BCC & 9 Moons SoCal Bloggersnacker (UPDATE)


In just under 2 weeks , Tomorrow evening, By Common Consent and 9 Moons will form an unholy union for an evening of munching and mingling. Rusty Clifton and Susan M from 9 Moons will co-host the event with Scott & Cynthia from BCC, with MikeInWeHo serving as chaperone and designated driver throughout the evening.

Can you think of any better way to skip the State of the Union Address?!?

Bloggersnacker! Food, friends, & fun.

Tuesday, January 25, 2011 at 7:00 PM(-ish)

Downtown Disney in Anaheim, California. Parking is free for 3 hours, and you do not need to pay for entrance into the theme park. Specific restaurant/eatery is still TBD. We will be meeting at the La Brea Bakery Cafe in Downtown Disney. Get your specific driving directions here.


    Bloggernaclers of all kinds:

  • Bloggers
  • Commenters
  • Lurkers–Please, come and hang out with us. It won’t be weird or awkward at all, unless you try to make Cynthia stop watching the POTUS’s speech on her BlackBerry
  • Significant others
  • Children (Downtown Disney is very kid-friendly)
  • Anyone who has an interest in hanging out or getting to know a bunch of cool Mormons.

What To Do Next
RSVP in the comments below! Also, send an email to me at scottb (at) bycommonconsent (dot) com, and I’ll send more information and details as the event approaches.


  1. Observer (f.k.a. Eric. S.) says:

    I’m there fo’ sho’. I’m missed the last one, so I’m really looking forward to this.

  2. Awesome!

    I would love to attend, so I’ll try to arrange it. The House of Blues is my favorite place to eat in Downtown Disney, but it can be kinda noisy.

  3. McQueue, are you going to be down here?

  4. I hope my announcement that I will be there will not too badly dampen attendance.

  5. Probably not, Scott, but you never know.

  6. This is what we’ll do: since it’s the night of the State of the Union address, every time someone new shows up, the rest of us will stand and applaud. Then, whenever someone has to leave, we will awkwardly refuse to stand and applaud.

  7. Mike will be the best. chaperone. ever.

  8. Who will jump up from a few tables away and interject, “You Lie!”?

  9. I’ll be there.

  10. This is SOOOO unfair! I want to come!!!! :-( RJH, are you really coming? I might just die right now. I have nothing to live for anymore. I was just IN california!!

  11. Actually, I lied. I’m cruel sometimes.

  12. We need a UK bloggersnacker.

  13. You mean a blogger-tea-and-crumpets?

  14. Exactly. Or hot chocolate.

  15. Yeah, yeah, Ronan. Well, I’m in California twice a year and I’ve still never met Susan. Yeah you, Susan! You need to come up to the Bay Area at some point!

    UKSnacker-O.K. That’s actually easier for me to make to. I’ll be there in July…

  16. Ben Park, I think a UK one would be good. I wonder how many UK lurkers there are?

  17. It sounds fun although I am not able to come. I could be the uncool conservative in attendance :)

  18. Mark Brown says:

    C’mon people, lets get some more RSVPs rolling in!

    Scott has set a goal of thirty attendees, and as an incentive he has promised to allow everybody to address him all evening long as ‘Jimmer B.’

  19. I will send a pre-recorded message.

  20. Serendipitous timing–four days later and I would have showed up.

  21. MikeInWeHo says:

    I wish you could attend bbell !! You could be the conservative yin to my liberal yang. The whole thing would wind up like this:

  22. Serendipitous timing–four days later and I would have showed up.

    Whew! Dodged a bullet there!

  23. Peter LLC says:

    Whew! Dodged a bullet there!

    Feel free to use this as an example of everyday inspiration!

  24. Peter,
    Knowing that you don’t live in SoCal is what gives me the confidence to get out of bed each morning.

  25. 21 – I didn’t know that the editors of the Watchtower used to work for Coca-Cola.

    I did however know that coke can bring peace and harmony to the world. Anyone who has met me first thing in the morning before I get my fix knows this as well.

  26. I’ll try to make it.

  27. I’m a co-host? I hope that means I get to show up late, sit in the back and avoid eye contact with people.

  28. Susan,
    No, that’s what I’m planning on doing. You need to dress like you’re going to a metal concert.

  29. Steve Fleming,
    Where are you located? Anything we can do to encourage you to show?

  30. I don’t dress any different than I normally do for a metal concert…In fact I only own about three pairs of pants and about four t-shirts. And they’re all the same color.

    I’m not autistic at all.

  31. Looks like I will likely be there too. :)

  32. Yaaay! Best news I could have gotten.

  33. I don’t know any of you. Can I still come?

  34. Of course. I don’t know any of these people, either.

  35. MikeInWeHo says:

    Absolutely, Becca. That’s the whole point, to get to know each other in person.

  36. I should be able to make it (I’m a frequent commenter on kulturblog, occasional lurker on nine moons and other moblogs).

  37. Becca,
    You are very welcome, no matter how few of us you know.

    Mike d.,
    You are also welcome. Will Ad-Rock and MCA be making an appearance as well? It’d be great if all the BBs were there!

  38. Dude, you wish!

  39. I would settle for MCQ instead of MCA, I guess.

  40. Hmm, thinking about it. Though driving from San Diego would involve fighting rush hour to get there around 7…

  41. kristine N–
    Cynthia will be doing it! You guys could carpool, maybe?

  42. That would have been fun. Alas…

  43. I’ve chosen the better part. Sitting there letting some MD stick a needle in my left eye. Way more fun than meeting this bunch.

  44. Scott, now it can be revealed. I AM MCA.

  45. MCQ,
    Does that mean you’ll be joining mike d at the Snacker?!?

  46. Kevin Barney says:

    I think this may be a record for number of comments on a snacker announcement!

  47. 47!

  48. Oh good, it worked. I was really afraid I would do that and it would turn out that someone else commented while I was writing and I would look really stupid.

  49. If I came down I’d have to get my fix at the Rainforest Cafe! Used to be my favorite when I was younger and sadly most of them have closed down. And my husband won’t go with me because he says it’s the worst food ever- what can I say? I’m a sucker for themed restaurants…Casa Bonita anyone?

  50. Merkat,
    We can absolutely eat elsewhere–that’s just the meeting place!

  51. I just want to point out that if you believe that Cynthia is actually going to ignore the State of the Union speech, instead of surreptiously checking in on it every 5 minutes, then you are wrong. As wrong as a wrong thing is wrong.

  52. I am jealous. Have fun!

  53. MCQ I really wish you could be there.

  54. Freaks.

  55. I’m not going to make it but I expect a full report. also, since I have Rusty’s cell number, I’ll be calling and harassing you during dinner.

  56. Excellent time had by all–thanks to everyone who came. We had 19 people (including kids) show up, which exceeded our attendance from the previous Snacker. Good times.

  57. MikeInWeHo says:

    Agreed! A good time was had by all. Scott and I discussed some fun ideas for future Zeitcasts…..

  58. Observer (f.k.a. Eric. S.) says:

    It was a good time, thank you for organizing it. Among other important matters, I learned that there is free parking in Pinocchio after 6 p.m.

  59. Free Parking in Pinocchio, ftw.

  60. I talked to Rusty as he was parking, then called again later but he didn’t answer. Lame!

    Hope you all had a great time, though that’s not quite fair without me. I really hope you didn’t eat at the Rainforest Cafe. That’s the worst food I’ve ever had.

  61. MCQ/MCA,
    We didn’t eat there–we just munched at the La Brea Bakery. The food was kind of meh–so I heard, anyway. I was too busy engaging in a frenetic lightsaber duel with my son and SB2’s kids to eat anything…

  62. Sounds fun. The La Brea bakery is ok, but I love the food at the House of Blues, and you were only steps away! They do frown on lightsaber duels there though, so maybe it was just as well.

  63. Motorhead was playing at the HOB. Last time I saw them there was a huge barrel full of wallet chains people had to discard on their way in. Word to the wise: Leave your wallet chains at home when attending a Motorhead show.
