I will have to admit, I never measure these events in success or not, because I really don’t read Dave Ramsey books. BUT, BUT, I do know we solved the Events Center parking problem, legalizing mary jane and why Denny Sanford wants to rule the world. Other then that, I drank some really good homemade wine, ate some good homemade salsa, met some new people and probably scared the living dogshit out of a local politician. Well, at least, dead dogshit, and chicken, rabbit and goat shit.

South DaCola Fest WILL occur this next Monday, March 25. 5:30 at the Touch of Europe. After a long hiatus from this event, I hope it will be the best one so far. Feel free to bring treats and eats, cash bar, and plenty of political talk. I am working on getting some local politicos to show up and make it more engaging. While we have some wild times here sometimes, it will be great meeting some of you in person, again. Enemies are welcome too

I am planning it for 5:30 at the Touch of Europe, Downtown Sioux Falls, 12th & Phillips at 5:30 PM. FREE PARKING after 5 PM downtown. We are normally closed that night, so no food, but I will have a cash bar of beer and wine and two-fers on Amber Bock taps and house wine.
Anybody is welcome to come and talk about politics, even though the conversation normally goes astray really fast.

Been thinking about this awhile.
It’s time ladies and gents.
South DaCola fest.
Basically, this is how it goes, if you like this blog, and like to talk about local politics, and like to have an adult beverage and laugh your ass off, you are welcome.
I am planning it for some Monday night in March. It will be downtown, of course, and I have secured a private location that can accomodate several people.
Guest Speaker? Winston?

Starting immediately, South DaCola will begin a new comment policy;
You will still be able to comment anonymously, BUT, you will not be able to comment without providing ME your real name and email address.
I will now have to moderate ALL comments, this is why your comments will not appear right away.
This will not affect most of you, since I already know 80% of my commenters.
For those of you that I DO NOT know that are currently commenting will have to provide that information or you will be blocked.
Thank You for understanding.

It used to be I was scoffed by many people, angry conspiracy theorist and all. But over the past year I have gotten nothing but positive feedback, donations and encouragement, and not just from people I know, but readers and commenters.
Several commenters have even came ‘out of the closet’ and have approached me in public and told me their screen names.
This is what I have wanted South DaCola to be, a platform for information you won’t get from the local media. A vent for citizens.
I have made incredible friends that I never would have imagined. People passionate about integrity and open government. People expecting top notch customer service from their elected officials. And honesty.
In fact I actually enjoy the criticism more then the compliments. It keeps me on my toes and makes me look in the mirror, much more then I want to.
Now for the compliments. I met a South DaCola reader about a month ago and she sang praises about my site. I recently ran into her again, and she said something that almost made me cry.
“What you do is so wonderful, never stop!”
She said some other things to, that made me blush a bit.
The best part was a comment she made to me that I have turned into a joke;
‘What’s the difference between a SD Democrat and a Minnesota Republican?’
Let’s lay down the facts, South DaCola is read by over 10,000 (individual) readers a day with up to 40,000 hits a day. It has traffic, and has advertising appeal.
The problem? I’m not a salesman. Sure I can sell a hamburger and a beer, but when it comes to something as touchy as politics, I couldn’t sell you a free toothpick.
So I am putting a challenge out there. You send me advertisers, I will give you a 50% commission. On top of that, I will do the design work and the leg work.
I have pretty slack terms, I will negotiate any advertiser’s rate and they don’t have to sign any contracts. You can advertise as long as you want. Don’t care. As long as you pay me via check, money-order or PayPal, we are good to go.
If you want to help me sell advertising for South DaCola, or are interested in advertising on one of Sioux Falls’ top read daily websites. Drop me a line, firstname.lastname@example.org

We will have another South DaCola Fest after the SF Next ‘Walmart-Like’ discussion with the Gargoyle Leader and KSFY at the Elmen Center (starts at 6:30). We need as many South DaCola foot soldiers there as possible so we can have a ‘REAL’ discussion about what is NEXT in Sioux Falls. I have a feeling we will make up about 1/2 the crowd.
We’ll meet at Tre Lounge after the event (33rd & Minnesota).

Okay, Hos and I were having a drink tonight and she decided that tomorrow night would be perfect for a South DaCola Fest (4?), at Black Oak Arkansas’s show, Phoenix Lounge, Harrisburg, SD.
So show up, and have some fun, and maybe some of my crazy contributors will show up.
I heard Sy is buying . . .
This picture has nothing to do with festivities, but I thought her boobies were nice.
