This House Supports The Right To Party!!

Hey everyone!

Sad news, and I quote:

"Some abrupt recent developments mean that I'm going to have to move back to the UK in mid October. I'm only going to be around for the next two debates, then I'll be whisked away to the land of universal health care." --Robert Loughney, Sept. 4 via Gmail.

Drat! And I almost learned how to pronounce his last name. *Sigh*

We will miss his Shakespearian renditions of impassioned points and defenses. He was brave enough to take on points and counterpoints diametrically opposed to his actual beliefs, and clever enough at times to make us believe that he believed his beliefs! Someone put this guy in a hedge fund ...

Anyhow, though we can't tie him to a U.S. flag pole, we can at least all agree (FOR ONCE!) on one thing: This House Supports The Right To Party!!

If you can and will support this (and shame on you if you won't ... OK, OK. My bad, very last-minute planning on my part), please join us for one last hurrah with Robert (Lock-Knee vs. Lauf-Knee ... DEBATE!) at our favorite watering hole:

The Irish Bank
10 Mark Lane
San Francisco, CA
**Psst. I'll be getting there early at 6:40ish to ensure the Bank doesn't cheat us--like sooooo many have ... just kidding--out of our rightful place on the patio. It's gonna be a hot one, so leave your Pomeranians at home in the A/C!**

Call me directly on my cell if you wish (Roxanne[masked]) for more information or just to trade useless barbs with each other, particularly if they are about Robert. Because he's leaving us (traitor!) and we need to properly sully his reputation before he leaves American soil (pun intended).

ACTION: Be prepared to share your favorite memory or quality about Robert with the rest of the group. That's your only homework this week. No hours (or minutes) spent cramming arguments from web sites into your brain. Just nice things. Over and out.

    Nice going-away party for Robert, a relative newcomer to the group who is greatly appreciated for doing a tremendous amount of work very skillfully in all the most important SFDebate roles of organizer, moderator, and speaker. A lot more people turned out tonight than RSVP'd. It was a rare hot evening in the city, so the only space left at the Irish Bank was inside. We didn't want to sit inside, so we moved down the street to SAM'S GRILL; I mention this because I don't want the wrong establishment to be blamed for a lousy waitress. I think I was the only person who took a photo, which I tried to upload to this website, until I found that only organizers & assistant organizers are allowed to upload photos here.

    We wouldn't let one lousy (and I mean, horrible, lowest-of-the-low lousy) waitress ruin our night now would we, party people? Robert Lock-Knees, you will be missed. Thanks everyone for making it a fabulous night in our sporadically balmy evening light!

    Hi friends!

    Wow, talk about a turnout. We literally got twice as many people to party as had RSVP'ed! That's an overwhelming success, if I don't say so myself. But I do.

    For those of you who inquired about the Hacks/Hackers meetup that Rob Ennals and I belong to, here is the next event on Monday: http://meetup.hackshackers.com/calendar/14866264/

    Hope we can get a little co-interest brewing so we can also grow our regulars in this group! Thanks. See you in two weeks I hope.

    Haha. That would be great, if we could get there early. I'm personally stuck at work until the very last minute, so I still will be there around 6:40. If you're up for it, Hannah, go for it!!
