    Woah! I stopped in there randomly one evening while I was in the area on other business. I remember it being an enjoyable establishment and wanting to return. Unfortunate about it closing.

    It's an icon and a holdover from Hanover when it was a quiet rural area.

    Definitely going to try to make this one... for a number of reasons. IfI remember correctly, Smokey Pig is where I had my first OC get together/dinner after a gun show, with Skidmark, Tess and crew, and some others... uh, it's my birthday (and I'll be wearing my birthday suit... under my clothes..., I know, I can hear a loud, collective "Whew"all the way out here..., don't want to make you other guys feel inadequate...), and dang it, they'vebeen mighty accommodating to us OC'ers, so I feel fairly obliged.

    Put me down for1, for sure, with a very possible steady increase up to the date.

    Ooooh, I wish I could come. :-( I like the Smokey PIg. But I'll be in Germany, and that might be a bit too much of a commute.

    Grape, with the new board system if you use Courier font and the full WYSIWYG editor mode you can make the columns line up perfectly.

    See?

    I remember you mentioned this before, so figured I'd point it out.

    There might be a way to avoid using periods for the spacing as well, using a hardspace via the ALT key and the number pad. I don't have a number pad on the right of this keyboard so I can't test it. But from what I remember the code is ALT+0160 (numbers have to be hit on the number pad) and then once you have one space you can just highlight and CTRL+C to copy and CTRL+P to paste it for hard spacing that doesn't get ignored/left out of the final post. I would try it.. but like I said no number pad, so maybe someone else can/will.

    Ha.. or JUST use evite.com which does it all for you, invites folks by email, they can change from yes, no or maybe and they get a reminder a day before the event.

    I'm betting it's easier for some to keep all the info here on OCDO rather than add yet another bookmark to an already teeming folder.
