Have fun. I went to one of those in Raleigh some years back. It was fun and I got to meet Rick Jeanneret, Lindy Ruff, Harry Neale, and Kevin Sylvester. Rick was knocking beers back left and right

Cool.  This one is advertised as having Bray May, Rob Ray, Danny Gare, Rene Robert, Brian Duff, and Dan Dunleavy (so no Rick, but still a solid group).  How large are these Road Crew outings usually?  I know they capped the # of tickets because they sold out, but I have no idea what to expect.

I think it depends on the venue. When I went it was held at this restaurant a few miles from the Canes arena called Buffalo Brothers pizza. There were probably 200 or so people there but it was many years and countless beers ago so my memory may be a little fuzzy. We showed up early and ordered a pizza we paid for but they also set up a buffet that was included with the price of admission. Probably an hour or so into the official start time was when there was a chance to line up and get pictures or autographs with the VIPs but the place will be filled with Sabres fans so there's always friendlies to converse with. They also played the Top Shelf dvd of RJ on a loop on all the tvs in the restaurant when I went and I hadn't see it before that so watching that kept me entertained as well.

Good to know -- thanks!  I haven't been to this restaurant/bar yet, so I have no idea how big it is.  Brought a jersey along to wear tonight in case they were signing stuff.   :D

They'll definitely sign stuff. The whole road crew concept is to give a big thank you to Sabres outside of the Buffalo area. It should be definitely be autograph friendly. Hell, when I went the Pegula's didn't even own the team yet. I imagine if they changed anything it would be to make the experience even better for everyone. You'll have a blast. Get a picture putting up your dukes with Rob Ray or something. He wasn't at the one I attended, I would've loved to meet him. He may be a big dumb lug who gets way too much grief on these boards, but he's our big dumb lug, dammit.

LOVE IT.  :lol:  Should I bring a marker for signing, or will they have them there?  I didn't think to grab one at home, but there are plenty at work I could "borrow".

They'll probably have them, but I'd take one just in case, especially if you want them to sign your jersey.

I'd gotten my taxes about 90% done back in Jan., but I intentionally held off on filing this year because I knew I was going to owe $ for a change after not having a full year of mortgage interest to deduct and having taken some money out of my retirement account last year without holding taxes.  Was very pleasantly surprised this week when I did finish them up and found that after all my deductions were accounted for, I only ended up owing $92.   :D

Also fantastic:  we interviewed a junior tech earlier in the week that we liked, and while HR is still putzing around with the formal offer letter, he accepted the verbal offer today and will start April 3rd.  We also did a phone interview yesterday with a supervisor candidate that seems very promising, and will hopefully be able to meet her in person sometime in the next two weeks (she's not local).  Thank God we're finally going to get some assistance here so I don't have to do everything myself!!

This design I'm working on for 26 Shirts is coming together SO WELL and I love it... unfortunately I don't think they'll release it until October. But man, I'm stoked for it when it happens. 

 

And crazy client likes what I'm doing for them so far. And I have loose plans to grab coffee with a former RIT kid who now works in sports/design in Buffalo once I move in next month. 

I guess for a jobless ne'er do well artist, it's a pretty Good Friday.

Many awesomes, here. Kids are essentially independent, so Mrs. Neo and I are on South Beach! I'm tanned, rum runnered, and getting ready for a steak and evening counting Bentleys and Lamborghinis ... I should've been an Oligarch. Why don't my hips move like that?!

JJ, are you close by? Is anyone?

Bump ...

My wife has been encouraging me to reach out to a long lost cousin that I have not seen, or talked to, in 40 years.

Got her email address recently and after a few weeks of getting myself ready (long term members here may remember that I am, relatively mildly, Autistic and these things are very difficult for me) I reached out to her.

She replied and everything is fantastic.
