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.
