Should we have the blogger dinner early?

This year, I've heard that more people than usual are coming for minister days and not sticking it out for GA.

Would it make sense to have our blogger dinner (usually on Friday night) on, like, Wednesday night instead? That would have to be lateish, perhaps too late. But it would be awesome to try to have hangout time that could include the people who are leaving early.

Failing that, do some of y'all want to find a quiet bar for Wednesday night? Last year we had this blogger-dinner-afterparty where we sat up until two in the morning discussing lots of topics I don't remember other than one blogger telling me that he/she would like to make out with another blogger. (Your secret is safe with me beyond that.)

It was way, way awesome.

I haven't planned a blogger dinner yet, and if nobody else wants to, I'm happy to do it this year. But some input on the timing would be helpful...

Hope wherever it is, and whenever it is, that it's as fun as the two previous years!

I'm looking forward to it, but haven't yet studied the schedule, and so have no idea what days would be best.

In considering CC's offer of planning the party, you should keep in mind that for some time she made her living by planning parties and such for congressmen. Some of them were even such admirable characters as your average UU, although by no means all.

It's not really an event-planning thing. I'd just be looking for consensus on a restaurant, making the reservations and taking RSVPs.

Wish I could be there, wherever, whenever!

My favorite memory of walking to that bar was "LOOK AT YA'LL ALL DRESSED UP AND LOOKIN' LIKE FAMILY."

Glad to see you're taking this on. If I have money to get to Fort Ladida I'll definitely just go for a few days.
