I think it would be great fun for the bloggers who live close enough and are willing to take the time to get together for lunch and just some face to face chat! I know I've often wondered about the person behind the blog...haven't you.
Blog Boot Camps are great, but not everyone can afford the time and money to travel that far. I propose that we meet at the Bull N' Claw Restaurant in Wells, Maine on Saturday June 4th, at 1:00 p.m. (click on the link if you want to see my review of the place.) No big conference charge, because it won't be a conference! We'll just have a drink, eat a great lunch and meet some blogger friends in person!
Bull N' Claw? Because if you look at the size of New England, Wells, ME is pretty centrally located, and they have an area with large tables suitable for any size group. If anyone feels they want to stay overnight in the area,or make a weekend of it, there's lots to do....beaches nearby, Waterparks, an Animal Farm, Outlet Shopping malls, etc., and plenty of hotels and motels at varying prices from which to pick. (Sorry, Chez Eva's one bedroom is fully booked.) Many of you are within a couple hours' drive, and you can get lunch and a cocktail at the Bull n' Claw for under $20 including tax and tip, so it doesn't have to be an expensive day--except for the price of gas!
I would like a $5.00 deposit from anyone who wants to come, as a firm commitment. No Refund if you don't make it, but if you do come, the $5.00 will be applied to your lunch bill. (The deposit request is so that I can reserve for a group, and know many seats we'll need.)
Let me know what you think of the idea, and please post a copy of this on your blog or notify any bloggers who live in the area and might be interested in attending. I know I'd love to meet more of you in person and am hoping others feel the same way!
