Wincing Devil Flash Mob Chantey Sing in DC! (7) 'Impromptu' Chantey Sing in DC (Update) 28 Jul 08

(On advice of counsel, I'm not using the term "Mob" in any sense)

In answering some questions that have arisen:
  • First, yes, this is aimed at DC Downtowners.  ALL ARE WELCOME
  • A couple of us are getting together for a pre-sing supper (Sorry Jacq!) at Elephant & Castle, 12th & PA at 6PM.  Join us if you can, we have a GREAT meal, then saunter towards the Capitol.  Who know, we may sing as we saunter.
  • At the Navy Memorial, in front of the Lone Sailor Statue, singing will commence at 3 bells of the 2nd dog watch (7:30pm for you civilians, 1930 for sojers & smurfs, for Marines, Mickey's little hand is on the 7, his big hand is on the 6!)
  • This will be a mini sing, just a proof of concept. 
  • There are NO plans at this point to add yet another chantey sing to a crowded schedule
  • I plan to linger downtown afterwards, to make a general nuisance of myself, albeit carefully staying within the lawful confines of 
    • DC ST § 22-1307 (Unlawful Assembly) &
    • DC ST § 22-1321 (Disorderly Conduct)

If you can't make it, mayhap you can go see Calico Jack, appearing at the Annapolis Maritime Museum in "EEESPAWT"  I have a feeling that Janie and Paulie will sing some sea songs (ya think?).
