    Tampa Meat-space Meet-up & Eat-up

    So, it occurred to me that while Capt Bluesman and I are in Tampa to visit Blueskid and his wife for a late Christmas (29 December through 5 January), it might be a really excellent idea to use it as an opportunity to gather the greatest of all WABbits together for a night of eating BBQ and drinking beer and listening to live music. Anybody interested? Florida guys, can you get a few consecutive hours to yourselves to come out to, say, Welcome to Skipper's Smokehouse! for a little fellowship and fun?

    Tophatter, this is aimed right between your eyes, man. Ain't seen you in far, far too long, and the Captain would really enjoy a look over our shoulders to the long-ago before-time, when we were young. You were a big part of those great days, and you and as many others as can make it should come out.

    I don't post on here much (at all, really) anymore, and that's for a lot of good reasons. But I have made a ton of great friends here, and rather than having them be 'virtual' forever, if there's one thing I really enjoy, it's meeting some of you in ReaLife. Give me a belated Christmas present: your handshake and the opportunity to buy you a brew at the coolest restaurant/bar/stage in Dixie.

    SOUND OFF, MAGGOTS!

    I just might be able to do that...waiting on hearing back from some possible weekend guests.
    If they cancel out on me, I think I can swing it!

    Okay, so I'm probably gonna end up missing out on this one as well, but I WILL be making it to the US next autumn-time, either as part of an organized Israel Advocacy scholarship or just by myself to visit friends and family.

    In either case, I'm gonna try and make some time to be meeting up with some folks from WAB. When we get closer to that time, I'll open a thread. And yes, I plan on hitting Vegas, so Blues and the missus are on the list.

    Sorry, but you missed your window, Hoss: we're outbound in May back to Misawa, Japan. Last time we were there was 18 years ago.

    If anybody wants me to show 'em the soft underbelly of this nest of vice and sin, you gotta be on the ground no later than April 20th. After that, we're going to be putting our stuff in the big box, and getting ready to flee from the properly constituted forces of Order.

    So, TAMPA, folks. That's what's happenin'. Y'all gotta make this.

    Staying with Blueskid and wife, with the daughters, too, so we'll be stepping all over each other. Best look for a place over by Busch Gardens, because we'll be hard-by that.

    And you gotta make this, if it's even possible. Won't be able to see you for YEARS, man.

    dalem, you got plans yet?

    Dammit.

    Well, carve out a couple days, man. Seems a shame to be a five-hour drive away, and never see each other. Come on out.

    Not going to be able to make it...can't believe that you guys are being stationed outside CONUS.
    I'm going to find your detailer and kick him in nuts until I get tired of it.

    gunnut,

    the man practically begged you the last time he was organizing Occupy Vegas.
