Blogger Meet up Update #3

Thursday, January 17, 2008
Alright, so here's the scoop on the blogger meet-up in Baltimore. You all will come to Baltimore on April 18th and will leave on April 20th or whenever you decide to leave.

We'll have fun. We'll do Pazo on Friday night, maybe...I'll have to think more about that. Saturday morning and afternoon, we'll do whatever people want to do. Saturday evening, Cocoa can bring out his koochie-koochie headdress or whatever he calls it for the dinner. And trust me when I say I'm eagerly awaiting it.

The actual dinner will be hosted downtown at a suite at the Residence Inn by Marriott Downtown Baltimore/Inner Harbor. I posted a link to area hotels a few posts back. Just scroll down to find and click that.

I'll cover the cost of the suite and provide the pots and pans, plates, glassware (and stemware for wine if that what people want to do) warming tins and burners, and a griddle somebody randomly gave me one Christmas that never gets used. Purchasing stuff directly related to the dinner will be a collective effort. There's a Super Fresh a couple blocks north and a Whole Foods on the other side of the Inner Harbor. It takes 5-10 mins to drive there. For you fancy-smancy bitches, there's a Fresh Market and a Wegmans off the JFX just outside the city. It takes about 45 minutes or so to get there.

I know everybody won't come and names of interested folk have been mentioned, but I'd like to have at least 6 or 7 people commit before reserving the room, gathering materials, etc. With that said, please let me know as soon as you can if you're coming. Don't commit without checking your calendar and if you aren't sure just yet, but know you're really interested, then say that, too.

Either way let me know soon

Mr. Jones said...

that looks so fabulous! i haven't gotten back my vacay requests yet so its still up in the air.

Mr. Jones said...

Cool. I understand people can't definitively say yes right now. That's all good. I just wanna know who realistically thinks they may be coming and has set the wheels in motion. The maybe list may be 13 or 14 people, but 5 or 6 may realistically show. And that's cool, just looking for an idea.

With that said, I'd love for you to make it down esp. since you can take I-70 and I-76 straight from Pittsburgh.

Hmm... april is kinda heavy travel wise for me but maybe I can swing a quick weekend trip. If I can take the vacation time without my job questioning if I am interviewing at other companies for missing so much work, I'm in, lol.

What do you mean Pazo "maybe." I like your ideas. My suggestion is the dinner on Friday. When people come from out of town they like to unwind. Getting ready to go out after traveling may be a tad daunting. Besides, Pazo is pretty unpredictable on Fridays. You can almost guarantee for it to be jumpin on Saturday though.

That Dude Right There said...

Well since I may be transitioning job, I don't know if i'll be able to make it or not. But as soon as I find out, i'll be sure to inform.

Darius T. Williams said...

Okay - I'm totally there! No one else committed wow - lemme work on the Chicago folks to see what can happen - not making promises though. Pazo sounds totally good - we can do it either Friday or Saturday - doesn't matter. AND, I think it'd be good if we do some type of deal where everyone makes a dish - you know, that way people can make what they know how (preferably their best dish - and as the fattest in the group, I'm giving out the truth about the dishes). I think that way when we do go shopping, people can purchase things for their dish. Just a thought...But yea, I'm in.

Mr. Jones said...

Well...when you hoes get a better idea...let me know please.

Darius - I think you and Cocoa are pretty solid, so I'll move forward with these plans. It'll be fun even if it's just us three and any boos who may tag along.

Kensilo said...

I'm interested in attending. Keep me abreast.

Cocoa Rican said...

I'm so there...I never saw this!

yet another black guy said...

ooh dang, i'm super trying to get there! if nothing else, but i have got to go to Pazo.

It's no fun if you don't say anything.
