From party-sparker Dog Mom:
Buffalo – Wednesday, April 4 at 5:30 at Founding Fathers, 75 Edward Street — (716) 855-8944
Probable / possible attendees:
Zamphuor and SO
Smedley the uncertain
Tazj – maybe
Geeno – maybe
Athenaze and spouse – iffy
Gelfling 545 – interested
One thing to be aware of with Founding Fathers… parking can be a problem. Might have to walk a bit.
Reports (in lieu of pics) from last week’s Rochester meet-up:
It was well attended by the interesting and intelligent front pagers, commenters and lurkers from the area. Not to say there are not other interesting and intelligent folks who were not in attendance. (That sentence just hurt my head.) Good conversation occurred – the group was comfortable enough to feel photographic evidence was unnecessary. Pictures of babies and pets were shared as well as favorite blog moments. Most if not all suggested we meet again. Thank you to John Cole for creating and keeping this place in the digital universe.
And from Central Planning:
The Rochester Meet-Up was great. I got there a little late because apparently I read 5:30 as 6:30.
There were about 11 of us. Both mistermix and DougJ were there, as well as a couple other nyms I remembered. A good time was had by all. Interesting discussion was all around the table.
We have no proof of life in pictures, but we will all submit our receipts. Will that count?…
Receipts not needed, but photos are always welcome. So are lurkers, significant others, insignificant others, and the vulgarly curious!
Barring the unforseen, I will attend.
OT but I would advise Donny Dollhands not to tweet something about something being “an embarrassment to the US”. The responses to his tweet are brutal.

How come there’s never a Dallas meet-up? I smell conspiracy.
I really wish I could make the meetup for I am a short ride on Rt.5 and over the Skyway into the city. Unfortunately Mr. A is ill with a bad bout of the flu. I wish all of you who do meetup the best of times.
Didn’t read all of the responses, but my favorite is the one that said “have a look at yourself you jumped up little Pillock”
Jumped-up little pillock. Just perfect.

@Gelfling 545: Me Too
Rochester Meet-Up veteran here:
Best Wishes for no snow in Buffalo for the meet up there, seriously.
And let’s find a new job for Dog Mom, one that doesn’t inhibit her party-planning role too seriously. The world of doing things on computers for a salary is missing an important asset without her.
Meanwhile, with the way the week has already gone, the Buffalonian Juicers will have plenty to discuss.
My comment about receipts was not for proof-of-life, but to get reimbursed by our lovely host, John. That’s a thing, right?
I get my weekly checks from George Soros, Warren Buffet, and Jeff Bezos. The least thing John could do is pay for drinks.

I thought George Soros paid up when the receipts were provided?? What the hell? More fake Fake News!
@Central Planning: Ha! That cheap bastid won’t even reimburse my various on-line news subscriptions, which I only pay for so I can do the hard job of posting here… *
(* notintendedtobeafactualstatement, of course)
@HRA: I hope that we can try again when you will have a healthier Mr. A.
I hope to be at this buffalo meetup maybe around 6pm – not sure how long it will take me to get there and find parking.
@Nancy: Thanks for the support. Yes, I definitely need a job that doesn’t crimp my work life balance – must have quality puppy time and be available for the occasional party spark. Maybe that Soros guy has something for me.
@The Midnight Lurker: Let Buffalo be your inspiration . . .
Looking forward to the Buffalo meetup, 5:30 if all goes as planned
Hoping for no uncertainty and nothing unforeseen, I warned the fine folks at Founding Fathers – they said grab a large round table in the back and a server named Conner will attend to out needs – that would be food and drink. See you there.
Planning on getting in a little after 6
I hate to be a party pooper. but this wind and crazy weather is a bit too intense. Between the state of emergency declared in Monroe county, the multiple flipped tractor trailers and the power outages, I am just not feeling like I should take chances on the drive tonight. I hope that you enjoy yourselves and we can plan another meet-up. Stay safe.
Sorry we won’t see you dogmom, there are 5 of us here so far. Good conversation & company, hope you can make it catpal
Will post proof of life later…
Fun time! Good conversation. Nice putting faces to names. We also managed to convince a Republican to come over to the good side
Glad a good time was had – hopefully we can try for a rerun. Good Work – you will have to tell us the secret to conversion.
Well, one photo is worth a 1000 words. Hopefully that photo will be posted in the next day or two.
Anne Laurie will hopefully be posting the photos soon…
