Important Wonkette Party Announcement, About Parties And Your Wonkette

by Rebecca Schoenkopf

Whip it good.

The Wonkette Drinky Meetup Salons begin with a party one week from today in Los Angeles, California. (Next up will be Detroit in early June. You excited, Detroit? When’s the last time someone came to see you? Long time, right? Here, let us wipe your tears and hand you a xanax.) All comers are welcome, and the first 10 pitchers (for everyone, not each, don’t be greedy) are on us. So please join Kirsten Boyd Johnson, Sara Benincasa, and me, your Editrix, for so much fried food (also we will buy you some fried food) and nonsense. Details on the other side.

Where will you be joining us? At Busby’s East, the charming sports bar over that Mexican joint, just a block and a half or so west of LaBrea, on Wilshire. Need an address? Lucky for you, you are on a computer!

When will you be joining us? Thursday, May 10. Time? Early, because don’t know if you’ve noticed, but your Editrix works on East Coast time for you, her beloved Wonkers, and also she is old. So we will say from 6:30 to 9:30, like that.

Why will you be joining us? Did we not already say free beer? Free beer.

So RSVP in the comments below or we will think no one is coming to our party, and we will be sad. Never registered? Do so now!

WE SAID, DO SO NOW.

Important Update! People are going to drive to Detroit from OHIO, y’all. If you can’t make it to mid-city LA from the Westside, then Westsiders will be universally acknowledged to be whiny-ass tittybabies henceforth and evermore.

Till Thursday, we remain, yours etc., etc.,

Rebecca Schoenkopf

Anyone coming to Maine?

Steverino247 May 3, 2012 at 7:12 pm

I'll be there on 6/29/12, if that helps you. Spending the night and then heading west.

Lionel[redacted]Esq May 3, 2012 at 7:21 pm

Spent three years there in the late 80s. Until I get a hankering for lobster, don't see a reason.

Jukesgrrl May 3, 2012 at 7:53 pm

I thought Jessica Fletcher killed everyone there.

flamingpdog May 3, 2012 at 8:08 pm

Why do think the show finally went off the air?

Jukesgrrl May 3, 2012 at 8:21 pm

Too many of the viewers went to their reward.

Dudleydidwrong May 3, 2012 at 9:45 pm

Ayuh, latah in June. By gawd gotta get me some lobstah–finest kind.

DWW May 3, 2012 at 10:40 pm

Or Dunedin, New Zealand?

Dashboard Buddha May 3, 2012 at 11:50 pm

Oooh…I'd like to go to New Zealand, however…NZ All Blacks – yay!Wetas – boo!—

DWW May 4, 2012 at 5:26 am

I'm trying to imagine the Haka welcome…it would be kinda awesome!

WunkRocker May 4, 2012 at 8:33 am

Ah come one, who is up for renting out the WunkHouse for the DNC in Car Lot NC? Most of the plumbing works and is indoors.

Barb May 3, 2012 at 6:01 pm

It's not really my news to announce…..
The par-tay will end up in New Mexico eventually and I will be there. Yes, I am serious.
Stay tuned for further announcements.

Jeff said that when he meets Becca, he's going to kiss her like a mule chewing an apple.

Chet Kincaid May 3, 2012 at 6:38 pm

It's going to be that kind of party?

Barb May 3, 2012 at 6:41 pm

Nah, we'll probably head to one of Jeff's 3 casinos and wind up getting arrested. Can we count on you for bail money, please?

flamingpdog May 3, 2012 at 8:49 pm

Just ask your parents for $20 k for the bail. Doesn't every family have 20K to give the kids?

Barb May 3, 2012 at 9:25 pm

Only in Mitt Romney's world do parents have extra money to give to the kids.

smokefilledroommate May 3, 2012 at 6:41 pm

Will it cross through AZ? Or will the festivities go north or south to avoid it?

Barb May 3, 2012 at 6:43 pm

Where in Arizona? I'll come get you and you can stay with me at my house.

smokefilledroommate May 3, 2012 at 6:45 pm

SW Phoenix

Lascauxcaveman May 3, 2012 at 9:26 pm

You poor thing you.

Jukesgrrl May 3, 2012 at 8:05 pm

How long does it take to drive there from Tucson? You know I have to watch my mum, but I could bring her. She likes to gamble so she could sit in front of a slot machine as well as a TV.

Barb May 3, 2012 at 8:23 pm

7 hours-ish from Tucson. I would be so honored and completely thrilled to me you, Jukes.

flamingpdog May 3, 2012 at 8:09 pm

Have you ever seen the tongue on a mule? Now I know why you're so madly in love with the Jeffer.

Barb May 3, 2012 at 8:23 pm

Come to the party in New Mexico and you will see exactly why I am so in love with the Jeffer.

Fare la Volpe May 3, 2012 at 8:44 pm

Clothing optional party, eh?

Barb May 3, 2012 at 9:28 pm

Lol, Fare. Jeff does look good all nakkie and stuff. He's just really good looking. Remember how we met? I saw him in an airport, he walked up to me, I told him I love him and we kissed.

I can feel my cheeks flushing.

Dammit Barb! You are one cat I would like to meet.

HalluxValgus May 3, 2012 at 6:03 pm

I'm bringing a life sized cardboard cutout of Newell

Chill-A-Sketch May 3, 2012 at 6:04 pm

I'd ask you to come to Texas next but I know you know better.

anniegetyerfun May 3, 2012 at 6:38 pm

They could take an ironice trip.

HistoriCat May 3, 2012 at 7:45 pm

They could come to Texas and probably start a giant cat fight over where in Texas they should go.

BaldarTFlagass May 4, 2012 at 8:19 am

I'd go with Austin over, say, Jasper or Vidor.

HistoriCat May 4, 2012 at 8:48 am

Yeah, why does Austin get everything? Austin, Austin, Austin!

BaldarTFlagass May 4, 2012 at 9:04 am

Well, I didn't want to be a homer and go all San Antonio on y'all. And Austin is on my mind because I'll be checking out Tom Petty & HBs at the Frank tomorrow night. Fucking national treasure and all that.

Jus_Wonderin May 4, 2012 at 10:06 am

Yes, bring a party here (Dallas) I want to meet ya'll.

weejee May 3, 2012 at 6:05 pm

Can the Northern Pod send you some Seattle showers?

nounverb911 May 3, 2012 at 6:47 pm

I'll be there with you.

emmelemm May 3, 2012 at 9:58 pm

I'm kinda grumpy, because I'm actually going to BE in L.A. for a couple of days right before Memorial Day. Missed it by *that* much.

And now, if you'll excuse me, I have to take my dog for a walk. In the rain. In Seattle.

gullywompr May 3, 2012 at 6:05 pm

Not bad for a mommy blog.

Radiotherapy May 3, 2012 at 6:07 pm

Spank me, spank me, spank me.

Mumbletypeg May 3, 2012 at 6:10 pm

Here's sangria in your eye! *splash*

EtchySketchy May 3, 2012 at 6:07 pm

Is Mitt bringing pizzas?

smokefilledroommate May 3, 2012 at 6:51 pm

He'll be packing the fudge. (That was a Rmoney reference just to be clear).

Dudleydidwrong May 3, 2012 at 9:48 pm

Herman's bringing the pizzas. His are so shitty we gave him the wrong address.

Designer_Rants May 3, 2012 at 11:16 pm

He's counting on the Wonkette Voting Bloc. Anything to garner our vote.

Not_So_Much May 3, 2012 at 6:07 pm

Waaaaaahhhh!

Fuck you current Red State address! Fuck you with a red hot poker!

Chick-Fil-Atheist™ May 3, 2012 at 6:30 pm

Dude, if you don't vote for you, no one else will.

bobloblawlawblg May 3, 2012 at 6:09 pm

i'll be coming. shit, i'm coming right now thinking about free beer and fried food.

smokefilledroommate May 4, 2012 at 5:42 am

Gotta say Bob Loblaw is one of the best character names ever devised. (and the Law Blog just adds to it).

Goonemeritus May 3, 2012 at 6:10 pm

If you show up in Detroit wearing that cat suit you will definitely need that whip.

Designer_Rants May 3, 2012 at 11:17 pm

RoboCop will protect her. Or tell her to "Stay out of… trouble".

memzilla May 3, 2012 at 6:10 pm

Take Old Route 66 to the "symposium", the signs are great!

- Wonkette snarkers –
- Sped by here –
- 'Cuz Commiegirl was –
- Buying the beer! –

– Burma Shave –

Jukesgrrl May 3, 2012 at 8:24 pm

Bravo!

Radiotherapy May 3, 2012 at 6:10 pm

II am such an old POS now, I remember when this was the "DC" gossip blog.
But srsly, we went to the Wonkette Halloween party at The Hunt Club some two years ago and I can assure that you will meet the most interesting, handsome people. And the buttsechs was to die for….

Mumbletypeg May 3, 2012 at 6:14 pm

Heh… so nowadays, East Coast frivolity amongst fellow wonketteers is not a 'right' but a privilege.
And I must've gotten there too late for the high-octane antics you refer to — were any of the costume winners wearing catsuits?

Radiotherapy May 3, 2012 at 6:28 pm

There was a time when the two Riley's were not in my line of site….just sayin'.
Yeah, and fuck these West Coast elites, with their electronic cigarettes and Sonoma syrup. The East Will Rise Again. How about in the ol' rebel Capital of Richmond?

flamingpdog May 3, 2012 at 6:38 pm

Or Montgomery, Alabama, where Richmond Flowers.

Butch_Wagstaff May 3, 2012 at 11:00 pm

You rang?

Stuffing our faces & gettin' drunk down in Shockoe Bottom then takin' a trip to western Henrico county & stopping to take pisses at the statues of the heroes of the Confederacy on Monument Avenue along the way.

Sounds good to me. Maybe we could thrown in mooning McDonnell.

Mumbletypeg May 4, 2012 at 9:15 am

I like how you think.

Lionel[redacted]Esq May 3, 2012 at 7:23 pm

And the buttsechs was to die for….

That is why you should always wear a condom.

FlownOver May 3, 2012 at 6:10 pm

There's a single blue island in Baja Nebraska. Not hard to find. You'd be welcome here.

hagajim May 3, 2012 at 6:12 pm

The Wonkette is likely always welcome in the western part of Oregon. Stay away from the east side though – a bit too red for the Wonkette, and they have gunz.

weejee May 3, 2012 at 7:55 pm

We could do a tour of the Conde McCullough Bridges along the coast.

http://www.oregon.gov/ODOT/HWY/GEOENVIRONMENTAL/d

Z Crudmonger May 4, 2012 at 1:36 am

Oh, we have gunz here on the westslope of the Cascades, too. Oregon is very gunny, something about "go west, young man, and kill stuff."

Limeylizzie May 3, 2012 at 6:14 pm

I have to decline, it is not my month to fly my vagina across the Rockies to MrLimeyLizzie.

Nostrildamus May 3, 2012 at 7:01 pm

The male must go through!!

Steverino247 May 3, 2012 at 7:14 pm

Interesting anatomy you've got there, LL.

Limeylizzie May 3, 2012 at 7:18 pm

I'm attached, physically, to the aforementioned vagina.

Steverino247 May 3, 2012 at 7:30 pm

What was that rock song by The Knack?

Do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do.

My vagina!

Fare la Volpe May 3, 2012 at 7:50 pm

Imagine if you weren't. You could be having sex with Mr. LL RIGHT NOW.

starfanglednut May 4, 2012 at 1:19 pm

Just put it in the mail!

PuckStopsHere May 3, 2012 at 7:50 pm

Screw the Rockies. Bring those Grand Tetons of yours to Detroit in June!

Lascauxcaveman May 3, 2012 at 9:35 pm

You and your spouse only see each other every TWO MONTHS?

(Sounds like just about the perfect marriage. Just enough time for sex, not enough time for fighting.)

Limeylizzie May 3, 2012 at 10:59 pm

It varies, if i am working he comes here and if he is on location I go wherever that may be, he was doing a TV pilot in Chicago last year so we spent 4months together, so it all depends but we made a pact that if we spend more than 8 weeks apart we each have carte blanche to cheat! So, we NEVER spend more than 8 weeks apart.

el_donaldo May 3, 2012 at 6:14 pm

I would come to meet you if you came to Philadelphia. Or Trenton, if you're going to make me buy my beer. If it's not free I'm not friggin driving to Philly.

OneYieldRegular May 3, 2012 at 6:17 pm

If it's still going strong on Saturday morning, please post something. I won't be able to drive down there until then.

BigSkullF*ckingDog May 3, 2012 at 6:18 pm

Seattle Seattle Seattle seattle Seattle Seattle Seattle Seattle Seattle Seattle Seattle Seattle

Btw: I have access to free beer.

Seattle Seattle Seattle Seattle Seattle Seattle Seattle Seattle Seattle Seattle Seattle Seattle Seattle Seattle.

weejee May 3, 2012 at 6:27 pm

If not Seattle how about Lascauxcaveman's hotel in Port An-guh-leeze? Couple of keys extra.

Chick-Fil-Atheist™ May 3, 2012 at 6:29 pm

Y'know, that's what we should do. Have the Wonkette Snarconvention™ at his place during the off-season.

starfanglednut May 3, 2012 at 6:47 pm

omg, that sounds soooo great.

Lascauxcaveman May 3, 2012 at 10:45 pm

Guys, guess what? It's still the off-season. Very special rates for professed Wonketeers and there is a microbrewery tasting room a 30 second crawl from our front door. Also a tiny brewpub three blocks up the street for those ambitious folks who want to go exploring.

I'm on all next weekend, so I can be your drinking tourguide while getting paid to do it.. This should happen.

(But if you show up *this* weekend, I'm gonna make you go on a bike ride with me.)

Fairtackle May 3, 2012 at 7:06 pm

Surfing in the morning and boozey snarkfest in the evening kinda sounds like fun.

bagofmice May 3, 2012 at 6:27 pm

Here Here!

nounverb911 May 3, 2012 at 6:49 pm

Bellevue? (WA not the hospital).

savethispatient May 3, 2012 at 7:06 pm

Add my name to that list. I've not met any Wonketteers since Nov '08 in the Lava Lounge. We drank Wonkettinis with AnnieGetYerFun and KevoTron.

KevoTron May 4, 2012 at 12:43 am

Those were good times!

Extemporanus May 4, 2012 at 4:28 am

You know what else were good times, you Skittles & hearts-sharting year-old milk carton cartoon cameo of a magically mono-horny highly missed commenter, you?

(It's fucking KevoTron, you guys! Fucking KevoTron!!)

Lionel[redacted]Esq May 4, 2012 at 4:35 pm

A day at Wonkette with KevoTron is a day to be celebrated

Lionel[redacted]Esq May 4, 2012 at 4:39 pm

It's been nearly a year since you last posted, KevoTron. Nice to know you are still around.

Lionel[redacted]Esq May 3, 2012 at 7:26 pm

Given that a majority of Wonketters apparently live in Washington, and not DC, it would make sense. Heck, hold it down in Olympia and you can get the Portland crowd to join in. I would volunteer Tacoma, but I'm sure it is to difficult to fly in with bullet proof vests now days.

Doktor StrangeZoom May 3, 2012 at 7:32 pm

If there's ever a Seattle meetup, I will drive in from Boise.

Maybe.

BigSkullF*ckingDog May 3, 2012 at 7:56 pm

Yes

trampndirtdown May 3, 2012 at 9:26 pm

CD'A can make it.

Not_So_Much May 4, 2012 at 12:39 am

I'm just glad to know there is another wonker in the state. The total demand for Idaho just *doubled* bitches!

a_pink_poodle May 3, 2012 at 7:59 pm

Let's Wonk it up in Seattle!

BigSkullF*ckingDog May 3, 2012 at 8:04 pm

Don't mind us Editrix. We're just gonna plan our own meeting up here in the rain. Maybe we'll invite you. :)

weejee May 3, 2012 at 8:16 pm

We have beer right under our office in the seedy CD. Although I'll be out at the Latona just off of Green Lake this evening. emmelemm lives up that way somewhere about the Betty Page house. The Latona has a good assortment of beer, wine, & cocktails, good pub grub, and could likely reserve the upstairs.

emmelemm May 3, 2012 at 10:19 pm

I am up that way! Unfortunately, I have to work like 24/7 for the next couple of weeks, so I can go on a short vacation over Memorial Day.

Seattle meet-up in June! {crosses fingers}

Doktor StrangeZoom May 4, 2012 at 12:18 am

This "june" thing sounds promising…for those of us in the hinterlands of the PNW, a bit of planning may be needed.

commiegirl May 3, 2012 at 8:19 pm

Do as you will, BSFD! An invite would be mighty nice.

emmelemm May 3, 2012 at 9:59 pm

Yes. YES! YES!!!

savethispatient May 7, 2012 at 6:47 pm

I'm sure I wrote this the other day… but I don't see it, so anyway:
By starting this thread, I'm afraid you've volunteered to organize. :)
Also, free beer?

MuslinMosk May 3, 2012 at 6:18 pm

Aww, no way I could make it in time with traffic after work's over.

Wanna change it to Busby's West instead?

commiegirl May 3, 2012 at 6:21 pm

Nope. Busby's east is one mile from my house, and I shall be hoofing it drunkenly home. You can't get there by nine-thirty? You working the swing shift these days?

MuslinMosk May 3, 2012 at 6:24 pm

I could get there by 9:30, but then all the free beer will be gone and WHAT IS EVEN THE POINT RIGHT?!? (Also I am really lazy and hate driving in rush hour.)

Fare la Volpe May 4, 2012 at 4:55 am

9:30 is rush hour in L.A.?

commiegirl May 4, 2012 at 9:32 am

Sometimes.

Boojum May 3, 2012 at 7:49 pm

Will you put me on a pretend retainer, so that I can pretend it is a business expense? Because I'm a GREAT pretend lawyer!

SayItWithWookies May 3, 2012 at 6:19 pm

Poor Los Angeles — they'll miss having me on a hellbent-for-leather drunk — but if our Wonkette comes to DC (or better yet, the liberal bastion of the south, Richmond, VA), I will be there.

Mumbletypeg May 3, 2012 at 6:46 pm

Radio has suggested above that the heartland-of-the-Confederacy serve as the site for a future meetup. And to be there with belles on.

SayItWithWookies May 3, 2012 at 8:46 pm

I'd be up for that — there'd be no need to fly home, which I hear is bad for hangovers.

whiterabid May 3, 2012 at 6:19 pm

Darn. I was in LA two weeks ago, and I went to Palermo on Vermont every night. Why don't you schedule a stop in Boulder or Denver, home of the biggest 4/20 in the country?

Limeylizzie May 3, 2012 at 6:21 pm

Palermo is about 3 minutes from our house! You should have swung by.

whiterabid May 3, 2012 at 6:28 pm

I used to live on Dracena 15 years ago. Small world, big city. BTW, am I wrong, or is the Brown Derby now a Chase Bank?

qwerty42 May 3, 2012 at 6:19 pm

Well, darn, wrong side of the country. But hope all the Wonkette-folk have a good time. Here's a cheerfull tune on LA.

Extemporanus May 3, 2012 at 6:20 pm

If I start drinking now, I think I can make it.

Chick-Fil-Atheist™ May 3, 2012 at 6:20 pm

You would be surprised how many Tennesseans say "NASHVILLE! NASHVILLE! NASHVILLE!" right about now. Bosco's. Cool Springs. SRSLY.

deit: Also, fuck Atlanta… unless I'm not supposed to say that.

qwerty42 May 3, 2012 at 6:35 pm

Well, unless you are flying. Then you kinda have to go there.

Chick-Fil-Atheist™ May 3, 2012 at 6:43 pm

…before Hartsfield bounces you up to Nashville, anyway. It's a Southwest Hub too. No Dick Branson in them ice cubes!

Not_So_Much May 4, 2012 at 12:40 am

No, everybody should say 'fuck Atlanta' at least once a day. You're good.

Nothingisamiss May 4, 2012 at 10:14 am

We in Atlanta are already fucked.

But I'd drive to an adjoining red state, maybe. Aren't we disallowed from saying "gay" anywhere up there, though? Unless it's like, "That's so gay," and it's said by a school administrator to a little kid who's crying.

bumfug May 3, 2012 at 6:21 pm

Damn, that's a whole two miles from my place but sure, I'll be there.

MissTaken May 3, 2012 at 6:21 pm

*This* is why we need high speed rail from SF to LA.

Gleem McShineys May 3, 2012 at 8:19 pm

BUILD THE DANG TRAIN

Fukui-sanYesOta May 3, 2012 at 8:22 pm

Word. The pisser is that I'm in LA at the end of the month. Gah.

commiegirl May 3, 2012 at 8:28 pm

We will get up there soon, Miss. Maybe we'll even get up there before Detroit. (Which is probably June 8.) If you haven't all WORN ME OUT by then with your constant demands!

Fukui-sanYesOta May 3, 2012 at 9:03 pm

WOOHOO!

As Anthony Bourdain puts it: "SF is a two-fisted drinking town"

glasspusher May 3, 2012 at 11:40 pm

Yo, SF Bay Wonketeers unite! I'll ask Jerry Brown to crash!

commiegirl May 4, 2012 at 4:49 pm

Tell him my mama was the lady in The War Room chanting "Let Jerry Speak." He'll remember.

glasspusher May 4, 2012 at 6:24 pm

The only time I talked to him directly was a couple of years ago, I was changing the oil in my car and he was jogging by. He started talking to a guy he knew who was driving by and stopped, and I said "Jerry, get out of the road, if you get killed I can't vote for you" and he replied "Nah, they ain't gonna hit me!"

George Spelvin May 4, 2012 at 2:23 am

Now yer talkin'

Gleem McShineys May 4, 2012 at 2:35 pm

Hoorah! I am RSVPeeing all over this!

Limeylizzie May 3, 2012 at 6:22 pm

Maybe the East Coast Gang could hook up in NYC, sometime?

commiegirl May 3, 2012 at 6:24 pm

I am thinking DC or NYC in between the conventions, since we will be on that godforsaken side of the country.

SorosBot May 3, 2012 at 6:30 pm

*sigh*. Philly always get ignored.; New York and Washington get all tghe attention, we might as well not exist.

bagofmice May 3, 2012 at 7:07 pm

Chinatown bus yo. Some even have wifi.

Mumbly_Joe May 3, 2012 at 7:25 pm

Not the Chinatown buses per se; they only have chatty alcoholics and dangerous drivers who don't know the region terribly well.

Bolt and Mega have wifi, and can be almost as cheap, but you have to book forever in advance, and honestly, if I actually wanted to schedule a departure and arrival time for something, I might as well just shell out the money for Amtrak, and not end up spending 3-5 hours feeling like a veal calf. With wifi.

Limeylizzie May 3, 2012 at 6:33 pm

Oh Good, you know I would come to the LA one if I were there.

BelleSC May 3, 2012 at 6:40 pm

Charlotte maybe? I heard there's some kind of Democrat thing going on there.

commiegirl May 3, 2012 at 6:44 pm

Yes we will do Charlotte and Tampa. (By the way, can you put up me and Newell?)

qwerty42 May 3, 2012 at 6:53 pm

I seem to recall that Charlotte has a kind of pretty downtown, and maybe a streetcar line or two. Also a huge fortress-like county jail. Kind of an Orthanc. Well, it was night and we were walking to the hotel. Oh yeah, there are a bunch of banks there.

Boojum May 3, 2012 at 7:48 pm

Will you put me on a pretend retainer, so that I can pretend it is a business expense? Because I'm a GREAT pretend lawyer!

And Atlanta!

flamingpdog May 3, 2012 at 8:18 pm

Waitaminute, are you and Newell an item???

BelleSC May 4, 2012 at 6:00 am

Lemme check on some travel dates. Keep in mind I am about 80 miles away.

Mumbly_Joe May 3, 2012 at 6:52 pm

That is super-awesome, I've been pining for a New York Wonkdrinkymeet thing, ever since I happened to be in DC at the same time as one, a while back.

starfanglednut May 4, 2012 at 1:23 pm

I would definitely go to that. Bus from Boston is $20. How do we go about planning it?

Millennial Malaise May 3, 2012 at 8:09 pm

Oh my gawd! NYC or DC, I live in the former and I was raised in the latter. Bolt Bus will be my bitch if necessary.

Jukesgrrl May 3, 2012 at 8:28 pm

That's the spirit! Not like those Philly whiners.

Mumbly_Joe May 3, 2012 at 11:30 pm

Hey! If you lived in Philly, you'd whine about it, too.

starfanglednut May 3, 2012 at 6:48 pm

I would be so up for that. Anybody wants to start planning, I'm in.

Beowoof May 3, 2012 at 6:59 pm

DC or NYC would be cool, particularly between conventions.

Steverino247 May 3, 2012 at 7:17 pm

Driving through NYC on 7/6/12. Trying to get the wife to go see Roger Waters at Yankee Stadium that night, but fat chance, probably.

102415 May 12, 2012 at 1:51 am

I would love to see you all in NYC. East village. Not on a Friday.

Tundra Grifter May 3, 2012 at 6:22 pm

The first 10 pitchers are on you? I do believe that pretty much makes y'all the catchers, doesn't it?

PS: After Detroit how about San Francisco? Everybody loves San Francisco. Well, except for George Bush (43), of course. But that's a good thing. Right?

MissTaken May 3, 2012 at 6:26 pm

I second SF!

starfanglednut May 3, 2012 at 7:01 pm

Great city.

CountryClubJihadi May 3, 2012 at 8:36 pm

Me, three.
And I would be honored to host a proper cocktail party in Silicon Valley.

glasspusher May 3, 2012 at 11:44 pm

I can see it from my bedroom window- 9 miles as the crow flies. Me and Ms glasspusher are in! She works there anyway…(SF, that is)

Gleem McShineys May 4, 2012 at 2:34 pm

Fourth'd!

Schmannnity May 3, 2012 at 6:24 pm

Just putting it out there: Miami June to November is Hurricane and Palmetto Bug Season, two excuses for a party.

dewan_gibson May 3, 2012 at 6:24 pm

I'll be there. Riding in style on the Greyhound from San Diego. Hope there's space to store my luggage, which will be carried in a plastic garbage bag.

Amoriahs May 3, 2012 at 6:28 pm

I am so in! See everyone next week!

flamingpdog May 3, 2012 at 6:33 pm

Benincasa stood me up in Denver in March, Commie Girl. Bring her to Denver with you if and when you can ever make it to the Queen City. It ain't called the Queen City for nothin'.

Maman May 3, 2012 at 6:55 pm

Oddly enough, Buffalo is the Queen City as well

flamingpdog May 3, 2012 at 8:20 pm

I spent four years in Williamsburg, VA, and I thought IT was the Queen City. Or, at least on campus it was.

BelleSC May 4, 2012 at 6:05 am

Whaddaya know….Charlotte's the Queen City too.

From Wiki: "Nicknamed the Queen City, Charlotte and its resident county are named in honor of Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz, who had become queen consort of British King George III the year before the city's founding."

SaraJBenincasa May 4, 2012 at 5:45 pm

I am the worst!

flamingpdog May 5, 2012 at 2:25 am

Awwww, now I haz the sadz, sweet Sara!

Pres.Beeblebrox May 3, 2012 at 6:34 pm

I so wish I could be there. Please come to Delaware sometime so we can have a tour of Famous Delaware Sites like Joe Biden's house (with the outbuildings he rents to the Seekrit Service), Joe Biden's Amtrak station, Christine O'Donnell's apartment/Campaign Nerve Centre, the Punkin' Chunkin', and the World's Largest Frying Pan.

Mumbly_Joe May 3, 2012 at 6:50 pm

A teacher friend of mine teaches at Joe Biden's prep school; I love how virtually everything notable about Delaware can be prefaced with "Joe Biden's [...]"

finallyhappy May 4, 2012 at 7:17 am

The World's Largest Frying Pan- do you mean 95 and 40 and 13 when traffic is totally fucked in the summer? What about real Delaware highlights like the WAWA in Glasgow?

coolhandnuke May 3, 2012 at 6:34 pm

Will Julie Newmar be there?

Barb May 3, 2012 at 6:37 pm

Thanks to Wong Foo, yes.

flamingpdog May 3, 2012 at 6:46 pm

I like older women, but Julie ain't all that far behind Betty White. I saw her about 10 years ago at a comics, old toys, etc. convention, and I think she spent a little too much time in the sun in her younger days.

RavenRant May 3, 2012 at 6:36 pm

I'm in. The rest of you will have to share one pitcher.

ingloriousbytch May 3, 2012 at 6:36 pm

You guys have got to come to Ohio one of these days. Come on! We're a swing state!

ThundercatHo May 3, 2012 at 7:02 pm

Can you come to Detroit?

Callyson May 3, 2012 at 6:36 pm

SHIT.

I have an exam and can't.

Maybe I'll see if I can take the test on Wednesday…

SheriffRoscoe May 3, 2012 at 8:02 pm

Apply for an absentee test!

Callyson May 4, 2012 at 1:42 am

Looks like that exam will not take the whole three hours, so I will be there late, but I will be there. Yes!

flamingpdog May 3, 2012 at 8:22 pm

Is one of your grandmothers still alive? Is she available to "die" that day?

Callyson May 4, 2012 at 1:41 am

Update! Looks like the exam is not going to take the whole three hours, so I will be there on the late side. Yay!

Redgyal May 3, 2012 at 6:38 pm

Ven a Tejas porfavor!

smokefilledroommate May 3, 2012 at 6:38 pm

Stuck in Crazyzona. Oh wellz. Shit on a cactus.

Wonderthing May 3, 2012 at 6:40 pm

Wah. If I still lived in Silverlake I would slum on over. But I don't, can't, and will sit home bitter and alienated with my Robitussin and tonic. Waaaaah. Have fun y'all!

Guppy May 3, 2012 at 6:40 pm

Detroit? Will there be a dramatic reading of Kwame Kilpatrick's cell phone?

Jukesgrrl May 3, 2012 at 7:59 pm

I vote for that to go on some kind of conference call. Get Limey Lizzie on it. She can audition Wonkers who want to play Kwame (this is a job for you, Negropolis!). If there are any royally pissed off messages from a wronged woman, I'd like to try out to read those.

rickmaci May 3, 2012 at 6:43 pm

In. I'll put off my Cinco Leprechauno fiesta for a few days.

RadioRehab May 3, 2012 at 6:43 pm

OK, Wonkette get together etiquette question: Do you divulge your screen names?

Mumbly_Joe May 3, 2012 at 6:48 pm

I think I remember this being a contentious issue at a DC meet a while back, right around the Daily Show rally; I don't remember what the popular consensus was, but a friend of mine who came with me got a particular glee out of introducing me as my internet name, because of an embarrassing episode from our college years.

Mumbletypeg May 3, 2012 at 6:54 pm

Refresh my memory, fellow mumbler. It is surely a more worthwhile story than how I got my handle. I don't remember if you shared its origins then or not.

bagofmice May 3, 2012 at 7:14 pm

In my ideal world, I would guess that you got your name forgetting the j in jpeg, and pulled an Army of Darkness move.

Boojum May 3, 2012 at 7:50 pm

Mumbletypeg is a knife game, so be nice. :-)

Mumbly_Joe May 3, 2012 at 7:18 pm

Oh, I'm pretty sure the story itself remained undivulged, but it more interesting the origins per se of my handle as well (which is simply, a Simpsons reference that suits my inarticulate nature).

Anyway, sigh, the short version is, I met a charming, and moreover, extremely assertive young lady at a campus shindig, and ended up retiring to a nearby computer science seminar room, which was unoccupied, but lacking doors, was still semi-public. Subsequently, we chatted, and I mentioned in passing something I might have blogged about just recently, upon which this lady exclaimed, "Oh my God, you're Mumbly_Joe!". She then apparently recounted this entire story in graphic detail on the Internet, which is how my friend found out.

Honestly, my friend would definitely not recount this story for people, he just finds it amusing to obliquely reference it and smirk a lot. Because he is a jerk. And I was his best man, two weeks ago.

Mumbletypeg May 3, 2012 at 8:50 pm

And I was his best man, two weeks ago.

I do remember meeting & talking w/ him. Please pass along to him my congrats and my gratitude he put you up in DC for the multitude of events transpiring that weekend. I haven't had the chance to tell you but, the next day at the Rally we ran into DC ValleyGirl (commenter) & her beau/husband (commenter who stayed incognito — he was cheerfully buying many of us beers) by sheer chance, out of that huge crowd, & having just met them at the Big Hunt the night previous? Freaking small world.

Limeylizzie May 3, 2012 at 6:58 pm

I am not sure of this, but I think I might be the only Brit with huge tits, so ….

Barb May 3, 2012 at 6:48 pm

Are you fucking kidding me? After one beer I'll divulge my PIN number.

BigSkullF*ckingDog May 3, 2012 at 6:54 pm

After two beers I will actually f*ck a skull.

starfanglednut May 3, 2012 at 7:03 pm

Down, boy.

Boojum May 3, 2012 at 7:51 pm

You have to drink, first?

BigSkullF*ckingDog May 3, 2012 at 8:40 pm

I'm not an animal.

smokefilledroommate May 3, 2012 at 6:55 pm

I'll be wearing a diaper with a cigarette hanging out of my mouth and let y'all figure it out.

Tundra Grifter May 3, 2012 at 6:55 pm

I would plan on happily providing a screen name – just not mine.

It's like any party you attend where you don't know a single person – you can tell any story you want.

lisawines May 4, 2012 at 2:44 am

You can pretend to be me, so I'll feel like I was there.

Tundra Grifter May 4, 2012 at 11:11 am

That is so sweet of you! Thank you very much!

I really can't be Limey Lizzie – I don't have that many tube sox to stuff with.

When Wonkette comes to SF I will be you!

lisawines May 4, 2012 at 11:16 am

Poyfect!

starfanglednut May 3, 2012 at 6:59 pm

I'll just let you know now, I'm the tall, glamourous 21 year old with the perfect body.

Jukesgrrl May 3, 2012 at 8:02 pm

They'll haz a confused, since there will be two of us.

Tundra Grifter May 4, 2012 at 11:15 am

I still think this is a cute song:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UE6iAjEv9dQ

starfanglednut May 4, 2012 at 1:17 pm

Oooo, he's cute.

Fare la Volpe May 3, 2012 at 7:20 pm

I'm probably the only commenter who's under 25, so I'll stick out like a baby-faced ginger thumb.

Mumbly_Joe May 3, 2012 at 7:37 pm

Not quite the only one; I actually think the commenter age distribution is weirdly bimodal; I'm definitely a 20-something for another year and a half, and constantly surprising people by saying so, and I seem to remember some other regular (possibly Sorosbot???) similarly hinting that they were a young'un.

I'd say that being a ginger still means you'd stand out, but then again, there's still Jim.

MissTaken May 3, 2012 at 7:47 pm

SorosBot and I are both 36. If you consider that being young'uns, I love you!

The average age here at work is 26. They think it's gross that I was born in the 70's. I think so, too, but for entirely different reasons.

Boojum May 3, 2012 at 7:53 pm

God. I was born in '63.

glamourdammerung May 3, 2012 at 8:03 pm

I am 36 as well.

smokefilledroommate May 3, 2012 at 8:10 pm

I'll be 40 in four months…

flamingpdog May 3, 2012 at 8:28 pm

I'll be 36 if 1989 ever comes around this way again. But that's not gonna happen. Wouldn't be prudent.

BigSkullF*ckingDog May 3, 2012 at 9:02 pm

36 also! But with the maturity level of a 12 year old.

Butch_Wagstaff May 3, 2012 at 11:39 pm

I was born in 1975 so I understand.

Fare la Volpe May 3, 2012 at 7:49 pm

I think Vodkamuppet mentioned being youngish, but he's also about to be a new dad, which makes him automatically an Olde.

There are probably a few 20-somethings, but I'm probably the only one who regularly gets mistaken for a high schooler. About three weeks ago I went to help out my mother at a career fair she was throwing for local school kids, and the coordinator kept trying to hand me information on college admissions. I wanted to shove my bachelor's degree in her face.

Boojum May 3, 2012 at 7:53 pm

Is that what the kids are calling it, these days?

Mumbly_Joe May 3, 2012 at 7:58 pm

Oh, I hear ya. I'm sufficiently round-faced that even with the streaks of grey spontaneously sprouting at my temples, I apparently frequently register as "dubiously over 21" to people. I actually make it a point to keep facial hair, because it ages me up by 8 years. Oh, and then I wear glasses, to knock one or two years off of that tally again.

Jukesgrrl May 3, 2012 at 8:15 pm

Maybe you could get the adorable Riley Waggaman to stop by, or is he still in Europe? Just don't show him any pix of cute cats.

Radiotherapy May 3, 2012 at 8:23 pm

Yeah, I'd go to bash if I didn't have to study for that damn SAT.

BigSkullF*ckingDog May 3, 2012 at 9:18 pm

I got carded going into a rated R movie when I was 27. Unfortunately now I get the glance up and down before not being carded for alcohol. Also, back then they thought I was a teenage boy.

vodkamuppet May 9, 2012 at 3:36 pm

I'm 32 and my ex made up that pregnant thing just to fuck with me. Nice girl that one. Coming to the Detroit meet up?

elviouslyqueer May 3, 2012 at 8:24 pm

Promotions!!

You say, "I have to find my friend. The one I've been planning to meet here for a week." Then go hide.

Designer_Rants May 3, 2012 at 11:29 pm

And Plan B (for if Boss isn't cooperating): Everyone wonders where the boss is on Monday… (destroy the surveillance tapes, hell, burn the whole block — tragic, really).

Exhausted66 May 3, 2012 at 8:20 pm

I was going to ask if I had to divulge my real name.

flamingpdog May 3, 2012 at 8:30 pm

That's not your real name?

BigSkullF*ckingDog May 3, 2012 at 9:20 pm

Ima divulge my screen name right now. Its bigskullf*ckingdog. Whew! Its good to get that off my chest!

CthuNHu May 4, 2012 at 4:37 am

The ash-blonde wallflower waif in the wrist-and-ankle-covering Mennonite dress? AngryBlakGuy.

BelleSC May 4, 2012 at 6:17 am

I wouldn't have to. If you heard me speak you'd know it was me.

After reading the replies in this thread it has occurred to me that I am prolly a little old to hang out with this crowd.

Tundra Grifter May 4, 2012 at 11:22 am

Never think that!

You're only as old as the woman you feel (Groucho Marx).

starfanglednut May 4, 2012 at 1:32 pm

Nope. I'm pretty sure we have some in their 70's

102415 May 12, 2012 at 2:15 am

I'm so old it makes me laugh, don't worry about it.

rocktonsam May 3, 2012 at 6:45 pm

I thought Saturday night was Wonkett drunk and get laid night. Besides, I'd have to start riding my bike now from Madison to get there,

Please post titty pictures.

czpalau May 3, 2012 at 6:51 pm

Thanks to your old age and east coast schedule I can make it! Will you be unveiling an iphone app, finally?

commiegirl May 3, 2012 at 8:10 pm

Oh yeah, who wants to build me an iphone app?

flamingpdog May 3, 2012 at 9:00 pm

Just steal one of those farting apps and pass it off as your own. That should delight most Wonketeers.

Designer_Rants May 3, 2012 at 11:36 pm

Delighted just thinking about it! And those farts on the app have clever names, but we could do our best to name them after politicians.
– Sarah Fartin?
– Joe the Plopper?
– Barack O'ToiletBomber?
Those aren't near as funny as you guys can come up with.

lisawines May 4, 2012 at 2:49 am

Me. :-)

Fukui-sanYesRadio May 5, 2012 at 4:58 am

I also would/could do that, but what would it do over being able to browse our favourite website on Safari on the iPhone?

Come here a minute May 3, 2012 at 6:53 pm

Regrefully, I will have to drink the beer through the intertubes.

Beowoof May 3, 2012 at 6:58 pm

Damn the closest one is Detroit, and I have this job they want me to show and do at least until the 3rd week in May. If you come to anywhere in the Upstate NY corridor from Albany to Buffalo, I am in.

SheriffRoscoe May 3, 2012 at 6:59 pm

I'll be there! (If I can get a couple of outstanding warrants taken care of.)

emmelemm May 3, 2012 at 10:04 pm

Best answer yet.

You're the Sheriff! Offer yourself a blowjob to make it all go away.

Maybe you'll get lucky, and everyone will already have health care before Thursday.

Chichikovovich May 3, 2012 at 7:02 pm

I can't be in LA, but,….Detroit? Really? This isn't some of that ironic discourse snarky thing that you Wonkettistas do, is it? I hope not, because that would really rock.

Powerpuff_Grl May 10, 2012 at 12:35 am

Hey Chichi – there ain't no party like a detroit party 'cuz a Deetroit party don't stop

Well twist my tits — I'm moving to Ann Arbor in early June!! I'll be able to go if Rebeccs is totally not pulling my leg!!! YAY!

Holy smokes, you are only going to be about an hour or so due north of me. I've heard wonderful things about Ann Arbor music and artsy-fartsy wise.

Angry_Marmot May 3, 2012 at 10:45 pm

We call Ann Arbor the Kalamazoo of the East.

Negropolis May 4, 2012 at 8:45 am

And, Kalamazoo is the Ann Arbor of the West, and Yspi is well…Ypsi. Poor Ypsi.

Beanball May 3, 2012 at 7:19 pm

Here's a review of Busby's from the Google thing.

Worst management I've ever seen and a huge sausage fest.. If you like to hang out with a bunch of angry little asians kids then you'll love it

Sounds like our editrix really knows how to pick 'em.

HistoriCat May 3, 2012 at 8:00 pm

Rebecca, Kirsten and Sara Benincasa aren't enough for you?

commiegirl May 3, 2012 at 8:02 pm

That might be Busby's West. Busby's East is a bizarrely decorated sports bar full of a very mixed, very mellow, and usually older crowd.

But hey, you know, believe some random person on Google, it's cool.

Designer_Rants May 3, 2012 at 8:54 pm

That was me who wrote that. I used to go to Busby's every Wednesday at 6:50 sharp to pick up their used fryer oil for my bio diesel VeeDub bus. But then old man Busby decided that Thursdays would work better for him than Wednesdays. THE FUCKIN NERVE of these people! I'm doing HIM a favor! Plus, the one time I ate there, I asked the waiter for a lime wedge, NOT a lemon wedge, in my water. Didn't even listen to me. I also wrote every other bad review on Busbys, probably, cuz JUSTICE. Hey, if you see him before I do, tell him 6:50 sharp, Thursday. I want my fryer oil.

Guppy May 4, 2012 at 8:17 am

That reminds me: will there be USFB?

Steverino247 May 3, 2012 at 7:22 pm

Well, if I don't win the night at Clooney's house with BO, I could drive up after work. Probably get there about 7 to 7:30. Free beer is a better offer than mine to you of hotdogs at Pink's, fer sure. If I win the C/BO event, you'll have to stick around until I get done for the "after party" OK?

So, pencil me in and if you hear faint whooping sounds from the south, you'll know I'm off to Clooney's place.

EDIT: Hey, that's not far from the Tar Pits. I know where that is. (Can we throw a Republican into the tar when we get drunk? I mean, mammoths look a lot like elephants and all…)

Tundra Grifter May 3, 2012 at 7:32 pm

Dear Editrix:

Blueb4sunrise May 3, 2012 at 7:40 pm

Is this one of those internet things where I can ask a bunch of strangers for money so I can go party?

DocChaos May 3, 2012 at 7:41 pm

The idea of traveling over the hill and driving in circles looking for free parking, so I can stand awkwardly in the corner nursing my free beer while eavesdropping on the conversations of others appeals to me, but it is unfortunately my poker night.

James Michael Curley May 3, 2012 at 8:39 pm

Giant parking lot down the street. Was City of LA decades ago, right across from the museum. Have no idea what the night life is like in the 'Miracle Mile' these days but decades ago after 8:00 pm you could walk nekkid down the meridian and few people would see you and those who did, didn't care.

Barb May 3, 2012 at 8:42 pm

James, which party will you be attending? I hope you will be at one of them. I'm just dying to meet you.

James Michael Curley May 3, 2012 at 8:56 pm

Somewhere on the East Coast. You’ll recognize me; I’m smaller than Chris Christie.

Barb May 3, 2012 at 9:35 pm

Gosh, that narrows it down to um, EVERYBODY.

PuckStopsHere May 3, 2012 at 7:41 pm

Detroit is excited! I can't remember the last time somebody came to visit us, although I understand the Kansas City Royals were here recently. If I am still alive in June (this is something you have to say if you live in Detroit, for the record) I will be there for sure! Should I wear my goalie gear? I think not as it is difficult to drink while wearing the mask. But if that is the kind of thing that turns you on (nudge, nudge saynomore)…

ThundercatHo May 3, 2012 at 7:47 pm

Please help our Editrix choose somewhere good/safe for our party.

Harry_S_Truman May 3, 2012 at 7:59 pm

Oh, sure! Someone mentions Detroit, and all you can think about is being safe. #DetroitLibel

flamingpdog May 3, 2012 at 8:38 pm

Just don't use the Google like Beanball did earlier. Consult the Bing instead.

Harry_S_Truman May 3, 2012 at 7:57 pm

The last time someone really important came here, it was Dennis Christopher, when he got stuck overnight at Metro Airport shortly after his starring role in Breaking Away.

Jukesgrrl May 3, 2012 at 8:34 pm

Don't forget to stand your ground if the Motor City Madman crashes your par-tay.

UnholyMoses May 4, 2012 at 12:16 pm

At least KC won a freaking game … and did so against the Yankees last night for their first win at home.

W00T!!!

Now if you'll excuse me, I need to go kick David Glass square in the balls …

Harry_S_Truman May 3, 2012 at 7:51 pm

Dee-fuckin'-troit? Like for real? No one ever comes here. Too bad I'll be busy that night. (What night is it?)

owhatever May 3, 2012 at 7:56 pm

Bunch of drunks. Be ashamed of yourselves in advance, then party on.

Mort_Sinclair May 3, 2012 at 8:03 pm

Well, what I don't see here is any mention of Massachusetts. What, do you have to live in a tea-bagger Christian F-350 racist shit-hole to get anybody from Wonkette to show up?

Harry_S_Truman May 3, 2012 at 8:10 pm

Oh, gawd. Just what this site needs: more unabashed Yankee Exceptionalism. Good grief, Mort. (Just love the powerful 'stache, though.)

starfanglednut May 4, 2012 at 1:39 pm

I am in MA.

tomrfinn May 3, 2012 at 8:14 pm

THE WEST SIDE, BUT THE TRAFFIC?!?!?!?!?!?!?!??!

I will probably still come…

themcwow May 3, 2012 at 8:23 pm

Darnabbit! May 10 is my other kid's birthday. Please o please have another party in or near L.A. It would be a dream cum true.

JustPixelz May 4, 2012 at 6:07 am

But it's a party. Just throw in some cake. And what kind of parent wouldn't bring his/her child to a Wonkette free beer party in a sports bar?

elviouslyqueer May 3, 2012 at 8:26 pm

Come to Memphis. Because of me, duh. Oh, and Evan Hurst. We'll even let you say "gay" now. Gay gay gay gay gay gay gay gay gay gay gay GAY!

commiegirl May 3, 2012 at 8:31 pm

There has been an IMPORTANT UPDATE. We suggest you read it, Westsiders. Pfft.

flamingpdog May 3, 2012 at 9:11 pm

Prolly a lot less traffic between Ohio and Detroit than between half of LA. Not like there's a whole lotta people in that stretch of Mur'ca that can afford the gas to drive anywhere these days.

AlterNewt May 3, 2012 at 8:35 pm

I will be there. So will my girlfriend because otherwise I can't bring my penis.

Freewayblogger May 3, 2012 at 8:42 pm

I'll try to schedule an LA signhanging blitz in your honor. And possibly show up…

Gleem McShineys May 3, 2012 at 8:43 pm

Hot damn! I so want to do this! Gotta think of a way to get there…

imissopus May 3, 2012 at 8:45 pm

Oh the irony! I live not far from Busby's East but I will be visiting family on the East Coast next Thursday. I mean, I can still get drunk and scream "Show us your tits" when I'm at my brother's house, but I don't think my four-year-old nephews will get it. Although who knows, kids are weird.

Oh well, next Benincasa visit.

mavenmaven May 3, 2012 at 8:46 pm

Oh great, just as I moved from LA to the East Coast. You bastards!

fuflans May 3, 2012 at 8:47 pm

won't you please come to chicago?

flamingpdog May 3, 2012 at 9:15 pm
fuflans May 3, 2012 at 9:45 pm

well i was hoping you would all just come to chicago.

( but in truth i heard that on the radio last night and it was in my head).

plus, you know, nato.

CivicHoliday May 3, 2012 at 8:47 pm

I can haz St. Louis party?? Maybe you can follow Bammerz here next time he comes to campaign. Just track the scent of Brut, sweat and raisins.

WhatTheHeck May 3, 2012 at 8:52 pm

I’ll try to be there. It won’t be hard to recognize me. I look like my avatar.

glasspusher May 3, 2012 at 11:57 pm

Dark glasses?

Tundra Grifter May 4, 2012 at 11:03 am

Like a Chinese dissident.

jajabanana May 3, 2012 at 8:53 pm

Come to San Francisco!!!!!

chascates May 3, 2012 at 8:56 pm

I can't make it but will you please post pictures???

finallyhappy May 3, 2012 at 9:01 pm

If you do Dc- maybe I will come this time. I may be in Charlotte for the convention so I would definitely come to your party as you would be the only people I know besides the President(ok, he doesn't know me but then neither do you.

Mumbletypeg May 3, 2012 at 9:07 pm

Dc- maybe I will come this time

I encourage you to do so. Whatever kept you from coming to the last one — it was so very worth it. ("it"= the drive; the peeps who also showed up even from FL and NY; the hangover next day, the fleabag motel, & nearly passing out from hunger while walking around the Sanity Rally)

littlebigdaddy May 3, 2012 at 9:13 pm

Will there be hookupz?

johnnyzhivago May 3, 2012 at 9:20 pm

New Jersey Shore or GTFO!

zedbot May 3, 2012 at 9:20 pm

Envy. <——- If Denver is ever on the list, I'm there.

littlebigdaddy May 3, 2012 at 9:21 pm

You need to do one in Denver!

flamingpdog May 3, 2012 at 11:43 pm

That's four votes at least for Denver/Boulder! Bring it on, Miz Rebecky!

winnyfranfran May 3, 2012 at 9:24 pm

Great! As soon as I move away from Detroit, Wonkette decides to visit. I am always in the wrong place at the wrong time!

miss_grundy May 3, 2012 at 9:32 pm

Where's the party in Detroit? If I can make it, count me in.

walkingthecow May 3, 2012 at 9:34 pm

I will be there from the Westside, probably via bus! In LA! How's that for dedication?! (Also, cars are expensive.)

rocktonsam May 3, 2012 at 9:43 pm

Come to Madison it has everything you need….wink

its like Columbia without the Secret Service

stay out of trouble you crazy kids

FakaktaSouth May 3, 2012 at 9:46 pm

Well allrighty then, a thing to look forward to – it sounds like this is going to turn into a tour of sorts and there have been a couple of places mentioned that even my country come to town dumbass could find and get to – boobs out, of course, especially for the NYC. Fantastic.

trampndirtdown May 3, 2012 at 9:58 pm

If you can guarantee an AMC appearance I'll buy a plane ticket.
P.S. all you Wonket skum who registered to reply must now start commenting.

Barb May 3, 2012 at 11:38 pm

Trampndirtdown, I guess that means I will have to buy less limes for my New Mexico party and the bestest margaritas evah!

starfanglednut May 4, 2012 at 1:41 pm

Seems to have enticed many lurkers into the open.

MnLibTdGrl May 3, 2012 at 10:04 pm

Wish I could, but that is a long way from Minnesota. Hope you all have tons of fun and don't get alcohol poisoning!

emmelemm May 3, 2012 at 10:08 pm

Off topic but still on-topic of sucking up to Wonkette: I ordered Miss Sara Benincasa's book this past weekend, and have started it, and it is divine! All Wonketteers with a modicum of disposable income should look into it.

flamingpdog May 3, 2012 at 11:46 pm

Hear, hear*! I was gonna buy three more for friends if I could get sweet Sara to sign them, but (!sniff) she couldn't make it to my town. Are you lurking, red-headed goddess?

*correctiwonkle spelling

lisawines May 4, 2012 at 3:11 am

Done! Kindle edition! Yay!

ElPinche May 3, 2012 at 10:24 pm

Set one up in Austin, and I'll suck everyone's dick …………for free.

Barb May 3, 2012 at 10:32 pm

Bristol, you are not invited.

Radiotherapy May 3, 2012 at 10:51 pm

What, no wine coolers?

ElPinche May 3, 2012 at 10:57 pm

That's right. I have one rule , No semen on the furniture. Bristol's creampies would be a disaster.

Barb May 3, 2012 at 11:11 pm

"No semen on the furniture" What furniture is in a tent?

Radiotherapy May 3, 2012 at 10:49 pm

The pussy is all mine. ; ))

BarackMyWorld May 3, 2012 at 10:34 pm

Sorry…no can do.

-I have my daughter that weekend.
-I'm creepy as hell in person, and not at all funny or fun to be around.
-I don't want anyone (Benincasa) hitting me with a restraining order, even if it's out of state.
-Oh, yeah…sadly, Los Angeles is over 1,600 miles away.

I'm tempted to go to Detroit in June, but there's a chance I'll just keep driving right into Canada.

Angry_Marmot May 3, 2012 at 10:57 pm

I'll steer towards Detroit, though the pull of the titty bars in Windsor is strong. If I bring my attending veterinarian, her threat of a quick fix will keep me in line.

Barb May 3, 2012 at 11:08 pm

BMW, I find that so very odd. I find you incredibly interesting and witty. One of the top people here. I won't name the scale, so that I won't piss anyone off. Let's just put it this way, if I appeared on a game show you would be a "phone a friend" and I would depend on you greatly.

How can someone be impressive here and not impressive in real life? I've heard people say, "I wish I could be witty" and the truth of the matter is that either you are witty or you are not. It is not a learned talent and it is not something you can force. Dear GOD, don't try to force it or you just make it worse.

Fukui-sanYesOta May 3, 2012 at 11:39 pm

Second this.

BMW, you're great.

BarackMyWorld May 3, 2012 at 11:40 pm

Thank you, but I've always believed I only seem funny in writing because you awesome folks are adding your own comedic delivery to my posts as you read them and making them funnier than they would be if I was saying them.

Barb May 4, 2012 at 12:01 am

I don't buy it, sorry. There is no benefit to me to bullshit you. You are a very interesting, insightful and witty person, like it or not.

I'm going to piss people off now, get over it everyone. BarackMyWorld, if I had to choose three people to be a "Phone a Friend" in a Wonkette contest, you are on that list. I'm not saying we are "chummy" or even "besties" I am just telling you that if Becca called tonight and said that we were going to some sort of contest and we had to represent Wonkette and I had to pick three people, you'd be packing your jammies for the trip, seriously.

I will never name the other two, cross my heart.

finallyhappy May 4, 2012 at 7:24 am

Don't worry about being creepy- given my age- it is just creepy that I would consider showing up.t being just a old(er) woman not too well dressed, I can pass as a homeless person. I know that is true because the women at the soup kitchen in Maryland and the shelter in DC where I volunteer- are frequently better dressed and certainly better groomed than me(they wear make-up, style their hair- I take a shower and brush my hair).

commiegirl May 4, 2012 at 9:29 am

You take showers and brush your hair? Then you have half of us beat by a mile, duh.

Mumbletypeg May 4, 2012 at 10:01 am

wear make-up, style [vs.] brush hair… // … not too well dressed

by this account, your presence would assure me I'd feel *right* at home.

emmelemm May 4, 2012 at 1:31 pm

If I take a shower and brush my hair, I call it a GOOD DAY.

Guppy May 4, 2012 at 8:13 am

How can someone be impressive here and not impressive in real life?

Real life has people in it and requires social skills.

Fukui-sanYesRadio May 5, 2012 at 5:06 am

Crazy talk. You can beat them down with force of personality, snark and smell.

Wait, hang on.

starfanglednut May 4, 2012 at 1:43 pm

Actually, I am more impressive in real life. I crack my friends up, but my snark here is second rate. Dunno why.

Fukui-sanYesRadio May 5, 2012 at 5:03 am

Maybe your friends are sucky flatliners(*)? You've always seemed smart and hilarious to me.

* Mondo 2000 joke from, um, 1992 or something. Sorry.

starfanglednut May 6, 2012 at 7:39 pm

Aww, thanks Fukui.

Biff May 3, 2012 at 11:06 pm

Few hundred miles too far away, but thanks for the invite!

DerrickWildcat May 3, 2012 at 11:09 pm

no.

Tundra Grifter May 4, 2012 at 11:04 am

Buzzkill.

Limeylizzie May 3, 2012 at 11:16 pm

But if we ever do, Owls, I'll call you.

Extemporanus May 3, 2012 at 11:54 pm

Owls puts the "HOOT!" in hooters.

MnLibTdGrl May 3, 2012 at 11:17 pm

My previous attempt to decline has not appeared yet. The message did say that a Wonket administrator would have to approve it though. Perhaps my heartfelt note did not pass muster. If so, this one too shall go to the etherwebz. I DID try to sign up and comment dear Editrix!!!!!!

BR,
MnLibTdGrl

C_R_Eature May 3, 2012 at 11:20 pm

Well now, this L.A. shindig sounds wonderful and I'd enjoy Hanging Out with you people but, unfortunately, I just won't drive 2760 miles to be social, even for free beer. Please post some updates for those of us who can't be there so we can react with the appropriate hilarity and flippant commentary.
EDIT: Three words – Liveblogging, Titties and Beer.

The closest I'll be to Detroit will be in Wisconsin in early June, but that will be a very different mission with very different people. There will, no doubt be Drinking involved, and I may very well need a bar at some point. Does this place in Detroit serve Cephalopods?

flamingpdog May 3, 2012 at 11:51 pm

Sorry, No Dogs or Ceph'loes Allowed.

smokefilledroommate May 4, 2012 at 4:20 am

Or Segways. For the love of fucking god, no Segways.

C_R_Eature May 4, 2012 at 5:37 am

That's two strikes. Dammit, I can't take these things anywhere.

It's rank discrimination, what it is.

finallyhappy May 4, 2012 at 7:27 am

Serve cephalopods?- sure, they have great calamari at that bar.

Being with hundreds/thousands of tourists- every 5th one looks at the Giant Squid and says- ummm, calamari(or some similar brilliant comment)

C_R_Eature May 4, 2012 at 6:52 pm

Well, I usually say Yum, Calamari. Cool.

Chichikovovich May 3, 2012 at 11:25 pm

Not surprising that that post brought you out of the aviary – greetings! (Is your school term finishing about now?)

Lazy Media May 4, 2012 at 12:09 am

Dang, I'm gonna be in NYC in May. Y'all need to do one of these in DC anytime after August, and I'll go there on my bicycle.

finallyhappy May 4, 2012 at 7:28 am

Are you one of those people I scream at from inside my car -riding w/o a helmet and in flipflops on 14th street?

Lazy Media May 4, 2012 at 10:07 am

No, I always wear a helmet, plus sneakers or boots. I'm 50, I have no need to look cool. The only reason I own a pair of flip flops is to use them as shower shoes when I'm down range.

not that Dewey May 4, 2012 at 12:09 am

Well, that will give you more time to look for Blue Caps

chitrade May 4, 2012 at 12:22 am

Will there be a shooting competition? Should I bring my 3-gun or IDPA rig?

Do the Crips do 3-gun, or are they still an IDPA-only club? G-Pac, LilTony and "razer" want to do a rematch, but with all the rules-lawyering I'm feeling it's a wash.

That's all BS anyway. I'm not venturing out from the US into the California Territories until you all get some train stations and law'n'order out there.

reggiepepper May 4, 2012 at 12:36 am

Will be there to apologize to the younger generation for leaving you such a fucked up world.

Poofamagick May 4, 2012 at 12:46 am

I will be there to see my heroes from Teh Wonkette. Also, too.

Right, we had that story three weeks ago! How soon you all forget!

flamingpdog May 5, 2012 at 2:22 am

Hey, I'm OLD! Besides, it was probably one of the 10 out of 14 stories I didn't have the time to read!

Looks like I will be there. HAPPY NOW? WELL ARE YOU?

Callyson May 4, 2012 at 1:38 am

Update–looks like the exam will not take the whole three hours so I will get there when I can, which might not be until 8:45 or so, but I am in!

Maman May 4, 2012 at 1:40 am

Any thoughts about Chicago or should I prepare for a slog to Detroit?

Ann_ObeyMe_Money May 4, 2012 at 1:45 am

Enjoy yourselves, little ones. Wish I could be there with you, but I'll raise a glass for y'all instead.

mary_sunshine May 4, 2012 at 2:05 am

For this, my husband and I will drag our lazy asses out of East LA.

Hoisted_Peatard May 4, 2012 at 2:12 am

You know this kinda sucks….why ya'll gotta do me like that…or not do me, that's the point. But seriously, if this party were to swing up to Portland, Or (why won't a commie girl come to the peoples republic of Portland as the local wingnut fauna call it? Conspiracy!) I'd totally be there. But L.A. is too far away and alas I am loaded down with my job at an evil giant bank (which I cannot name for fear they'll somehow know who I am and fire me) and attending classes at OSU. So even though technically I have a life and a job…I somehow work, work,work and yet have no money or social life…imagine that. Okay, I'm repressing it now….ahh, done. Anyway, too bad, sounds like theres going to be a lot of fine female flesh and fun there and I'll be here…okay, I made myself seriously depressed now. Oh and about my job at the big bank…fear not fellow libtards, I do my job badly and don't follow bank procedures on reimbursements…so I'm bringin' it down from the inside.

SockBunny May 4, 2012 at 2:14 am

You know how hard it is to get to mid-city around 6:30? That said, excited about maybe.

Get out ! I would have never guessed that.
You're the same age as my beloved Aunt Lisa. Can I call you Aunt Lisa?

lisawines May 4, 2012 at 3:52 am

Yes, please! I would be honored.

finallyhappy May 4, 2012 at 7:18 am

no, way, I turned 59 last week

lisawines May 4, 2012 at 10:09 am

I didn't put the little ' thing in front of '57 so I'm not 57, but 55. But now you can lord it over me, since you are more mature.

lisawines May 4, 2012 at 2:51 am

Please schedule Puebla Meh-hee-co for July and Paris Freedom-Fries France for October. K?

Oooh, I might be able to make that as well.

BaldarTFlagass May 4, 2012 at 9:08 am

I'm a total asshole in real life, so I won't inflict myself on y'all except for here.

Jerri May 4, 2012 at 9:19 am

Come to Milwaukee! Do you have any idea how cheap beer is here? It is so very inexpensive (even the good stuff is pretty cheap, relatively speaking). You could spring for more than 10 pitchers, which you would almost certainly have to do since the 10 would be gone within minutes.

And, we will could either celebrate recalling that chud, Scott Walker, or weep about failing to recall that chud, Scott Walker.

Stevola May 4, 2012 at 9:23 am

Will there be hair braiding?

GorzoTheMighty May 4, 2012 at 9:54 am

This sounds like a audition to "To Catch a Predator" or an invitation to a drone strike. I think l will hide out in my basement drinking everclear and rainwater waiting for the indictments/ bodycount to be announced on Fox.

Barb May 4, 2012 at 10:14 am

I made sweet tea, be right back.

widestanceromance May 4, 2012 at 10:18 am

If/when it happens in the DC area, I would have no problem revealing my screen name, but never my real one.

We could just walk about with our p-nesses as our name tags?

Owls! I have not seen you here, and was thinking of you. All is well?

ttommyunger May 4, 2012 at 1:37 pm

No offense, but I think parties suck. On the other hand, find yourself in Atlanta and I'll buy you the greasiest hamburger and coldest beer this side of the Mason-Dixon Line, male or female, straight or ghey. I think Wonketeers are the smartest, funniest most honest people in this benighted Country. Tommy's cell: 404 372 9907.

yes, exactly! It is my favorite of all the old dumps.

M. Bouffant May 7, 2012 at 9:14 pm

Ah hell, I don't pay attention for a couple days (now back after hearing Barry loves the gheys) and this breaks out. I'm in LA-adjoining and would love to come be debaucherous with ya'll. But yeah, that stupid job-thing. I'm feeling exploited by the bourgeois again!

Last time I got carded, I was 44. About a week after my birthday.

(It was in a dark bar, I was dressed like a particularly misguided highschooler – khaki shorts and polo shirt. I think the bartender was probably more drunk than I was.)

Your avatar suggests otherwise.

I can relate to that, too, being a brown.

That's classic!

OMG, that's like 2 blocks from my house!

Yes. I am Virgo. Hear me, uh, be chaste.

What day in Sept?

Designer_Rants May 3, 2012 at 11:25 pm

32 in 2 weeks. I'm counting down the days because the wife makes carrot cake and ham balls on my birthday only.

3rd! shit, I guess it's exactly four months from now.. I have the same bday as Charlie Sheen! (I tell everyone that when I first meet them. Then I watch them run away).

Those of us in red states sneer at your whiny asses.

Shit, I'm 52 and get carded every time I order a drink. At the airport, anyway.

OneYieldRegular May 4, 2012 at 10:11 am

At my age, I still get carded too, but I suspect it's mostly to provide reassurance that I can still (literally) hold my liquor.

OH, then thank you and never mind!

Haha. Jerry is as corrupt as everyone else, but at least he's smart and a Democrat as well.

When he was mayor of Oakland, his buddy Jacques Barzaghi was a super-corrupt unelected "friend" of Jerry who got protected from … wait, I have to stop short of libel/slander here.

Anyway, long and short, wifey used to be on the campaign team for Jerry and couldn't face voting for him this time around, even over nightmare Whitman. I had to fill out the voting form (which I believe might be VOTER FRAUD since I'm not allowed to vote) for her.

Wifey doesn't remember CommieMom, I asked.

Last time I was there I don’t think the standing one was. I have a picture of me sitting on the bench with me handing me a white envelope over stuffed with cash.

Fare la Volpe May 9, 2012 at 7:30 pm

Dude that's…Jesus. I'm so sorry. Are you okay? I hope you kicked that bitch to the curb.

And yes, I will definitely be at the Detroit meet-up! Find the baby-faced ginger kid and your first drink's on me, man. It sounds like you need it.
