The Great Gangplank Blarney Blowout

It’s that time of year again! When we throw cultural sensitivity to the wind and portray an entire society as a bunch of green-wearing, beer-drinking, tale-telling, make-out (Kiss me I’m Irish!) kings and queens.

So, by god! Put on that green, grab a dance partner and join us at the Gangplank for what is truly a New Babbage tradition now YEARS in the running.  We’ll be tuning our radio to Radio Riel main for the fabulous Gabrielle Riel’s Irish playlist and generally carrying on like the pile of mad-hatters we are. 

Shamrock poofers and a spiffy green top-hat are being provided by the marvelous Tesla Tripsa.

See you there!

Tesla Tripsa and Kaylee Frye will be co-hostessing, since we all know my laptop likes to decide it doesn’t run when I throw events. Be prepared to jig!
