Also we will MURDER THE SUN.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]

  1. Unfortunately, I will be taking off all my clothes and slipping into a northern lake at about that time this evening. The other sounds like fun, too, though.

  2. This makes me wish I was in Washington too. Ah well I will be getting drunk in the editors’ honor (at a preplanned, weekly quizzo game, but still).

  3. I’m in town, but if you ever saw what I look like–or listened to my non-stop smart-ass remarks, it would ruin the party. Have fun!

  4. Man, if my the conditions of my bail didn’t preclude my leaving the state of GA, I’d attend like the dickens. As things stand, I’ll have to get loaded locally. Cheers!

  5. I’ll hoist a beer in the eastern direction in salute to our brave Wonkettes. Why don’t you set up a live feed so we can watch (document for possible black mailing purposes) the festivities?

  6. As as marginally related PSA, I would suggest everyone make the whoopie pies from the official Marshmallow Fluff web site. Double the filling. Thank me later.

  7. I’m seriously thinking about going, although it’s courting death to make the two-hour drive in an un-air-conditioned car. My other plan was to stand in my yard under the sprinkler with a bottle of wine and a glass of chipped ice.

  8. I want to go, but what if I am the only girl there, and all the boys will sit at one table and talk about me – in Spanish – and point and snicker and won’t come sit at my table. That’s it Wonkette, I am canceling your party!

  9. [re=612881]SayItWithWookies[/re]: Either one sounds pretty good, actually. If you included a loaded gun int he second option, you could almost run for a Republican seat in the House.

  10. We tried to send you salmon for C’Addle, but they got pinched by the same TSAer who pinched Bibi’s Glocks. Neilist, Neilist, I knows your out there somewhere you TSA gun nutter!!

  11. PLEASE TELL ME THERE WILL BE VIDEO!!!!111!! We losers who don’t live in Washington have GOT to see that panel at least. Also, I’m intensely curious to hear what some of you sound like/see what some of you look like.

  12. You should probably add a list of winners with the disclaimer “Scheduled to appear” after each name. It’s not hard to see the Weagles growing into an Oscar-like (or maybe WHCA-like) event each year: tuxedos in a fancy hotel ballroom, losers looking elated when their names are not called, weepy acceptance speeches…

    Nah, better to keep it like it is/will be.

  13. SOME of you people need to show up. In the event I manage to get away from work early (doubtful) and haul my butt through 102 heat on the Metro, I want a good crowd. Come on, Wonketeers!

  14. Could you change the time so that it coincides with my 3:00 o’clock meeting on how we’ll defraud the American taxpayer with the socialism (i.e.budget)? If so, I’ll BE THERE!

  15. This is the saddest I’ve ever been to live and work in New York. No, really; it’s a pretty rockin’ city, and not a swamp filled with congressional staffers. Not being able to attend the Weagles is literally the worst thing about it, after i-bankers.

    I will, however, be there in spirit. By which I mean, I plan on getting shitfaced at home and yelling at someone about politics.

  16. [re=612881]SayItWithWookies[/re]: You forgot the DC rush hour traffic, mixed with sound of 2nd Amendment gunfire from just over the Virginia border.

  17. [re=612886]AnnieGetYourFun[/re]: Hey, I could run as a teabagger — I believe in the Constitution and think we should all learn more history, and am pretty fed up with the Democrats running the country. Hmmm…

  18. Okay, I’m going to drag my sweaty ass up there, dagnabbit. Pleeze have a boilermaker waiting for me. (I’ll be the tubby 40-something guy, not that that helps).

  19. [re=612915]AnnieGetYourFun[/re]: Then you probably don’t want to know that I will be taking a running dive off this particular dock about 9pm your time. Temperature is expeted to be in the high 70’s; water temperature a bracing 64 degrees.

    Maybe not as much fun as gulping down expensive liquor in a sweaty, noisy DC attic, but still.

  20. [re=612994]Lascauxcaveman[/re]: Looks suspiciously like Lake Crescent. Water 64°, for what, like the top foot, maybe, before you hit the thermocline?

  21. [re=612994]Lascauxcaveman[/re]: All I’ve got is a dirty river to swim in….why’d I click on your damn link? Was I hoping for porn? Probably. Well, it was pornography for those without air conditioning, anyway.

  22. To protect my secret identity, I will be wearing my Clark Kent glasses disguise.

    In truth, I shall not be in attendance at all, due to extreme lack of notice, and fear of what you guys are like in person.

  23. [re=613119]weejee[/re]: Yes, it is Lake Crescent; specifically at my mom’s house on the north shore. Also correct on the water temp. First thermocline is about a foot down where you lose about 5°, then you hit an INSANELY cold one at about 70 feet, if you’re scuba diving w/o a wetsuit, like we do here.

  24. We need a “this event is officially over” thread but something tells me, not till tomorrow AM.

    Sorry I couldn’t make it, I work a “late shift” and I am also somewhat wary of strangers that I might be intimately involved with… on the net…
