04/12/2005: Advance notice: Next Memphis Blogger's Bash?
This is a bit early to be making the call, but a couple of upcoming events have me wanting to nail down an appropriate date for the next Memphis Blogger's Bash.
First, on May 12 Abby defends her dissertation. Once done, she's got nothing earthshaking to do but collect the Ph.D. and prepare for the move to The Hub Of The Universe. An Excellent Excuse for a Party.
Second, my co-blogger Karen has decided that, as an honorary (of sorts) Memphian, she wants to actually experience The Bluff City, so she's going to be coming down to visit. Needless to say, she wants to meet as many members of Memphis' Blogging Community as possible. Another Excellent Excuse for a Party.
In the interests of efficiency (as I will be headed to Chicago shortly thereafter to see Kraftwerk perform in their Windy City stop of their '05 tour, I need to conserve both funds and energy), I want to combine the two events. Seems to me that a Blogger's Bash on Wednesday, May 25 or Thursday, May 26, would do that perfectly. And Abby's already suggested that the Bar-B-Q Shop on Madison in Midtown would be ideal. And as one of the Guests of Honor, that suggestion carries a lot of weight with me (the other Guest of Honor assures me that any recommendation I make--and I highly second Abby's suggestion--is fine by her).
So what say y'all? Is there interest for a gathering around that time? Leave your reactions in the comments (or email me at the link given in the left-hand sidebar).
