HELLO DC!

You've seen London, you've seen France, now come to the DC Hard Rock Cafe and see Freddie Mercury's pants!

Please join us at the Hard Rock Cafe for the Washington, DC Tailgate Party/Meetup for some fun and to get sufficiently oiled up before the DC gig. I warned the manager that we're coming and they're expecting us. We'll be in the bar at the Hard Rock before the gig, starting at 4:00 pm (unless you want to start earlier--let me know!)

RE: Freddie's pants (the red leather/leatherish ones,) are part of the DC Hard Rock's collection, and are in a large display case in the dining room, which is up the main stairs and to the left. Bring the Instamatic or the Polaroid and snap a pic of yourself having a brush with greatness!

Please post here if you're coming, AND . . . if you want, what you'll be wearing.

Thorsten and friends from Germany: Hope to see you!

Steve: My Fellow Commissioner of Tailgating . . . Another gig, another party . . . ;)

Luis: Are you bringing the baby?

Hi. I'll be there with my girlfriend. She loves Queen as much as I do and we met because of Freddie Mercury. I hope to meet some of you Queenzoners there.

Me? It depends on which disguise I'm wearing so, I could tell you, but then I'd have to kill you! ;) When you get there, just ask the host/hostess or the bartender where the people for the Queen meetup are. They'll point you in our direction. My name's Cindy.

My wife and I will be there. New to the site but been a Queen fan for over 30 years! Drove my family crazy with Night at the Opera, suffered the barbs of my Quiet Riot friends and Survived Hot Spaces! :) Thanks to Crazy Little Thing for cluing me in on this!

Hi Cindy,
I would like to be there, but I don't know if I will make the party in time. I probablly wont get there before 7-7:30. I'm driving in from Philly & won't be leaving work til 3 or so. I left you a couple of voice mails on your cell. Give me a call. If it's too late I'll just have a few beers at my car in the parking garage.

BTW- Is the metro right down the street from HRC, and do you know if metro will still be open after the show?? It'd be great if we didnt have to drive all the way.... I think I might wear my 80s suede fringe jacket! Cool? Does that sound 'Appropo'?? HaHa :) And a pirate eye patch too (long story)! ps- john is freakin out of his mind for this! Thx for the early heads-up on the tix for his dream band of all time!! I OWE YA!!

Well, John wasn't SUPPOSED to tell you I forgot your name! ;) Wait, I knew your name, it's "Brownie's Mom"! No prob with 5:30-ish. I don't know about the Metro being open. My guess is that it will be. It'll be great to have you guys there.

You know, of course, that while we are at the gig, Ridley and Brownie are going to throw a huge party for the neighborhood dogs over on the tennis court. Van Halen and Metallica will be kicking things off, then Aerosmith is going to play. This is what our dogs and cats do when we are all at work during the day. I bet you wondered about all those strange charges on your credit cards for beer and dog treats.
