Announcing a new Meetup for The Anti-Social Social (ASS) Club!
What: Swingin' Blues Festival at Linganore Wineries
When: August 29,[masked]:30 AM
Where: (A location has not been chosen yet.)
Great way to end the summer - from 12-3 it's The Kelly Bell Band and from 3:30 - 6:30 it's The Nighthawks. Beautiful winery - lovely grounds to walk and also tours of the winery will be given. There will be other groups, undoubtedly, which will be having meetups here - yes! There WILL be a lot of people here!!! However, we can create our own ASS Enclave.
It may be time for...an ASS Banner...that we may proudly fly our colors and mark out our turf.http://www.linganore-wine.com/eventspage_august.html#august2007
I will most likely be bringing my 15-year-old (he's a VD Laser Tag/ASS Mike Game Night Veteran) and anyone under 18 is free - this could be a great chance to bring your kids.
Now look, childless ASSes - it will be OK. We're not going to be overrun with snot-nosed screaming meamies - and there are probably quite a few ASSes who have kids, like I do, who are a little bit shy, a little bit different than most of their peers - who would enjoy the chance to come and make some friends too.
We can bring our own food and drink, although coolers will be checked to ensure you are not bringing your own alcohol (helloooo, they want you to buy THEIRS).
I think this could be a Big ASS Picnic! Bring cards, maybe even a few board games - there is NOTHING which says we can't get some small-group interactive activities going here for those who prefer to keep the larger part of the noise and hubbub at a bit of a distance.
And of course - we will find ourselves a groovy spot which will allow us to view all of the foolishness of the others with a degree of ASS-like aloofness and detachment. Those who cross-RSVP with other groups will come and go (but please - keep your bouncy, pretty friends from the bubbly groups at a respectful distance - if we ever hope to convince the quieter subset of this group to come enjoy the day, we need a "Muffy and Skip-free" zone). Of course, if they experience an inner epiphany and realize that they, too, are an ASS - if they tone it down a bit - THEN perhaps they may approach.
And yes, yes! Mount Airy is NOT DC! It is NOT NOVA! It is NOT BALTIMORE! It means - DRIVING!!! CAR-POOLING!!! Asses driving other Asses! Teamwork, cooperative spirit! Lewis Black ranting and raving on the way out and back (if he isnt' a natural ASS I don't know what comedian is).
So for carpooling, post in the comment area below - your location, and whether you need a ride or can provide one. DC/NOVA folk, if you can offer rides to Metro ASSes, offering to meet at a station would greatly enhance the mobility factor of our ASSes without cars.
