Kentucky Derby and NEPA Bloggers' gathering this Saturday

As has become a bit of a tradition, there will be an informal* gathering of NEPA bloggers, blog readers, etc. etc. this Saturday. From Gort's official announcement:

The 13th annual get together of the Saturday OT Committee and Operatic Society to watch the Kentucky Derby is scheduled for Saturday, May 1st 4PM at Marks Pub 1287 N Washington St, Wilkes-Barre.

None of us are big horse race fans but this is just another excuse to infuse cash into the malt beverage industry to ensure it's liquidity. After all, we don't want D.G. Yuengling & Son to go the way of General Motors.

This is not a mega-meetup like the one last month a Rooney's (we will do that again in the fall) and it has not been sanctioned by the Northeast Blogging Council. But of course everyone is welcome.
I am supposed to be working that day, but as luck would have it I have already scheduled vacation days for both Saturday and Sunday. But this is only because I have an event I have to be at bright and early Sunday morning. So if I do make it out to the get-together, it will only be for a special brief cameo appearance.

*Like we've ever had any other sort.
