So Nice, We’re Doing It Twice

So, El Jefe De Oro calls me yesterday afternoon to let me know that while this idea of doing a Field Expedient Smittypalooza next month is all well and good, he’d like to see all y’alls’ smiling faces a little earlier than that, preferably in mid-week sometime. Consulting my calendar to see when I’m going to get paid again, it looks like the most opportune time for this knees-up would be the week of August 24-30, which isn’t quite two weeks warning, but it’s the best we can do without shoving things into August. I am tentatively looking at Wednesday the 27th or Thursday the 28th, probably at the RockIt Grill mentioned by Smitty in the comments of the last post since it’s convenient to the Metro. Leave suggestions, RSVPs, and appropriate image macros in the comments.


Also, in case nothing better comes along, this will serve as the Friday Morning Open Thread.

    Not sure about those dates, but a Wednesday is probably better than a Thursday for me.

    Wish I could be there; would love to meet all y’all in meatspace.

    And an open thread? How Ace-ish! Is there a barrel too?

    Sorry, can’t make that – gotta drive up from Tidewater and have ship rides that week.

    Maybe in September?

  • Wombat_socho

    I hear you. I’m frankly not expecting that big a turnout for this one, given the short notice and the timing, but we’ll be happy to see whoever shows up.

  • Wombat_socho

    Agreed. It’s probably going to be the 27th unless El Jefe decrees otherwise.

  • Conservatronic

    You all need to get out of the People’s Republic of Alexandria and head out west to red-state Virginia.

  • Wombat_socho

    Well, the Field Expedient Smittypalooza looks like it’s going to be in Herndon, so there’s that.

    Damn, even when I lived briefly in Virginia, I tried to stay away from the greater DC area.

    Just let us know, certainly Stacy needs the slaps on the back for his brilliant (some would say crazy – looking at Instapundit) win over the terrorist.

  • JeffWeimer

    Maybe, but it would have to be on a Friday or Saturday night.

  • Wombat_socho

    September’s is going to be on 9/12.

  • JeffWeimer

    The 12th might actually work.
