In case you are like me, and were not entirely sure what exactly is a Blogapalooza:

 A Blogapalooza is a link between the online community of people who love to share information and organizations and businesses that have something interesting and worthwhile to share.

Thank you, Joey and Fellow Bloggers!

Sir Blog-a-lot organized a Blogapalooza for last night at  Cape Ann Brewing. It was a great way to meet all of those who regularly contribute to GMG’s success, many who have their own blogs. AND another birthday celebration. This time mixed with a little beer, cake, and a whole lot of crude, rude fun! Thanks to you all! Maybe birthdays are okay after all! 🙂 Joey will have more info on last night’s get-together soon, I’m sure!

The First Ever Cape Ann Blogapalooza

With a little over 24 hours total planning we got about 20 or so of Cape Ann’s Blogging community together for a meeting of the minds and to enjoy each other’s company.  The Cape Ann Online community was well represented.  We live video blogged from Cape Ann Brewing Company, had a cake for Sharon’s 60th Birthday and enjoyed a rousing rendition of Happy Birthday from Alexander Thompson and Gardy.  What were the words to that song again?  All I know is it ended with “DEATH”

Fun was had by all. I’d love to make Cape Ann an official Chapter of the Beer and Blog group but after reading their guidelines they require a weekly meetup.  Weekly seems like a bit much for an old man like me but if there is enough interest I’d love to sign us up to be a chapter.  I’d only be able to make about one or two a month tops though.

I’d like to thank the kind gentleman at the local supermarket who put the words on the cake for me without batting an eyelash.


Cape Ann Brewing was really a fantastic spot for the meetup with it’s long benches it allowed for a communal sharing of ideas and a free flow of people buzzing around.

I can’t believe they had their hours rolled back to an 8:30PM closing time when they were going for an actual extension to regular hours at last night’s liquor licensing hearing.

We should discuss weather we should change locations every so often or keep it at Cape Ann Brewing.  If people would like to mix it up a bit the one requirement would be that the joint would have to offer free wifi.

If the Blog and Beer guidelines do not allow us to become a chapter under their banner we will stick with the Cape Ann Blogapalooza moniker and just add roman numerals after each meetup.
