View Full Version : NEXT Year!

Tomorrow afternoon I'm heading down to King City for the annual Memorial Day Weekend bash our family has every year--100 or so folks gather to eat and drink for the better part of 4 days...hey, what can I say, life is good!

And while my frosh attempt at JAO is clear as a bell it tastes harsh to me so I want to let it age a bit before I offer it to folks. So no mead this year. The youths have been bringing various types of drink to pass around and sample on Saturday night and I was hoping to have the JAO for that, but I'd rather wait until it totally rocks. I don't want to keep someone from liking it on first taste.

But NEXT year? We're having some mead at our party.

Anyone in the vicinity this weekend, especially the glutfest on Sunday night (abalone, steak, chicken, sausage...) you're welcome to come join us.

I suddenly wish I lived in CA. Sounds like a great time. We do a big get together like this every year for the 4th of July. We have a big fish fry, horseshoe and cribbage tournies, drink a ton, and play with explosives.

Your 4-day event sounds like it tops ours through. Abalone? That's some classy partying! ;D

Thanks for the invite! But unfortunately except for the conference and two telecons that have been scheduled for me to fill my "spare" time tomorrow, I'll instead be driving east like a maniac beginning tomorrow evening, to try to get back to Denver before Saturday morning.

This trip has sucked.... :mad:

That's part of the state I've never been to. Sounds fun! I'll be hanging out with my parents up here though, it's graduation weekend.
