Thanks In Advance If You're There Tonight!
I want to thank in advance everyone who makes it to my birthday party tonight! About 20 people have said they are going to try to make it, but I won't be surprised if not that many of you show.
After four years of research, I have concluded that this is a miserable time of year to schedule a party, no matter what day you pick! People are swamped with other important things, and even those who really want to make it are often cut down by sickness or bad weather or both!
Thus, if you do attend my birthday party tonight, you will be at the last one of them I'll ever try to hold! From now on all of my parties are going to celebrate things that happen during a warmer time of year!
Tonight's party will start around 5 p.m. and last until at least 10 p.m. at my favorite music club, Humphrey's Backstage Lounge on Shelter Island!
For anyone interested in staying beyond 9 or 10, there will be music from 8 p.m. until midnight by Island Breeze, featuring one of the San Diego Parrot Head Club's two co-founders, John Bowe. I've also heard that my old high school classmate Jerry Gontang will be sitting in with the band after he finishes an earlier gig, so it will be cool to see Jerry and I'll probably stay late! There's no cover charge all night.Posted at 1:47 PM in Birthdays, DMG's Family, DMG's Friends
