2016 POTY. Andy & Julia Balinsky. Gary Hallock, Brian Oakley
Members of Punsters United Nearly Yearly (P.U.N.Y.) will hold a free reception and warm-up before the Pun-Off on Friday, May 12th from 7 to 9 pm at a place to be announced soon.
You need not be a PUNY member or Pun-Off contestant to attend. Everyone is welcome including family or friends.
We will have a reserved room with a reasonably priced al-a-cart menu so individuals can order and pay for what they want. There will be limited seating available in our dining area but standing room and/or overflow tables should be available.
We will not collect money in advance, but we do hope to have a reasonably accurate head count if people RSVP.
We will pass the bed pan for donations to the Brush Square Museums Foundation who covered the advance room charge. We will also have an auction of cool Austin restaurant and entertainment coupons. The camaraderie will be to diet for.
If you’ve attended one of these PUNY receptions in previous years, I’m sure you’ll understand the way it works and how entertaining it can be. Besides the riddles, pun-practice rounds, and first-timer advice, we will eventually reveal, roast, and toast our 2017 Punster of the Year (Also known as the P.O.T.Y. award!) This is always an un-fork edible experience so come prepared to take a jab at our honoree to see that he or she is properly done.
