Blogmeet report and link to caption contest

What with fighting a cold[1] and a hard drive simultaneously, I see I’ve neglected to post a report on Sunday’s blogmeet.  Short story: MacCool’s was worth the visit (the sweet potato french fries were an unexpected treat, the corned-beef-and-cabbage egg rolls... well, not sure!).  It was great meeting Joanna, official AoS Moron and Suggester Of the Venue.[2]   Some of the regular faces were missing, hope they can make it next month.

Shermlock takes the prize for coverage, not only for getting the first post up but also for the photos (including a caption contest featuring our favorite stardrive tech).  There’s more at Roberta’s, at Tam’s and a bit at Turk’s.

And you Missing Morons, eat your hearts out!


[1]  ...the cause of Sunday’s dulled mental acuity that resulted in me confusing Roberta’s URL with the name of Tam’s blog.  A cold.  That’s it.  The multiple Guinnesses had nothing to do with it.  Nothing whateverSo stop looking at me like that.  Stop it!

[2]  who fit right in with the Indy blogcrowd, and didn’t seen at all overwhelmed despite the fact that the other Indy Morons, being Morons, wimped out.

AoSHQ “drink your worries away” meetup: Date/time now firm

(I’m waiting on Roberta X’s go ahead to post this as a “joint meeting with the Indy Bloggers,” but I suspect that will occur shortly.  UPDATE 081111: Done!)

Here’s the scoop:

Date:   Sunday, November 23
Time:  3:00 p.m.
Place:  Fionn MacCool’s Pub[1]
  8211 East 116th Street, Fishers [map][2]

Roberta X sez:
This is combined with the Ace of Spades HQ "Moronapalooza/Happy Hour Meet-Up" post-election gathering, so hey -- new friends.  Be nice, now and remember -- no biting!  Mostly.

Bring your friends and your attitude.

[1] Don’t believe the hours shown at restaurant.com... they will be open!

[2] For those unfamiliar with the area, this is outside the I-465 loop, to the northeast.  Closest interstate exit is I-69/116th Street It’s also possible to reach 116th Street from Indianapolis proper by taking Allisonville Rd. north from 96th Street, Keystone Avenue (under construction, but 116th Street intersection is open), or Westfield Boulevard (“Range Line Road” in Hamilton County) north from Broad Ripple.  I strongly recommend avoiding Castleton: 86th Street (Keystone Avenue east to I-69) / I-465 vic. Exit 37 (I-69) or Exit 35 (Allisonville Road) / Allisonville Road south of 96th Street, as all these will be jam-packed with holiday shoppers!

Attention Indy bloggers: AOSHQ Indy Moron Meetup

4th UPDATE 081110 19:29: Date, time, and location are now set.


Maybe some of the gunnies might want to join the morons for some conservative/Republican networking?

3rd UPDATE 081107 21:44:  Seems to be coalescing toward the weekend of the 22nd-23rd (15th-16th has conflicts for several, including me), location Finn McCool’s in Fishers.  Hey Roberta, Sunday 23rd P.M. w/Indy bloggers?

2nd UPDATE 081107 17:43:  Joanna (1st comment above) is doing the organizing.  No date as yet; she has set up a Google group to sort things out. (E-mail her for an invite.)  Will mirror any decision here.

Earlier Ace thread.
