This is the official "Be there or be
square somewhere else" fanpost to remind you that if you live in the Bay Area, don't smell too bad, enjoy killing fresh dead animals such as beef, soy, or mushrooms, and like watching A's baseball with other self-disrespecting addicts, you might be welcome at my Chez in Berkeley on Sunday, August 7th ... if you RSVP.
The A's play at Tampa Bay at 10:40am on Sunday, August 7th, so the plan is to watch the game first, then have a late lunch around 2:00pm. "BYODA" stands for Bring Your Own Dead Animal, as we will grill "anything you bring and possibly Poochini". Following lunch, if there's interest, we might bring out a deck of cards and some chips (could be potato, could be Erik Estrada) and play some low stakes poker. Or not. Maybe we'll just call into Chris Townsend's show and gigglingone can cuss in the background, like last time.
To confirm and get my address, email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) in the next few days. I know Optimist Prime and gigglingone are coming, but you should come anyway! I've already pre-ordered an A's win.
