Blogfest-2011 fall edition

It was so much fun the last 3 times we are going to do it again.

The next blogger meetup will be Friday September 23rd at Rooney's Irish Pub 67 S. Main St. Pittston, PA 18704 starting at 6PM.

Our political bloggers from Luzerne and Lackawanna counties will be there along with our readers, commenter's and people who are just interested in local politics. We should also have many candidates and their supporters.

You don't have to blog about about politics to attend as we welcome everyone who blogs. If you're listed on NEPA Blogs this is the place to be.

The promotion of this event is a bit behind schedule because of the flooding that has impacted just about everybody involved but there should be a good turnout. I'll do my best to get the word out and expect my blog buddies to do the same.

There are 3 rules to the event.

1. No Speeches

2. You must wear clothes even it is warm.

3. Agree to disagree but don't be disagreeable.

There is no charge for admission.

With all that is going on, dont you think it may be a good idea to push this to October some time?

No. Like any event it involves some planning. This date was agreed on a few weeks ago. Life goes on.

October belongs to the candidates and the baseball playoffs.

May you never experience the complete loss of both your home and business, how fucking heartless you are!

Honestly guys, you can't reschedule? You're not having this thing at the Ritz-Carlton; it is some little bar in Pistol City. While I don't agree with the language, I do agree with the sentiment of the above poster. My God how self-centered are you people?
I would be very disgusted to see one elected official out glad-handing at this even, in a place so near to such a disaster zone as W. Pittston.
I can't wait to read your recap so I know who NOT to vote for.
