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

by Rebecca Schoenkopf

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.

Seriously, DC- the 8th- when I will be in Philly! and Philly the 11th when I will be back in DC! Do it Friday night the 7th- I don't leave until Sat. morning!

Stay in Philly a few days longer!

Great night in DC on the 8th! Wonkette meetup followed by Bob Mould or Mission of Burma (your choice)!

Yay Atlanta! I think we need Havana Club rum!

Spurning Beer July 29, 2012 at 9:48 pm

Atlanta is s five-hour schlepp, but Mrs. Beer reacted positively when I brought up the possibility.

Rebecca, you are invited to come to Boston for Election Boxer Day on Nov 7, when we can celebrate our many victories from the night before (yay, Liz!). Or get pissed, drunk, malicious, dress up as Indians and throw our civil rights in the Boston Harbor.

johnnyzhivago July 29, 2012 at 3:41 pm

Great, I've got 2 months to save up the trainfare to get to New York City!

Will there be hats and party favors as shown in the publicity photo above?

I figured she misspelled it.

I commented on this before, but I traveled up to DC for my daughter's 21st birthday three years ago this week, and we went to Madam's Organ for dinner. You can't know how proud a papa I was to sing along with "Here I Am, Baby" by Al Green with my little girl, half schnockered.

Only half? Come on back, and we'll give you another chance. Also too, happy father's day.

Mumbletypeg July 29, 2012 at 5:34 pm

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.

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 July 29, 2012 at 7:15 pm

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

actor212 July 30, 2012 at 8:59 am

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

mrblifil July 30, 2012 at 9:38 am

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

sewollef July 30, 2012 at 1:10 pm

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.

actor212 July 30, 2012 at 2:14 pm

Ohhhh, and then the key lime pie place!

NYNYNYjr July 30, 2012 at 11:33 pm

10 min from you. It's like a weird train and bus ride, or a weird train and ferry then bus ride, depending on where you are. LAME

sewollef July 30, 2012 at 1:12 pm

Nah, Bushwick's far too close to Queens.

IncenseDebate July 30, 2012 at 1:16 pm

Everything is far to close to Queens.

That is all.

Preferred Customer July 30, 2012 at 9:17 am

I say Staten Island. And let's make it a fund raiser for Mindy Meyer. If you are going to do irony, DO IRONY.

actor212 July 30, 2012 at 9:44 am

You've given me an idear….

102415 July 30, 2012 at 7:27 pm

I'm in and I'm in the East Village. I love Red Hook and the ferry or any place you want. I actually do look like the lady in the black dress so I will need a reminder and a car service and another reminder. 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.

kittensdontlie July 29, 2012 at 4:36 pm

Mumbletypeg July 29, 2012 at 4:51 pm

I will donate to this cause. I feel the stars have aligned for the DC date to fall on a weekend. 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.
* any suggestions how to entice him to join the festivities are welcome. I suspect his time overseas put him in touch w/ enough experiences to temper one's perspective, as I know living overseas did for me at that age, enough to feel one had "outgrown" certain past endeavors~

1. That's CORRECT Coast to you – not Right Coast;

2. There is a conspicuous lack of Boston on this list.

Any news was good news
And the feeling was bad at home
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
Bring back the Boston Rag

MG, perhaps you can get the Editrix attention if you can work with Marcus and put together a surprise party for She1ey. 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. Also too, She1ey should find taking a dip outdoors at that time of year downright refreshing.

She didn't forget. That's why the guy in the hat is so happy.

Excuse me while I go bleach those thoughts out of my brain.

It always looks like she forgot to put her eye in, if you ask me.

ElPinche July 29, 2012 at 11:06 pm

That would be fun. I'm thinking Wonkette is a little reluctant. There's a bunch of crazy ass Austinites up in here, and it might end with arrests and deportations.

chascates July 29, 2012 at 11:27 pm

Wasn't there a gal from Waco back several years ago? I hope the Baptists didn't absorb her.

ttommyunger July 29, 2012 at 7:32 pm

Well, you can play it safe in Atlanta and have it in Little Five Points, where nobody is judged-regardless. You can have it in Buckhead or North Highlands, where everybody is just too fucking refined to be rude, or you can party in the Belly of the Beast, my hangout in Cobb (Whitebread) County, in Marietta (Whiter-Bread) at Mulligans (Shit-Kicker Biker Bar where everybody but me hates the "Bammer"). I promise to be on hand (to referee, mostly) and it won't be your average soiree, ladles and germs, you can be sure of that.

Nothingisamiss July 29, 2012 at 8:51 pm

ttommy, don't go putting ideas into anyone's head about going out to Cobb Co. It's too far for me to drive drunk and to redneck for me to say the word democrat.

ttommyunger July 29, 2012 at 10:22 pm

I'll drive you home, I don't drink. I'm Liberal, but I can barely say the word Democrat without throwing up in my own mouth. I consider them only minimally less sold-out the the Repugs.

Somebody's been borrowing teh meth from his biker buddies…

ttommyunger July 30, 2012 at 8:28 am

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

Nothingisamiss July 30, 2012 at 11:09 am

It may be an obvious choice, but I do love me some Manuel's. I remember watching the Quayle/Bentson VP debate there. Racous drunken times were had by all.

Negropolis July 30, 2012 at 1:55 am

ttommyunger July 30, 2012 at 6:58 am

Or, you can call 404 372 9907 (with a little advance notice) and get a ride there and back, free, of course.

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.

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

SayItWithWookies July 30, 2012 at 12:27 pm

Shhhh.

DrunkIrishman July 29, 2012 at 8:35 pm

Is that H.W. Bush?

Nothingisamiss July 29, 2012 at 8:55 pm

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 July 29, 2012 at 9:27 pm

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

cmputrwizard July 29, 2012 at 9:52 pm

What about MYRTLE BEACH???

To hell with Charlotte.

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

Tribbz July 29, 2012 at 9:57 pm

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 July 30, 2012 at 8:12 am

God understands.

102415 July 30, 2012 at 7:45 pm

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

Fraudulently_Joe July 29, 2012 at 10:01 pm

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!!!)

Self-Uploader July 30, 2012 at 1:53 am

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

Millennial Malaise July 30, 2012 at 11:05 am

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 July 30, 2012 at 7:48 pm

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 July 29, 2012 at 10:49 pm

No Austin? What a bummer.

OneYieldRegular July 30, 2012 at 1:08 am

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 July 30, 2012 at 1:41 am

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

/fixed

Self-Uploader July 30, 2012 at 1:51 am

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 July 30, 2012 at 4:34 am

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

They're great.

finallyhappy July 30, 2012 at 6:49 am

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 July 30, 2012 at 11:14 am

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

Redgyal July 30, 2012 at 6:51 am

Looks like someone forgot the third coast.

HistoriCat July 30, 2012 at 10:38 am

She's forgetting it as hard as possible.

Redgyal July 30, 2012 at 1:31 pm

I don't understand why……..

TootsStansbury July 30, 2012 at 7:28 am

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 July 30, 2012 at 8:07 am

So, the Texas shunning continues.

Not that I blame you.

Jus_Wonderin July 30, 2012 at 9:29 am

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

BaldarTFlagass July 30, 2012 at 9:34 am

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 July 30, 2012 at 10:31 am

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

IncenseDebate July 30, 2012 at 8:17 am

You forgot Poland.

SaintRond July 30, 2012 at 8:36 am

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

Mumbletypeg July 30, 2012 at 10:11 am

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

actor212 July 30, 2012 at 8:55 am

September 13, huh?

I'm getting my hair done that day.

Actually, I'm moving to Austin.

Jus_Wonderin July 30, 2012 at 9:27 am

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

actor212 July 30, 2012 at 9:46 am

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 July 30, 2012 at 10:22 am

Sorry, no can do. actor512 already lives there.

HistoriCat July 30, 2012 at 10:45 am

I laughed so hard I cried – bravo.

actor212 July 30, 2012 at 2:15 pm

Dibs on actor737!

prommie July 30, 2012 at 9:47 am

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!

actor212 July 30, 2012 at 2:16 pm

Can you drive a railroad spike with your penis?

That's when you get the shout-out

BlueStateLibel July 30, 2012 at 10:24 am

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 July 30, 2012 at 10:46 am

Probably just afraid Gov. Crisco will eat them.

bibliotequetress July 30, 2012 at 12:56 pm

Enough with the STDs already.

PlanetWingNut July 30, 2012 at 10:46 am

we need a wonkette facebook page so we can know what people look like and stuff..or is that most of the fun? BUT WILL KEN BE AT ANY OF THESE PLACES WITH THE BANHAMMER I HEAR ITS BIG!

Pres.Beeblebrox July 30, 2012 at 11:45 am

Hope to see y'all in Philadelphia on the day on which we must all NEVAR 4GET – NEVAR 4GIVE!!!!!1

Tommy1733 July 30, 2012 at 2:22 pm

Please come to Bloomington Indiana – you'll love it here.

fuflans July 31, 2012 at 12:39 am

chicago is still pissed.

don't piss off chicago.

chascates July 29, 2012 at 11:28 pm

Well, maybe commiegirl can make it in the fall sometime or we'll have our own whingding with LIVE BLOGGING!!!!

HistoriCat July 29, 2012 at 11:42 pm

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.

Barb_ July 30, 2012 at 12:05 am

I would be greatly honored to share a cold beer with you and have some laughs, Chascates.

chascates July 29, 2012 at 11:56 pm

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.

Barb_ July 30, 2012 at 12:20 am

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.

HistoriCat July 30, 2012 at 12:05 am

October Wonkette headline : "Wonketteers deny involvement in latest fire at Governor's Mansion"

Jeffer July 30, 2012 at 1:53 am

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.

Steverino247 July 30, 2012 at 10:12 am

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

HistoriCat July 30, 2012 at 10:36 am

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.

Barb_ July 30, 2012 at 2:13 am

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.

Boojum July 30, 2012 at 8:52 am

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'm sorry that I offended you, really and truly.

Cranky old farts need a clue; maybe a smiley face. Had a hard day yesterday, sorry, my bad.Sent from my iPhone

Boojum July 30, 2012 at 9:31 am

Sorry. "Teh meth" was supposed to be the reveal.

I hereby owe you one drink of your choice, with an option to renew.

Edit: Oops. You don't drink. Well, damn.

ttommyunger July 30, 2012 at 9:37 am

Big spender! You know I'm a tee-totaller, right? ;)Sent from my iPhone
