KC’s Ribshack turned out to be a really good choice, although they ran out of Brisket before we arrived. That’s apparently an occupational hazard as something similar happened to me in Texas last November. Apparently it has to do with how long Brisket takes to cook, anticipating demand, and not wanting to have a lot of left over inventory at the end of the day. Which is the sum total of things that went wrong.
The venue itself was very nice and the food was delicious. It was also quiet enough for people to have a conversation, although the other patrons in our semi secluded area might have felt otherwise. JD liked the WW II aviation decor and took some pictures. In fact, several of us liked that decor, since there are more than a few military history fans in the group.
The good was very good and as always the conversations were better. When I say conversations, I mean several, all going on at once. Which made for some interesting juxtapositions and seemingly odd replies to questions. Not that it mattered because we all seemed to know what was being discussed. Or at least I think so.
Christina circulated around the table meeting everyone she hadn’t met and saying hello to those who whom she already knew. Not only was that a good idea, so blindingly obvious I’m embarrassed I didn’t think of it, but layout of KC’s made it easy to do.
Update: I forgot to mention that Christina said she enjoyed my “medical rants”. I’ve never thought of them as such, but I can see how someone else might. It just struck me as humorous to hear my posts characterized that way.
Christina is utterly charming. We introduced ourselves and my “I love your blog.”, was a nano second ahead of hers. As with any profession where you deal primarily with people, the stories about odd behavior are almost constant. We talked about her sojourn (I guess that’s the right word) through nursing school and living in the northeast. I hope she blogs her way through nursing school, because the stories will be entertaining to say the least.
At some point one of us referred to JayG as the “premier gun blogger in MA”. Turns out he’s pretty much the only gun blogger in Massachusetts. He’s also starting to get notoriety on the national gun blogging stage. Well earned I say. He also puts a lot of effort into these blogger get togethers and deserves hour hardy thanks.
Major Caudill was unable to attend, but Marko fortunately was. As always, it was nice to see him.
Also as always, the time flew by too quickly. Before I knew it, it was time to say goodbye, make some initial plans for future meets, and then head for home.
