Post Reason Rally Party!

After the Jon Stewart/Stephen Colbert Rally in 2010, a bunch of atheists got together at the Lauriol Plaza Restaurant in Washington, D.C.

Since the Reason Rally is only weeks away, I thought I should mention a party we’re throwing afterwards! (By “we,” I’m referring to the writers at this site, the folks at Freethought Blogs, and several YouTubers.)

We’re going to have a(n Unofficial) Post Reason Rally Party at the Lauriol Plaza Restaurant after the rally. The management has asked that people arrive between 5:30-6:00p but you can stay till whenever! Everyone pays for their own food. We tip nicely. We meet new people. We make friends. We sacrifice someone. Everyone leaves with a smile on their face.

There’s only room for the first 150 people, so please get there early :) Hope to see you there.

If you can’t get in (or don’t want to go), there’s a growing list of additional events complementing the Reason Rally over here. Check them out, too.

    Camels With Hammers will be there! Looking forward to meeting you and Richard, Hemant!

  • Hank Fox

    The Blue Collar Atheist will be there!

    Taking into account the 150-person limit, though: The thought occurs to me that some of the actual bloggers might be left out in the cold.  Any way to guarantee entrance to FtBers who get lost (something I do often) and arrive late?

    Lauriol Plaza is one of our favorite restaurants in DC, food is good, margaritas are very good, and it’s reasonably priced. We went to the dinner after the Stewart/Colbert and will be at this one too. And it’s only 4 blocks from home :-)

    Immediately after the Stewart/Colbert Rally, the Metro subway station near the Mall was jammed so solidly that people were backed up the escalator and into the street for most of a block.  I decided to walk to Lauriol Plaza. It was 2.6 miles, and with the crowded sidewalks, it took about an hour. I expect that the situation will be similar this year.

    Important change: This morning, The Reason Rally website said that it would officially end at 4:00 PM. This evening it now says that it will end at 6:00 PM. So I guess I’ll have to leave early to get to the restaurant by 5:30.

    Having to leave the rally 90 minutes early is a sad development.

      oh man! wonder why the time change. :-( I wonder if the time of dinner will be postponed. hmm

     “We sacrifice someone.” Ha ha. That’s funny because Jesus died after a big party.
