'Twas The Night Before...

Oh Lordy, it's finally here! Extravablogiversapaloozathon 2008, the third annual revelation of the blogtastic talent in and around our mountain metropolis. In 24 hours folks will begin to fill The Courtyard. AHOPE, a bastion of compassion and aid, will rake in the loot ($10 minimum suggested donation) to support their myriad programs helping the homeless. Bloggers of every shape and size, stripe and sizzle will drink to the health of our online community.

The votes for the BlogAsheville Awards have been tabulated and are securely locked in my messenger bag. Lots of surprises.

Remember if you won an award last year to bring a prize this year! If you won two awards, bring two prizes, etc.

We will also be raffling off some byootiful Day In The Life Of Asheville prints with the proceeds also going to AHOPE.

Here's hoping Petulant Rumblings wears another pair of striking shoes, Errington Thompson brings enough pens for everyone, Uptown Ruler can stay awake past dark, our farther flung rural bloggerati make the trip into town, and all of you noobs debut.

We'll have cold beer, hot coffee, and BYOB. We'll have foodstuffs from The Colorful Palate and Laurey's Catering. We'll have music from Tennessee Hollow, the If You Wannas, and DJ Swiftboat. We'll have VJing from Megan at the Media Arts Project. All of our sponsorin' peoples will be there to Blog Chere the magic.

But most importantly it'll be hot blogger on blogger action all night long. I'm looking forward to meeting so many of you. Bring your dancing shoes and your drinking legs, because it's going to be the bloggiest, bashiest festivus ever.

I'll bring some extra Edgy Mama Tees for raffle or throwing into the crowd or wearing during the hot blogger on blogger action.

Thanks to all of you who've been madly organizing this event. I'll see you at setup!
