We (the bloggers) met and we had fun!

Written By: Gary on June 4, 2006 10 Comments

So we met at Piece Pizzeria there was a bunch of us. Kevin (with wife Katie and brother and future sister-in-law ), Dave, Jenny, RW and wife, Kelly, Ariana, Steve and Susan, and myself.

Logo from Dave at Blogograpy.comWe had all kinds of pizzas, I mostly ate the standards and the weirdest was cheese with mashed potatoes (I wasn’t as fond as some of there others were). Chatted, took photos and more. After we were there for a while most of us left and went to a tequila bar but I don’t think anyone got any tequila, maybe I’m wrong and it was just a bar (it turns out it was the Salud Tequila Lounge) and chatted some more…

It was great meeting everyone and I look forward to doing it again some time. It was night to see some faces and expressions and voices. I’ll be able to put some of that in my head as read their blogs in the future. I’ve met a few bloggers before but never as a group so I’m game for another, didn’t get to chat with everyone very long but I’ll be reading their blogs to fill in some gaps. I need to get a few missing addresses still. I think Dave came the farthest (from Washington) and I was the second (from Michigan) and I think everyone else was within a few hours…

I got to chat with Jen and Ariana more as we were taking the same train and it was a bit of a walk to get there.

Sunday (today actually) I’m going to meet Dave and Jen to go to the museum (which one escapes me right now) but I probably should get to bed so I can do that. I need to get my stuff together too since I’ll be heading out of town from there.

I’ll have to check out the photos later and see how they came out.

    Oh, I guess that does have tequila in it…

    When I think tequila I generally think of shots :)

    Don’t forget – they were tequila mojitos as well! I’m just going to be one of many to gush about our evening and say that it was a total blast.

    I would never have guessed that this group would have gotten along so well, but that’s the beauty of it, isn’t it? So great meeting you, Gary! I’ll be stopping by. Come on over for a cuppa.

    The ‘tater ‘za rocked. Good choice, Dave!

    Now I’m disappointed that I didn’t have any of the mashed potato pizza. I love mixing it up when it comes to important debates like this.

    BTW, Gary, I’ll look forward to a more leisurely stroll through your site. I’m sure you have plenty to say about Egypt. I’m looking forward to it!

    I will confess that it was kinda cold when I tried it…

    Wow – who would’ve thought that a little potato pizza could’ve generated so much debate! It was definitely worth a try, but I was happy to switch back to the spinach/black olive – YUM!

    And yes, we all drank tequila, whether or not we intended to…
