I'd sell organs important to sustained life to attend this but I have surgery on the 9th, so I don't think I'll be able to attend. Recovery is supposed to be 2 weeks, so maybe I'll try to sneak out or something.

It would make you feel much better. I promise. :)


The Man Uptown
I'm working on setting up a dinner at a restaurant across the street, so they can close early for dinner in order to accommodate us (and allow for smoking since they're closed). It's a fantastic restaurant...LouieD was at our last dinner there. I can arrange for a fix price 3 course dinner (a few entrees to choose from), and whatever we drink from the bar is additional. I'll have plenty of different beers, scotch, bourbon maybe....but that's during the day, before dinner. There will also be some grilling on the sidewalk in front of the store...and that's if I can't close the street.


We are the music makers...we are the dreamers of d
Sounds interesting. Per google maps, Kingston NY is only 2hrs from me.

Let me guess...You got Billy Dee Williams to come and he is going to be dressed as Lando? or You will be raffling off a working/to scale Imperial AT-AT Walker?


" Herf King "
I've just put it on my calendar and I'm sure the Schlesinger's / Hudson Valley Cigar Crew will be in full attendance as well........ :D :thumbs: :cool:

Damn it....I wanted to go to this but I'll be driving in the complete opposite direction (Lake Placid) to run the Half Marathon. I was really looking forward to meeting up with this crew.

Maybe next time...have fun boys..
