Attendance for the Atlanta People With Blogs who Get Together to Drink night was pretty low. Duane, Lori, Dave, RecoveringBaptist (and sweet wife) made it to Halo. After Mr. and Mrs, R. Baptist called it a night, a trip to the Vortex was made.

Tots and dogs were eaten, drinks had, and a shiny, mirrorball-like jacket was spotted. Later, Mr. and Mrs. P'body showed before we called it a night.
Duane already blogged about it, and I'm agreeing with him. The night's not the same with just a few showing up. The fun is in the numbers and there were times when we were the biggest group in the bar. But 6 made it to Halo and only 4 continued on to The Vortex.
So, here my take on the situation... if one of these applies:
You are not an Atlanta person now,
You are not or have not attended any of the monthly drinking meetups,
... than you are failing to be one of the Atlanta People With Blogs who Get Together to Drink. If you are part of APWBWGTTD to get you readership up, I'm sure there are loads of other means to doing so. If you regret missing the meetings, blog saying so. We want to know. Parents, we know it's hard to go out with children, but there is always a reason to join us...
If you have reasons that keeps you from enjoying drinking and strong opinions from many sides, than why not find a group is more like that. If you aren't joining in the fun, why not remove yourself from the site feed? Or site moderators could do it as well. Opinions? If it's not "Atlanta People With Blogs who Get Together to Drink", the site should have a name change reflecting that. It's either time to get this ship back on track or abandon it all together.
If you are, or ever were, an APWBWGTTD that is wishing to get back in the swing of things, welcome back. We missed you and your ability to drink and laugh. I read the comments on Duane's blog, and some of your are itching to come out again, which is nice to hear.
That's my 2 cents. Cheers.
