Alright, it's not the fifteenth MidWest BlogBash, but I've lost count what number this is. And no, I haven't sent any e-mail invitations out yet, so don't feel left out if you haven't got one.

Whenever: February 7, 2004. 6:00 PM CST.

Wherever: TNG's (Kirkwood) unless someone comes up with a better place -- hint, hint. I've also considered casinos and bowling alleys for a venue.

Whatever: Food, drink, a lieing contest, blogging, gambling (?), bowling (?). Best lie gets a free drink. Come and party with my ilk and take your best shot at trying to convince me that there is value and virtue in more than just a few pieces of art created after about 1930. Please explain why "Guernica" is something more than a bad joke, or how Picasso exclaiming that, "after he learned to draw like the great masters he spent the rest of his life learning to draw like a child," is admirable, or why David Blaine is something other than a deranged con artist. Best effort gets a free drink. Or present your pet theory for why the eventual Democratic nominee won't lose by at least 8 points in the general election. Best effort gets a free drink. Come one, come all. Be there or be square, or be both. Tallest blogger gets a free drink. One drink per contestant. Offer null and void wherever prohibited by law.
