Fingers Crossed For Tonight’s Blog Party

Thunderstorms are forecast for today and tonight. Hey — we’ve got our 7th annual “06880” blog party, starting at 6 p.m.!

We’re still set for South Beach — the alcohol-is-fine-except-no-glass-bottles end, furthest from the cannons. Unless, of course, there’s rain and lightning then.

If it rains earlier, we’ll clear off the tables and benches. (If you’ve got an extra folding table, please bring one!) If it rains during the event, we’ll open umbrellas – or scatter.

This is a bring-your-own-food-and-beverages event. If you’d like to bring something extra to share, feel free!

We provide the “06880” community — a chance to meet commenters and lurkers. Each year there are oldtimers, newcomers, politicians and normal human beings. It’s a chance to talk, laugh and trade stories about this wild, wacky and only slightly dysfunctional town we share and love.

See you tonight!

We hope.

We’ll be just to the left of this jetty (near the boat and kayak launch). Without the car, though. And probably without the blue skies. (Photo/Linda Gramatky Smith)

  1. “Scattered thunderstorms” are LOL. Hit or miss. If it really pours we can all seek shelter in the new bathrooms, right? Looking forward.

  2. Sorry can not make it this year … nothing to do with weather !

    Good luck with the weather tonight. Have a great party.

    Marianne and I will lift a glass in salute to “06880”—from one of our favorite Chapel Hill watering holes…it’s NOT The Duck, nor The Arrow but, it does remind as a bit of Mario’s.

    Best to all the 06880 “family.”

    At first glance, I thought this was one of your entitled-and-illegal parking posts. I hope the Blog party is perfect; wish I could be there!
