Blogger Do At Tobacco Rd

Hey People!
Sunday Morning ditty A La Seinfeld, enjoy;

*Clears throat*

Believe it or not, last night I wasn't at home! While R laid out fast asleep... I must have been out, or I'd have been on the phone... Where could I have been? Believe it or not, I wasn't home....

At a Blogger party, do you talk about what you Blog about or Blog about what you talk about??

Last night was the blogger party at Tobacco Rd, which is Miami's Oldest Bar. I planned on getting there almost two hours late after I sat on my bum on Lincoln Rd for over an hour w. aiting for them all to show up for brunch..And I was still there before more than half the crowd!, including Balou, Fanless, Ipanemic, Consumable Joy, and others had even showed up.

Multi -Colored Moon Over Miami

When I did get there, Tere from a Mom, a blog, and the life in between, and Chris from Man or Maniac were there with my girl Miami Rhapsody.. Blue Moon drinking commenced immediately! I have been waiting to get some good pics to post with this little ditty here, but all the ones any of them got were blurry... except my buddy ipanemic got this fabulous picture of my very own blue moon over miami before my drunk on blue moon ass fell off the rickity plastic chair i was sitting on.

Then Gus and Michelle from showed up and the party really began. I introduced them all to blue moon, and even Michelle, who is not a beer drinker liked it. I felt like a proud Mama! There was lots and lots of photo taking, which bloggers tend to do, but since we were having such a time, most people's came out blurry. I love hanging out with my Miami bloggers. Excuse the cliche, but there is absolutely never a dull moment. The two biggest only in Miami moments of the night happened at nealry the same time and in almost the same place, and yet one of them no one knew about until after.

The Scuffle AKA Only in Miami

Firstly my buddy A* and one of the wait staff got into what I will politely call a scuffle. I have to thank A for standing up for us, as the wait staff were trying to take our food away before we were done and seemed quite peeved that this rowdy group of bloggers who were only drinking beer and not doing shots. Or maybe we were just too old for them, since we can all legally drink.. I thought about getting involved, I wanted to say something, but tk god Ipanemic helped me fight the urge. Alex took care of it for us anyway. I mean, there are only so many times a waiter can try to take your food or drink while you are in the midst of eating or drinking it without some sort of conflict ensuing... This happened Miami Bloggers,, Tobacco Road while I was sitting at this booth, who knows, possibly at the same time since I don't remember Balou taking it. She went to take a pic of Scott and ended up getting this couple in the background. Look how the guys hand is on a steadily southward migration!

Waiting for Godot

Okay, what I was really waiting for was to sober up to drive home, but catchy subhead, eh? This weekend should be another fun talk about blog about blog about talk about weekend since Yvette/Miami Rhapsody is having a birthday party at her house! Which leads me to my cheesy closing joke I thought of yesterday driving

Q: What's the most important thing on the invitation to any Blogger Do if you want a good turnout?

It was great to meet you and I hope to see you at more events.

I've never had bad service at TR, so Saturday surprised me. Although thankfully this wasn't actually a scuffle, it was serious enough to put a damper on my mood for the rest of the night. I certainly don't go out to get abused by a rude waiter! The manager made up for it by offering us some free Cokes, which really is hardly making up for it at all. I guess when you're Miami's oldest bar, you figure you'll outlive and outlast anything.

Then again, there are so many other places to meet up, I'm sure we won't have any trouble finding a more fun place with more cordial waiters.

Nice meeting you too are right.. I've been so freaking bored lately if I stub my toe I consider it a scuffle....

Actually, "Tere's friend Chris" is another blogger: I write Camera-Ephemera, South Florida Theatre Scene, and Man, Or Maniac?

This was only the second time I've hung out with Tere; the first was a blogging get-together several months ago.
