Default Cookout Saturday 8/5 (Allendale/Westside)

To all of our Westside friends here, Kara & I sent the e-mail below to friends & family a couple days ago. Most everyone who would be interested in coming already knows where we live; if you don't have our address/phone # for whatever reason, let me know. BTW, this isn't a Jeepers-exclusive party; there will be lots of friends, family & co-workers there, too. However, maybe one of them will drive a Hummer, and you can heckle them while you enjoy some beer & burgers. :tonka:

Ideally, I'd like to find some sort of band to play. Something acoustic, or an otherwise family-friendly group would be great (INTERPETATION: Kids will be present at the cookout). I like groups like Disturbed and Three Days Grace, but I'm guessing that type of music wouldn't be the ideal, laid-back cookout atmosphere. If you guys have any suggestions or know anyone who'd be interested in playing, let me know.

Anyway, below is the cut-'n-paste info from the e-mail we sent out. Let me know if anyone's interested in coming out.

Thanks,
Craig

Hi guys -

We hope this e-mail finds you all happy and healthy. Guess what? After several years of thinking about it, talking about it, and generally procrastinating, we finally decided to throw a big cookout for our friends & family. We're officially dubbing this a "Before Home Improvements" party, as our house has some really stylish (tongue-in-cheek) wallpaper and other interior decor. It'll be an outdoor party, but you're welcome to a tour through wallpaper hell, too. ; ) Of course, this means we'll eventually have an "After" party, as well. "Party on, Wayne."..."Party on, Garth."

There will be more info to come via e-mail fairly shortly, but we just wanted to send a quick note so everyone can get the date in their calendars.

When:
Saturday, August 5 @ 3:00pm - ???

Where:
Craig & Kara's (Mira & Maeve, too)

What to bring:
  • Yourself, spouse/significant other, kids
  • Dish to pass
  • Drinks of your choice (we'll be providing pop & beer)
  • Bocce ball set (we don't have one, but would love to play) or other lawn games
  • Lawn chairs

We'll provide burgers & dogs to cook on the grill. If you want some other slab 'o meat, bring it along and we'll cook it. : )

We have plenty of room for tents, so bring a tent & some sleeping bags if you want to camp out overnight. : )

Please RSVP via e-mail or phone by Friday, July 21st. Thanks, and we hope to see you here!

Thanks,
Craig, Kara, Mira & Maeve

Oh, Bubba MUST make it. That would be so perfect for this cookout, John. What are the chances of being able to bring it up?

Thanks,
Craig

For those who have RSVP'd, it looks like there are going to be about 60 people attending our cookout. I just ordered 20 lbs. of burger, 25 dogs, and a 1/2 barrel of Michelob Light on Friday. We'll see you there.
