Attention DC Reasonoids

|

The citizens of the breakaway republic of Grylliade—insightful Hit and Run commenters all—are having a get-together this Saturday. Here's the invite:

Come celebrate our nation's birthday with people who remember what inalienable rights are!

Join posters thoreau, Mr. Nice Guy, mk, coelakanth, grylliade, Ellie, Sandy, linguist, and Reason staffers …….. at 7 p.m., Saturday, July 1 at The Big Hunt (1345 Connecticut Ave. NW). Ask for the "H&R/Grylliade" party.

By decree of the organizers, all conversational disagreements shall be settled the old-fashioned way: billiards.

Nothing says "celebrating America" like a bar full of terrifying kitsch from the scramble for Africa.

  1. Lucky Bar was our first choice but they said they wouldn’t have room for us.

    Anyway, we have a private patio, tiki bar, pool table. Please come if you can!

    Thanks for posting that, David. Will any of you staffers be in attendance?

  2. I won’t; I’m in Los Angeles and then Idaho until the 5th of July. But have a great time.

  3. What area of Idaho? The panhandle region is quite amazing this time of year.

  4. I’ll bring the corn syrup. Somebody want to bring some owls?

  5. This is nasty, but I just realized that if you say, “The Big Hunt, the Big Hunt, the Big Hunt, the Big Hunt” really, really fast over and over, it sounds like you are harshly dissing a lady.

  6. So, which Reason staffer or staffers will be there?

    Or did we scare them all away?

  7. Sigh…Could really use an event like this in the Sacramento (California) area…

  8. If y’all are staying late, I may drop by….

  9. Is Julian going to get a Star Jones moment in the sun?

  10. What area of Idaho? The panhandle region is quite amazing this time of year.

    Shhhhh… Don’t tell anyone.

  11. Shhhhh… Don’t tell anyone.

    It’s too late. Most of California already knows. The wasteland buffer zone (Nevada) is no longer working properly.

  12. That couldn’t possibly have been an old H&R thread. The conversation was polite and respectful.

  13. If y’all are staying late, I may drop by….

    If past get-togethers are any indication, then we’ll be there late, Matt. Please stop by!

  14. Would love to be there but am out of town. Sink an 8 ball for me.

  15. That couldn’t possibly have been an old H&R thread. The conversation was polite and respectful.

    Of course it was, you stupid moron! What the hell is wrong with you?

  17. Dammit. I was in DC last weekend, and there was NOTHING. Weekend before, weekend after, sure.

    No, I went to DC and all I got was soaked to the skin trying to pay my respects to Mr. Jefferson.

    The new WWII memorial is awfully nice, though. Looks like it was there all along at the end of the reflecting pool between the Lincoln and Washington monuments.

  18. Did someone say you’d be whapping each other with cue sticks?

  19. Did someone say you’d be whapping each other with cue sticks?

    Only partially. They’re not going to full cue.

  20. Only partially. They’re not going to full cue.

    *stunned speechless*

  21. It’s too late. Most of California already knows. The wasteland buffer zone (Nevada) is no longer working properly.

    Still, we can try to use southern Idaho (additional wasteland) to keep them from reaching that awful, awful northern Idaho where no one would ever want to go ’cause it sucks so bad.

  22. Stevo Darkly,
    Do you have a vacation coming up pretty soon?
    (You may be showing signs. Don’t make us have to “intervene.”)

  23. Still, we can try to use southern Idaho (additional wasteland) to keep them from reaching that awful, awful northern Idaho where no one would ever want to go ’cause it sucks so bad.

    After my first year in Moscow after moving up from Boise (amid the Southern wasteland), Northern Idaho isn’t so ba…this place is awful; don’t come here.

  24. I thought Northern Idaho was where all the AN types hang out …

    Or is that just a rumor to keep out the riff raff?

    It’s true, but they were bankrupted and lost their big, fancy compound at Hayden Lake. That’s what happens after your guards beat the shit out of people and you lose a massive lawsuit.

  26. “The new WWII memorial is awfully nice, though. Looks like it was there all along at the end of the reflecting pool between the Lincoln and Washington monuments.”

    That’s good to hear. There was a lot of concern.

    Is the little pond with Independence Island still there?

  27. Alright everybody…I just got confirmed with the bar. If you’re in town, plese join us!
