wink 2008 NYC Interference St. Patrick's Day Gathering - The Return

Alright, folks, it's that time of year again. And I'm not talking about Christmas.

It's time to start planning (or perhaps for now, get an overall feel for what the interest is) for the NYC St. Patrick's Day Interference Gathering, Part Deux.

Since it worked out so well with me, um, overtaking organizational duties last time, I'll be doing it again, and the one and only Headache in a Suitcase has signed on as "Cultural Advisor" (whatever that means, but I'm sure it involves a lot of beer).

Please note, the holiday falls on a Monday this time, and it looks as if the parade is going to be on that Monday instead of the Saturday before, which means the Unforgettable Fire show will be on Saturday the 15th. So it's not going to be an "exact" weekend like Part One was, but it's still sure to be a good time (and just a tip from some of us who attended the '07 festivities - you may want to figure in a bit of extra travel time due to the fact that just because the calendar says it's close to spring doesn't mean the weather's going to comply. ).

Sounds good except for the whole freezing-cold-in-the-snow thing. But I do New York and meeting other Blue Crack Addicts. Definitely have to think on this one.

Sicy said to come here...and lo and behold...look at what you guys are doing!! Well, uhhh...

"Hi, guys and girls! This was posted in U2.com, but on March the 17th for Saint Patrick's Day...some of us Zootopians will be gathering together to do the parade then get rowdy on the town afterward...do some sightseeing! I am moving back home to NYC in two weeks, and I have been planning this get together. So I would like to extend this get-together to the PLEBAns and Interference members here as well. I mean, hey, we all love U2, right? I am going to find us a place in New York where there is a U2 cover band playing. I had a suggestion as to BB Kings, but I also intend to check out other venues.

If you would like to join us and have some suggestions as to what to do and where to go, please chime in.

My other e-mail is kinswoman_2001@yahoo.com

Looking forward to meeting other U2 fans!"

That's what it was verbatim...so, well, we can make signs and wave at each other??? Or sit together???

Ahhh, what the hay, the Zootopians are coming to New York too!

Factoid #1 - DON'T BUY THE GET IN EARLY TICKETS FOR BB KINGS; THEY DON'T WORK...

Factoid #2 - IF YOU DO BUY THE GET IN EARLY TICKETS, MAKE SURE YOUR ENTIRE PARTY IS IN LINE AT THE SAME TIME SO YOU NEEDN'T TRACK THEM DOWN...

Factoid #3 - IF YOU BUY A RESERVED, GET IN EARLY TICKET, MAKE SURE YOU PAID THE MONEY TO EARN THE RIGHT TO SIT AT SAID BOOTH; OTHERWISE PREPARE TO STAND...THAT IS ALL.

Thanks...I feel like I have been spoken to by the Voice of God. I am taking you very, very seriously! Never been to BB Kings before, but obviously you have, so I appreciate you sharing your experience in this. I don't want to flub it for my fellow U2 fans!

Manhattan in March.

I could probably convince Mr. Blu to go for a repeat. I'll put the matter up for a vote & let you know in a few days.

Just make sure it's not green beer.
