Daveattle 2

Daveattle 2 was a blast. Literally.

On our way to meet our fellow bloggers at the Six Arms, Scott saw smoke coming up from - the street? He told me to keep driving to see what was going on. As we drove by 23rd and Pike, a big flash and a cloud of smoke burst up from a manhole cover. Unfortunately, we didn't have the camera out - it was very weird. The video at this link gives y'all a lot of insight into the regular goings-on of our neighborhood, though. Apparently it was an underground electrical explosion from the substation across the street. This was only 3 blocks from our house. When we got home, all of our appliances and their clocks were blinking at us. Dave sure packs a punch when he comes to town.

We made it on time, and stood for a minute inside the front door. Scott asked me if I knew what any of our fellow bloggers looked like ... umm, no, not really. A passing employee asked if we needed help, and we said we were looking for a bunch of people we'd never met before. I think the employee said something about "oh, like everyone else here ..." before another employee mentioned that we were probably looking for the folks upstairs. So up we went.

We found these people.





We had no idea who most of these folks were!!! But hey, we'll drink beer with them anyway.




Scott was charming as usual ...







I was pensive and quiet as usual ... *ahem*







The "Six Arms" - hence the name ...







They have the most coolest chandeliers evah here ...










We gave each other tattoos ...







... and paid each other to not blog about what went on. ("What happens in Capitol Hill, Stays in Capitol Hill ... ")







AND - we got oh-so-very-cool Dave Badges and Buttons!!!! Something to hang on the Christmas tree this year!!!!!!!



Thanks Dave! And Bryan, and Vahid, and Sizzle, and Chris, and Dustin, and Nicole, and Patty, and Tracy, and Kristin, and am I missing anyone (*ACK* if I am! And I'm sure I am ... ). Great people, great night. Let's do it again tonight guys!

Pretty cool!

Our city gay bloggers need to do something like this. There seems to be quite a few of us.

Great photos of you boys. Scott always has that devilish grin thing going on!

Pensive and quiet? Hmmm. I find that hard to believe. I get like that sometimes myself though ;)

You even managed to work in a picture of that weird boob lady behind you. Sweet!

You HAVE to get a picture of her every time you're there, or else bad things happen ... ;)
