Guest Posts

Drink Up! Over the years TGTBTU has hosted many Guest Author Events.  This page is designed to give readers a look back at all of our hard work (and damn, is all this a lotta work!).  We’ve done our best to list all of the posts here, but it’s extremely possible we’ve “lost” a few along the way.  Also, be advised that some of the older posts are seriously wonky, due in large part to our Blogger to WordPress migration.  We’ve been cleaning up a lot of these older posts, but it’s been slow going.  Be patient with us.  We are a pond, but it’s a small pond.  In the meantime, enjoy!
