There will, of course, be food and drink tonight. Here's the skinny:

We've got a nice catered spread planned at East Burn. Food will be coming out in two rounds, one at about 7 and a second round around 9. The menu includes:

Crostini Trio (3 choices)
-Sausage, Sauerkraut, spicy mustard
-Gorgonzola, honey, fresh fruit
-Chevre, strawberries, toasted hazelnuts

Mini quiches (3 choices)
-Roasted red pepper, spinach, fontina
-Wild mushroom, ham
-Bacon, broccoli, cheddar

- Baked Brie with Marionberry compote and puffed pastry
- Tequila marinated shrimp with mango chutney
- Marinated beef kabobs
- Mixed green salad with choice of dressings on side
- Red wine, white wine, and bubbles

We'll also be getting beer by the pitcher to save folks from having to stand in line out at the bar as much as possible.

There will also be donuts.

There may also be some beans.

That menu is double wicked awesome. It does, however, serve to further confirm my growing suspicion that I am not classy enough for this party.

beans with no serving spoon, and people are just sort of standing there, awkwardly looking at them

I am heartbroken to report that I have downgraded my status to "maybe." I have a child care dilemma -- wife called in to work, mother-in-law out of town, and I can't drive a 3 month old down to spend a night away from his mother hanging out with degenerates the likes of you people. I'm a bad father, but not that bad.

So unless baby sitting comes through, I will be attending the official Seattle meetup. It's taking place in my living room. There's only one other person attending and he's kind of a noob, but he's a great conversationalist, and he doesn't mind if I drink all the beer.

Any other Seattleites that might want to do a last minute beer at a kid friendly pub, I'd love to hang out. MeMail me.

Clearly this is what Jobs was meant for. Heh.

Seriously, that sucks, SB.

I wil move heaven and earth to get there, for at least a couple of minutes, perhaps a little early. but since I am getting married at 6:30pm at peninsula park, it may be a bit difficult. If I make it I will be wearing a tuxedo.

Slarty, that's a huge bummer. Nice of the kid to let you drink all the beer, though.

Bring the ceremony to the Burn, msalt!

Wait, no...
