    Photo pro, how about a dessert...

    January 12, 2013

    • Photo P.

      Will do!

      January 12, 2013

    • Derya

      Matt- i will bring savory finger foods that are good as appetizers.

      January 12, 2013

  • Matt

    It's near the courthouse metro in Arlington. Will give you the address in a few hrs when I am near my Mac

    Thank you for hosting, Matt. What do we still need? PS Could u message the location?

    January 12, 2013

  • Matt

    One is good. Let's do a Brooklyn Lager for tomorrow.

    January 11, 2013

  • Matt

    All-When we say main dish, I'd like to clarify/update that to mean "heavy appetizer" something that is still finger food and fits. Exception is the pizza, that will be fine. I'll cut that up after its cooked... Whatever we do for the vegetarian dish I'm sure will be fine too.

    January 10, 2013

    • Lynn

      For finger food, I'll be bringing mini spanokopitas then instead of the other dish. This will also be veggie and I might make them in your oven (20 mins) so they don't get soggy on the way :) If so, I'll arrive early.

      January 11, 2013

  • Matt

    Thank you all for volunteering to bring food. This is excellent!! CGC and others: If you are bringing anything that needs to be heated, please feel free to arrive early as 5:15 to park, bring stuff to my apartment, and start preparing it...Please reply to the thread to give everyone a heads up and text me. Renee, Jenny, Lynn, E. Carol, and Derya: If you could each reply to the thread and say whether your food is hot or cold that would be great...and if you need to arrive early...
    At the moment, a cold/room temperature app would be preferable so we don't need to do a rock-paper-scissors tournament to determine who gets the first shot with the oven, stove top, and microwave!

      Thanks for the update, Matt. I will be bringing meatballs that will be warm when I get there but will need to be heated up, so it won't take too long. If I find the other appetizer, then I'll need the oven for a bit longer (spinach cheese things - I have no idea of what they're called LOL).

      January 11, 2013

    • Lynn

      My dish is hot and I'll just need to zap it in the micro to bring it back to hot when I arrive.

      January 11, 2013

  • Matt

    Renee, could you bring a dessert?

    January 10, 2013

  • Matt

    Keith, if you are coming, please bring a six pack of beer.

    January 10, 2013

  • Matt

    Joshua, For photos, I found you on Flickr and found you. You have a Jonny Grave and the Tombstones@Red Palace album, right? We're all set. Could you bring a 6 pack of beer and a bottle of wine? Cheese is a good plan.

    Hey Everyone! Sorry I haven't had a chance before to reply to all the recent activity. It seems like with all the people bringing food, that we're more than covered on that end. I was going to bring a couple bottles of wine and some cheese, but I can also bring beer, if we need it. Matt, Concerning photos, is there any way you could access the internet through your apple tv? I was thinking about creating a collection of some of my photos on my Flickr page. If not, I guess I can put the photos on my ipod touch, and bring it over.

    See you all soon!

    Dennis asked about whether to do a vegetarian dish. Let's assume no one is vegetarian/vegan or allergic to major ingredients like gluten, peanuts, etc if no one says so by 10 tomorrow morning. Dennis we'll know by tomorrow & then go for it. :)

    January 9, 2013

    • Derya

      Great to hear that! I am not very familiar with the vegetarian dishes :) Matt, based on everyone's reply, what would you like me to bring?

      January 10, 2013

      So I'll bring meatballs and something else. I'll need to use your oven, Matt!

      January 10, 2013

  • Matt

    Derya,
    How about you or your guest bring a vegetarian dish--or connect talk with someone else here about it...

    January 9, 2013

  • Matt

    Ok, who wants to bring a main dish?

    January 9, 2013

    • A former member

      I can bring a main dish instead... that's no problem. Meatballs? Vegetarian dish?

      January 9, 2013

    • Renee F.

      I can bring something....

      January 9, 2013

  • Matt

    For number of photos, I don't see why we need a limit. Let's figure like 5-7 mins for show & tell. Or if you have a pile of photos and can easily flip to the ones you prefer that works too. My bet is about 7-15 photos you can show folks (more if there are some you want to linger on). Another idea is to make it a game where we each person brings a lot of photos and teams of people work together to pick out photos that illustrate a technique--IF we want to get that structured :) Ken, what has worked well in the past?

    Yes, on the napkins, thanks Dennis...

    I'm more of a wine person. White wines (the sweeter the better). I have a couple wine glasses that I can bring over as well. I have some paper plates in the house and if you need napkins, I have those too.

    I'll be bringing a dessert! I'm looking forward to meeting everyone! I'll grab a bottle of wine too! Thanks for opening up your home, Matt! Now, I need to pull together my photos! Are we setting a limit on how many photos? Matt, I can zip them and email over to you by Friday.

    January 8, 2013

    Hello all,

    We need 1-2 more main items-we currently have we have pasta and Digorno pizza. Are you all going to prefer beer or wine? We do need some beer-how about microbrew lagers. Let’s have that picked out by Saturday morning...

    Or, if folks are more into wine, could everyone give a vote on which they prefer. If we have more than 6 doing wine, we need someone to bring more glasses...Could you let us know by Saturday morning on the drink preferences.

    If anyone wants to bring paper plates that would be great. I have ceramic ones, but that would be a good backup. I have 6 wine glasses and plenty of beer glasses & cups for everyone. My building has a mini mart with party food, beer, wine, etc at ground level, but its a buck or two more expensive than most other stories per item and its a $10 minimum for a credit card.

    Hi Matt,
    Thank you for opening your home to us! i am looking forward to it. @Dennis - if you aren't bringing home, I can bring dessert and wine. Please let me know. Best,
    Derya

    Dennis, how about a dessert...

    All: Anyone vegan, vegetarian or allergic to something? FYI: I have no pets...

    Looking forward to seeing what you took photos of. Photosharing announcement/guidance:

    I am using my Apple TV and TV to show the photos. Pick the easiest option for you and reply this week if you have questions and let me know which option you will use. Opts 1-2 require some time to transfer the files to my Apple TV folder so sending me the files in advance helps...
    1. You can bring a cd/dvd/flash drive
    2. Internet file sharing (drop box/so many options) and I download to my laptop.
    3. You can download them to your iphone's/iPad's photo stream app and then we will do airplay(beams photo to Apple TV from phone),
    4. Upload them to Flickr.
    5. Upload them to YouTube or Vimeo.
