Fifth Annual Mobbies Awards @ Creative Alliance Tonight

So the Mobbies bash is tonight from 6:30-8:30. You should go. Even if you don’t have a blog or anything. You’re obviously reading this so you clearly have at least a basic working knowledge of blogs and Baltimore City, and that’s enough. Besides, you’re probably on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Tumblr, Reddit or some combination of those. At least one, right? Well this is a good chance to meet some people from there and drink beer with them. And score a free sushi/Japanese dinner.

We already wrote up a fairly long post about the current state of Blogging in general and Baltimore especially, so we’re not going to repeat anything today. You can check it out at this link.

What we will do is take this opportunity to say thanks to the Sun for running the contest again this year and good luck to the staffers there for whom this is ‘their first rodeo’ so to speak.

Of course, the Sun’s purview only involves managing the contest and planning the party, so there’s been no mention on Facebook or Twitter or anywhere we’ve seen about an after party. Not sure about you but a two hour event with 30 minutes or so given over to awards does not constitute a full night of drinking for the Chop. Not even on a Tuesday.

So we’re just going to throw it out there that there ought to at least be an unofficial designated bar nearby. Our vote goes to ‘Irish Pub’ which is on Clinton just above Eastern, right behind Haussner’s. Other good choices are the Laughing Pint, Baltimore Taphouse and of course, Bad Decisions.

One thing’s certain though- wherever the night may take us we’re very likely to end up sauced on Jameson and watching Dog With a Blog on On Demand. Hands Down new favorite show. Stan is a dog! He has a blog! And he writes in it on every episode just like Doogie Howser M.D. used to. He’s also high-strung and precocious like Mr. Ed was. Oh yeah and he talks, duh. But the parents don’t know that. He only talks to the kids.

It doesn’t matter who wins or loses tonight. The real winners are Avery, Tyler and Chloe.
