[food|repost] Open dinner in Rockville, Maryland Sunday 2014-01-05

This is a repost, with light edits for clarity.

As mentioned, I am holding an open dinner today, Sunday January 5th, at 5 pm at Gordon Biersch in Rockville, MD.

200 East Middle Lane, Unit A
Rockville, MD 20850
301-340-7159

As always, these are Dutch treat, and anyone who can read this is invited. We don’t need to be old friends or even online acquaintances, though I do love to see my friends. The whole point is to meet people, after all.

I’m aware the weather today may be poor, but it’s the only time slot I have this trip than I can commit to without the reasonable possibility of cancellation. Unless the weather is truly dreadful, I will be there. Please RSVP if you can, it helps with talking to the restaurant.

See some, all or none of you there!

[cancer] JayWake is today

Small Clockwork Departure You are invited to my pre-mortem wake and roast, a somewhat morbid, deeply irreverent, but joyous celebration of me. This is a time for celebrating my life, loves, and dark, twisted sense of humor. Bring your stories (hysterical, at my expense), your tasteless jokes, and any and all expressions gleefully macabre. Come party with the man who has never passed up the chance to poke cancer in the eye and laugh about it.

Date/Time:
Today, Saturday, July 27, 6:PM – ?

Location:
Holiday Inn Portland Airport
8439 NE Columbia Blvd
Portland, OR 97220

There will be a buffet dinner for guests who RSVP. RSVP-ing tells us how many people to prepare for. Please email jaywakereg@gmail.com or reply to the Facebook event to RSVP. Donations will be accepted (but not required) to offset the cost of the meal.

Roast:
The Roast will begin at about 7:30. Be warned: the jokes and stories contained herein will not only push the boundaries of good taste, they will leapfrog over the boundaries blowing a raspberry. This is not a time to say how I touched your life. This is a time to say how I touched you inappropriately. Please contact jaywake.questions@gmail.com for information on being a scheduled speaker.

Donations:
We will be accepting donations to offset the cost of the meal and event. Use the PayPal button below, or contact jaywake.questions@gmail.com if you’d like to donate in another way.

Sandra Tayler and the JayWake Book
The mighty @sandratayler is working on the Jay Wake Book. She’s looking for pictures, stories and other material about me. As Sandra says:

Our friend Jay has been diagnosed with terminal cancer and is hosting his own wake, Jay Wake, which Howard and I are attending. We know that other friends of Jay would love to be able to come, but can’t for a multitude of reasons. The Jay Wake Book is a project to let everyone participate in the celebration of Jay. I’ll be collecting stories, art, and photos of Jay to compile into the book. The first iteration of this book will be presented to Jay at Jay Wake. The second iteration will include stories and photos collected at Jay Wake. It will be made generally available either in electronic or print version.

Please contribute if you can.
