If you live west of the Mississippi you need to hitchhike, bus, or yellow cab it to Portland, Oregon, on March 10th for TequilaCon 2007. You shouldn't need a reason (I mean a reason besides this) to visit the best city in the world, but if you do, a group of crazy bloggers will be meeting for drinks at McMenamins Kennedy School at 7:00 that night. Kennedy School is a bar, hotel, restaurant, movie theater, brewery, and more in an old, restored elementary school. There's a cigar bar in the detention room, and the guestrooms have chalkboards. It's unique and fun and a great place to hang. This is an open invitation, anyone can come, so don't think you can skip out just because you're not one of the cool kids. I don't know anyone who is going (know in the three-dimensional sense), but I can't think of a single reason to turn down a drink with fellow bloggers.
And don't make me say that if I can drag myself from NEW YORK to Portland, surely none of you people have an excuse remotely good enough to miss it. As a matter of fact, you people east of the Mississippi need to be there, too.
Jenny at Run, Jen, Run has the details (and a very convincing list of pros and cons) here. (Graphic by Dave, who seems to have more talent in one little finger than the rest of us have all put together.)
And if you can't come, that's cool, I understand. But know that we're going to talk about you behind your back.
Update: I just received the updated list from Jenny and there are 40 nutty bloggers attending so far. You know you want to!
