July Monthly Meetup

  • Jul 20, 2014 · 2:00 PM
  • Melanie's house

Join us as we watch the HBO documentary "Dead Mother's Club" at Melanie's new house in Grapevine. We will also BBQ after the movie. Melanie will provide meat, and everyone else can bring side items potluck style. If weather it's nice, we can play some yard games, catch up, and share our impressions about the documentary. Mel will also provide kleenex just in case! Here is a link with a description of the documentary for those who are unfamiliar with it.

  • shannon

    Mel i can bring 2 pack pf hot dogs if you want... Let me know

    July 16, 2014

    • Melanie T.

      Well, I dunno. What do you think? I bought chicken when there was like 15 RSVP but I bought extra. And it is kabob chunks so everyone can pick and choose how much they want. I saw someone mention the idea and thought it was good. I think you are already bringing a lot though.

      July 16, 2014

    • Melanie T.

      PLUS there are tons of sides? I am opn the fence and overthinking it as usual. Someone else decide! :-) Oh and Sherryl may want too I dont know.

      July 16, 2014

  • KIM

    I'm definitely bringing cole slaw... Pats making it....I'm bringing some wine. Trying to decide what "appetizer"?? Any suggestions? There's going to be many side dishes...

    1 · July 15, 2014

    • Melanie T.

      I saw a cheeseball peanutbutter combo that sounds amazing, and besides that I think the appetizer/munchy type snacks we have so far are Deviled eggs, veggie tray, chips. hmmmmmm How about just the cole slaw? If you want to add an extra something, maybe sodas? a couple 2 liters maybe? I have spirits (plus many are bringing) and tea and water.... can't think of much else but excited to try it all.
