Yo!!! Interested in a Jersey Blogmeet? (Updated)

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jim @ 8:54 pm


New Jersey Map.gifSome offline communication has resulted in a decision to see whether there is any interest out there in attending a Jersey Blogmeet. Discussions are very preliminary, but here’s where things are at the moment. Please understand that some or all of the following is subject to change, based upon the interest that is shown in the event.

The Date: The working date is March 26, 2005

The Time: Starting time is to be determined. It will be over when the last person leaves.

The Place: The American Legion Lounge in Union, New Jersey, which serves as the meeting place for the Usual Suspects, about whom much has been written here.

The Details: Current plans call for an open bar and catered food. Therefore, a headcount and advance payment will be necessary. (The working figure at this moment is $30-35 per person).

Of course, non-Jersey Bloggers are also invited.

If you would be interested in attending such an event, please leave a comment here or on Kate’s site, and we’ll go from there, including providing a list of hotels/motels in the area.

P.S. If you have a guitar, please feel free to bring it, provided you’re willing to play it.

  2. Damn. If I can’t bring a guitar to do my Quick-Draw McGraw “El Kabong” imitation, then I’m not coming. 🙂

  3. Does this mean you’re dissing us the 16th? Or are you Mr. I Want a Blogmeet Every Three Weeks kind of a guy? I can probably do both.

  8. Count me in, I think. This is just days after I return from the meet-up in New Orleans. I don’t recover as quickly as I used to.

  20. Damn, wish we could go! Jersey is pretty central, and close enough to have potential even coming from MA.
