Another Excuse To Drink

Just a reminder that our second of two closely-scheduled BARBARian gatherings is coming up this Wednesday, August 1st, at Ben 'N Nick's Bar & Grill, 5612 College Ave, Oakland. Show up at 6pm and get an early start, or show up later and expect to find some animated bloggers swilling beer and pillaging and plundering away. All Bay Area Bloggers And Readers are welcome.

More Beer!

It's time. In point of fact, it's past time. The BARBARians have not gathered together to drink beer for months now, and the liquor salesmen and -women of the greater Bay Area are starting to get a little panicky. To alleviate their concerns -- and to put a few coins in their coffers -- the following get-together has been proposed: This Saturday, July 21st, at the Phoenix Irish Pub, located at 811 Valencia Street in San Francisco (easy walking distance from either the 16th and Mission or 24th and Mission BART stations), starting at approximately 1pm until we can't stand anymore they throw us all out on our collective ass BART stops running.

And because it's been so long since we all got together, and because some people won't be able to make it this Saturday (or can't make it any Saturday), we're proposing a second gathering on Wednesday, August 1st, starting at 6pm, at either Glen Park Station in SF or Ben & Nick's in Oakland. Vote for your preference in the comments section here, or send an email to me, and I'll announce the decision by the end of this week.

Beer-Thirty Already?

Some of you have commented recently on how long it's been since we all got together to drink a few pints (or Manhattans, as the case may be), and you're all right, it has been too long. I know this is short notice, but what say you to a gathering this Saturday, the 21st? Any interest? Nothing has been set up yet (like location, for instance), and if that doesn't work for many of you, there are other dates further in the future that we can consider. I just wanted to put that out there to see what kind of response it generates, and whether or not we should go forward on a short schedule or try to plan something a little later.

So... anyone? Anyone? Bueller?
