SCBA gathering (Updated!!!) 

We are having a gathering of the St. Cloud Bloggers Association (containing both MOB and non-MOB members) at 5pm this Friday at Granite City Food and Brewery here in the Cloud. It is our second visit to GCFB, which was great last time and had wireless capacity for us to use. We expect some elected officials to attend. Please contact Gary Gross from Let Freedom Ring so we can give the restaurant a head count.

Jeff from View from the Cloud invites attendees to then come to the Veranda Bar in downtown St. Cloud to hear his band play. He'll be the guy on the harmonica.

GCFB is at the corner of Highways 15 and 23. If you are coming from the Cities, take I-94 to exit 167B, Highway 15. Come to the first stop light (just past the "Welcome to Saint Cloud" sign) and you'll see GCFB there on the corner. You'll need to make a lefthand turn, then turn into the parking lot where you see Bed, Bath and Beyond and Chipotle.

Note: The MOB gathering comes July 14 at Keegans.

UPDATE: The guest list grows! Rep. Laura Brod has confirmed her attendance; we are "efforting" even more distinguished guests.

UPDATE 2: And we're live from GCFB! We have the following blogs in attendance:
We have Representatives Dan Severson, Steve Gottwalt, Laura Brod and (pleasant surprise) Matt Dean as well as House district 15B candidate Josh Behling (needs website -- promises to do so soon) here with us as well. There's lots of political talk around here. Jeff Lee and I have taken some pictures from here.

While it's a little noisy inside here, and Drew hasn't come with the cigars yet, we are hopeful that we will have a few more people show up later. Still, we have over thirty here. We will need a ruling for the blogs listed here not in the MOB to be admitted as a sanctioned event attendee.
