarian, no red meat) planned for several weeks and can't back out of it.

Sweet Tea said...

So who is coming? Anyone?

Car, I suppose no one could stop you from showing up at a meeting. It would be most intriguing to see you in person.

car said...

umm, that doesn't seem to welcoming from a group that professes to support freedom and the independent spirit of bloggers. So how can I get one of those nice links on blogasheville anyhow--or do I have to join the filthy hippie club?

Sweet Tea said...

Car sweetie, I haven't quite figured you out. Of course, your link request will be granted. Consider your free spirit one with our blogroll.

And as far as you being welcome at a meeting, of course, please join us! As I said, it would be most intriguing to see you in person.

Blogasheville is knee deep in sarcasm and satire, and your twisted, potty-mouth humor is well appreciated, by some. So get yourself a date for Friday and come on out!

Uptown Ruler said...
