Owner Steve Widmyer of the Fort Ground Grill (River Avenue near North Idaho College in old Fortgrounds area) tells Huckleberries that Bent's BBQ sandwiches and all the side dishes'll be ready at 1 o'clock today (Saturday, Feb. 16) when the 2013 Blogfest kicks off. I have RSVPs from Christa, Christie, Herb, Dan Gookin, Sara Meyer and others for the annual event. Spokesman-Review Editor Gary Graham will be there, too. The purpose of blogfest is for you North Idaho bloggers, commenters and blurkers to get together to talk about the things we experience on this blog throughout the past year. Food and pop are free. You don't have to stay the full 3 hours to enjoy the event. But it helps. See you there this afternoon -- DFO.
