(Bring your own tofus.)
We shall meet at Picnic Area A at Mt. Tabor Park, because that is the only area we can readily make out on this verkakte map. We shall eat and drink and play “Throw the Baby” from let us call it 5 to 8 p.m.
“Editrix, why are you going to Portland instead of coming to visit me in Amundsen-Scott, South Pole,” you are probably asking right about now, funk soul brothers. Well, we will get to the South Pole EVENTUALLY, and if you are on the way from northwest Montana to Portland, you can put in a request for us to come visit you personal, because we are the greatest, most reader-oriented of all the for-profit, ad-free, people-funded, neoliberal shill liberal news sites and recipe hubs. Josh Marshall does not pull his sailboat into your driveway in Louisville, Kentucky. Matt Yglesias does not wheel his ATV into wherever people drive ATV’s. (He also probably does not have an ATV.)
Also, this time we just feel like going to Portland, because it is full of such good wonkers they seize the means of drinky-thing production and throw them themselves!
You probably really should just buy a hat.
Ok, see you next Monday, Portland pals!
(To recap: Mon., May 8, 5-8 p.m. at Picnic Area A at Mt. Tabor Park. We will bring meats for barbecuing! You could bring a treat to share! Like MAYBE JUST SPITBALLING a tomato bruschetta from your garden that will knock my socks off! YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE.)
All other wonkers, COMMENCE TO CRYIN’! In this, your OPEN THREAD!
