We've got an awesome party coming up, and I do hope you can join us!
On Monday, October 10th (yes, we know: it's a federal holiday), please come by the Standford Grill in Columbia, Md., for what I believe will be a party like no other we've yet had.
Together, we'll celebrate two noteworthy milestones: First, Wordbones/Tales of Two Cities is celebrating his fifth year as a blogger; second, the hyper-local podcast show And Then There's That ... is marking its 50th episode. Wordbones describes the party vision much better than I could, and I encourage you to read his blog post about it.
The show's guest roster includes Tom Coale of Hocorising, Lindsey McPherson of Explore Howard and HowChow of HowChow. The show will be recorded during the party and, after the scheduled guests have been interviewed, show hosts Dennis Lane and Paul Skalny will move about, microphone in hand, interviewing people. Perhaps you'll be one of them.
You may well know, we had our last party at the Stanford Grill out on the patio area, and we'll be again this time. The staff and executive team at Stanford Grill were gracious and generous hosts, which makes it much easier for us to have our events at their venue.
Please join me in congratulating Dave and Ilana Bittner and the team at Hocomojo for the amazing work they've done in producing And Then There's That ...; Paul and Dennis for hosting these delightful hyper-local podcasts; and Dennis/Wordbones for being -- what I'd claim heartily -- is one of Howard County's most stalwart bloggers.
See you on the 10th!
