Happy Independence Day (and a belated Happy Canada Day to my friends north of the border).

It’s hard to believe that BlogHer 2010 is nearly here. But before we convene in New York, we have the Boston Area BBQ on July 17th.

Date: Saturday July 17th
Time: 1-5 pm
Where: 171 White Pond Rd. Hudson MA (my house)

You don’t have to be a member of the BlogHer community to come — just someone  (male or female) who wants to meet fellow Boston-area bloggers in a family-friendly environment. Kids, friends, spouses, partners are all welcome.

Like last year, we have sponsors covering the burger/dog and dessert portions of the day, so all you have to bring is a side dish/salad and your chosen beverages. A big thank you to food sponsors Peapod, Friendly’s and Dancing Deer for their support.

And we have door prizes too. Au Bon Pain, Stride Rite and Kaspersky Lab have stepped up with prizes. If you have anything in your swag or regifting closet that you’d like to contribute, please do. I’ll be contributing a Mominatrix t-shirt, some music CDs that a promoter continues to send me even though I no longer write for the blues blog and a few photo printer cases from HP that are the perfect size for a travel toy bag or spare camera case. Last year, all the kids walked away with a little gift and were so excited to win something.

We wouldn’t be able to pull this together with so much sponsor support without the help of our friends at PR agencies 360 Public Relations and The Castle Group, so a big thank you to them as well.

To RSVP, leave a comment here or on the previous announcement on BlogHer. Please let me know the number of adults and children, and the side dish/salad you are thinking of bringing. This isn’t a binding commitment – if something comes up and you can’t make it on the day, it’s perfectly okay. Knowing how many people just helps us in the food planning for the hamburgers, hot dogs and dessert. We will have a vegetarian option.

Hope you can come!
