"Bitter End" Crew Party ~ 2013's Last Hurrah for Winni Sailors!

  • Oct 20, 2013 · 5:30 PM
  • Elizabeth's House on Route-4

We look forward to once again enjoying the good company of those peeps who met as strangers and then became sailing friends. This party is a Hurrah, for all who joined in making Winni's Summer 2013 a Great Sailing Season. It would be a pleasure to see all again, one last time, before the snow flies!  

So now, what are the party plans? There is no meal-plan or on-site grilling. For this party, please bring finger food with the aim of nibbling off a cocktail plate while "working the room".  Hosts are not serving alcohol. But will have cups, ice & a few mixes on hand for BYOB. 

Elizabeth is opening her retired Antiques Shop for the party. It's very easy to get to. Her house is a forest green Victorian, facing on Rt-4. The shop is attached to the right side of the house, with parking there, and on the grass on both sides of the house. 

Please use dialog box to note if you are bring food (or drink) to share. If you expect to not be imbibing, and are willing to give a ride to others from your area, please considering making a ride-share offer here too. Thanks!

    Elizabeth~ Sorry for us stragglers lingering so late. You were kind to indulge. And Thank You again, for all the prep effort & your generous invite to us all, to enjoy the use of your barn. Also appreciated: The many trips to the kitchen during the party ~ Heating all that Polish Sausage (again! & again!), and the finger food too. A treat to meet your hosting support, the understated Will. Please share a thank you, for his many gracious contributions. Quietly done, but not unnoticed ~ Maureen

    Thank you, Elizabeth and Maureen, for your time and generosity in hosting a charming party. I will also always remember those special glasses used during the toast! The venue was very quaint and we couldn't have done better with the weather. Warm cheer, Steph

    Hi Guys, while a one eyed salior is in season, I will have to excuse myself from tonight festivities. Recovery a little slower than I had hoped. Enjoy...

      ...and... critical to next Summer's Sailing Plans, when your crew says: "Aye Aye Skipper", we do want that to be an accurate count!

      Well the Drunken Sailors are done, and I am reminded once again that like all drunken sailors, they really aren't as good as advertised!!!

    Hello, campers. A bit much to add this to my day now that it is here. A dear friend I hadn't seen for a couple of years spent the weekend and we stayed up gabbing until 2:30 this morning (a bit of red wine helped us sail along). ;^)

    I'm due out on the Gundalow for one of its last trips at noon and won't be back on land until 3:30 or 4. Seems best to regroup and set my sights on next season when I'll actually SAIL with some of you.

    Happy you all had an excellent few months on the water. Salut!

      Andrea ~ Looks like you have perfect day for water-based duties! If you're not too pooped after Gundalow crewing, you are very welcome to come late, bring friend, & kick-back in "come as you are" condition ~ including being wind blown & briny, Matey. Its a "good look" on you, very "party worthy" ...and... Would always be nice to see you in whatever condition. If not, then sorry to miss you ~ Hope you have a nice day on the water ~ MT

    I'll bring a cake.

    Since MT is involved, that's not enough information, so I want to go a bit more into detail. It will be an un-German German Chocolate Cake, or in other words, a German German Chocolate Cake, or maybe better described as a German un-German Chocolate Cake. Some might call it a real German chocolate cake, but that misses the point. Because from an etymological point of view, the German Chocolate Cake has nothing to do with a similar sounding country in Old Europe, but with a late New World baker named Mr. German. So this will be a cake not the style created by Mr. German, but the style German Mrs created their cakes. Since German Chocolate Cakes were most likely all created by female Germans in the past century, whereas the German Chocolate Cake was created by a male, the proper way to describe the cake I'll bring might be Female German Chocolate Cake (as opposed to the Male German Chocolate Cake).

      Now let's discuss the ratios of ingredients, mathematically correctly described as dCake = (Female German Chocolate Cake) / (Male German Chocolate Cake). After properly canceling down the equation we find the female on top, which might explain why the chocolate content is lower.

      Just in case the reader now doesn't remember anymore what I was saying:

      I'll bring a cake.

    OK, if there are so few food / potluck entries, I guess I'll have to bring my juicer and force feed attendees with green sludge of the "hold your breath and just swallow" kind....

      Ahhh ...a jest of "bad taste"? ...or "foul mouth" humor? ha...
