The #AARSBL15 Bloggers Dinner

It was a fantastic event, and I will let the pictures speak for themselves for the most part. But I do want to thank Meehan’s for providing a great venue and delicious food and drinks, and our waiter Sean who took care of us so well. If I counted correctly, 36 people attended. Thank you [Read More...]

#AARSBL15 Bloggers’ Gathering Change of Venue

When I picked Gibney’s for the Bloggers’ gathering, I didn’t notice an important detail: they are closed on Sundays! And so let’s move the event to Meehan’s Public House, at 200 Peachtree Street, just 3 minutes’ walk from the Convention Center.

Best Night for SBLAARggers Gathering?

Brian LePort may have ended up calling us something rude in British English (he’ll probably fix it), but his question is still an important one. He is asking when the best day is for an evening gathering of bloggers at AAR/SBL, or whether a lunch or breakfast would be preferable. Click through and chime in [Read More...]

SBLAARggers Gathering

Brian Le Port posted about the annual bibliobloggers' gathering for this year's SBL and AAR annual meeting in Baltimore. I think that it is high time that we fully included the AAR folks. And so let's start calling it the SBLAARggers Gathering. We agreed in the past that #SBLAAR is a better hashtag to use, [Read More...]

Bibliobloggers’ Gathering at SBL: Only Two Questions Remain Unanswered

Of the classic questions that every reporter is taught to ask, only two remain to be answered about this year’s bibliobloggers’ gathering: when and where. Since people have sometimes struggled to be available for dinner at SBL, perhaps this year we should make it a gathering for drinks, somewhere that people can eat, but don’t necessarily have to?
