Donnie and Joey posted a few stories on their Instagram accounts about BlockCon 2023:
Prior to the announcement, Donnie posted that it'll be a whole year of celebrating and BlockCon is only "step 1".
When someone asked what's next, he replied with "Never know - but you know we will make it an adventure!"
Joey shared this cute graphic for the BlockCon
But more importantly, he posted that he might try to do a solo show during BlockCon!
Adam Ray was interviewing Impractical Jokers founding member Joe Gatto. Joe Gatto mentioned he did "Hangin' Tough" for a talent show when he was a kid and of course played New Kid with he shares a name with. So Adam had Joey Mac call in and join the conversation for a bit! Joey's part starts at approximately 37 minutes. Click here to listen!

Donnie received some more praise from people he worked with on Blue Bloods! This one was from Quincy Giles, who was on last week's episode:
I know Jonathan posted the question of whether or not to delete his Twitter a few weeks ago, so this isn't a real big surprise. I just hope he keeps his Instagram!
I keep things in mind for these posts and sometimes I'll save some screen caps some possible things to share. I had initially decided not to use these in last Tuesday's post, but since it appears these were his final tweets, I'll post them now:

I've been getting a lot of questions about when to renew your Block Nation membership. If it's been a year since you joined, it's likely you got an email today letting you know your membership has expired!
The Block Nation membership perks include:
- First access to tickets to headline shows and special events
- An exclusive membership gift!
People.com posted an article about Joey's Carnegie Hall performance! They asked him about his plans for this year. Here's a quote:
As for what's next, McIntyre says his Carnegie performance felt "like a kickoff" for his plans to make his 50th year extra special.
"I've been saying to friends that I want to do 50 shows this year, so 50 for 50," says the star, although he admits that plans have not been finalized. "I'm just doing what I love to do, and taking it one day at a time but I think it'll all come together soon."
Could one of the those 50 shows be in Boston? Joey shared a photo of a chair by the Charles River in Boston over the weekend with the caption "future namaste":
Joey shared a photo of him with Peloton instructor, Robyn:
He posted this selfie last night:
Shoshana Bean made a heartfelt post about Joey and she included a clip of them rehearsing. Click here to view!
My sweet Joe Mac…you belong to the masses. But your superpower is making each of us feel so seen and so cared for that we are sure you belong solely to us alone. You have always held me with a strength and sensitivity that made me feel more safe and more courageous than I would have been had you not been at my side. Even under the scariest and most vulnerable of circumstances. I am so grateful for, inspired by and proud of you! Thank you for having me be even the tiniest part of such a massive moment. To many, many more chances to goof around and say yes, my friend. #joeshanaforever xo
And speaking of posts about working with one of the guys, Jessica Pimentel, who guest starred in last week's episode of Blue Bloods, posted about working with Donnie:
If you guessed I was talking to Danny Reagan in my previous post, YOU WERE CORRECT!
Here I am with the gracious and awesome forever heartthrob @donniewahlberg
Who was an absolute joy to work with.
I am seriously, humbly and thankfully at a loss for words today from all the outpouring of love and support from family, friends and fans of @bluebloods_cbs .
What an amazing experience!
What should we order at Manducatis for dinner?

Also, Erin is offered an endorsement of her run for D.A. by an influential Harlem pastor in exchange for a professional favor; Gormley comes to Frank with a request regarding a disabled officer who has a connection to Danny; and Jamie tries to make amends with a man he regrets putting away as a young officer.
Here are some preview clips:
