Pirates Pre-Season Pub Night

Friday April 10th 6PM Three Lions Pub (Oakland at Kensington in Shorewood)
http://threelionspub.com

I'm not expecting a big crowd, I made reservations for ten.  So if you're not part of the group that already RSVPed via email, please email or call or leave a comment on this blog, so that I can let them know more people are coming.

Although my last blog post about a pre-season outing garnered a tepid response, I got a much more enthusiastic reaction on email and it seems Friday is good.

Unfortunately I made a major mistake when I scheduled this.  As Gelaney will tell you, husbands never learn.  As it happens Friday is our 44th wedding anniversary and we usually go out for a nice dinner.  Believe it or not, in Gelaney's eyes a fish fry with the swim group is not a romantic evening.  I suggested that we could celebrate our anniversary on Saturday instead of Friday, however in Gelaney's eyes she is now playing second fiddle to the swim group.  I tried to backtrack and told her I would try to find a different day for the swim group, but it's too late, the damage has been done, I am dog meat, burnt toast, shark bait.  I'm telling you all this not because I think the husbands among you will learn anything from it, but just so you know why I will be crying in my beer on Friday.

I should have known better.
With my tail between my legs,
Humbled Patriarch

Sadly dark and stormy were in Sedona mountain biking and missed this outing. Will there be another?
