Wine, Cheese and honesty- Saturday night

Starting at 7pm. 23 February 08.

I’ve been informed that Pam and Juan have decided to throw a house party/fundraiser at Pam’s. Donations not required- but gladly accepted. If you aren’t bringing a check made out to Elect Esrati- bring your own beverages :-)

For those of you who’ve never met me- or want to put me on the hot-seat, this is your chance.

Location: 1736 Sherwood Forest Miamisburg OH 45342

We may have some door prizes, and a few other fun things, possibly an auction for some cool art too. If you’d like to donate stuff to raise funds- let us know. All the money donated will go directly to running the new TV ad.

We’ll also have bumper stickers and buttons with the “Honest. To a fault” slogan available, and have postcards for you to distribute to your friends and neighbors.

If you enjoyed this post, make sure you subscribe to my RSS feed! If you wish to support this blog and independent journalism in Dayton, consider donating. All of the effort that goes into writing posts and creating videos comes directly out of my pocket, so any amount helps!

Is this place in fairy tale land or what? All the roads named after Anglo-Saxon mythology. The meeting of a band of merry-men. Oh the suburbs ;)

I didn’t name the streets. And, it’s part of the district. Hope you can make it.


Ha! We were hoping to have a Robin Hood Theme Night: robbing from the rich and giving to the poor, so bring your checkbook. And if you wear tights, you’ll get an instant doorprize.

BTW: I used to live in the Snow White Subdivision, but I had to move. I couldn’t hear myself think with all those pesky dwarves constantly whistling while they worked.



Pam, You are hilarious! I used to live on Merry John Dr. in the same Hood and think a Robin Hood theme night would be a lot of fun(especially if it nets us enough money to get David on TV). I think Shannon might change his mind about coming though, since I told him I know I have a pair of tights to fit him. Look forward to seeing YOU Saturday, we saw enough of David today!

Bad news- Bad Juan broke his leg while carrying wine in the parking lot- and is going to have to have surgery. No word yet on if the wine broke.
So- Juan, we’ll raise a glass to you-
campaign finance reports were due today- see the post
I’m proud to say I have more donors than Jane- and no one that gave the max.
I’m not going to buy my way in- if I can’t win on the strength of my ideas and character- why do it?


From what I’ve heard, that’s not quite how it happened, but it makes a great story—taking one for the team. :-)

Anyway, the jury is still out on Juan. Don’t count him out just yet.
I hope he finds a way to hobble over here so we can put a bumper sticker on his cast.

Get well soon, Juan!


Yeah, David – not EXACTLY the way it happened. Actually, I slipped AFTER drinking the wine! Well, that’s NOT what happened either. The REAL story is sooooo lame I won’t even bother typing it.

I’m going to do my damndest to get there. Especially since it’s turning into a theme party. And…I look GREAT in tights. Plus, there’s no way a conservative like me wants to pass on an opportunity to spend an evening with a house full of liberals! ;)


We’re still on for tonight, regardless of the weather.
But I do seem to live atop Montgomery County’s Mt. Everest.
The hills in my neighborhood are steep and slippery from the freezing rain we got. Coming home last evening, I had to try 3 streets before I found one that wasn’t too icy for me to make it up the hill.

If you don’t have front wheel or 4 wheel drive and you have trouble with Heincke, here’s what my sherpa recommends:

Take South Alex to South Elm.
From South Elm turn Left onto Sherwood Forest.
1736 Sherwood Forest is maybe 1/4 to 1/2 mile from South Elm, on your left.
I’ll have some Esrati signs in the yard to make it obvious.

Maybe it won’t even be an issue by tonight, but I wanted to post this just in case.
