"Hangin' on to the good times" -- Little Feat

You know how in high school, you threw a party and suddenly all the coolest kids from your class were showing up at your house and you couldn't believe your good fortune because it turned into the best party ever? Yeah, me, neither.

Well, yesterday, I threw a little happy hour and the coolest kids in the blogosphere actually did show up! And I am still amazed.

I got to hang out with the wonderful people behind the following terrific blogs (in no particular order):

Urban Bohemian

Charlotte Harris
"It's Toasted" (the B half)
The Restaurant Refugee
Sean's Ramblings
A Daily Dose of Zen Sarcasm!
The Gilahi Blog
The Chronicles of Tewkesbury
Culinary Couture
Live it, Love it
Who Invented Roses
(That's Why) The Lady Is A Tramp

These are extraordinarily good people. Gracious, funny, interesting, and a good looking bunch! If you ever get the chance to meet them, do it!

To these fantastic pals: I had a great time and I thank all of you for showing up and shining so bright.

As Bill Withers once said at a concert at Carnegie Hall, "It was a sho-nuff shake em' on down" good time.

What no pictures? Or are you saving those for a "Very Special Holiday Post?"

I'm in Cincinnati now. Don't leave until I get there.

Katherine said...

Thanks for the great time and the introduction to those orange brandy drinks. My liver will never be the same.

Madame Meow said...

Thank you so much for arranging this! It was great to meet you and everyone!

I was with you all in Spirit!
Glad you all had fun. Cali next time?

J.M. Tewkesbury said...

I had the best time! It was great meeting everyone. I loved the range of topics we discussed, which were as diverse as the group assembled.

LA, thanks for organizing this and bringing us all together. Let's do it again. And soon!

Brett said...

so lovely to meet you!

Sean said...

Thanks again for organizing the terrific HH! It was great meeting everyone!

Fantastic to meet everyone. I am glad I got to show everyone what a classy lady I am by spilling wine all over JM... Sorry again about that JM!

J.M. Tewkesbury said...

Lemmonex: Like I said, I can handle spilled wine. Hurling, now that's a different story entirely. Launch your cookies all over me (or down the front of yourself) and that's pretty much a deal breaker for me. But spilled wine, meh. No harm, no foul! I still think you're classy.

(Besides, your little bit of wine was nothing compared to the pint of beer I was almost baptized in by some inattentive idiot who knocked the entire thing off the bar and on to me. Fortunately, I am attentive! And, I still have reflexes. Disaster averted!)
