I hope everyone had a great time over the holidays! I escaped to the mountains, which was awesome and relaxing and super fun and left no time for blogging. It’s been tough to find time in the few days I’ve been back also, but I have a long list of things I’m excited to write about, so I have high hopes that things around here will pick up shortly.
Becks, dto510, and I have put together a few of these in the past (I wrote about that in more detail last month, and I always have such a great time. It’s so exciting to meet the people behind the words I read all the time, whether in comments here or posts on other local blogs. And it’s inspiring to talk to so many other people who love Oakland so much that they’re moved to write about it for anyone who wants to read. I always leave the parties feeling totally refreshed and re-energized about my blog.
So I hope you’ll join us tonight, whether for the whole party or just for one drink, it’s up to you. We’re having the event at new downtown restaurant Disco Volante, which is currently only open for lunch but will be starting dinner service in the near future. Disco Volante is located in the pretty green building at the corner of 14th and Webster downtown, the one that used to house the big bra store.
So come on down, have a cocktail, sample some of their fabulous food, enjoy some great live music, and meet Oakland bloggers and blog readers. Who knows. Maybe you will be inspired to start your own blog afterwards!
See you tonight, 6-9 PM at 347 14th Street.
