Happy Hour today

The next blogger/candidate meetup will be tonight at Rooney's Irish Pub 67 S. Main St. Pittston, PA 18704 starting at 5PM. There is big bar area with tables off to the side and plenty of free parking across the street where the Tomato Festival is held.

It looks like we will have another good turnout. Just about every PA State Senate and State House candidate and/or supporters in Luzerne and Lackawanna counties will be attending. That includes Republicans, Democrats, Libertarians and Pastafarians. We will have at least 2 members of the 111th United States Congress as our special guests along with a few people who want to replace them and representatives from the statewide campaigns. I have some definite maybes from the hopefuls themselves.

Our political bloggers from Luzerne and Lackawanna counties will be there along with our readers, commenters and people who are just interested in local politics. The public is invited.

This is an informal mixer with no speeches scheduled. There is no charge for admission.

This event is sanctioned by the Northeast Blogging Council and the Saturday OT Committee and Operatic Society.

Our last mega meetup was a huge success that got some great local press coverage.

Candidates meet the faces behind the screen names

The great thing about an event like this is that we can talk politics and agree to disagree without being disagreeable.

Like I said before, if that GORT guy is going...I'm not going!
