Meet you on the dark side of the moon?

Double dip:  late night happy hour + viewing the total lunar eclipse.  A total lunar eclipse takes place when the moon passes in to the Earth's shadow and appears a reddish color due to light-bending and shining through the Earth's atmosphere.  The eclipse should start just before 11pm and last until after 1am.

At the appropriate time, we will walk over to the parking lot (on the other side of Louisiana Ave) and take in the spectacle.  Bring a telescope or a pair of binoculars if you have them.  If you want, you can wear you binoculars to the event--let's see if any other Bendites are paying attention.

Late nite Happy hour begins at 10pm.

    Thank you, Tom, for your generosity and stories of mothers and monkeys. It was also nice to meet the new and interesting people.
    Now, anyone for paintball?

    So fun, even though there was only eerie mist to howl at. Had my first Flaming Spanish Coffee. Incredible!
    1-2 ounces 151-proof rum
    1-2 Kahlua,
    About 3 ounces brewed coffee
    Enough lemon juice to rim the glass
    Enough sugar to rim the glass
    Several pinches ground cinnamon and nutmeg
    Whipped cream topping

    Teena, nice to meet you and your mom (Carol). Well, everyone, we were there--whilst there was no blood moon, we did in fact witness a total lunar eclipse. It was a bit anticlimactic due to the cloud cover; nevertheless, we were there for the experience. Good turnout tonight. Lots of fun around the firepits as usual, even though Bruce crashed the party. ;)

      Thankfully, I did, as it appeared all who attended were quite bored --- that is, until I arrived to add some levity to the event. ;-) You are very welcome, Tom ... And yes, it was a pleasure as always to attend and to ensure your event was successful. ;-)
