    @Carolina Dave: Maybe Cleek will come out to play. Wish we could be there but Mrs H and I will be soaking in the Hot Sulfur Springs of the Rocky Mountains and recounting our eclipse stories.

    i’ll pencil it in.

    tho i’m always afraid i’ll show up to one of these things and learn that i’ve been in a flame war with everybody there, at one time or another.

    I don’t think I can make it. Bianca and The Girl wouldn’t approve of me leaving them alone for that long.

    Could somebody pick me up a “DURM” t-shirt I saw on HGTV? Or the one I saw on Columbus Avenue the other day: black with white Helvetica lettering spelling out in all caps “ORGASM DONOR”?

    J/k of course.

    @Big Ole Hound: It’s cloudy here, I ain’t hiking to get any pics. I may set up the cam on a tripod outside the cave if it clears.

    I spend about 3 months a year in the Triangle, but I am out west now so I won’t make this meetup. Maybe next time.

    I just moved last month from the Triangle! Rats. Ponysaurus is the best brewery in Durham though, so enjoy it!

    Long-time lurker here. Ponysaurus is an outstanding choice! Maybe I’ll pull myself from behind the cupboard and stop by.

    Also a long-time lurker. Been a while since I’ve been to Ponysaurus. Is it still dog friendly? This being Balloon Juice, I assume bringing dogs to the event is ok?
