Bitter-Palooza 2009

By Wyatt Earp | July 27, 2009

Philly Blog MeetOur took place yesterday at the Langhorne, PA Cheeseburger in Paradise. Everyone who is anyone – plus Captain America – in the local blog world was in attendance. Sebastian was there in all of his gun blogging glory, playing the gracious co-host. You would think that a blogger who gets as many hits as Sebastian wouldn’t be seen dead with a hack like me, but I figure Bitter didn’t tell him I was coming. Heh.

The Captain and I finally met . That’s not a burn; I just figured he’d be older. Nice guy, and pretty damned funny. We laughed a lot.

Cheeseburger in Paradise was nice enough to reserve the outdoor patio for us, which was nice. The bonus there was that we didn’t have to mingle with the common people. I am much too important to be seen with the peasants, ya know? Although, I was plenty happy to mingle with some Land Shark Lager. Not every one of us was so inclined, however. Take a look at what Captain America ordered:

Girlie Drink

Yeah, that is what most men would call a girlie drink. It is a strawberry margarita, and while it looked pretty good, the sight of the big, bad firefighter drinking it was even better. Heh.

We talked about everything from guns to movies, and laughed at politicians, celebrities, and each other. In between, we got to know our table mates: from American Manifesto, who is currently “trapped” in New Jersey. I loved that line. Dave from Blog O’ Stuff, Cemetery from Cemetery’s Gun Blob, and Geek With A .45 – They had a great conversation about the mayor of Jersey City, New Jersey, who appears to be a bigger tool than Philly’s Michael Nutter. Unreal.

They are all great bloggers, but more importantly, they are better people.

Thanks folks, for inviting me along for the ride!!

    1. Wish I could have gone.
    2. Being trapped in NJ is better than being trapped in North Philly.
    3. Every politician in NJ is a tool.
    4. And the drink??? The good captain is about to go to Europe…that’s all I’m saying.

    Jersey City in the house.

    My Mayor can get drunk and naked faster than your Mayor.

    That’s actually all the money I saved with Geico. It allows me to buy more drinks! Up the Irons!

    Doghouse – Don’t make me come down there! Captain America is considering a Philly-palooza, too – open to bloggers and readers. Maybe we can have a traveling freak show?

    Smite – When I saw the Kosovo shirt, I figured it was your brother’s or a friend’s. No way you could have served there!

    Bitter – Agreed.

    RT – Yeah, Italy has a lot of those fruity drinks. And I mean drinks for fruits, not with them.

    CGB – Not bet! Yours is much worse than mine!

    Captain – And you left the tequila shot sitting there. For shame.

    I’da rolled over, even though I’ve retired from blogging, if I weren’t off on vacation with the clan. Glad it was good, Wyatt.
