The Summer Wind: BBQ in the Park !!BONUS: Film Fest!

UPDATE:  OK, so two things--some peeps want to meet earlier so I pushed the start time to 2 PM.  I may not be there then but a 2-3:30 window may work for me and my time management skills.  Grilling at 4 (so eat lunch before coming).  Try to add your anticipated time of arrival below.

ALSO:  Turns out there's a film fest hosted by Liev Schreiber happening on the Neathermead that same afternoon which means a few things MIGHT happen:  A. Relocate to the Nethermead for the festival B. move to the Nethermead when the films start in the evening.  C. It's Brooklyn and the place will be crawling with Goddard-wannabes and altogether too crowded for my tastes and we go somewhere else.

First off, I hope I'm not stepping on the toes of the other meetup--in fact I'm hoping people could do both!

This is pretty straight forward--I have a bbq, you like grilled food.  I'll be lighting up around 4 so feel free to come on by and heat something up.  The grill is particularly unsophisticated so be ready.  The grill bars themselves are far apart and food has a way of sinking though them.  I'll probably bring some in foil for anything that's going to be tricky.

Bring beer, food, etc.  Hopefully everyone will share and we'll have a good-old time.  And, if we're feeling up to it, we hit a nearby bar when it gets dark.

There are things that we all need, and I'll put an impartial list here, so if you can bring any of these, add a comment.

  • ketchup
  • mustard
  • plates
  • cups
  • napkins
  • frisbee
  • knifes, forks, spoons
  • baseball glove(s)

    Hey everyone, looking forward to hanging out.

    Couple things:
    1. People ask what to bring but I leave it to you. Looks like Francesca is getting a lot of the basics so be sure that you offer her some of whatever you bring. I'll have my little BBQ going at 4 for anything you want to grill.

    2. The best way to figure where we're going to be is to click on the location on top. Or cut and paste this: https://maps.google.com/maps?q=40.662243,-73.978065

      Ok, so that little green arrow would be the exact spot (precisely) where the bbq is set up? So we don't have to walk very far into the park?
