This is just a note to say that I will be at the Draught House tonight, June 5th around 6:00ish, to have some drinks and reflect on our good friend, Walt Powell. If anyone wants to join me, drink, and share some stories, that’s where I’ll be. I’ll likely bring something sour to honor his memory.

Please spread the word on Facebook, Twitter, etc.

Pinned it to the top so everyone can see it easier. I’ll be toasting our munchkin mascot myself at home. Don’t think I could make it to Austin quite in time.

I can’t get away. I wanted to. Will there be a more formal RB wake? ’Cause I wanna be there, beers in hand.

I would imagine that the funeral will be here in Dallas. Whether or not its open to the public, I don’t know yet. His family might be a little overwhelmed by the FB response.
If it is public, I expect a very nice wake, probably only RB folks since even I never met his folks. I can’t have it at my place, but as soon as details of the funeral become available, I will move heaven and earth to find someplace for us to gather.
No need for whales, just some Orval and some memories.
