Memorial Day Cook Out!

UPDATED (see below): 

For those of us who are not braving the roads and airports for a 3-day getaway, we will be hosting a cookout.

We ask that everyone brings a dish to share. We will provide the hot dogs and the utensils.

Since this event is going to be at the park, feel free to bring kids or dogs to join in on the fun.

Now, let's all cross our fingers for great weather!

----

Update: The park entrance is located at Crogan Street and Scenic Highway (my GPS identified the location about 1/2 mile up the road, so be aware). Once you enter the park, follow the signs to the Playground/Rental Pavilions. We do not have a Pavilion rented, but there are 7 or 8 public grills around the Pavilions that we will hopefully be able to use. They are first come, first serve and there is no guarantee we will have access. 

SO...if anyone has a portable grill, feel free to bring it along. Also, feel free to bring along any picnic/party games you would like. 

Everyone is responsible for bringing their own drinks and a dish to share. Keep in mind, this is a Gwinnett County Park and alcoholic beverages are not allowed. If you choose to disobey that policy, you are doing it at your own risk. 

Finally, feel free to invite friends. The more people we have joining us, the merrier. 

When you arrive, please call/text me at[masked] to find the group.

    Are children welcome? Anything I need to bring?

    2 · May 25, 2014

    • Larisa E.

      Yes, children are welcome! We are hoping to set up shop next to the playground, so there will also be plenty for them to do. And, I will send out a list shortly of what we already have covered and see if you can bring something else not already on the list.

      May 25, 2014

  • Marclyn Sims B.

    Is anyone bringing charcoal?

    1 · May 24, 2014

    • Stephen B.

      We don't have any new charcoal either.

      May 25, 2014

    • Larisa E.

      I picked some instant light charcoal today...just in case.

      1 · May 25, 2014

  • Kris H.

    I'm currently out of the country, but wish I could make it! Have fun guys!

    1 · May 25, 2014

  • Sloan L.

    I'll probably bring by some pizza. I know there are gazebos at the park, is that our contingency if the weather doesn't cooperate?

    1 · May 24, 2014

    • Larisa E.

      Sloan, there are Pavilions at the park, but there is a fee to rent them - so I didn't go that route. One of them is not rented during the time we will be there, but it is first come, first serve. So, hopefully, in case it starts to rain, we will either get it OR the people who do get it will be willing to share. So far, the forecast calls for isolated showers, which means that if it does rain, it should not last too long. Fingers crossed!

      May 25, 2014

  • Marclyn Sims B.

    We can bring 2lbs of ground beef--enough for about 8 burgers-- if someone else wants to bring some too. Can someone bring hamburger buns?

    1 · May 24, 2014

    • Larisa E.

      I have invited my neighbors who will be bringing some more hamburgers and some buns.

      1 · May 25, 2014

  • Pam & J.

    We'll bring fresh BBQ'd wings and homemade potato salad. We'll also bring a ladder toss game and some playing cards.

    1 · May 24, 2014

    • Larisa E.

      Sounds delicious and thank you for bringing games!

    I will be attending but will be a little late thanks to a work event, but I can bring a couple packs of hot dogs if that works. Or buns.

    1 · May 24, 2014

    • Larisa E.

      Brandon, I have Vienna Beef hot dogs and sesame seed buns. I will put together a list and email out tomorrow of what everyone is bringing and offer some suggestions of what's missing. If you could pick something up off that list, great! If not, don't worry about it.

    I'll bring chips. Probably best that people bring there own meat? I'm guessing there is a grill we can use there?

    1 · May 21, 2014

    • Larisa E.

      Neil, there are grills at the park and I will go take a look at them this weekend. And, in terms of meat, I think it would be great if one person or two people commit to bringing hamburger meat and if anyone wants anything else to bring their own.

    Could everyone maybe list what item(s) --food or not-- that you are planning to bring? That way we have a good assortment.

    May 20, 2014

    1 · May 19, 2014

    • Larisa E.

      No problem, Pam! Actually, I am adding to the event description that this is a kid-friendly event for those with kids.

      May 19, 2014
