The ZONE honors Dr. Hunter S. Thompson with a memorial tribute on Saturday, March 5th

Please join the Zone on Saturday, March 5th at noon Eastern time as we remember and celebrate the life of the late Dr. Hunter S. Thompson.

As many of you know, March 5th is the day on which Hunter’s close friends and family, including Johnny Depp, are having their private “memorial gathering” in Aspen, Colorado. We thought it only fitting that we have a memorial gathering on the Zone as well . . . a chance for us to share our feelings about Hunter and his work, and our memories of how he has touched our lives through his writing and his friendship with Johnny.

Tribute threads will be open for posting reminiscences, reflections, or farewell letters to Hunter. A thread will be open in Pic Parties for posting pictures of Hunter and Johnny. Those of you who are artistically gifted may want to create a collage or wallpaper to share, like Shadow’s beautiful tribute collage HERE. The ONBC will be posting some favorite quotations from Hunter’s works and inviting you to do the same.

So set out a tumbler of Chivas Regal or your beverage of choice, pull out that well-thumbed copy of FEAR AND LOATHING IN LAS VEGAS, and join us on Saturday to give Hunter one splendid sendoff. And while tears may flow at times, bring your sense of humor, too. A tribute to Hunter S. Thompson should be full of fun and camaraderie. He loved to laugh and wrote of even the most difficult subjects with humor. Our gathering Saturday will try to match the spirit of his writing: always heartfelt, frequently hilarious. See you there!
