Dreyer has another birthday!
Rag Blog editor Thorne Dreyer’s alleged ‘birthday’ event to be held Friday, August 2, from 6-9 p.m., at Maria’s Taco Xpress, 2529 S. Lamar Blvd in Austin.

AUSTIN, Texas — In a surprising development, usually reliable sources close to the subject report that Rag Blog editor and Rag Radio host Thorne Dreyer actually intends to celebrate another birthday. This will be the 68th straight year that this unprecedented event has occurred.
Dreyer did not return our phone calls, but a close associate, who asked not to be identified, had the following response: “Shameful! He has one every year, and he does it in public!”
Records show that Dreyer was actually born on August 1st, 1945, in Houston, Texas, but, in another twist to this developing story, he has asked his friends and “extended community” (he would also appear to be delusional) to join him Friday, August 2nd, from 6-9 p.m., at Maria’s Taco Xpress, 2529 S. Lamar Blvd in Austin.
Dreyer allegedly suggested that friends and followers, in lieu of gifts, make a small donation to the New Journalism Project, the Texas nonprofit that publishes The Rag Blog. (Like that’s going to happen!)
Maria’s food menu and full bar will be available and blues-rock singer Leeann Atherton and her band will perform — reportedly under protest –- at 7 p.m. on Maria’s patio.
Proprietress Maria, when reached for comment, would only say, “Thorne who?”
