Bar night at Dr. Dremo's

On the old blog I talked a little about my love for my XM radio. The best part about it is I get to hear the Ron and Fez show middays. It's been my favorite show for as long as I can remember. They are based out of New York now but they used to be based right here in Northern Virginia. Because of that, there are a ton of fans right here in DC. Back in the day they use to organize Friday night bar nights on a pretty regular basis. When the show left they stopped.

I thought it would be cool to meet some fellow fans so I organized a bar night at Dr. Dremo's on Friday. At first it was just going to be a few people but then they mentioned it on the show and we had a good group show up. There were quite a few regular show guests who stopped by. It was fun to see their faces after hearing their voices so much over the years.

Here are a few pictures

This is me and Kristy with Don the Hypnotist. He's been a guest on the show quite a few times. There are clips of his most recent appearance on YouTube. You should check them out. They're hilarious.

The two on either side of me are Bobo and Kathleen from the Bronx. They're both regular callers and guests on the show. Both are too funny.

Me with a bunch of other fans.

I just posted this one because Kristy looks adorable in it.

We had a fun time and agreed to try to set something up again sometime.

Meeting new people

One of my biggest regrets about our time in New Orleans is that we didn't take advantage of the opportunities to meet people. While we were there the blogging community made a real effort to get to know each other. They were nice enough to link to our blog on the wiki they set up.

For whatever reason we never made the effort to go to any of the events they set up and that was a mistake.

Now that we're in DC we're gonna make a real effort to get out more. We're lucky that the Girata's are already here and we've had a lot of fun hanging out with them. They introduced us to a bunch of their friends a few weeks back at one of their regular card nights. Good times.

In addition to that I intend to join the University of Alabama alumni association. They have an athletic league with competitions set up with other school's alumni. I hope I can make the softball team or something. If I make it I'll be sure to put up a picture or two. I'll know more about all that in a few weeks.

It's snowing!

It took a few weeks but we finally got our first snow!

It's not much right now. They're saying it's supposed to be one inch. Everyone we talked to wasn't very impressed. It was pretty cool to us though.

Here's Kristy checking it out.
