According to Wikipedia, a block party is "a large public celebration in which many members of a single neighborhood congregate...for mutual enjoyment." Often, "there will be celebration in the form of playing music and dance."
As I take a break from drafting my answer to plaintiffs' complaint (yup, still at work), I thought, "We should have a BLOG party!"
I really love reading everybody's comments and reading my commenters' blogs. You guys give me motivation to try to write every day and have really brightened my mood on many occasions with your witticisms and encouragement. If anyone is up for it, I would love to organize a little Blog Party -- bloggers, commenters, lurkers, friends, and general supporters of More Fun Than a Barrel are welcome! I don't know about the "music and dance" part, but I'm thinking something like drinks on a weeknight, Sunday brunch, or a weekend tea. Maybe we can all try a new restaurant together...and then see who can write about it the fastest!
Please comment if you're interested, and feel free to suggest locations and dates. I will summarize more details in another post, and maybe I'll gather interested bloggers' and commenters' e-mails then, since I'd rather not post the final whereabouts and time of our shindig for the entire World Wide Web to ogle. We can do that all over e-mail! At this point, I'd just like to see if there is powwow potential or if the Monkey will end up playing with her iPhone at a table for one.
This is going to be sad if I get no comments. I'll have to scrap my awesome "Meet the Monkey" sign.
If Kate goes, I'll carpool! *squealimg* Bc you recall that I dom't drive morth or west of Irvime. It's out of my comfort zome. *battimg eyelashes*ReplyDelete
I'm in. I vote for downtown. ;)ReplyDelete
Of course I'm in! I was thinking about this recently, too! My blogger buddy Hilary has done this a few times and it's always fun. :-)ReplyDelete
I'm down! Lurker Renee here! I like downtown or Koreatown KareokeReplyDelete
sorry if my user name is creepy, that is my dungeon's and dragons alter ego. Nerd Alert!ReplyDelete
Totally, I'll just jump on the red eye and meet up :) haha or we might just have to set up a webcam.ReplyDelete
Oh, I should add that I'm in if we can do this on a weekend. It would be rough for me to make it out to LA during the week, especially if it's on a school night. Yeah, I'm a nerd. :)ReplyDelete
you know i'm in. :)ReplyDelete
yep, i'm in.ReplyDelete
if you need suggestions on the westside, i can help (just not this early in the morning). although nanette might have better suggestions.
I'm in! Especially since I never went to a Knot GTG. This makes up for it (kinda). I'm with Leslie. Can't do it on Wednesday because it's a school night :)ReplyDelete
If it's a Saturday or Sunday brunch thing, I am in. :)ReplyDelete
My schedule's a PITA lately, so I'll make it if I'm available (I swear I'm almost booked solid through November 9th!) But I don't want to bring 10years because she's not a real blogger. I don't think she's written in her blog since June....ReplyDelete
I'm definitely in...I work in downtown LA but live in Orange County so hoping it's somewhere workable. would love to meet up though!!!ReplyDelete
i'm totally in...i'm a little bias cus i work and live in the south bay so I vote for somewhere in Hermosa, Redondo or Manhattan teeheheReplyDelete
oct sounds good except for the 6tt its octoberfest =)
i'm totally in if i can get the hub to watch the bean!ReplyDelete
I would like to come - I'm a lurker but I am really cool!!
Downtown works for me after 7 or Beverly Hill area( Robertson - Doheny area)
I'm in! Wherever is good for me.ReplyDelete
OK, I vote for the secret burger joint.ReplyDelete
Pshaw...like you had to actually worry about being solo. ;) I'm in and you know I travel so anywhere within California state lines is fine. :) And I also vote for a weekend.ReplyDelete
You're one popular monkey, by the way.
Heck ya I'm in. I've been wanting to do this for a while, but didn't want to scare anyone away with my eagerness to meet my blogging friends. At this point any weekend in October is good. Unfortunately, the only weeknight I'm free are Thursdays.ReplyDelete
OMG! I just started reading your blog...does it matter if I'm still in the probabtionary period? I've been reading Nannett's blog for about a year now & I literally stumbled upon yours last week.ReplyDelete
Brunch - the Abbey in West Hollywood...SO GOOD!!
