The tradition lives on. Saturday will be the 8th such gathering hosted by Mr. and Mrs. Confidential at their domicile on East Spring Street, world headquarters of the 1117 East Spring Neighborhood Association.
You’re invited to drop by and say hi. As noted many times before, there’ll be craft draft beer and a place to watch the parade, which begins around 12:00 noon, although we’ll be available from 10:00 a.m. or so for the usual slider brunch.
Beer snacks are welcomed, but because we’ll move the celebration downtown immediately after the parade concludes, there is no need to bring a dish or more complicated foodstuffs. You may need to bring a camp chair, although admittedly the current weather forecast calls for cool and rain, and we may remain huddled on the porch. With beer.
If you’re an anonymous commentator from another blog, you’re welcomed, too, but you must wear a paper sack over your head to preserve the fiction.
