Bloggers Underground; Or, Yes Shannon, There Is an Andrew

Last night I attended a meeting of the NCR Blog Mafia at D'Arcy McGee's, at the corner of Sparks and Elgin in Ottawa.

Also in attendance was Andrew Anderson of Bound By Gravity, proving once and for all for the benefit of Shenanigans fans that he does exist -- even though he sort of looks like it's doubtful here.

Joining him was Paul of Canadian Musings ...

... as well as our hostess herself and Bruce of Autonomous Source ...

... who later began to plot campaign strategies with Conservative nominee for Ottawa-Centre Keith Fountain.

Also present was Don from All Things Canadian, who didn't want his picture taken because apparently Warren Kinsella wants an image to show to his lawyers. (Or something like that. It's a little hard to tell after a Guinness, a martini and a vodka on the rocks.) Blair from Italics Mine got there just as I was leaving.)

It was a good time. We were in the basement of D'Arcy's, at a table set up underneath the speakers, so we all got the fun of trying to talk above a live band. And D'Arcy's is pretty good with the cocktails.

Definitely something to do again. Perhaps in the fall?
