So the LiveFight title is going to be "Name the Baby", then.

Mucho congrats, Jon!

Plus, saving up for the impending expense kind of precludes travel for at least a few months in either direction.

Did someone say Portland? I realize my participation has been, shall we say, lackluster of late, but I'm happy to help you wrangle, RG, if Stumptown is the popular vote!

If it were in Portland, what timing would be good? I was considering going to the XOXO festival this year.

August 14th-16th has had the least amount of dissent... the weekend before eliminates Albatross, the weekend after's a monster music festival in town. July's June's out for me, have to marry my sister down in the Bay Area (officiating the ceremony, perv ;-)) on an as yet undisclosed date.

Nothing's in stone, though. So polls/campaigning/what have you is welcome.

XOXO doesn't seem to have 2015 info up yet. (Ah! Portland!) But my cursory Google seems to indicate that it has usually happened in September. So... this won't conflict with that? (It's not a terrible thing to come to Portland twice in one summer.) ;)

CR, perhaps we can steer you away from the Corona and into something a little more local and, um, unusual...

Actually, something has come up that weekend. There is a music festival in Walla Walla that weekend, and Buffalo Jones (the band I am in) is in the process of attempting to get a gig there. Rach an I might be unavailable August 14th- 16th if that happens.

Heya Glenn, when will you know about BJ's participation in the festival in Walla Walla...

That doesn't... wait... naw...

July just opened up, if necessary (marrying my sister in June, as it turns out).

I really really hope that's just poor phrasing.

BJ's, sister marrying... Maybe this should be Songfight: Kinky and Drinky.

I have taken steps to free up August 14-16, and am working on finding cheap plane tickets. Never been on the west coast before, and I'd love to do this! I have friends in Portland, and if I can arrange it, I'd like to visit my brother up in Leavenworth WA while I'm out that way.

Of course, I will wait until things are more 'official' before pulling the trigger on this. But there's an organic brewer's festival in Portland August 13-16, and that would make for a pretty good weekend all around. So, hoping it all lines up.
