Pre-4th of July Grill/Potluck at Greg_Ace's DATE/TIME CHANGE
posted June 25, 2012 8:05 PM   RSS | iCal | +googleCal

Sun July 1 at 5:00 PM, Greg_Ace's house
4414 SE Center St, Portland, OR, USA (Map & Directions)
Kind of a short-notice thing, I know (this is NOT the "BBQ meat-up" discussed previously, that'll be later this summer). As July 4th falls on a Wednesday, and I'll have a houseguest with me this coming weekend, I thought it would be fun to have a little get-together. NOTE - DATE AND TIME HAVE CHANGED.
Established practice is that I'll have Something Smoked; but all manner of eats is the word of the day. A charcoal grill will also be available for burgers, dogs, sausages, veggies, whatever people feel like bringing.

And of course, plenty of cool refreshing beverages!

Due to outside factors, the day has been changed from Saturday to Sunday.

Depending on how things go, I'll try to come by.

We'll stop by if it's on Saturday- there's a friend's band performing later that afternoon that I want to catch. Or, if Sunday works for people, we could more thoroughly "hang out" as it were.

Either day is equally iffy for me.

What say, folks, is Sunday better?

Sunday is very questionable for us.

I am unable to attend either Saturday or Sunday. Next time!

What is the probability of fireworks later in the evening?
Just curious.

Fine by me. You bring 'em, we'll fling 'em!

Due to outside circumstances beyond my control, I've had to change the day from Saturday to Sunday and move it to 5pm. Sorry, those of you who can't come Sunday, nothing personal

I shall be there, bringing some meaty things for grilling.

Cool! I've got a chicken and a small pork roast for smoking, so something beefy or sausage-y/hot-dog-y for variety would work great. I also have ears of corn to roast.

Sausages 'tis! Roast corn sounds tasty.

I'm planning to bring a small cantaloupe to grill (sounds crazy, but I have a recipe and I'm curious what it will taste like), some bread if I remember to bake it between now and then, and some sort of beer or cider.

I will be bringing potato salad...of DOOM.

Excellent.... On the spur of the moment (i.e. having stumbled across an interesting recipe the night before), I'm preparing vegetable matter that will nicely round out the menu. I believe we have a plan.

I decided grilling melon is not really sounding tasty to me so I'm bringing plums to grill instead.
