We’re On! “06880” Blog Party Is Tonight

Scattered thunderstorms are forecast for early this afternoon.

But the evening looks great. The temperature will start cooling off.

Which means: We’re on for our 9th annual “06880” blog party!

We’re still set for 6 p.m. at South Beach — the alcohol-is-fine-except-no-glass-bottles end, furthest from the cannons.

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

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

“06880” provides the rest: a chance to meet commenters and lurkers. Each year we welcome old-timers, 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’ll be just to the left of this jetty (near the boat and kayak launch). Without the car, though, (Photo/Linda Gramatky Smith)

    Sending you love from NJ, Dan. Next year Ken and I will drive out to Westport for the 06880 party. Ken just showed me that you used the photo from 6+ years ago where we were having dinner on South Beach and saw this crazy driver park on the jetty. It wasn’t us! Wish we could be there tonight to see the 06880ers. Love, Linda (Gramatky Smith)

    We never did get a thunderstorm here in Wallingford, and I trust the weather is good for the blog party. Have fun, everyone!

    I wish I could be there (again). I had a great time last year and the other years I attended. But I’m now living in Redding, and the drive home in the dark would be too risky. I’m sure it will be great, and I hope everyone has a wonderful time!
