Sweet way to kick off my birthday weekend! I'll be there (with beer!). As much as I love Woody's, I have to say it isn't the best place for a crowd to go for after party purposes. I'm sure those interested will figure something out, just my "Golden's my 'hood" two cents.

Dang, can't go Mike.Spent much more money to see Madonna the same night. I'm pretty sure Ed V. will be much more inspiring.

I hope that this is an inside joke. If not, it is the saddest post I have ever read on here.

How about the Buffalo Rose for the post-par-tay? They have karaoke for Billy and the Gang!! Yes, Bill, that is your new 70s rock ballad band. We will have your back up dancers ready...

For the non-crooners, there is a HUGE bar separate from the singing action.

Thoughts? (as if I had to ask for commentary from this gang)

They do now!!

Like I would ever dishonor THE Bill Middlebrook by insinuating he would be the lead singer in a 70s rock ballad band. We saved you a spot with the back-up dancers though, sir. \:D/

I look forward to seeing old friends and meeting new ones tomorrow. I'll pick up a case or two of beer and have it on ice for everyone. A few people have said they were bring a little beer too. I am not planning on putting out any food, so eat early. I agree that the Buff has better space for an after-party.

The "fates" have unaligned for me, and I will not be able to attend. First person to PM me gets my ticket. (I can email it to you, and I am assuming we can arrange for it to be transferred to you.) :(
Climb on!
