Saturday Morning at BlogCon in Charlotte, NC

Good morning, America. The BlogCon has been awesome so far here in my adopted hometown of Charlotte, NC. A number of the gang were treated to the best soul food restaurant in the city at Mert’s last night. Gabriel Malor, IrishSpy, SisterToldjah and JCinQC (my Twitter gang) all went to Roosters — one of our absolute favorites in Charlotte. Great food, good prices.

John and I are staying at home and driving back and forth, so we missed the late night festivities. Rumors have it that there was an intense karaoke party. And something about Ben Howe doing a rap song. If I get more details later…. I’ll reveal all!

This morning we got to the hotel a bit late, so we missed National Review’s Jim Geraghty talk. Dangit! Hopefully I’ll find out what he covered later.

The best part of BlogCon (and previous “Con” events I’ve attended), is the sense that we are all a family. I get more bear hugs from my conservative friends at this event than I ever did at a real family event.

Anyway, I’m so glad that the BlogCon gang came to Charlotte….. I hope our city is treating everyone well.

  3. Charlotte is a very hospitable city and they will suffer mightily for it when the Dems come to town,

  4. I need to go up there sometime. Got a friend there whom I haven’t seen in almost 20 years.
