2013 Mobbies Bash at the Creative Alliance – Nov 19
The Mobbies party, celebration and honoring of the 2013 winners is Tuesday evening. Dennis Lane’s life, blog, contribution to community and overall awesomeness will be honored in some way at the event. For those of you who can make it, I think a HoCo showing at the party would be lovely. I’ve got room from three more medium- to large- adults in my car or four small- to medium-sized people. Who else is in? Anyone want to carpool where it works out? Let’s say we meet at on Tuesday in the parking lot in front of REI. 5:30 gather; 5:45 depart. 443-794-7521 (me) to coordinate that day.
