|Dave's 40.597th Birthday Party is TOMORROW
||[Apr. 28th, 2009|09:54 am]
This is a repost of my original announcement on Facebook, placed now in the open where non-Facebook friends can see it. (Sorry, Charles! Sorry, Charlie! Sorry, other friends whose names aren't as amusingly similar!). But I'm adding a few things here since I have a bit more room:|
* Yes, I really will be handing out cards to people who show up. It's fun for me. And I've found a way to do it pretty efficiently. You'll see.
* It "starts" at 5 because this "party" is really nothing more than me hanging out in a funky-cool bar while my friends come up and say hi...but there's a REALLY GREAT room that I want, and which gets filled up quickly, so I want to stake it out before other legitimate bargoers claim it for themselves and things get violent.
*To that end, I could use two or three volunteers to show up early and fill seats. I'll buy you drinks. Email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help and are free. I realize most of you have jobs, and I have lots of respect for that. *I also recognize that this may be crazy talk, and maybe we should just all show up later and crash the cool room more assertively once there's an actual mass of us. If no one's there by 6, I'll just chalk it up to learning not to plan this stuff by myself. In any event, I imagine the bulk of this thing occurring between 7 and 11 or so.
*Any and all guests are welcome--but you don't get a card unless I know you. Since I'm bad with faces (no offense; it's the ADD), I may require occasional prodding.

Never got to celebrate my big 40th birthday because I was busy writing a book, moving into my apartment, etc. But it's been a VERY big year, and it deserves celebration! So join me at the Cowgirl Hall of Fame next Wednesday for drinks and conversation! I'm dedicating the evening to thanking all the friends who have made my life in New York so wonderful, so if you come, I'm giving YOU a personally written card (as long as supplies last). WARNING! DON'T BRING CAKE! If you bring treats, Cowgirl Hall of Fame charges all of us $3 a head. This is just a nice evening drinking at one of the coolest places I know. I'll be hanging out in the cool part of the lounge--the area with the fake skylight.
