Laid Back Evening Backyard BBQ

  • September 4, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • Brian's House

Hopefully by September the weather has cooled down just enough to be tolerable! Weather permitting, I'd like to have a small backyard get together Wednesday September 4th. BBQ and all that jazz! Little something to break up the work week. 

If you have an outdoor type chair you'd like to bring, that'd be great. I only have about 4 outdoor chairs.

We will have burgers and brats, as well as some PBR for those who are of drinking age. Feel free to BYOB if PBR isn't your thing. And if you'd like to bring a little something to share (cookies, potato salad, soda, etc.) feel free!

See you all tomorrow. 

IMPORTANT:
Please text or email me for the address before Wednesday at noon. If I don't receive an email or text from you, I will have to take you off the RSVP list to make room for people on the waiting list.[masked], [masked].

Thanks guys!

    It was fun, met some nice people, was really surprised at how talkative and lively some people were for being in a shy group. I didn't know what to expect, but I wanted more meat haha, like a lot more - I was starving, ribs, hot dogs, steak, bbq chicken comes to mind with BBQ. I brought some snacks, but now I feel like I should have bought meat or grilled corn husks... or biscuits mmm, I forget a lot of BBQs aren't down home southern style like my family in Tennessee makes. : p

    I have to put my cat down after work today so I won't be able to make it. Hopefully the next one though.

    September 4, 2013

    • Brian

      Sorry to hear about your cat. I'm a dog guy myself, but I think it's the probably the same feeling regardless of the type of pet. Sorry man.

    Why @ 2:PM is there 1 spot available, yet still 5 on the waiting list? Don't wait-listers automagically move up to yes when a spot opens up?

    September 4, 2013

    • Brian

      When I host events at my home, I have it set to manual.

      September 4, 2013

  • Brian

    Ava and Mandy, I didn't hear from you guys, so I moved you onto the waitlist.

    September 4, 2013

  • Shea B.

    Circumstances have conspired to make my attendance tonight iffy. And since I'm not sure, and there are so many people on the wait list, I'm just gonna bow out now. I'll definitely come to the other one later this month, though.

    September 4, 2013

  • Brian

    Hey guys! Don't forget, please text or email me for the address by noon today. Anyone I don't hear from by noon today will be removed from the RSVP list to make room for those waitlisted.

    September 4, 2013

  • Geoff

    I'm just way too tired to go today :(. Aleah, you're up!

    (PS): Please update your RSVP if you're not able to go!

    Hey Brian, are you gonna have some lighting out back by the grill? You need me to bring some? I have a work light rig (2 very bright halogen lights) on a tripod...can adjust to ~6 ft height. Also have a propane lantern. Let me know.

    1 · August 27, 2013

    • Brian

      That's a great idea actually. I'm going to be meeting with the owner of the house about maybe getting some kind of lighting back there this weekend, but I'm not sure if it would actually be installed before this event. I will touch base with you on Monday or Tuesday.

      August 27, 2013

    • Brian

      Lights would be awesome.

      August 30, 2013

  • Brian

    Hey guys! If you're on the waitlist and don't end up on this event, I encourage you to attend our bigger weekend BBQ on September 15th! Also, if you are currently on the attending list and won't be able to make it, please be sure to update your RSVP, as we have a rather large waiting list. Thanks!

    1 · August 30, 2013

  • Karina Q.

    Wow.. Nice turn out.. lol I guess this date isn't changing!

    1 · August 20, 2013

    • Brian

      And you guys where worried I'd have a flop with this one. Lol

      2 · August 27, 2013

    • Karina Q.

      I hoped it would so it'd be easier to come to it! That is, if I make it off the Waitlist..

      1 · August 27, 2013

  • Brian

    Hey guys! As you can see, we've got a wait list going. If you can't make it, please be sure to update your RSVP. Thanks!

    Ill bring pulled pork, but i think it would be better if we threw the party closer to the weekend. Just my two cents.
