edited April 2011 in Given To Fly (live)
THIS THREAD IS TO PROMOTE THE EVENT - we are also looking for gift donations for the raffle. Proceeds are going to Advocacy for Patients - http://www.advocacyforpatients.org/

Again, if you have extra PJ stuff laying around that you can part with there is a raffle waiting for it. Going to a great cause and it's tax deductible. PM Foxy Mop or I!

Lets try not to get this locked again. FUNDRAISER FOR Advocacy for Patients. I'm assuming it's all the personal stuff back and forth (good/bad/whatever). As long as it's fundraiser/party related posts (e.g., like buying me beers all night ;) ), that should be fine.

    .................oh man. :shock:
  • june 8th, around the bend.

    oh please, let me sleep, it's christmas time.

    once, upon a time, i could control myself.

    on june 9th, after the show, i'm gonna say "why go home, why go home"?

    but to my Albany EV pre-party board friends... "this could be my time by you" (but please don't hit me).

    to the mods: "i swear i never took it for granted, just thought of it now"

    because unfortunately i won the lottery when I was born.

    and because I don't want to "paint ed big, turn ed into, one of his fuckin enemies"

    even on this board, i've "tried to endure, what I could not forgive"

    but on june 8/9, (and aug 21 for me) we can all sing "troubled souls unite, we got ourselves tonight"

    you know "i'll keep takin punches, until their will grows tired"

    coz "I still remember, why don't you" and "he who forgets, will be destined to remember"

    it turns out that I "don't need a helmet, got a hard, hard head"

    I hope on june 7th I don't start singing "the waiting drove me mad..."

    but if i'm lucky, bugs won't "tickle my nausea"

    and for now "vacate is the word".

    I sent a PM to Foxy Mop about donating something. She is a busy girl so I have not gotten a response yet. If my item is ok to donate then you can add it to the list.

    P.S. why did the last thread get locked? Everyone was behaving.

    Just spoke to her - she hasn't been on top of the PMs and send her apologies.... but thanks! I'll put you and Tomas on the list!

    also,

    um... I think we had duplicate threads out there? Maybe that's why? Dunno....

  • so i was wondering, people who live in Albany, are there any good Seafood restaurants or steak houses in the area??
    URACB,

    Real Seafood Co on Wolf Rd.

    I like that place. Others will disagree I'm sure.

    I'm a big sushi fan and there's really only 2 places to go that are good and "close" (the second place is overpriced IMHO). If you're interested I can set u up with those (but I might want to go with you!).

    For steak (or i guess it would be surf and turf) there's Butcher Block Steak & Seafood. I've eaten there before and liked it.

    Except for sushi, i'm not much of a food snob... so take it or leave it I guess. At least I know not to send you to Red Lobster and Sizzler?

  • After-Party Update:

    To ALL who were considering going to any kind of after party. the location is now up for grabs (Red Square is a no go).

    I'm suggesting:
    Lark Tavern
    Lionheart
    Bayou
    Jillians

    Let the voting begin. I'm not partial to any of them. Oxxy's put his vote in for Lark Tavern.

    Consensus will win, and I'll post here. Time will be "after the show". All other organization, implied or otherwise, is unintended.

    thank you, drive thru.
  • Hey people who are from Albany, how far away is Jillian's from the Palace? I'm just wondering if I could leave my car there and walk to the Palace. or if I should relocate to a parking garage or something.
