Storm’s a Brewin’


Alright Ministers, Rabbi and friends. MOM’s got that tingly feeling in his left foot again, which can only mean one thing, IFS South Lake Tahoe meeting!

So far we have a sizable crew going and I encourage any minister who is on the fence to sack up and make the drive, you won’t regret it.  Your brothers want you there.

The address of the Restaurant is:

Blue Angel Cafe Address:
1132 Ski Run Blvd
South Lake Tahoe, CA 96150

So far we have a number of guests and more are welcome if there are any last minute add-ons.  The more the merrier.  Many ministers, especially those of the North-State persuasion will be arriving earlier in the day Thursday.  I will be heading up the Glory-Train which will leave LA after work Thursday and arrive in Tahoe in the wee hours.

Tentative schedule:
Thursday Arrival – Those who are there early can open up the ‘Hurt Locker’ and see what’s inside.  Hopefully there are a few soldiers left standing when the Glory Train pulls into the station around 2am.  If all goes well, I expect to see Letters playing the air-drums and dancing by himself amongst drunken sleeping bodies.

Friday – IFS Summer Meeting (9-11am at the Blue Angel Cafe)
After the meeting there is a possible field trip to North Lake Tahoe where my brother and his younger hooligan friends are living in a cabin on the Lake for the summer. (Y&T 2)  The owners are family friends and have offered to allow us to some and hang out at the Lake for the afternoon.  They have a boat or two as well as other water-based entertainment.  They graciously offered to feed us and allow us to enjoy their Lakeside jam for the afternoon.  This should allow us to see the other side of Tahoe and relax for the afternoon before returning to the South Lake area for the evening.  Naturally this is not a mandatory trip, and if some ministers want to hit the casinos straight away, no problem.  Just an option.

In the evening we will return to South Lake and enjoy an evening on the Town, Casinos, Buffets, Cabin, you know, Make Party.

We have all day to enjoy our Nation’s Independence Day in South Lake Tahoe, no concrete plans.  If we can commandeer a boat to be on the water for a fire works show, that’d be great, but I’m sure being drunk at the casinos/cabin will also be fun.  Perhaps Cutie Pie can lead a break dance battle party in honor of MJ.  We’ll play this one by ear.  If anyone has any ideas or thoughts on particular activities, please post a comment. 
The Lows are always lower than the Highs are high.  We make an attempt to clean up our mess, and limp home to resume our boring lives whilst dreaming of the next IFS gathering.   

And remember….. Gooooood Flapjack

    I hope everyone made it home safely with a Hoob burrito in their stomach. Great long weekend, thanks to everyone who made it such an awesome time, and especially to JCon who put it all together so we could slap our troubles away. Let’s see some 3’s! Threeees!
    Oh and to the ones who decided fireworks needed to be used at 5am on the 5th, sleep with one eye open.

    I’m so sad and happy. This sounds so strong. Don’t think ’bout those lows when you’re making those highs, it’ll work out better that way.
    Will miss you monks.

    So much party to make, my pants are full.
    Nerd question. Will either our cabin or the breakfast joint have wi-fi? We failed at this before, but a little video could go a long ways for those unable to attend.
    Flying to Sac Town tomorrow night with Y+T, can’t wait to get out of this dump.
