DC UL Pot-luck and BBQ

My new Weber charcoal grill arrived in March!

I propose a DC UL get together to share past trip adventures, ideas, plans and for newbies to get to know the group without the pressure to walk for 20+ miles.

It will take place at my group house on Tuesday April, 16th. All weekends are already planned with trips for the coming months and Tuesday is the only day during the week where I have time to prep for stuff like that.

Bring your own booze and meat. Veggies are not allowed on my grill. Just kidding. No, seriously ;) Since it's a pot-luck, let us know in the comments section what you intend to bring. There's a liquor store and a few convenience stores around the corner. Giant and Harris Teeter 10-15min away.

I will email my address to participants once we get closer to the date. It's accessible via Green/Yellow line metro station Columbia Heights, H2-4, S buses and the 42/43 bus. Parking is limited.

Let me know if you have any questions.

    Thanks to Holger and all for a festive occasion. Good thing I brought brownies as chocolate desserts were in short supply. :-p

    Thanks Holger. It was nice to meet you and some other members. The late night tenderloin was a nice finishing touch. Classy.

    Almost seems a shame not to bring the venison curry along on any backpacking trip! I had a great time seeing you all again! I'm really looking forward to the Western Rim trip.

      I'm practicing dehydrating food. On my last trip my roommate and I ate rice with chicken/eggplant thai green curry on the hill :)

    Dang, you DC UL folk are a lot of fun! Thanks Holger for hosting, and everyone else for attending and being such great company. On a side, I was impressed by the number of guys doing 10 or more chin-ups even after several beers and lots of good food! DC UL ladies (or guys) take note!

    Okay, bringing a chocolate cake and ingredients to throw together some guacamole there, if I can avail myself of a cutting board and knife.

    April 16, 2013

    • Holger

      That guacamole would have to pass the test with my Colombian roommate Laura :) But I will provide a board and knife for a start.

      April 16, 2013

    • Joffrey P.

      It'll be a Mexican style guacamole, so hopefully she doesn't have anything against that...

  • Shelby P.

    I will make a cheese and cracker plate (one vegan cheese!) and bring some tortilla chips and salsa. Looking forward to it!!! :)

    Anyone coming from Alexandria area and want to carpool?

      Again, parking might be limited and before 8pm only with residential permit. But if they get you before 8 you have a ticket.

      April 15, 2013

    • Lisa Briggs N.

      I was looking at nearby places that might have parking, like an elementary school or retail establishment. A 10-15 minute walk is OK.

      April 16, 2013

  • Michael M.

    I'll bring a cake and a six-pack!

    April 15, 2013

    • Joffrey P.

      Hah, okay! That should help ensure that I don't make something I haven't before and have it turn out like this: http://calvinandhobbe...­

      April 15, 2013

    • Holger

      Don't you worry, I will take care of that part...

    I'll bring coleslaw and some dessert (TBD).

  • Mike K.

    Oops, hope you can squeeze me in. Please let me know if someone backs out. Thanks.

      I doubt the Pauli principle will become relevant in this situation, though ULers are kind of fermionic.

      Maybe I can bring my fave macaroni and cheese with rotel chilies.. ?

      April 11, 2013

    • Joffrey P.

      If I don't find fresh avocados, (or perhaps even if I do), I may bring some desserty thing. There are a couple of good standbys, and some things I'm considering trying.

      April 12, 2013

  • Mike K.

    I'm gonna bring a pot of Thai chicken curry.

  • Jen

    Thanks for hosting this get-together. I'll bring a dessert (brownies), and can bring an appetizer too (buffalo dip/veggies).

    • Michael M.

      Jen, how about your legendary haystacks? Those things were scrumptious.

      April 10, 2013

    • Jen

      Man, they were so hard to make... I guess I can whip some up. :)

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
