Global Reddit Meetup Day 2011

Global Reddit Meetup Day has been announced for June 25, 2011.  We'll be having a potluck BBQ at Quincy Park @ 2pm!

 

Potluck BBQ

As a reminder, alcohol is prohibited at Quincy Park, so please don't bring any!

 

Please bring food for at least 3 or 4 people.  There are a lot of people attending, and we want everyone to be able to eat.  If you can't bring food due to other commitments, please consider contributing $$$ so the organizers can purchase supplies as needed.

 

If you have any folding chairs, or tables, please bring them!

    Best Aspergers convention I've ever been to. Nah, it was a great time. By the end of the day, sea of smiles, gallery of giggles. And crime was way down, that was nice.

    Reddit Meetup, Bar, AND Mexico defeating USA 4-2, today was a good day. Definitely have to give the organizers a shout out for a very successful meetup. I think we've learned a good lesson today: people should bring more drinks and less chips. :D

    This might be a weird question but will the food be under a tent/overhang? I was going to bring a veggie platter but I was thinking it might get gross after an hour in the hot hot sun. Maybe I should just bring something non-spoilable. haha

    June 25, 2011

  • Rashod W.

    What stop/line is the best to get to the park? I'm interning in D.C., so I am not very familiar with the area.

    @sohrab: does this mean I can grab fewer buns?

    June 24, 2011

  • sohrab

    For anyone planning on bringing hotdogs or hamburgers, I have about 100 hamburgers and about 100 hotdogs that i got from costco with donation money. I also have buns for all of this
