just keeps getting older!
“Growing old is mandatory; growing up is optional.” — Chili Davis, hitting coach, Oakland Athletics
From the Rag Blog Society Desk / July 31, 2013
AUSTIN, Texas — In Austin? Or can you get here fast?
Rag Blog editor/Rag Radio host Thorne Dreyer is having another birthday, and he’s doing it in public!
Please join us for Dreyer’s 68th birthday party this Friday, August 2, 6-9 p.m., at Maria’s Taco Xpress, 2529 South Lamar Blvd, Austin, Texas. Maria’s has a full bar and Tex-Mex menu, and Leeann Atherton performs on the patio at 7. (Find the party on Facebook.)
(Dreyer’s birthday is really August 1st, but cut the old guy some slack: he gets confused!)
No gifts, but a small donation to the New Journalism Project — the Texas 501(c)3 nonprofit that publishes The Rag Blog — would be welcome. If you can’t come, here’s the link to donate.
Baseball’s Chili Davis famously said: “Growing old is mandatory; growing up is optional.”
Don’t grow up! Come party with us Friday.
