4th Annual Backyard BBQ Blast, Plainview NY

THIS IS A JOINT MEETUP WITH A FEW GROUPS. PLEASE ONLY RSVP ON ONE GROUP. I have a limit of approx 60 people attending from all the groups combined.

There is a lot of cost involved in having this, There is a $5.00 per person charge that will go towards things needed for the BBQ

****Also if it should rain then this will be held on Sunday September 8th. So when you RSVP let me know if you can make it on both days should that happen or one day over the other

This is going to be your typical Backyard BBQ. Every one brings something to share, food, beverages, snacks.  If you have a recipe for a wonderful marinade for meat (steaks, hamburgers) chicken, shrimp then make and bring that, or if you make the worlds best salads (potato, macaroni, cole slaw, cold pasta salad)

If you are bringing hamburgers/buns please list what kind (eg) beef, turkey, veggie, ect and how many.

What else makes a great BBQ?? baked beans, corn on the cob, chicken wings, chips and dips (salsa, guacamole) watermelon (fruit salad), veggie platter, cheese and crackers and of cause pepperoni.

You also can't have a BBQ without hamburgers (with all the fixings, buns, pickles, tomatoes, onion, ketchup) hot dogs (buns, mustard, relish, chili)

Other foods for a BBQ sausage, ribs.

And to wash it all down, nice cold beer, wine, soda, iced tea, lemonade, water.

I have listed many things for the BBQ now its up to you to decide what you would like to contribute to this wonderful event. Please post what you will be making/bringing and also answer the questions.

For those who have been to my other BBQ's you know what a great time we have, for my new members come check out my meetup, you won't be disappointed.

This meetup is open to all members who may bring a guest (spouse, boyfriend, girlfriend, friend, sister, brother).

This meetup is CO-ED and ADULTS ONLY (NO KIDS).

***Please remember if you RSVP yes don't be a NO SHOW -- Food Amounts are made based on the number of people coming. If you RSVP yes and can't make it just remember to change your response. Also if you are bringing a guest put plus one to include them.

***Also if you say you are bringing something like the buns for the BBQ then you dont show up we will be bun-less so please please if you say you are coming, come (I understand things can happen just give enough notice if you can)

***Recommendation to always bring empty containers with you for any take home left overs.

There is a lot of cost involved in having this, There is a $5.00 per person charge that will go towards things needed for the BBQ

SEE YOU THERE

    I would like to come with a friend but see that it is all booked up. How will I find out if I can attend. Thanks

    September 2, 2013

    • Karen M.

      if anyone should change rsvp from yes to no the people on the wait list move up- I will see when it gets closer if more can come as this is up on a few groups and they are not at the limit yet so I might be able to add a few more from this group-- I should know by Thursday- Please check back

      September 2, 2013

  • Jean S.

    I was confirmed 2xs. Does that mean I can bring a friend? I said before I will bring some beef Hot Dogs & Buns & pay at the door the $5.00. Is that OK? Jean Sciacca

    September 2, 2013

    • Karen M.

      I am not sure why you were confirmed 2x- since there was a limit of 25 and when you were moved up it only moved you up and not your plus one- There are some people who signed up on more then one group so there really should not be in the count on here so I might be able to do your plus one-- I have to see the count up to this point--

      September 2, 2013

  • Jean S.

    I would like to come to the BBQ with my friend & bring some hot dogs & buns, if thats OK. Jean Sciacca

    September 2, 2013

    Karen, it sounds like fun.

    September 1, 2013

    • Loren

      Let me know what Steve and I can bring.

      September 2, 2013

    • Loren

      Yes, I just saw Lee signed up so we will probably go straight to you after his walking meetup.

      September 2, 2013

    Hi Karen, can I bring friend with me too?

    I am attending through a different group, so I didn't RSVP here.
    I hope to get to see all of you. :-)

    I was at Karens last BBq & it was a blast.
    Nice & incredibly friendly people, great food, & a really nice day in general.

    I paid her the $5 through her other group. E-mail her if you have to pay so she can give you a way to pay...probably through her paypal account??

    I am trying to figure out what to bring... I am thinking a ketchup, mustard, & a small homemade side would be ok...not sure whether other people will be bringing that as well so I can know if I need to bring larger or smaller quantity or not.

    September 1, 2013

    • A former member
      A former member

      Just curious, what is everyone else bringing?? I am a foodie, so I like to know what to expect that will be there for me to eat. :-)

      I will be arriving around 5ish b/c of an earlier event; I will definitely be there as soon as I'm able.

      @ Denise... her backyard isn't the easiest to get to. I believe it can be managed with assistance though.

      I hope you are having a fun labor day weekend.

      Ok, see you soon! :-)

      September 1, 2013

    • Karen M.

      thanks for letting me know Andrea I can put you down for the mustard and ketchup let me know for sure and thanks in advance it helps to know so we know what is still needed ;`)

    hi if any live in medford i need a ride back and forth would like to go

    September 1, 2013

  • Denise C.

    I wrote one email about wanting to come very much but I am physically disabled and in a wheelchair. I am trying to fine someone to take me, and I need to know if your backyard is accessible by a chair. Is there a major hill involved, a lot of plants and such that makes pushing my chair that much more difficult. I cannot RSVP until I know what your backyard is like and if I will be able to navigate it in my chair. I cannot tell you how much this progressive disability is keeping me from doing things and meeting people but I assure you I do all I can to live the full live I used to have before my Multiple Sclerosis advanced to this stage. I try to pretend it isn't there sometimes and I encourage others to also, but I do need a little help. Please get back to me soon so I know if I can make it. Thanks. Denise Coleman

    August 24, 2013

    • Karen M.

      thanks Krisen so looking forward to this and having everyone and you and mike at my home -- I am making a list of what people said they are bringing so far. Everyone has to decide soon so we know what is being brought and what is needed - last year I had over 65 people. I think this year will top that, and I want to make sure we have a little of everything

  • Karen M.

    Hi all looking forward to this event-- Please when you RSVP answer the questions- especially what you will be bringing so we can compile a list of the food so we have enough-- I expect about the same as last year about 65 people. So more then one person can bring some burgers and rolls and stuff like that-- i will put a list of things on the discussion board
