Chip Lewis asked me to let all those planning to attend that tonight is NOT a fundraising event for any candidate. Additionally, all food, drinks and valet parking are complimentary, courtesy of our hosts.
In case you haven't gotten the e-mail or the Facebook invitation, tomorrow night is the Harris County District Attorney's Reunion at Cyclone Anaya's located at 1710 Durham, Houston, TX 77007 (***PLEASE NOTE: This is the Cyclone Anaya on Durham, NOT the one at Midtown).
The event is hosted by Chip Lewis, Bert Graham, and Paul Doyle and runs between 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. And yes, Mike Anderson will be there. He is a former prosecutor, as you may have heard.
It has been a while since there has been a prosecutors' reunion, and the last one was an absolute blast. So many legends of the Criminal Law world were in attendance. It really is an incredible opportunity to sit back and hear stories from past generations of prosecutors.
All current and former prosecutors are invited to attend, although it is understandable if prosecutors who currently get their paychecks signed by She Who Must Not Be Named are a little gun shy about attending. Unfortunately, their concerns about being seen at such an event are not baseless.
As I mentioned in the last post, there was a fundraiser tonight for David Hilburn at Junction. There were a lot of former prosecutors there to cheer on an old friend. Devon and Mike Anderson were in attendance for Dave. (He used to intern for Devon.)
Also inexplicably in attendance was David Benzion, who showed up and then left within five minutes. I'm not really sure why he was there. He seemed a bit surprised to see me when I saw him in the parking lot.
The moral of the story is simple, unfortunately. If you are out at an event and you are worried that Lykos might learn you were there . . .
You should be. Somebody is keeping tabs.
