Cookout on the Bay

So some of y'all may know I live in Crown Point right on Sail Bay. Monday, May 27th is Memorial Day (and my birthday) so I thought what better way to celebrate than to have a day of bay activities. Since I live so close, I will go out at 6 shitty in the morning and save us a firepower and claim us a spot where we can see Sea World's fireworks in the evening. Y'all bring frisbees and other beach stuff. Why the bay? It will not be as busy as the ocean and you still have the sand and water. I will also scam us some parking if I can.

      I had SOOOOOOOO much fun. I think my favorite part was the dancing at the end. I don't think anyone but us would believe none of us had had even a drop of alcohol. We were rocking it!!!

    I just wanted to thank y'all once again for coming. Y'all really made my birthday special and I hope everybody had a good time. I would like to thank everybody who brought food and those who grilled (Sandy and Pat) and Kevin for bringing the grill and kayaks. I will be happy to host more events like this one if y'all will come! So...

    THANKS

      Hi, I'm new to SD, been here one other time, not sure I'm in the right area. Are you close to the 3 parking lots by the south entrance?

      May 27, 2013

  • Jen

    Is there an address for this area in general to drive to? I'm horrible with directions....and coordinates are not going to help (I know this is the nerd group and all :p)

    May 27, 2013

    • Jen

      Awesome! Thank you....I'm directionally challeneged.

      May 27, 2013

    May 27, 2013

  • Sandy aka The Bubbly O.

    We will need paper towels. I thought I had some, but I'm out.

    I am riding with Kevin and bringing large grill, paper plates, TP, plastic utensils and all manner of chairs, tables, ice packs, cooler, and camp-type gear. I do not own a popup shelter, but I'm bringing a bunch of other stuff.

    May 27, 2013

    • Steve B

      I can bring paper towels.

      May 27, 2013

    If someone could bring foam cooler with ice, it would be appreciated.

    Hmm... what time is the grill/charcoal coming over? Is Sandy still bringing one?

    May 27, 2013

    • Koichi

      Cool, I was just informed by Lindsay that we will have full grilling capabilities...

      May 27, 2013

  • Koichi

    If anyone is stopping by a grocery store and could pick up ~10-15$ worth of burgers (probably frozen?) then I would repay them when I get to Crown Point... it would save me a trip to the store, and help out alot since I am biking and can't carry too much. I guess I should probably put up my phone number for whomever to call to confirm to make sure I don't have 5 people buying burger patties for me :P 858-2four[masked]

    May 27, 2013

    • Priscila A.

      I got it :). [masked]

      May 27, 2013

    • Koichi

      Thanks Priscila, you are awesome!!! I'll be there from 12-1:30 ish and on the off chance you don't make it by then I will give the money to Lindsay to pay you back!

    Ok y'all I'm here at Crown Point Shores with my car parked so I can switch with Kevin. I'm in a pink chair with a blue umbrella so y'all come on! And bring me breakfast please.

    May 27, 2013

    Ok y'all nerds, I wanted to give an update on Monday. I will be going out in the wee hours and I will call an audible for exactly where we will be, so may sure you check this thread before heading out. If there are a lot of people in the park, I can move it to closer to my place, so we will have a bathroom and a fridge if we need it.
    Here is a round up of what people have said they will bring:
    Me-hot dogs, potato salad, table, blanket
    Thomas- chicken keleguin and tortilla chips
    Jeremy- sausage (obviously)
    Nick- dessert
    Cheri-chips and salsa
    Kristen-spinach salad
    Ryan- burgers
    Sandy-Paper products

    What we need: Drinks! We need water and sodas. We also need trash bags. There will be trash cans, but we don't want to leave any trash behind. Yall need to bring your own chairs. We also need ipods. My number is (256)[masked] if yall need to reach me that day!

      There's no way I can carry all of that.

      May 27, 2013

  • Vijay K.

    Guys- this would be my first time :-) ... looking forward to meet all of you. I can bring water, some other snacks.
    what is the parking scene; where do we park?

    1 · May 27, 2013

  • Niklaus P.

    So my roommate needs me to pick him up from the airport at 1:30... Due to this and some other stuff I've got going on, I'll most likely be there around supper (4'ish)... So far on the votes for my stuff I'm bringing is (1) 0, (2) 1, (3) 0, & (4) 1. Again (1) is Lemon-curd tarts with raspberry, (2) Mocha marble mousse, (3) apple crisp, and (4) Apple-cherry tarts. I need to know by no later than tomorrow when I'm going to pick up the ingredients (got work on Saturday and I'll be making the stuff Sunday)

    May 23, 2013

    • Alexander P.

      if each gets 1 vote do we get everything?!

      May 26, 2013

    • Niklaus P.

      Too late... it came out to 3 for Mocha marble mousse and 1 for Apple-cherry tarts... I'm making the mousse in the morning if I can ever get to sleep :-S

      May 27, 2013

  • Matt P.

    Looking forward to meeting the group for the first time

    May 26, 2013

    Anyone bringing a cooler tomorrow? Also, how many burgers should I bring tomorrow?

    May 26, 2013

  • Katie O.

    Aw man!! Just got word that my god father is in town tomorrow! Won't be able to make it out! As I'll be spending it with my extended family!

    May 26, 2013

      Oh noes! The birthday girl can't be there?!? Well happy early birthday anyway...

      May 26, 2013

  • Koichi

    Looks like I have to leave by 1:30-2pm so I might just ride the bike over at noon. I'll bring a couple of frisbees (Lindsay, please bring them back!) and whatever other food I can cram into my backpack or bring over to Lindsay's place tomorrow morning.

    May 26, 2013

  • DJ (.

    I might swing by for an hour (haven't decided yet) and would like to know what time other people are planning on heading down there. Some mentioned in previous comments of a plan to arrive sometime in the evening, but any others planning on getting there right at noon or early afternoon? If I do swing by I wanted to maximize the amount of social time with as many people as possible at one time before I have to head to work in the late afternoon.

    May 26, 2013

  • Kevin

    If I can make it, I'd want to bring my kayak. What are the chances of finding a parking spot near the water so I can splash the boat? Slim to none on a holiday unless I get there at 6am?

    May 20, 2013

    • Kevin

      That is most gracious of you. Then will plan on rolling up in a white stakebed truck with two kayaks aboard.

      May 23, 2013

    • Jonathan

      I'm down. Haven't been kayaking in a few years.

      May 26, 2013

  • Niklaus P.

    So anyone down for carpooling to this to help with the parking situation? If so, I can fit 1 person in my car... However, I won't be able to arrive until later, so that'd have to be taken into consideration...

    May 26, 2013

  • Lindsay

    So small poll, if a fire pit is not something. Y'all care about, we can meet in my courtyard and walk down. This will also keep me from having to go down so early.

    May 22, 2013

    • Sandy aka The Bubbly O.

      If someone has a pickup truck, I have a nice grill I could bring over. I live in Bay Park, and have an uber-small car, so someone would need to meet me here, load it, then we can go over there.

      May 23, 2013

    • Niklaus P.

      Your car is beyond small... It's smaller than mine and that's saying something :-P

      May 26, 2013

  • Sean D.

    I can bring trash bags how many?

    May 25, 2013

  • Cheri E.

    Do we have a "list" going of what people are bring? Just want to make sure we don't all bring deserts or chips LOL

    2 · May 22, 2013

    • Kathryn

      We do need burgers, definitely!

      May 24, 2013

    • Ryan P.

      Then I'll make sure to pick some up, along with plenty of toppings!

    This is not a "Lindsay Birthday event" rather just a holiday that happens to be my birthday. Fireworks will be about 9 at Sea World so I will be there till then. I will post my number the day before so y'all can find me. I have a grill so we an decide on eating times.

    May 17, 2013

    • Katie O.

      Haha if it's not a "Lindsay birthday a event" we can make it a "Katie birthday event" as my bday is on the 30th :)
