Now Announcing Your Wonkette Drinky Thing And Meetup East Coast World Tour

Actor 212, probablyHave you been so, so angry that the Wonkette Drinky Thing and Meetup World Tour has not yet made its way to you? WE KNOW! JESUS! Well, with the coming conventions, we’re pleased to announce a lineup of tour dates for you Right Coasters.

We will start with a party at the Republican National Convention in Tampa, so sometime between like Aug. 27 and Aug. 29. We don’t know the date yet. Whichever night is neither the keynote, nor Michele Bachmann’s veep acceptance speech. It will probably be in a titty bar, knowing us. Please don’t bring your guns into town.

Then, it’s your turn, Atlanta! Be ready Sat., Sept. 1! At a place to be determined!

From there, we will grace with our presence Charlotte, North Carolina, and the DNC. We have to check with our aunt first before we get a date for this one. “What are your plans in Charlotte?” she emailed us. “I’m a member of the DNC so have a vote, for what it’s worth.” “Wait wait wait, let me guess,” we emailed back. “RANDALL TERRY???” We guess she didn’t think that was funny, because she never wrote back again, but we for one found it FUCKING HILARIOUS.

From there, we will hit DC — let’s call that “September 8″ — and then Philly (Sept. 11, Never Forget) and NYC (Sept. 13). Are you happy now, Actor 212? ARE YOU???

By all means, donate your sad little muneez below. (And by the bye, did you know that if you click through on our Amazon linky to the right, any shit you buy gives us a sweet little cut? Well, now you do.)

As to those of you who donated to our Beer Fund, expect your NPR totes and kitten with a whip stickers in August. We just have to, like, print them first.

Keep calm and carry on.

      That link's pub date, c. 2009, feels like so long ago.

      Mark Sanford blew away the privacy of the place over the past week, revealing that he had confided in his "C Street" "Christian friends" the cross-continental affair that he had hidden from his wife.

      And yet that story seems like it was just yesterday.

            Make it in the fall … so November?

            Although I would register as a lobbyist so I could lobby for October. I probably couldn't make a November meetup.

          • chascates

            October sounds good. Could be in the low 80s then and not so hot. We could have a picnic on the State Capital grounds across from the Texas' Governor's Mansion.

            Where do you live Histori?
            I have a whole crazy trip planned for October. I will be going from Albuquerque to Tampa, to see Victoria Grace and then up to Delaware to see Christine and Mina, the megabeast, then to DC for our 6th wedding anniversary, and then over to Chicago for Jeff's best friend's wedding.

            I have tickets for San Diego in November for a Chargers v Ravens game. We will be staying at Jeff's dad's place in La Jolla, for that event.

            I'll be in Vegas, twice in between all of this hooey. I hope that one of these trips would be convenient for you. If not, you just have to come along with us.

          • Jeffer

            I'm thinking we'll be in Vegas the weeks of September 9th and October 1. Barb and I first met September 12, so that should work. October 1 is the week of the big gaming show, and I usually have to make an appearance at that.

          • Barb_

            I don't want to go to the big gaming show, please. I don't like the people, the vendors suck and it is too much like speed dating. Yeah, you are sitting 10 inches away from me and I don't have the ballz to say this to you.

          • Steverino247

            My friends are on the chain crew for those games. Wave and tell them Steve sent you.

          • HistoriCat

            I'm in Houston. Accepting the fact that Austin is a) far more friendly territory for a drinky thing and b) more central for the rest of the Texas Wonkette contingent, I'm willing to do Austin.

            I just need to make sure I have good timing to keep Mrs. Historicat happy.

    NYC is rather open ended. I have in mind a ironic hipster open air beer hall like in Williamsburg or Greenwood, or that crab joint in Red Hook. Instead I am getting the sense it will be outside some OTB branch past closing hours in Jamaica Estates.

    • NYNYNYjr

      Please not some stupid ass place like Jamaica Queens or Redhook that will take most people IN NYC over an hour to get to. And Greenwood? You must live in Greenwood. I say Bushwick… in fact, Roberta's Pizza– look it up. Good

      • http://simplyleftbehind.blogspot.com/ actor212

        Red Hook is like a ten minute train ride and walk. It's just west of the Heights/Park Slope.

        • http://intensedebate.com/people/mrblifil mrblifil

          You can also take the (almost) free ferry from lower manhattan to Ikea and then walk.

        • sewollef

          Been waiting for that new crab joint to open. Every time I drive by after getting my groceries from my local Fairway. It's right by the water, it'd be cool…. we can wave at Lady Liberty.

Staten Island should be saved for the New Jersey people though because as far as I am concerned that is where it is located for more reasons than one.

It is possible that Riley Waggaman will still be in the country, nay even in that area around that time*. And based on past experience at the DC-based shindig years ago, Virginian area lurkers come out of the woodwork for these things. So Yes, and Can't Hardly Wait.

    I was out of mind and you
    Were on the phone
    Lonnie was the kingpin
    Back in nineteen sixty-five
    I was singing this song
    When Lonnie came alive

    Bring back the Boston Rag
    Tell all your buddies
    That it ain't no drag
    Bring back the Boston Rag

    You were Lady Bayside
    There was nothing that I could do
    So I pointed my car down
    Seventh Avenue
    Lonnie swept the playroom
    And he swallowed up all he found
    It was forty-eight hours til
    Lonnie came around

    Bring back the Boston Rag
    Tell all your buddies
    That it ain't no drag

For example in yer parts the rental rates on those throw the ball at the target dunk tanks should be a steal in The first Wednesday after the first Monday in Blovember.

          • ttommyunger

            My reply to your suggestion included no personal attacks or references to you. I'm used to generalizations (bikers are drug abusers), false equivalence (only the drug-addled would find disagreement with you) and marginalization (therefore my opinions don't matter) from the Right; but I rarely see Wonketeers use such lame tactics. They do nothing to bolster your argument. I've been riding (on our roadways) since I was fifteen but have never referred to myself as a “biker” because of the negative implications of the term (which I'm sure you intended). If your intent was to piss me off a little, then you done good. If your intent was to move the discussion about a meeting venue, then I fail to see how that was accomplished. Your move.Sent from my iPhone

          • Boojum

            TTommy! Joke! You seemed a little tense, is all, so I was free associating and, being from East Tennessee (accent on the FIRST syllable, motherfuckers!), my head went towards chemicals. The "biker" reference came from your description of the bar as a "Shit Kicker Biker Bar". One plus one apparently equalled 57.

      I will see you there – without a doubt. I will help start the trouble that you can break-up and drink all the liquor you won't. We will have so much fun!

        I am a-quiver with anticipation-or is it the Palsey?Sent from my iPhone

      • Nothingisamiss

        Oh my fucking Lord. I have GOT to be there. I'm looking forward to meeting you, FS.

        Now…how to get out of some un-get-outable plans for that same night…….

  • http://wonkette.com/ starfanglednut

    How many Bostonians here?

    We could go to NYC or Philly together!

    • bibliotequetress

      Wish I could, dammit.

  • http://wonkette.com/ starfanglednut

    I want to be in teh sideways picture. (So I'll look tall)

  • Butch_Wagstaff

    Okay, now I'm gonna have to schedule some days of panhandling downtown to get some $ for DC. I mean, I wouldn't be able to just do an overnight stay. I'd have to make a weekend of it, for sure (I don't travel well all hungover and shit).
    Fuck it. I probably won't be able to make it. But I will be there in spirit, leering at the cute Wonker menz.

  • Nothingisamiss

    WOOT! Atlanta!

  • http://lostintarnation.blogspot.com/ SayItWithWookies

    Well — I'll go to at least one of them — but I'll be drunk every night that one is happening, just out of respect.

    • Nothingisamiss

      It's a question of honor, really.

    • http://simplyleftbehind.blogspot.com/ actor212

      But this differs from every other week…how, precisely?

      • http://lostintarnation.blogspot.com/ SayItWithWookies

        Shhhh.

  • DrunkIrishman

    Is that H.W. Bush?

  • Nothingisamiss

    You have got to be fucking kidding me. My first wonkette drinky thing and I just realized that night I have absolutely un-fucking-breakable plans that night.

    Un fucking believable! I'mma gonna have to drive to Charlotte and find a nice couch to sleep on.

    • FlyOverGirl

      Yay. Charlotte. Now good luck getting a venue without a $12k fee or having to give the DNC a cut.

  • http://we.come-to-pottersville2.blogspot.com cmputrwizard

    What about MYRTLE BEACH???

    To hell with Charlotte.

    The action's in Myrtle Beach!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Tribbz

    We're going to pray about going to Atlanta. We will ask the Lord for guidance as we may have to skip out on tithing for that week to get there.

    • Boojum

      God understands.

    • 102415

      God's going to be in Atlanta that night. Buy her a drink and she'll call it even.

  • http://dismalpseudoscientist.wordpress.com Fraudulently_Joe

    I have friends, and a lady-friend, in DC and Philly, respectively! I'm tempted to budget some extra days off work, and follow Wonkete up the mid-Atlantic like a Grateful Dead tour.

    Incidentally, if we're looking for a place to hold this in New York, I feel honor-bound to mention that the Original Famous Drinking Liberally meets Thursdays at Rudy's in Hell's Kitchen. Which is nice and accessible to most city folk. So, it might be an option to either hold it nearby, and drop in before or after, or to just hold it at Rudy's and take over DL for a night (I've asked the organizers in the past, and they're totally cool with that!!!)

    • http://www.marionstein.net Self-Uploader

      Hell's Kitchen is a nice central location served by mass transit.

    • Millennial Malaise

      There is a Williamsburg drinking liberally that's only once a month. I've never been to the Hell's Kitchen one even tho I work there. I second this idea to take over/merge the Drinking Liberally. Indeed, I was going to invite the wburg crew to the Wonkette drinking thing once we found a place.

    • 102415

      I love that place. I will definely go there and the hot dogs are nice and cheap. Okay I am officailly begging for Rudy's and I will wear my Drinking Liberally button.

  • subsum

    No Austin? What a bummer.

  • OneYieldRegular

    Hell, this means I may just have to fly back to my hometown, as the only way I foresee getting through another family visit is if I can attend a Wonkette gathering just afterwards.

  • Negropolis

    It will probably be in a titty bar, knowing us Tampa.

    /fixed

  • http://www.marionstein.net Self-Uploader

    Never having been to one of these train wrecks festivities, what should one expect? (Also, please not Williamsburg. I am too old and too poor. I am not allowed there.)

    • Fukui-sanYesOta

      Drinking. Fun people. More drinking. Good conversation. Even more drinking.

      They're great.

  • finallyhappy

    WHOA!!!! I skipped something- ATLANTA- 9/1 – I may well be in Atlanta 9/1. I hardly know Atlanta except for the airport and the Flying Biscuit near Midtown/arts center

    • Nothingisamiss

      I do love the Flying Biscuit. That would be a great hangover spot the next day.

  • Redgyal

    Looks like someone forgot the third coast.

    • HistoriCat

      She's forgetting it as hard as possible.

      • Redgyal

        I don't understand why……..

  • TootsStansbury

    Rats. I have a fambly thing for the DC drinky thing. Horse heads in my bed would be the least of my worries if I missed it.

  • BaldarTFlagass

    So, the Texas shunning continues.

    Not that I blame you.

    • Jus_Wonderin

      BTF, I am sure I should know this. Where are you in TX? I am in Dallas.

      • BaldarTFlagass

        My condolences. I habitate San Antonio. However, the Casa de Flagass is located 25 miles north of town, and therefore only a hop, skip, and a half-jump from everone's favorite Texas town.

        • under_score

          Liar. Lubbock is more than 25 miles from San Antonio!

  • IncenseDebate

    You forgot Poland.

  • SaintRond

    I can tell by the photo that I would so get laid there.

    • http://facethesuncastnoshadow.wordpress.com/ Mumbletypeg

      If no one shows up there with stories as good as yours, I will have to page you. "PAGING SAINT ROND!!"…

  • http://simplyleftbehind.blogspot.com/ actor212

    September 13, huh?

    I'm getting my hair done that day.

    Actually, I'm moving to Austin.

    • Jus_Wonderin

      Actor, are you running from the law, or Rebecca?

      • http://simplyleftbehind.blogspot.com/ actor212

        I'm letting her chase me, and doing other posters the favor of getting the drinky thingy in their home towns.

        I'll probably go. You know, if I don't find someone something better to do…

    • under_score

      Sorry, no can do. actor512 already lives there.

      • HistoriCat

        I laughed so hard I cried – bravo.

      • http://simplyleftbehind.blogspot.com/ actor212

        Dibs on actor737!

  • prommie

    What am I, chopped liver? You give Actor 212 a shout out but I know I am the biggest fucking whiner around here. Fuck you, I'm gonna come to all of them, I am gonna follow the Wonkette tour like one of those Greatful Dead trustafarians!

    • http://simplyleftbehind.blogspot.com/ actor212

      Can you drive a railroad spike with your penis?

      That's when you get the shout-out

  • BlueStateLibel

    What's wrong with New Jersey? Are all you hip New Yorkers afraid you'll get bridge-and-tunnel disease if you come over here?

    • HistoriCat

      Probably just afraid Gov. Crisco will eat them.

    • bibliotequetress

      Enough with the STDs already.

  • PlanetWingNut
