A gathering for Owl Meat Gravy

August 18, 2011|By Richard Gorelick | The Baltimore Sun

Friends and fans of Owl Meat Gravy will gather in Little Italy on Sunday, Aug. 21 in the lounge at Chipparelli's for a  celebration of his life and writing. The informal event will begin at 7:30 p.m. and all are welcome to attend.

Bob Swank, best known for his masterful writing on electronic media under the name Owl Meat Gravy died in his Little Italy home late last week. Swank wrote, post, tweeted and updated regularly from his perch at Chipparelli's.

"We want everyone from all facets of his life to attend," said Carson Jacokes, a bartender at Chipparelli's who helped plan Sunday evening's gathering. Jacokes said that there will be no formal program, but "If anyone wants to make a toast, they're more than welcome. People in this neighborhood aren't known for being quiet."

Some tributes to Bobby Swagger:

"Java Zombies and the Baltimore Farmers Market" -- a wonderfully tart rant OMG posted on The Owl Meat Apocrapha that originally appeared on Dining@Large.

Evan Serpick posted this nice tribute on Baltimore Magazine's Chatter blog.

That reminds me that Baltimore Magazine's Best of Baltimore party is tonight, Aug. 18, at the Hippodrome. OMG won't be there to collect his award for best Twitter feed.
