Our next meetup for 2009 is scheduled for Sunday, March 1st. Meet us at Fionn MacCool’s on the north side in Fishers. http://maccoolsirishpub.com/home.htm at 6:00 PM.
See you all there!
This Sunday at 6pm. Downtown at the Slippery Noodle.
Here’s the wiki-skinny on the Noodle:
The Slippery Noodle Inn is a large blues bar and restaurant with two performance stages in downtown Indianapolis, Indiana. It also has the distinction of being the oldest continuously operating bar in the state of Indiana, having opened in 1850 as the Tremont House.
The Inn served as a stop on the Underground Railroad during the American Civil War. During prohibition it was called a restaurant although beer was still being made in the basement, and later it housed a brothel until 1953.
The Inn is the oldest commercial building in the city. Its tin ceiling dates to 1890 and the oak bar is also over a century old. The Inn has operated under its current name since 1963, and has hosted many legendary blues performers during that time.
Isn’t that cool?
Wanted to say a quick thank you to all who came out to the October 2008, Indy Webcomics Group meetup at Shallos on the south side. We had Me (Lee), Sam, Ed, Bob, Dan, and Wayne as usual. Kyle Latino also made it to the meetup, which I hope becomes a habit because I love his work. Wayne brought along some family with him this time. It was great to meet you Don and Courtney. And Daryl Pyle, local charicature artist and friend of our own Bob East, made his first appearance at one of our meetups. Was great to meet you Daryl, hope to see you again at the next one.
Anyone I’ve mentioned can respond to this post with a comment and include their website address. It’s too late for me to go reseraching and digging those up myself. Besides, most of you are already linked in our sidebar.
Check back Wednesday for the Jam Comic we all finished at the meetup.
In other news; Sam, Mike, Kyle and I participated in 24 Hour Comic Day as I posted about earlier. My friend Jeff Himes, who stopped by to show his support did a quick write-up about it here. I’ve added some pictures Jeff took of us working to the IWG photo album. Check ‘em out!
It seems we’re powerless to stop tradition. It’s now been over a year since our first cookout back in ought seven. A lot of things have changed, perhaps the date being the most obvious of them.
We had record turnout, just the right amount of food and good times. Unfortunately, we were all too busy to bother taking any pictures for the album. My most sincere apologies.
I can only assure you that punitive measures have been taken and those responsible have been punished to the full extent of the law. That law being that wherever people get together and have a party, some jerk is gonna take out his flip phone and start taking pictures. And if he doesn’t, the host of the party is required to go out back and cut a “switch” which is to be longer than his arm but no wider at the base than his thumb. So, thank you to everyone who made it. Old friends and new acquaintances. You’re welcome back anytime.
And now that it’s officially October, it behooves us to pick a date for our next Indy Webcomics Group meetup. October 19th or 26th look promising. What do you all think? October 25th may also be a good date since that is when the Next Panel Alternative Comics Expo is happening, in Urbana Illinois. We might be able to make this a group day-trip and drive out together. In that case it would count as our regular meetup for this month and we’d resume meeting up as usual in November.
Also, don’t forget Mid-Ohio Con is this weekend. I’m sure a few of us are planning on going. Perhaps we will see you there? It may happen!
