Labor Day BBQ

  • August 30, 2014 · 4:00 PM

I'm new to the group and would like to invite members of this group to my Labor Day BBQ. I figure this will be a great way to get acquainted with your group. This will be cross posted with two other meetup groups I belong to. No need to rsvp if you already have rsvp with International Friends or the Italian Group.

I will be BBQing Chicken, Ribs, Shrimp, Burgers and Italian Sausage. For our Vegan friends, I will also be serving veggie burgers. Feel free to bring something for the grill to share with others.

My address will be emailed to everyone who has RSVP'd.

    I wanted to thank everyone who came out and celebrated Labor Day with me. Particularly I wanted to give a special thanks to Kendrick who did such an awesome job on the grill! I don't think I could have pulled this off without his generous help. i also wanted to thank Christine and everyone else who brought items to share--and of course to everyone who came out early to give me a hand in setting up.

    A number of you left behind dishes and utensil's I'm sure you all want back. I finished washing all of them so tomorrow will be a good day to pick them up. My cell phone is[masked]-7791.

    I apologize for not personally welcoming everyone who came out last night--but as you know I was busy on the grill. I hope to be able to talk to you in the future at other meetup events. By the way how was the chicken and the ribs? I never got a chance to sample them myself.

    Looks like this is going to be a great event with a large turn out. I hope that everyone enjoys themselves (safely and respectfully of course). Have a great BBQ and take lots of pictures!

    Thank you Dan for hosting this! I'm bringing a case of water & I look forward to meeting everyone!

    When parking please do not block any driveways or fire hydrants--you will be ticketed by Tampa PD and possibly towed. To make sure I don't piss off security too much I'm asking everyone to park on the side streets on my house first before parking on Cory Lake Dr which is the main street there. Across the street from my house is Bahama Isles and 3 houses down there is Martinique Isles. Please try to park on these 2 streets. They actually intersect with each other and go down another 1/2 mile. Of course if you are bringing something to the party, park in front of my hose, drop off whatever your bringing, then park your car. When these 2 streets are filled up the remainder of you can then park on Cory Lake Drive. This way security will eave us alone.

    I would really appreciate everyone abiding by these rules.

    Thank you

    Dan Colucci

    Hi Dan, anything else needed apart from Ice and a cooler? anything just ask, Regards, Pete

    August 30, 2014

  • DAN

    I was going to send another email with my address on it to everyone after the rsvp closed, but it appears I can no longer do that since the event is closed for rsvp's. So if anyone still does not have my address please let me know. looks like I'm going to have to do this in multiple posts they exceed the number of characters permitted. Ugh!

    Hi what time is the BBQ? One place said 1pm - 4pm and the other said 4pm - 1am. Also any suggestions on what we should bring? Really looking forward to getting to meet everyone!

    August 29, 2014

    • DAN

      BBQ starts at 4PM, ends at 1:00 AM-- I can eeo how you got confused.

    GM Dan, was wondering parking situation? where should we park?

    1 · August 29, 2014

    • DAN

      Very good question. There should be ample street parking, but do not block any driveway for fire hydrants. I would prefer you park on one of the side streets like Bahama Isle or Martinique instead of the main road of Cory Lake Dr. Both of those side streets I mentioned are only a few houses down from my house.

      August 28, 2014

  • DAN

    Apparently some people did not receive the email I sent out earlier this week with my address on it. I believe I have sent private messages to those who have requested it. If there is anyone else who did not receive the email about my address please send me a private message.

    Thank You,

    Dan

  • kendrick h.

    See you at 2pm, I have a charcoal grill also if you need it and just to make sure what about condiments (ketchup, mayo,mustard, hot dog or hamburger buns, knives, forks, spoons)?

    August 28, 2014

    • DAN

      Charcoal Grill will be perfect, thanks for offering. I already have all the condiments, but thanks for offering including 3 bottles of ketchup and 2 mustard.

      August 28, 2014

  • kendrick h.

    I can be there anytime after 1pm, so any suggestions on drinks?

    August 28, 2014

    • DAN

      How about 2 pm. As far as drinks I have quite an extensive bar, the only thing I'm not providing is beer, I'm expecting people to bring their favorite beer to share. I will also have wine, sangria and my infamous rum punch available.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
