The Bloggerational Ball: An Update Where We Make It FREE! (so come)

It’s like this…The Bloggerational Ball Committee has gotten elevenity nine emails from people saying, “Wish we could come, because we heart the Obaminator, but we are broke-ass due to these rough economic times.” And guess what? WE HEARD YOU. The new POTUS and his administration are all about Hope and Change and Egalitarianism and Saving Your 401K. And we’re on board. So, we thought, why not be the ultimate embodiment of that message? Why not show our support of El Presidente via booze and a party that’s open to everybody and most importantly, FREE? As in COSTS YOU NO MONEY!!!!!!

In changing this to a zero cost of admission event, we were unable to rework the arrangement with Bourbon, our original location. No hard feelings towards Bourbon and their management – they remain a great place to get your booze on and soak it up with bite of food – it just didn’t work.

In the Spirit of Obama, we tossed the old game plan and came up with a new one:

We are going to congregate on the second floor of the Reef in our dress up clothes (hells bells we still want you to wear your ball clothes). Katherine is still going to campaign for Ball Queen and will be taking photos for her drunkie documentary. LiLu will be brining tatertots from home and nomnomnoming away. If you can pry one out of her fists, you can have one. And Restaurant Refugee will be in a tux. And probably a Zoro mask to hide his secret identity. And drinking champagne. The only thing that has changed really is the cost and the location (and the perks, but whatever, the booze will still be flowing).

Come on out and BarRock the Party with us, kittens!

    I’m going to keep my breastesses, which I am told are lovely, in my shirt. But I may be sporting a new tie! Look for the dapper dyke in the natty suit with the double-Windsor knotted tie. I’ll be giving the men tie tying lessons for money. I’m a whore that way.

    Um, how much? Cause tie tying knowledge is handy.

  5. Maxie Says:

    So I DO want to come, but I can’t imagine trying to make it into the city that weekend. I will ask my magic 8 ball later and get back to you 🙂

    Will Maxie come? Magic 8 Ball says outlook good.

    I’m sure hoping my fairy godmother shows up by Sunday, cuz I don’t have a dress to where to the ball…. although I might be able to throw something together. Would this work?

    What’s it worth to you? Oh, never mind. For you: free. But for everyone else $20.

    That’s love.
