Baltimore Blogger Octovember Happy Hour!

What fun! Last night was our Blogger Happy Hour at Holy Frijoles in Hampden. It was a fairly large turnout as happy hours go, and there was a mix of 'regulars' as well as some new (and some old) faces. Although Snay is our honorary archivist for Blogger Happy Hours, I thought as co-host (with Danielle) I should give naming everyone a try.

Bloggers were in abundance, and they included Snay, Anger Hangover (minus one LF), Johnny $ (and wife $), Broadsheet, Zenchick, JJT, Summer (and hubby), Baltimore Snacker, Anonymous Coworker (and lovely wife), JWER, Ancestral Pile (and manservant), Angie (and Donna), Your Neighborhood Librarian, Cheese, Grin without a Cat, Technology & MSG, Wagner's House, Berlow's Freak Show (blogger formally known as The Cynicism of Diogenes), Viddy This, islendingabull, Drama Duchess and one out of town visitor, Atlanta Social (and husband).Am I forgetting anyone?

It was a really fabulous turnout, and we celebrated two birthdays: Johnny $ and JJT. Plans ranging from our next happy hour, drag queen bingo, Darkover, a visit to the shooting range and a fusing glass meetup were begun, and it was also a late night, since JWER, Broadsheet, JJT, Anger Hangover and I closed the happy hour (not the bar) down. For me, I experienced a small scare when I got home as a result of my apartment smelling like gas (one pilot light on the stove top was out), but after resolving that situation, I fell asleep on the couch like one class A drinking blogger.

There were some missing faces this time around, though, despite the good turnout, so keep a lookout for our next group event so that you all can join us the next go around. A few photos to be posted shortly, and remember to check out Blogger Zombies for blogger event updates! Ciao!

Update: Photos!

Your hosts for this evening - Danielle and Me!

Jon and I show off our crowns.

A Charissa sandwich - love from JWER and Snay. (I totally swapped out my original photo for this one from Danielle... MUCH better.)




I wish I could post more, but some of our bloggers are private folk, so their identities must remain a mystery to those that don't frequent these events. For shame.

I'm posting some photos about it now! It took me this long. But it's in haiku so I'm trying to make it worth the wait :D
