A real to-do.

The NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits in Pittsburgh is fast approaching as is The (2nd Annual!) Breda Fallacy Blogger Reception. Alan Gottlieb must have had a good time at the party in Charlotte because this year, the Second Amendment Foundation was kind enough to co-host, offering both a venue and refreshments. (cash bar, though, so you all can fight over who gets to buy me a drink)

I am really excited about this. So very excited, in fact, that I bought a dress and red lipstick for the event and insisted that Nancy R. absolutely MUST wear her new shoes. I'm told gunnies can clean up real nice so it's bound to be a lovely evening. There's even rumors of an afterparty.

Also, if there's any new bloggers/first-time convention goers who would like a media pass, please send me an email (bredafallacy AT gmail DOT com) and I'll help you out. Since I've been doing exactly this for a couple of months now anyway, I thought I'd put up a post today to spread the not-quite-last-minute word. Bloggers are changing the way the world finds information and the NRA knows it. They do a great job of reaching out to and encouraging new media, and it's honestly wonderful to be a part of the whole endeavor. A media pass not only grants you access to a great number of fun activities, but will hopefully inspire a great number of blog posts as well.

See you soon! (Why, yes, I am stifling a squee.)

I have just bought a new sports coat for the Gunnie Prom, Extra Bourbon will be available at my Hotel, and I told Nancy R. I'd stay out of your Camera Shots so as to not spoil the Myth that Larry Correia has about her actually being a 7 foot tall Amazon Warrior. Now if I only had the tech base as my house to support a Blog....

Mike W. said...

Nancy IS 7 feet tall Les!

You kidnapped Alan last year and gave him a mini-deathstare didn't you? That's why he agreed to co-host this year. :P

Will there be whiskey & Dogfish Head at this afterparty?

Nancy R. said...

It was Sayuncle that thought I was 7'.

Any chance there will be name tags this year? I don't even care if they all read "Inigo Montoya", I'm just REALLY bad with names.

Breda said...

Yep! I'm doing name tags!

Bubblehead Les. said...

Nancy R; Mea Culpa, but those will be some cool pictures, whoever sees them. Mike W.; Couldn't have been me, this will be my First Gunnie Prom/ NRA Con, so whoever Kidnapped Alan.... well, I'd be suspicious of that Guy Stuck in Massachusetts.

As for Adult Beverages, I'm booked at the La Quinta Thursday Night through Sunday Morning, and Bourbon will be available. But feel free to bring along anything else that is legal to consume for those 18 years and older in the State of Pennsylvania. However, as MBTGE told me, the First Rule of Fight Club....

Mike W. said...

Les - I should totally get on my knees for a picture with Nancy, maybe one with Breda too. She might still be shorter than me :P

Name tags - As long as you don't put my REAL 1st name on mine we'll be fine. Otherwise it'll confuse everyone, including me. Someone should totally come wearing a "My name is Inigo Montoya" t-shirt.

I'm bringing along liquid consumables that I *only* break out at special occasions and gatherings with good friends. I want this event to be where we finish off a Jack Daniels Single Barrel Select, and a rather impressive and peaty scotch called Dalmore.

Old NFO said...

Breda, check your email please.

Jay G said...

I went out and bought a new shirt for this. Might even put on a tie!

Bubblehead Les. said...

Well, if old NFO is there, and I'm there, and T-Bolt is there, sounds like we need some Marines to Guard our Gates! "Anchors Away...."

DaddyBear said...

I'm in for a bottle of Kentucky's finest!

Is the reception on Friday or Saturday night?

falnfenix said...

if DragonLW's bringing the Single Barrel, i'll be an even happier woman. glad to see there are other fans of the stuff.

also, OMG OMG OMG SQUEE.

Mike W. said...

A tie JayG? I'll be wearing a black dress shirt but no tie. I don't wear a tie unless I have to, even at work.

ZerCool said...

Looking forward to it - are details about when/where going out via email, or... ?

Breda said...

Details are in this blog post!

ZerCool said...

Herp/derp. I'm getting lost in the blogs! Thanks for clarifying. :-)

(MrsZ may or may not be a tagalong, I really don't know - and if it's going to screw up the count, we'll assume not.)

falnfenix said...

hey Breda, it just occurred to me that you don't have Chris's last name. do you need it?

Breda said...

Sure, email me.

John B said...

No fair stealing my line Jeff!

DragonLW said...

@falnfenix

Drop an e-mail so we can co-ordinate, and I can make sure there's some of the JD Single Barrel for a shot or two for you and yours.

Its currently just under a half-bottle left...yer the only person who's expressed an interest in it tho.
