Join a whole bunch of your Wonkette pals at 5:30 this evening for the 2010 Weeping Eagles! Consider this your Invitation, this blog post on the Internet. Eat delicious things! Drink cheap beverages! Win Wonkette T-shirts! Laugh at the buffoonery of your editor and other cretins including morning editor Josh “The Comics Curmudgeon” Fruhlinger, Wonkabout’s Arielle Fleisher, Wonkette videographer Liz Glover, your summer intern/artist Benjamin Frisch and former editors Juli Weiner (according to Facebook, anyway) and Capitol Hill typing monster Jim Newell. We have literally never had so many of us in the same place at the same time, for freedom!
Wonkette is taking over the upstairs lounge at Solly’s Tavern at 1942 11th St. NW at U Street, just a block east of Ben’s Chili Bowl and the U St./Cardozo station. The horror begins at 5:30 p.m. and will probably keep going until 9 o’clock or whenever, with the Awards Ceremony taking place at/around 6:30 p.m. WHO WILL WIN?????
Plus: A literary/political panel discussion with your editors, just like at Politics & Prose or whatever, but with more vulgarity and less substance. And “cocktailized soul food” and the “Whoopie Pies” from Whoops! Bake Shop. Okay that is all you get to know about it, the end. [Weeping Eagles 2010]
