I came out here because Roger L Simon told me “open bar.” Other than that, I wasn’t sure exactly what I was supposed to do. Thanks to people like Blackfive’s Matt Burden, PJ Media’s “Uncle Jimbo” Hanson, Townhall’s Mary Katherine Ham, I got it figured out. The job here was to meet people make connection, and make for better blogging. Between us, and that open bar, we’ve made some exciting plans.
I’m especially indebted to Matt for introducing me to Katie Favazza, also from Townhall. Katie’s from my old home town, St Louis, and her father owns Favazza’s Restaurant on The Hill. Maybe you’ve heard of it. Well, I have — my grandfather and his old management crew at Southwest Steel used to eat there for lunch almost every day of the week. A flood of memories came back, all of them good, and added that little something extra special to a fine night spent swapping tall tales with some really smart, talented, and involved people.
I’d add more, but it’s nearly 3am and I have a flight to catch tomorrow morning. But thanks to connections made this week, before long you’ll be seeing some extra-special-added-value-VodkaPundit content over at Pajamas Media.
It’s an exciting time, and I hope you’ll stick around for the things to come.
