YPP Happy Hour

I stopped in briefly at the YPP (Young Philly Politics) Happy Hour this evening. There were a lot of interesting people there. I had a chance to see Valerie McDonald Roberts again, and plan to vote for her on Tuesday. Anne Dicker and Tony Payton were there but always surrounded by crowds so I wasn't able to get a close look or listen. As a very pleasant surprise, someone I had written about earlier was there and I elbowed a path over to say hello. I'm not sure he/she was supposed to be there so I won't mention any names. There were a few other candidates around, too. Some big name bloggers as well. Atrios, Daniel UA of YPP, and Chris Bowers of mydd among them. Ray Murphy played host admirably.

The room was packed and everyone seemed to be having a good time. My special thanks to the man in the blue shirt who struck up a conversation while I was still trying to find my "party feet."

Hi Jane. Sorry I missed you there. I was wearing a blue shirt, but I don't recall speaking to you. I didn't realize Duncan was there either. I did get to meet Chris from MyDD and Dan from YPP, and it was great finally getting to hear Valerie McDonald Roberts speak. I was hanging out with Anne for a while after the speeches, and it was neat hearing from inside the campaign. Fun times all around.

Tom,

Sounds like you had a good time, too! Everyone seems to have positive things to say about Anne Dicker -- hope things go well for her on Tuesday.

I had no idea you were there Jane. Not that I would have had a clue what you look like, so trying to find you in that crowd would have been quite a trick. I'm sorry I missed meeting you in person. Oh well, maybe some day.
