Hey, are you busy on Saturday, February 28th from 3-5 p.m.?
If not, I’m having a party and I want you to come. It’s a “Take Me Out to the Book Launch” event to celebrate the publication of this
and to ring in the ’09 baseball season.
(See? I’m in such a festive mood I let the Red Sox win that one.)
The bad news? The party is in Santa Barbara. The good news? There’s gonna be free beer!
And not just any beer. Our host is the Hollister Brewing Company.
They’re not only providing their great micro-brewed beers, but they’re creating a special beer named after the book. (I think they’re calling it the She-Fan Stout. 🙂
And what goes with baseball and beer? You guessed it.
They’ll also be serving their famous sliders
and chicken wings
and pulled pork sandwich. Yum.
Isn’t all that worth a plane trip? A train ticket? A little drive?
Co-sponsored by our great local newspaper
the party will feature possible guest appearances by the coach of the Independent League champions, the Santa Barbara Foresters, as well as some of the players.
Check out how many Foresters went on to play in the majors. It’s quite a list.
We’ll have entertainment on the big screen TVs
and autographed books for sale.
And don’t worry about making conversation or mixing in with my friends.
There will be plenty of interesting people to hang out with.
O.K., then just come for the beer.
