Happy Memorial Day and Happy Hour/Game Night Announcement!

Happy Memorial Day people. May your Memorial Day be filled with as much BBQ, fish, and outdoor fun as your little heart can handle.

As is VSB custom, we tend to take off the holidays around here and today is no different, however, I wanted to drop off this little nugget…

Everybody knows it is #geminiseason. Yes, that wondrous time where all that is right with the world gets a little bit righter. As is such, the current week that we are in is home to the day that the good Lord Himself decided to bestow upon the world one Panama Jackson. Yes, it’s true. Liz, our pre-eminent on all things, is also a Gemini. Put your lighters up.

As is such, this week on Thursday, in Washington, DC, I shall be playing host to a Happy Hour/Game Night at Tap & Parlour. It’s the same location as the #threedeez party back in April. So from 530pm until we leave (actually more like 6pm for me) come hang out and get libatious with Panama and many of his homeboys. As luck would have it, the game will also be shown on all of the television screens on this evening (it’s Game 2 of the NBA Finals between the Heat of Miami and the Mavericks of Dallas) and it’s also Game Night at Tap & Parlour, which means that random boardgames and card games etc are available for people to play and converse over. I’m partial to spades myself and rarely leave home without a deck of cards.

All that to say, if you’re in DC and are looking for something to do on Thursday, come on out to Tap & Parlour and help me celebrate my birthday.

Tap & Parlour is located at 2001 11th Street, NW (corner of 11th and U)

530-the game ends

Game Night

Is it short notice? Sure. That’s by design. But come Thursday night, come kick it with ya boy, if ya ‘ont 2.

We’ll be sending out an email to the VSB VIP-DC list and I’m gonna try to create a little thing so that we can get some kind of quick idea on numbers, but funtimes are funtimes and ain’t no funner time than #geminiseason on a Thursday with Panama Jackson. Tru dat and bet that up.

Panama Jackson

Panama Jackson is pretty fly (and gorgeous) for a light guy. He used to ship his frito to Tito in the District, but shipping prices increased so he moved there to save money. He refuses to eat cocaine chicken. When he's not saving humanity with his words or making music with his mouth, you can find him at your mama's mama's house drinking her fine liquors. Most importantly, he believes the children are our future. You can hit him on his hitter at

  • First of all… libatious? Good. WORD.

    Second of all… the party sounds great, if only I didn’t have to take a horse and 3 mules through the cornfields of IL to get to decent transportation, but ahh… such is life. Hoping you, Liz, and the other VSPeeps have the time of your life (No Green Day/HS memorial slideshows).

    Third of all… Mr. Trois, you carry playing cards with you at all times? Might you be a card shark?

    Is this going to be one of those days when the commentors take over without a real post? First of all, yawl ain’t real Geminis because the new dates are June 21st til July 2nd. You all are now astrological Man-cows. And we all know bulls can’t take the HEAT. 2ndly, its either Scorpio season or not Scorpio season, no other points of reference need be recognized. You know who else was Gemini? Dominique Strauss-Kahn.

    And this guy:

    Ole split personality having, BOGO loving, Neapolitan in the membrane having sign.
    Scorpius out…
