Blogfest set for April 29 on Pittston Politics

The Lu Lac Political Letter: The LuLac Edition #1515, March 21st, 2011

In the past there have been numerous gatherings of local bloggers, but last year's events in March and September were the first to also feature large numbers of politicians and/or their posses, to the extent that I thought of the events as politician/blogger mixers.  For such a potentially politically-charged event, the atmosphere was surprisingly laid-back, and several politicians remarked that the event was very friendly and relaxing.  As Joe Valenti points out, the ground rules set by Gort - the original organizer of these gatherings - are straightforward:   Admission is free, no speeches, you must buy your own drinks and you must wear clothes.

If you'd like to meet the people who write many of the blogs in Northeastern Pennsylvania, if you're a blogger who wants to rub elbows with your fellow bloggers, if you'd like to have a word with some of the candidates running for office, or if you're a candidate looking to have a nice chat with some of the leading political bloggers in Northeastern Pennsylvania, stop in at Rooney's Irish Pub at 67 South Main Street in Pittston on Friday, April 29 starting at 6:00 PM!
