Speaking of "journalism through whiskey," there will be a 7 p.m. Happy Hour event Thursday at the Continental Lounge in Rosslyn, Va. -- just across the Potomac from D.C. -- and if you haven't been personally invited, feel free to show up anyway.To which Joe Marier replied:
Bloggers, journalists, fat cats, bigwigs, congressional staffers, congressional mistresses, lobbyists, interns, hookers, policy wonks, oppo researchers, "senior administration officials," two-faced backstabbing GOP political operatives -- everyone should consider themselves invited.
I can't make the Continental event, alas; I have tickets to see the Rifftrax show at Tysons Corner.You might have achieved maximum geekdom if . . . well, NTTAWWT.
So while Joe is sitting in a theater full of guys who spent too much time as children playing with the Gilbert DeLuxe Chemistry Lab they got for their 8th birthdays, I expect to be shooting pool with the guys who cheerfully suffered strange rashes as adolescents . . .
Here's to you, Tonya, wherever you are!
