It’s the Blathering’s TENTH anniversary this year. We can hardly believe it ourselves. Every year, the hardest part is the itinerary (the easiest part is sipping cocktails by the pool), so we always appreciate your patience. Just like every year, some of the details come together very last-minute. We like to think it’s a nice lesson in “can we pull this off while also having a panic attack?”. Every year, we do! Even that one year. You know the one I’m talking about.

Here’s what we’ve got so far. More to come!

*all bolded activities are part of your registration fee

Thursday night, 9pm
Welcome drinks at a hotel bar. Our hotel has a few (yay!), so we’ll decide upon arrival which one is best for accommodating us.

Wednesday, 6pm
A few of us already in town plan to have dinner at Rooster & the Pig. Please let us know if you’d like to join!

Friday, 1pm
Ice cream at Ice Cream Shoppe

Friday, 4pm
Picnic dinner at Ruth Hardy Park. We’ve submitted a permit to have the space from 4-7pm, for a casual, catered dinner, with wine and beer. We hope this will help us get to socialize with everyone, not just those seated near you.

Saturday, 1pm
A pre-fixe brunch at Kaiser Grill. Food is provided. Any drinks will be individually paid for separately.

Saturday, 4pm
Drinks by the Hotel Riviera pool. One drink will be provided by the Blathering.

Sunday, 10am
Pastries and coffee will be in Jennie & Elizabeth’s room!

Organizers’ note: If there’s anything you’d like to plan separately, please feel free to! We love seeing unofficial activities led by others pop up. Use Facebook to advertise your ideas or to organize your group within the group. And if you have any questions, we ask that you email them to (much easier for us to address over email than via social media)!
