The Corner

NR Visits the Granite State (Update)

Just dropping into The Corner to remind one and all that Jonah Goldberg, Rob Long, James Lileks, and other NR All-Stars will be in Manchester, New Hampshire, on Saturday, January 7, for an evening of ruminating, riffing, and debate-watching. All NRO denizens are invited, but urged to register now as seating is limited.

Joining G, L, & L will be Rich Lowry, Ramesh Ponnuru, Bob Costa, Kathryn Jean Lopez, Uncommon Knowledge host Peter Robinson, and political strategist Mike Murphy: They’ll be participating in a great program at the Radisson Hotel Manchester (700 Elm Street). The Ballroom doors open at 6:00 p.m., and the event should end at approximately 11:45 p.m. Here’s the program:

6:30 to 7:35 p.m. — Rich Lowry moderates a panel discussion, including Ramesh Ponnuru, Mike Murphy, and Bob Costa, on the upcoming NH primaries, and more.

7:45 to 8:50 p.m. — Goldberg, Long, & Lileks spend an hour-plus reflecting wisely and wittily on current events.

9:00 to 11:00 p.m. — Join us as we watch (on a big honkin’ screen) the GOP candidates’ debate being broadcast from nearby St. Anselm College.

11:05 to 11:45 p.m. — G, L, & L regroup for an encore performance of pithy observations on the just-watched debate.

Again, the event (plus food!) is free. But it’s limited (to the first 400 people). There is parking available, but that’s between you and the Radisson. And so are the drinks — we’ll have a bar setup, but we can’t buy everything, so you’ll have to handle your own brewskis.

To reserve a spot, simply e-mail nhevent@nationalreview.com and tell us the name(s) of those who will be joining us on January 7.

Members of the National Review editorial and operational teams are included under the umbrella “NR Staff.”
