I’ve never asked you for anything before….

…but I’m asking you now.  My ass turns 40 in a few weeks, and my wife is throwing me an enormous bash to celebrate.  (In case you received a previous e-mail from her, due to operation security problems, this is no longer a surprise party.  Heh heh)

The party will be the evening of Saturday, May 12, 2007, in our new home in San Francisco, CA.  The theme will be Casino Royale.  We’re going to run a small play-money casino at the party.  There will be serious quantities of gambling, food, and drink available.  Start studying your craps, blackjack, and roulette.   It’s considered dressy, but if you’ve spent any time at Burning Man, think more playa formal. 

If you’re coming from out of town:

  1. go priceline yourself a ticket,
  2. Let me know immediately, so I can find you a place to stay, if you need it.

If I haven’t seen you in a while, give me the gift of re-acquainting with you at my birthday.  I don’t want more stuff, just bring me your smiling face.  I want to see you having a raucously good time.
