The Algonquin Round Pig

I have always secretly wanted to be part of a salon. Cool people sitting around smugly thinking, eating and drinking. Doesn't that sound like fun?

One of my favourite parts of blogging is the quasi-salon atmosphere we've got going. (Yes, I realise it's all in my head. So what. I'm a little crazy....it's part of my 'charm'.)

I personally think it would be just wonderful if we could make the much-vaunted Mothership BBQ the gathering place for our Nashville Bloggers Salon. How hip is it to have your own restaurant-cum-gatheringplace?
(cum being from the Latin meaning to "change or become." Not the other thing.)
This is something that only happens in movies starring Hugh Grant. Yet I would soooo love to see it happen.

How hip would we be? "Mothership. The home of Nashville Bloggercue."

I would so love to be a member of the salon as the requisite unpredictable wild card (will she be conservative or liberal today?), but I'd not be able to participate at that location. No offense to the Knucklehead, but BBQ junts aren't a great hangout for vegetarians. I also skip my local college alumni meetings because they hold them at Corky's.

Berry Hill instead of Notting Hill. Perfect!

Knuck is also serving some sort of potato dish, as well as coleslaw. So you are totally covered Lesley.

Does he have a liquor license?

I get to be Scarlet in "Four Weddings and A Funeral." I won't dye my hair that red but I love her.

Salon is a bit more refined than bloggerque, isn't it?

Aw damn, why does Sista get to be Scarlett, I wanted to be Scarlett.

Kat-will there be stylized cartoons of your salon's participants?

I think you are in charge of organizing. Pick your date and time for smoked meat and witty repartee.

No liquor license. No beer. Damn park across the street.

But he is invesitgating the BYOB option, which would only make the salon better. I see wine tasting!

Unfortunately, our buddy Knuck will also want to turn tables. Pick a crappy time of day on a crappy day of the week, Kat. We'll have to pay a table fee like at casino hold `em tables...

Who's coming to the grand opening? We might.

On a downer note, you know that actress who played Scarlett died of an acute asthma attack. I've not been able to enjoy that movie since. Well, the parts of it I enjoyed that were Andie McDowell-free that is.

Jag, let's hope Knuck doesn't have the luck of the Notting Hill restaurant.

Salon sounds refined, Malia, but really, how ironic is it to have a "salon" in a bbq joint?!? How Nashville, anyway...combining erudition with roasted hogflesh.

The Cobles will be there on Saturday at approx. 1:30. (after the Saturday ride) We would love to see the Watts' there since we missed them on Sunday. We would also love to see any other bloggers (hint hint)

I promise, ceeelcee& knuck, that we will order lots and eat fast.

I can live with BYOB. It's cheaper that way and I won't have to conceal it.

We'll have to be there closer to 11:00 if we can make it... choir tour begins at 1:30!

'sides... we'd want to vy for the first dollar

I forgot about Choir Tour. Bummer. (These things happen when you're tone-deaf.)

I'm trying to see if TC can get home early.

Yes, we can be there earlier. But I'm going to draw the line at anything pre-11:00. It's not that I'm worried about cutting my ride short - I'd just rather not end up having BBQ for breakfast.

Don't eat fast on my account. I imagine I'll while away many an hour in the Mthership. I already have. Ask me about our epic poker games we used to have in that space.

Hope to see many of you FTF on Saturday!

Well, all my Saturday plans were dashed at 3:30 this morning when I heard David, very sick, in the bathroom. I'm home all day with the kiddos and a can of Lysol. Y'all have fun now, ya hear!

Dang, Malia.

I was looking forward to meeting Charlie Brown's little readheaded girl.

Good luck killing the beasties!
