Welcome Home Party Details

Well, Jack has completed his last step. And by that I mean the last step of his long walk home. He is still working on Step 2 of the 12-Step program he started years ago. So come on, get up and move, get on your groove, and join in a celebration for Jack completing his long walk home.

The party will take Place at the Pony Keg Grill & Bar in Kent, WA on Saturday, September 11th from 4:30 pm to 7:00 pm. Minors are welcome but must exit by 9:00 PM. Look at this map link for the Pony Keg location.

See if Jack has any other clothes than his walking duds. Is putting his reflective vest on such a habit that he won’t be able to not wear it? Hear some behind-the-walk stories that never made it to the blog. Is he really 7 feet tall? See what he looks like without a ball cap. Maybe he will have a ceremonial burning of a walk companion like a pair of worn out shoes.

The Montana Grizzlies will be on the TV at 6:00 and karaoke starts at 9:00 if you want to stay longer and howl at the moon. Maybe the real good stories will start to come out about then.

So please, come show Jack some love and maybe he can put faces to what have now only been names. And I know he would be extremely happy to see all his old Seattlite friends.
