This event will be a rescheduling of the previously planned loquacious fundraising event. It will also be a barbeque. And a potluck. And a cooking competition and an opportunity to grill your sausages in the company of other fine mefites.
In attendance will be the several cases of Blue Moon Ale that was generously donated by my beer distributor, as well as an ample supply of meat for the grill. For those interested in meat free grilling, there will be a separate grill allocated to veggies only.
What we want from you is for you to rock up with your best barbeque/picnic dish, be it brownies, salsa, tater salad, (plate of) baked beans, etc., and see how it stands up to the competition. They will be judged, and in addition to an awesome blue ribbon for first prize, you could go down in history as the very first winner ever of the NYC Metafilter Meetup Barbeque Potluck Throwdown.
We will also be raffling off the fantastic donations provided by generous mefites far and wide, to the benefit of loquacious, who is happily out of the hospital and on the mend. The Whelk will be appearing in thread shortly with more details about this.
The weekend of July 10 seems to work best, probably Sunday, but we're open to Saturday if it works better for people. This will be happening at my place (Lower East Side) on my roof terrace. Late afternoon/early evening is best to avoid the hottest hours.
Who's in and name your dish
