Have a Merry BARBARian Holiday

It's that special time of year, the Winter Solstice is upon us. Also many cultures celebrate their Holy Days by holding wild office parties where the accounting folks dance nude on the tables and junior account executives show they can't hold their drink.

So, let's meet to drink and eat our fill and regale each other with raucous tales of skirmishes in the culture wars.

Once again we will hold our festivities at Ben 'N Nick's Bar & Grill in Oakland, on Thursday, December 15, at 6 PM until Bart closes.

If you feel so inclined, please bring a trinket to exchange with your favorite Barbarian.

I hate to say anything, because as often as not I flake on these things, but I do plan to be there.

mrgumby, sir,

You've always made to Ben & Nick's, haven't you?

No GG Bridge to fight traffic and all...

Humbug! I'll try to make it, but odd are, won't. I'm supposed to be a guest on a podcast that night. Heh.

And the linkage for the bar doesn't seem to be workin'

You're always helping me get things right. Grazie mille!

Can you do the podcast from there?

I'll be there with rings and bows.

Don't think I can do the podcast there ... it's being taped for later release, and I need to Skype in (ah, the life of the quasi-famous writer).

Since it's in Oakland, though, I'm hoping I can duck out to the meet, and then do the taping later.

Will there be a Xerox machine so we can photocopy our asses? I think that's a Xmas party tradition, isn't it?

Wait. Accounting folks dance nude on the tables? Dammit, I knew I should have gone to business school.

See you tomorrow night!

The Double Battle Axe Symbol is shining bright at Corrente.

Do we think B&N's has the capacity to make Frothy Wingnuts? I guess we'll find out.

See youse there.

Excellent analysis! I wish someday to emulate your most accurate and informative website!!

Have you tried my recipe for ice cold Manhattans?. They're tasty with a pitcher of beer!

(Just watch out where you step.)

I'm sorry, but I just have to ask: Did someone blow chunks by the bathroom that night?

Coverage of the vomit puddle with pages from the East Bay Express was the modern-day equivalent of throwing your cape over a puddle.

Nice touch, and hats off to the kind folks at Ben N' Nicks for being so accommodating.
