And heaven help me, because it didn't go so well for me last time.
Dang, I'd love to go again, although I've been spending a bit much lately. Ah hell, I always say that, but then I do it anyway. Maybe Nosregref wants to go this time. And maybe this time I'll stifle my bright idea to continue drinking afterward at the Draught House and won't end up puking. (Again: Ah hell, I always say that, but then I do it anyway.)
In the unlikely event you live in Austin and don't know where Central Market North is, go to their website and register for the "class" here.
Here's the details:

Hold me. I'm afraid.
UPDATE: Okay, I'm going, along with Nosregref and Lance. Oh well, so much for the being broke part. Now, about the puking …
Karla, wish you could join us – affairs like this almost always need more estrogen.
ONE MORE EDIT: I feel compelled to say, based on my previous experience: taking mass transit or a cab home from this event is not a bad idea.
