On March 13, I will be holding a fund-raising dinner for the blog in Washington DC from 7:00 – 9:00 pm..  It will be at a nice restaurant to be named later (either the Bistro Bis at the Kimpton Hotel George or somewhere near by).  We will have a maximum of seven places at the table (along with me, making eight).

For the fund-raising:  the event is $200 per plate, the money to be donated directly to the blog.    Each person will also pay for his or her own meal.

There will be no set agenda for the dinner.  It will be a chance to get to meet each other and talk about matters of mutual interest and importance, especially as they relate to the blog –anything connected, even remotely, with the New Testament and early Christianity.  The basic idea is that you will be able to pick my brain at will, and I may pick yours.  We did a similar event in December in Durham, and a good time was had by all.  Or at least so they all said!

For any of the table members who want an add-on, with additional brain-picking potential: for an additional donation of $200 you can start with drinks with me at 5:30.   I should be good and jolly by meal time.

And a final option:  if anyone wants to join me after dinner for a one-hour, one-on-one: it will go to the highest bidder.

This offer is open to blog members only (if you see this and don’t belong yet: just join now!), and admission to the table will be first come, first served.  So zap me a reply sooner rather than later to know if you’re interested in dinner; and if so, in drinks; and if so, in an after dinner tête-a-tête.  Please don’t respond here, but to me privately via email:  [email protected].
