The HocoBlogs Web site does a great job of bringing together writers from Howard County, and its driving force Jessie X strives for more -- namely face-to-face time for people who write and read local blogs.
HowChow and the HoCo Rising blog are co-hosting a happy hour on Thursday, October 21 at Kloby's Smokehouse just off Rte 29 on Johns Hopkins Road.
The bloggers will settle in for some beer, wings and maybe some barbecue pork. Or maybe ribs. You're on your own for your tab, but you can share a table and talk local food or local politics. The HoCo Rising can talk about both. I'll stick to the food -- and get Trevor to expound on the liberal politics of Sam Zell and Robert McCormick. We're inviting anyone whose work appears on HocoBlogs and anyone who reads us. Come share your tips, your opinions, your suggestions for the future.

HowChow/HoCo Rising Happy Hour w/HocoBlogs
Thursday, October 21, 2010 -- 5:30 to about 8 pm
7500 Montpelier Road
Laurel, MD 20723
NEAR: On Johns Hopkin Road just west of Rte 29. This is really the border of Columbia and Fulton. It's not Laurel. Kloby's is in a shopping center with a Subway, a liquor store and La Palapa Too just east of the JHU Applied Physics Lab.
