Blognic Philly II UNDERWAY!

We have gathered as announced at the Irish Pub on Walnut near Rittenhouse Square. We came a bit early and found blognicers here already. We are on the upper level in the corner, rather than the lower front section (like last time). UPDATE: 7 including me so far. Claire says hi to the West Coast.

UPDATE: 10 people so far! An old classmate of my friend Fr Basden in Clapham Park Southwark!

UPDATE: At least 15!

    Nunc est bibendum….

    My best to Philly and congratulations to the gentleman sporting the noble name and colors of the blessed land of Dante, Augustus and St. Pius V (and many others)!

  2. Norah says:

    I’d be there if only someone would pay my fare from Australia to the USA! lol

  3. pablo says:

    It is hard to argue against racial profiling after seeing the pictures of the blognics.

    Clearly a bunch of subversives….


  4. Tim Ferguson says:

    every time there’s a WDTPRS blognic, twenty liturgical dancers feel a chill run up their spine.

  5. Sedgwick says:

    Tim F., you’re hilarious. Forgive my ignorance though – what does one do at a blognic?

  6. Dr. Eric says:

    I would love to see a St. Louis blognic. :-)

  7. seanl says:

    Coming to Atlanta anytime Father?

  8. Rachel says:

    Father, you need to hand off your camera to someone else so we can see you in there. Also, stop dissing Southern California and have a blognic here! :)

  9. mother undercover says:

    CLAIRE!!!! What a surprise to see you here! You made my day. I’ll look forward to a blognic report via your mother.

  10. pablo says:

    Dear Mr.Sedgwick,

    Didn’t my comment even get a little mini-snicker from you?

    I guess Southwest humor doesn’t play well in the cold climates.

    God be with you.

    I wanted to make the ten hour drive to the blognic, but thought I should stay home and root for the Canadian men’s hockey team. Apparently, though, my watching has made Team Canada’s goaltender really nervous, as he is letting everything in… So I have stopped watching – as of the end of the second period – so that maybe he’ll gain some composure.

    I would attend a blessed blognic in So. Cal…we need one

  13. Thanks again for gathering today, Father. Great to see you again. Clare was very excited, too :)

  15. Obumbrabit says:

    Nice to see that my sister Clare made it to such a storied event as a Fr. Z blognic. I hope it was fun for all.

  16. Maltese says:

    Looks like fun; anyone drinking hard cider? Btw.: they’ve outlawed smoking in bars in California, so now there are smoke-easies. I think it’s reprehensible when someone goes into a bar and orders a coke, because pretty soon this will get noticed and they’ll decide to outlaw smoking AND drinking in bars!

  17. Norah says:

    Of course smoking in bars had to be banned. What bar owner wants to get sued for contributing to the fact that an employee or non smoking customer contracted cancer from passive smoking?

  18. Sedgwick says:


    Sorry dude, didn’t mean to ignore your wit!

  19. Rob Cartusciello says:

    It was a pleasure to finally meet you in person, Fr. Z.

    Mille grazie for blessing my St. Benedict medals. They will be treasured.

    Thank you, too, for your concern about the family matter we discussed. Your concern and sincerity were greatly appreciated.

    Oremus pro invicem.
