the honary Martin Michalowski "Fresh Meat" BBQ

- who wants to go early (as early in the afternoon as possible) and reserve (stake out and claim for ai-grads) a firepit at dockweiler?

if we don't get a volunteer, my sources say it's unlikely we will get a fire pit -- as people come and stake them out early, esp. on weekends (and fridays).

we will have to be "flexible" for this event -- as we're not paying ($200+) for a reservation anywhere, so we may have to move sites to find a park with an open BBQ spot

- the nearly unanimous consensus (as I'm the only one who wanted to do pot-luck) is to all contribute money...
i say we each (those of us attending) give $10 towards the BBQ, and we donate any extra to charity? any other ideas here?

- one idea for this BBQ is to indoctrinate any new students in ISD (hence Martin's clever tag line "fresh meat") -- any comments there?

- i suggest the menu be hambugers, grilled italian veggies (which means summer veg grilled in a foil packet with italian dressing), and smores -- what do you think? what about our vegetarians, what can we do for you?

- Martin did volunteer to take care of the fire, right? :) Does that also mean he's the chief chef, or do we have another volunteer for that?

- I say beer is OK, but maybe BYOB? comments?

I volunteer myself for the cooking - not the burgers, but the gourmet stuff.

How many vegetarians do we have? I can bring some paneer (Indian cottage cheese).

I can volunteer to hold the spot. I plan on working from my laptop at the firepit for at least an hour. Then after that it's staring at the beach and drinking beer. I can't think of a better way to spend a Friday at work.

I think introducing new ISD students is a great idea, but seeing as all the posts are from the usual suspects, any ideas how to get these people involved?

snehal said...

I will come and I think we will be just the usual suspects and that's just fine with me.

psamtani said...

Who are these newbies anyway? Do they have names?
