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.

    Happy 68 Thorn, who would have thought we would ever be this old!!! when we were in HS

  2. Actually, I stopped growing older years ago — back when Jack Benny did. But I still have “birthdays” because I don’t want to make you old guys feel bad!
