It's December.

Time for all those boring, typical, and "Oh, I can't believe I have to go to another holiday party" gatherings.

No worries; not this one!

This isn't your run-of-the-mill holiday gathering...

This is an event where will we will raucously celebrate all we accomplished in 2009, toast a kickass 2010, and revel in being at the hippest party in town - and in great company!

This is a tweetup, so there is no charge to attend.

We will include a champagne tasting for $15 - with free tapas - as part of what will make this evening really special.

So, join the coolest crowd around, and we'll thumb our noses at all those sipping tea and eating Frosty cookies...

Randy Barnes 12/14/09…ion-for-688/ this is a great story of Atlanta punk history and also an excellent example of blog comment spam. If you blog then use a spam blocker like the Akismet plugin to nix this poo.
