Blogade Ridge

I just want to thank the compact but hearty group that turned out for today's blogade on my home turf (toif?) of Bay Ridge.

This was the first time I ever hosted such an event and I'm proud to say I didn't lose a single blogger.

I was so nervous in the days leading up to this event that I didn't realize that I was having a great time until late in the day.

We met at Omonia Cafe on Third Avenue and the upstairs all to ourselves, where we talked, ate, and kibbutezed.

Of course, I realize now that I didn't say all the things I wanted to say about the history of Bay Ridge, but I hope you guys got the general idea.

The guest list included:

Bed-Stuy Blog
Brooklyn Junction
Deep in the Heart of Brooklyn
Flatbush Gardener
I'm Seeing Green
Self-Absorbed Boomer

Also joining us was David Scheffler of Swell Designs.

Thanks one and all for coming out!

WOW You got a great group. I'm sorry I couldn't be there. The Volvo broke down on the NY Thruway.

I bet it was great. Louise

Hey, Rob and the Gang! Sorry I had to cut out early, just as the conversation was ramping up. "Meta-blogging" indeed.

Rob K said...

Gosh, Louise, I'm sorry to hear about the Volvo. I don't envy you that one bit.

Xris--no worries. Glad you showed up for as long as you did.

And if you didn't get to check out the Gingerbread House and other Bay Ridge homes, please come back for a return visit.

Now I'm really sorry I missed it. Still fighting off this cold...

Thanks very much for these links, Rob. What terrific blogs!

Rob K said...

That's okay, Anne, just feel better.

Well, dang. I've missed yet another Brooklyn Blogade. Do you know when and where the next one will be? And can somebody please please put me on the blogade's mailing list? Cheers.

Rob K said...

Will do, Joyce. Nice blog, btw.
