Help Welcome me back this Saturday from 5pm-7pm at The (smoke-free) Royale

May 15, 2008 Events/Meetings, Steve Patterson 6 Comments

As regular readers know, I was in three hospitals over the course of three months (February-April) following my stroke on February 1st. I received so many cards and emails of support it was wonderful. I know some of you came to see me while I was still in ICU at SLU and later while I was at St. Mary’s. Cards are great but nothing beats a face to face conversation. I think many others didn’t really know me other than as a reader and they didn’t feel comfortable showing up at the hospital.
When I knew when I’d be returning home some of my close friends wanted to throw a big party — at my place. I ruled that out quickly — I wanted something more casual and where everyone could just show up.

So this Saturday (5/17/08) I will be at The Royale at 3132 S. Kingshighway from 5pm-7pm. Weather permitting I will be on the back patio. Stop feel free to just stop by my table and say hello or even tell me how much you disagree with me. Get a drink at the bar and pull up a chair. I might even do special tricks like walking or moving my left arm!

The Gadfly is back!

  1. Good to have you back Steve!
    Sorry to say though, the wife and I will be out of town this weekend, along with many other of your scootin’ peeps to attend a club rally in KC. Have fun, and enjoy a plate of sweet potato chips for us!

    I’ll try to make it.

  3. Margie says:

    We’ll see you toward the late end Steve! So glad you’re out and about.

    The Royale burger with sweet potato chips is the best. I love the Royale. Welcome back officially.

  5. SIG says:

    That’s AWESOME. Except I saw this post today and totally MISSED IT! Darn darn darn darn. Glad that you’re BACK in action. Congratulations on a big achievement. Survival is supposed to come naturally, but you got a curve ball – to say the least.

    I’m hoping we can meet up anyway. Will email off this space.

    Wow, you’re still a very witty guy despite everything. Can’t make it tonight to your Welcome Back gathering but you know you are constantly in our thoughts and prayers. (See!? Collective intent, aka prayer, sometimes actually helps. Christ Church Cathedral/Episcopal says “Well done and welcome back. The world is still just as screwed-up as it was before your, um, hiatus.”) Love and Peace as always.
