Philly Events

April 17, 2008 at 6:33 pm (John Mayer, Philly stuff)

Are there any Philly folks who are interested in getting together for Tequila Con 08? If you don’t know what it is, please read this. I plan to attend and Metalmom will be there as well.

Please email the author of the website and let her know you will attend and then email me so that I know and can plan to meet you.

6:00 pm – ?
Philadelphia, PA

As far as I know, there will be no bowling unless you reserve a lane. I believe everyone will be getting together in a room. If you want dinner, I believe there is a restaurant in the building. Basically, just mingling and meeting folks is what we’ll be doing.
———————————————-
I was also wondering who would be interested in getting together to visit some murals, visit the Zoo, or whatever good idea pops up. Last fall, Metalmom, her friend and I went on a mural tour. We had a blast and I know she wants to do the same this year. We also mentioned the Zoo on our last trip, since we drove past it on our tour. I haven’t been to the Zoo since I was in 2nd grade so I would love the trip.

How about a ghost tour of Old City? Or a tour of Eastern Penitentiary?

Philly is chuck full of stuff to do. Who’s in? Please let me know if you’re interested, what you would like to do and some weekend dates that you would be free. If you don’t want to meet any of the other bloggers, that’s fine. If you want to go as a small/big group, let me know.
————————————–
AND one more thing, John Mayer will be here on July 10 and so far I believe Lori and I are going. We’ll probably meet up at some point but we’re going to enjoy the show. I also love the fact that Colbie Caillat will be there. Two for the price of one, you can’t beat that.

    I saw booze and got excited!

    More murals and the Zoo sounds like a blast! But if you try to get too friendly with the orangutans, I will leave your ass!

    Just letting you know!

    we could sneak booze into the Zoo if you want. we could also get some of the animals drunk.

    Do you think they would throw us out?

    Sorry, I screwed up by having two blogs open at the same time and the comments got posted to the wrong blogs.

    I was telling you about my trip to the San Diego Zoo, but I will save it for another day.

    Coffeypot, I have your San Diego story, I’ll post it. It was funny!

    Couldn’t you wash the uniform??!?!?!

    Comment from Coffeypot:

    Are you on the Philadelphia Tourism Board now? But if you go to the booze party, call me if you get drunk. Don’t want you drinking and driving. No questions ask; no excuses needed. I just want you to be safe and happy.

    The zoo sound like fun, too. But I’m not sure I want to go with friends. Back in the day, I went to the San Diego Zoo with some ‘friends’ – shipmates – and we were looking at the gorilla in the cage. They were standing behind me, slowly backing up, and making faces and arm movements that agitated the gorilla and he threw a handful of shit and it hit me – in my white sailor uniform. They though that was hilarious as did the guards at the gate at the base. It’s funny how Marine guards can laugh with a frown on their face. Anyway, I had to strip down to my skivvies and throw them away. They didn’t want gorilla shit on their base. I had to take the base bus back to the pier in my skivvies and my white hat. But my ‘friends’ got a good laugh out of it. I do too, now.

    Thank you, Teri. And no, I couldn’t wash them because they wouldn’t let the uniform on the base.

    I got plenty of evil looks on the bus from the zoo to the base, too. I didn’t smell like old spice.

    I had to mess cook for two weeks afterward, too, for coming back to the ship out of uniform. That was okay, though, because that could have put me on report and punished me more severely. This way it wasn’t in my personal file.

    Mess cook is a tour in the mess area where you serve the crew at meals and wash the trays and cups and utensils afterward. I was called Ape Shit for awhile too.

    OMG, that SanDiego story was great!!

    I wish I was closer to Philly. Maybe you can visit your sister and we can do a western state event?

    I would love to see John Mayer. I’ll have to see when he’s here.

    Thanks for this post. I got me thinking about how I have no social life and need to make one for myself!!

    I’ll bring the Chimpy Champagne and you can bring the Babboon Brandy!

  11. WILLIAM said,

    That looks like fun…..but I know I wont be able to make it.

  12. Dick Small said,

    I just know you guys picked Philly because I wouldn’t be able to make it, then. Well, congratulations. Congratulations on once again not including Dick Small in your plans. I hope you have a great time, you heartless bastards…..
    And don’t bother changing your plans to New York. I’m busy then, with something. I don’t need your charity.

  13. Dick Small said,

    … of course, if it was that important to you all, and you wanted to all chip in for my gas money and motel expenses, I might reconsider.

  14. Lori said,

    I’m in for the mural tour, and I think Cayman would be interested, too.

  15. Lori said,

    …and the Zoo!

  16. Finn said,

    I’ll be at TequilaCon… I wanna go to the zoo…

  17. Teri said,

    Dick, I had no input on the location. But, considering you and Jen had your concert in North Jersey and didn’t invite me…..we’re about even.

  18. Hilly said,

    I”’ be at TequilaCon….look forward to meeting you 🙂

    I get to Philly about Noon on Sat. I would love to go to the zoo! And see the murals!
