Northern Alliance Get-Together A Rousing Success!

The first Northern Alliance social get-together at Keegan's Pub in Minneapolis was an absolute blast! We were fortunate enough to have James Lileks join us and the rest of the Twin Cities blogging community this evening. I got to meet Jay Reding, DC from Brainstorming, as well as some great CQ readers such as Pinkmonkeybird and Don. I met Dave from Dave's Picks for the first time -- he's one of the original Twin Cities bloggers, and he and I kept the bar from falling down for a while. Thorley Winston from Tacitus was there, as well as the Warrior Princess, whose link escapes me at the moment.

I couldn't stay long -- the back was killing me -- but I did get some pictures, which I will post later. I'm probably going to take the rest of the evening off to rest it. Don't forget that next week we'll be out at Diamond Bluff on our first live remote at the Patriot Picnic. There will be lots of free food and your favorite radio hosts on hand to entertain you. Hope to see you there!

UPDATE: I almost forgot about Shawn Sarazin from the American Mind, a great blog, whom I met tonight at the party. He's already posted his thoughts on it here.
