Saturday, May 17th, 2008!

You are invited to the 1st Annual, 1st ever, first-come first disinterred, International Zombie vs. Prom party, prom, old-time pickery, pig roast, Washer Championship, Karoake-thon, late-May Day, early-Memorial Day, beware the Idea of May!, April and May mega-birthday strava-gorgonzol-off(*).

We thought of so many good reasons to have a party, we've already forgotten half of them. What we can recall:

So here's the low-down on the hoedown:

The party's @ Rick & Ali's house at 5001 Indiana Avenue (tel.: 615.463.8085), as well as at 5003A, 5003B, and 5003C Indiana Ave. (i.e., not only did we invite the neighbors but they invited us too). The party proper will start up during like the evening, whatever that is (6, 7, 8, 9, ... ?), but there'll probably be things starting up earlier. If Ben gets the magic to happen there'll be some cooking going on all day.

The theme is "Zombies vs. Prom", make of that what you will.

If you can pick, fiddle, or otherwise join in an old-time jam, bring your instrument over. We'd like to have a circle going.

There'll also be various kinds of entertainment going on -- maybe other live music. Almost certainly some DJ'd music in the general party vicinity. Games of skill, luck, chance, creativity, and possibly impropriety.

We will have food, but feel free to bring a dish. We will have a keg of some flavority, but feel free to bring your own beverageness. We are getting our invite on, but feel free to invite those people you know who make for the fun of times, don't destroy the furniture, and have this strange problem where their cash keeps falling out of their pockets in wads of small unmarked non-sequential bills everywhere they go...
