Anybody Up for Another Seattle Meet-Up?

Request from party-sparker Yutsano:

Time for me to venture to the Emerald City once more!

Slight tighter deadline for set-up as I’ll be in town from the 20th to the 23rd of January. My medical stuff is the 23rd but otherwise I have zero planned at this point.

And yes this time I will check where we’re meeting so I know for sure! I will be staying downtown however so I will have some flexibility.

Leave a comment below, or email me directly at annelaurie.bj@gmail.com, and I’ll forward your message to Yutsano.



Proof of Life: Seattle Meet-Up

Apologies for the delay; because stuff was happening (and not just on the blog), turned out I was waiting on photos I already had. From commentor ThalarctosMaritimus:

A group of local BJers came out on Friday night to welcome the lovely and talented ruemara to Seattle, and a great time was had by all!

From left, around the table: Maccheerful, CaseyL, Mike J, opiejeanne, mr. opiejeanne, beautifulplumage, thalarctosMaritimus, ruemara, H.E.Wolf, and chopper.

A big thank-you to CaseyL and ruemara for arranging it, and to beautifulplumage, an alumna of the Pike Place Brewery Pub who not only served as our expert guide to the nuances of different beer selections, but who also is commemorated there in pictures on the wall.

Final note from ThalarctosMaritimus:

Another display there bore out the appropriateness of the choice of site

REPOST: Seattle Meetup, This FRIDAY Dec. 8, 7pm PST

From ace party-planner & commentor Casey L:

We’ve finalized plans for the Seattle Meetup in honor of ruemara coming to town:

Friday December 8 at 7:00 PM

Pike Place Brewery Pub
1415 1st Ave, Seattle, WA 98101

I have made reservations under my name and “Balloon Juice” for 10 people, and will be happy to add more if needed. Also, people should know that parking in downtown Seattle is a royal PITA, so please take public transit if possible.

Seattle Meet-Up: Venue Suggestions?

From Seattle party planner Casey L:

Ruemara is coming to Seattle, so of course we’d love to do a meetup in her honor. I’ve been emailing her some ideas for where to eat in downtown Seattle, and there are too many choices. She has suggested I try to poll the Seattle BJ community for preferences, along these lines:

1. Needs to be downtown, as Ruemara will not have a car.

2. We’d like to stay in the $20/person range.

Proof of Life: Photos from Sunday’s LA-Area Meetup

From indefatigable camera artist (& fellow night owl) BillinGlendale:

Here’s 3 shots from today’s Balloon Juice meetup in Pasadena. We had a long set of tables all pushed together so I had to take shots from several angles to get everyone in.

I don’t have all the names(or nyms), but I’ll give it a try for each photo(clockwise)

Photo 1 [at top]: Unsure, unsure, Mr. OpieJeanne, OpieJeanne, their friend, Roger Moore, Fair Economist, unsure.

Photo2: Unsure, unsure, Mr. OpieJeanne, OpieJeanne, unsure, Uncle Ebeneezer, unsure, Mnemosyne, Ruckus, dmsilev, unsure, OpieJeanne’s friend, Roger Moore, Fair Economist, unsure.

Fine-looking batch of jackals, every one! Identify yourself, if you choose to…



Thor’s Day Evening Open Thread & L.A. Meetup Info

Our Los Angeles jackals have picked a time and place:

The Balloon Brunch will begin at 11 AM on Sunday November 12 at Lucky Baldwin’s Trappists in Pasadena, on Colorado near Pasadena City College. (Not the one in Pasadena Old Town nor the one in Sierra Madre.) Be there or be square.

Anyone watching Maddow? Very disturbing segment on the destruction of the US State Department. Just when I was wrapping my head around the utter depravity of the Republican Party, which is making excuses for pedophile Roy Moore…

Anyhoo. Open thread.
