Sat April 4 at 6:00 PM, Brisket n' such at Toekneesan's
825 College Avenue, Columbus, OH, USA (Map & Directions)
Hey Columbus! The family is leaving this weekend and I'm alone Friday and Saturday night. Anyone available for a something?
I'm free Friday night, all day Saturday, and Sunday morning. Museum? Movie? Beer? Board game?

Yeah! It's actually Passover this weekend and I was thinking of making a brisket and some kugel or something; if it's a small enough group I could bring some food wherever. I just have ballet rehearsal until 3 on Saturday; otherwise I'm free and up for anything!

I'm free Friday or Saturday night!

Either night works for me as well.

I'll be helping to run the Columbus Brew Adventures Grandview tour on Saturday (tickets still available!), and I think we're going to do a Sunday IKEA run...but I'll keep an eye on this! :)

If you haven't tried Hot Chicken Takeover or Condado in the short north, I STRONGLY recommend them.

I've been meaning to try Hot chicken Takeover. But I also love a good brisket.

I'm not keeping particularly kosher for Passover, so I'd also be happy to go out somewhere! I'd invite folks over, but we live in a pretty small apartment and my boyfriend might not be super enthusiastic about having a gang over for the moment. But if we gather somewhere else, I'll try out my mom's brisket recipe.

I'm more than happy to host. I live in Bexley, on College near Capital. But Hot Chicken Takeover has been on my list for a while. I can go either way, and of course both is also an option. If we do the brisket, I'll make sourdough bread. And I can probably provide a dessert. Jenny's is at the end of my block, and Graeter's is a couple of blocks up from that. ChuraChura, I love kugel, so if we can have only one starch, I'd go with that. But where's the rule that says only one starch? Also, being in Bexley, I could probably hook us up with some wicked matzo ball soup, should we choose an unleavened route.

Jeni's. You can tell I'm new to the area. Dinner, my place, Saturday?

Sounds good to me - I just need to check with my boyfriend. If he's willing, could he come too? I'll definitely bring brisket; don't know if the oven will support a kugel too.

Of course the boyfriend can come. I think my oven can handle a brisket and kugel, if that's what you mean. Let's convene at 5, eat around 6. If the maybes don't chime in I'll provide a veggie, bread, and dessert—or maybe we'll walk up the street for ice cream.

OK, sounds good to me. I can cook the brisket at my place and bring it over to finish - my recipe takes about 3 hours. Depending on when I get out of rehearsal, we may be a little bit late (closer to 6 than 5, I'd guess). I'll find a good kugel recipe and bring ingredients with us - that can cook while we ponder why this night is different from all other nights :-)

OK! We're in! I'll bring brisket and some unleavened carbs, and maybe some good (i.e., not Manischewitz) wine!

I've moved it to 6ish.

Brisket is in the oven, charoset is about to be made! Beer is being grabbed! Looking forward to seeing you.

OK, running a little late, but we'll be there in 10-15 minutes!
posted by ChuraChura at 3:02 PM on April 4, 2015

No worries.

ChuraChura, you left some matza and a wooden spoon. Let me know if you want those back, else soup!
posted by Toekneesan at 7:00 PM on April 6, 2015

Oh, whoops! Well, you're welcome to both! It is a good spoon, but wooden spoons are not hard to come by!
