bring on the hype: wren’s nest fest 2007


Written on May 30, 2007 at 5:40 pm, by carson

Friday, June 8th has officially made the 10-day weather forecast! That’s how we know the big day is almost here.

Weather for Wren's Nest Fest 2007

Even if it is a balmy 89 degrees next Friday, the 10% figure is low enough to keep Lain sleeping like a baby for the next 9 nights. My fingers will dutifully remain crossed all week. On Thursday, I’ll ask Marshall how his telltale joints are feeling. And that will be the last word on the weather.

In the meantime, allow me to BRING ON THE HYPE!

According to my intuition, Lain’s undying (and largely unfounded) faith in my event planning skills, Jeri’s infallible foresight, and Star’s optimism, I can say with confidence that this June 8th is going to bear witness to the best Wren’s Nest Fest on record.

[EDIT: Not only are we going to have hundreds of little kids ravaging our food table and making bunny ears out of Burger King hats, but we have a birthday to celebrate! Wren's Nest Superfan David Sokol (WNSDS) will be turning 24 on this very special, multi-purpose day. We'll be sporting those bunny ears for you, Dave!]

In addition, WNF flyers are flying Br’er Rabbit all over town. Hundreds of letters have been mailed. Mama Shakespeare’s kitchen is piled to the rafters with cupcakes and icing. Ponies are being groomed and bridled somewhere in rural Georgia. The bunnies are… being born (specifically for this occasion). We’ve got postings on Atlanta Buzz, About.com and Atlanta INtown!

And if you were even debating whether or not to attend: here’s a sneak preview of our LIMITED EDITION Wren’s Nest Fest 2007 t-shirt, going to print as you read this!

We’ll have them in youth and adult sizes, plentiful and affordable. Get ‘em while they’re hot (and it’s hot) on June 8th! Every kid, parent and senior in Atlanta will be sporting one come Saturday, June 9th. In fact, I predict their popularity will go so far as to exceed the popularity of gaucho pants.

“Is that even possible?” says Lloyd Farklenkuh.

“Entirely, especially if they’re worn together!” replies WNIC.

    Oh, and I heard there is an afterparty to WNF07…given that it is an auspicious date.

  2. carson says:

    Well, my bubble is burst. And Lain is breaking into a cold sweat.

    But not to worry! Water balloons and ponies are extra fun when it’s raining.

    Indeed, Wren’s Nest Fest 2007 coincides with another, equally if not more important (gasp!) event on our calendar: the 24th birthday of one highly renowned and upstanding Atlanta resident.

    He is so upstanding, in fact, that the event of his birthday begs an edit to the aforepublished blog. Please note the change.

  3. DJ Cayenne says:

    I plan to come out rain or shine… and its my birthday as well (though well past 24)

  4. Jodi says:

    great shirts Carson! And don’t worry, it won’t rain. According to “the secret” you have to stay positive and believe “It will be sunny” which is different from thinking “Please don’t rain.”

    It will be sunny! It will be sunny! I believe! I believe!

    See you there, DJ Cayenne, and thanks for the link. In honor of your birthday we will be having sooooo many cupcakes. And maybe a round or two of bingo on the front porch.

    Jodi, you’re exactly right. While I haven’t read the Secret, nor have I seen it nor do I really know what it is, I believe in its message 100% when it comes to Wren’s Nest Fest.

  6. Catherine says:

    Ponies, cupcakes, bingo and Lauren’s awesome t-shirt design…I have no doubt that this is going to be the best Wren’s Nest Fest ever!

  7. Kitty says:
