9/9/2012 Nametags – One Week to Go

Is it just a week before the release-signing party for Beer, Brats, and Baseball? The one from 2 to 5 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 16 at Al Smith’s Feasting Fox Restaurant, 4200 S. Grand Blvd., St. Louis? That’s just enough time for an idea to help everybody meet the people coming to the party who also are in the book. There’s a bunch of them.

Here’s what we’ll do. People in the book will get one kind of nametag. Those who aren’t in the book will wear another. Then everyone will ask those in the book why they’re there, adding to the fun. As I’ve said, there will be no lack of conversation.

See you at the Feasting Fox next Sunday.
