We meant to do this last month. Instead we're doing it next month. Join us as we share one or more bacon bombs at Paddy Longs.
I'm partial to Thursday nights. I think the 13th sounds swell (note: the 20th will likely conflict with attempts to go to Riddle Me at Town Hall). But if something else works better for the teeming masses, we could do that instead.

*shuts door*

Whew, it's cold out there!

I was walking by and happened to hear someone say "bacon bomb". The 13th sounds good to me.

Are the "maybe"s because of the date or because this is still two-weeks-ish away? If it's the latter, I'll go ahead and confirm this--if it's the former, I'll take alternate suggestions.

I'm a maybe because of the time?

...is there a time? Or do you just mean, "night"?
posted by adamdschneider at 9:08 AM on March 4, 2014

Cause we can make it that Friday or maybe Sunday? I hesitate to go with Saturday because it's a small place and you know, we're a crowd.

I think the 13th is good. Shall we say 7-7:30 ish?
posted by lunastellasol at 9:33 PM on March 4, 2014

As a suggestion, pending approval and unanimous decision of course :)

I still speak of the first bacon bomb in hushed tones of reverence.

Every time I see this thread, I start singing "I ate it like a bacon bomb" to the tune of Miley Cyrus's "Wrecking Ball"; I am telling you this as a promise that I will not do it in person. Fair warning: I cannot promise that eating one won't inspire me to write an entire parody after the fact.

yuuuuummmm so looking forward to this :)

Also, I would love to hear a Bacon Bomb/Wrecking Ball rendition

Let me tell you, choosing to come back from vacation the night the clocks go forward an hour, two weeks before your (well below target for fundraising) spring fundraiser, the first day warm enough for the oblivious to be on the lakefront trail during prime commute time is . . . . not the best idea. I could use a bacon bomb (and hopefully, they still have Bourbon County in the bar stock).

Hmph. My clock's off.

I do not like the pants I am wearing, especially for eating a ton of food, and I'm not sure I'm going to be able to get home to change my clothes, so if I show up in my dress shirt and sweatpants purchased at the CVS, y/n?

(I'm not really going to do that.)

I just tried eating a bagel sandwich while walking and ended up making a big mess of it (and myself) in public, which I guess is a pretty good warm-up exercise before the main event.

I'll be about 10 minutes late because I am the worst at "spending time until a future time."

All the way in the back! I am here, staking s claim

Running a tad late. 10 minutes or so.

I am so hungry.
