Now we just need a date. Which means I'm gonna start kicking you all again to figure it out The second weekends of Oct and Nov are out as I'm doing the DC and Vegas things then. The rest of September is also out as my weekends are now committed to working at the Ren Faire (come visit!) So start talking dates! Or at least months...


Last two weekends of October are no good for me. Wedding and Halloween respectively.

No problem... just remembered I've got a prior commitment on 10/25, too. So 10/4, 10/18, 11/8, 11/29, 12/6 for options?

Wait, by last two weekends, do you mean 10/18 and 10/25, or 10/25 and 11/1?

10/25 and 11/1. Ooops...I just glanced at the calendar quickly and saw 31 at the bottom right, but didn't look close enough to see it was Friday.

So is that whole weekend out for you, or is there still a possibility that 11/1 could be OK? Cuz, y'know, that'd be kinda cool. Halloween, weird foods, fangs...

That is going to be one of those weekends that I won't know until a day or two beforehand. Tradition for me is to throw the "Last Halloween Party of the Year" the Saturday after Halloween. Since I don't have my own house now I will have to wait and see if someone else is going to host. Unfortunately with my friends the decision to host could come on Friday.

11/29 is no good... That's the Saturday after Thanksgiving.

10/4 or 11/8 work best for me.

Ack. Hey guys, I'm dumb. Just double checked my calendar last night and realized I already have plans on 11/8. So y'all can still get together without me somewhere if you want, or we can pick a different date

Sorry!

Joe and I are available in Ocbtober except for the first Saturday and the 25th. November is still open, apart from Thanksgiving weekend. Will there be 'normal' food as a backup for picky people? I can volunteer to bring some.

Sure, if you want to bring anything, feel free The weird food thing might not stick, depending on cost prohibitions... the snake, unfortunately, is already out. I'm not paying $66 for a rattlesnake, as intriguing as it sounds.

Sounds like a plan-- did you want us to sign up for one or two exotic foods each? Granted rattlesnake is pricey but if we each say what random meat or dish we can bring that would help.... yeah/nope?

That would help a LOT. I know Hiller's sells weird stuff in their "game locker", if you can't find it in any other store. There's also an online store I need to check and see about getting stuff delivered. If we go the online site route, if someone wants to help pitch in on that one, you're welcome to.

You can also group up and get that snake

Would it be possible for you to pick something up for me and I pay you when I get there? Not much in the way of weird food by me.

$66. For a whole rattlesnake. like 3lbs of snake. If you two both want in, I'll take a third so it'd be $22 each.

And, like, I'm totally shocked... you checked the thread without me having to kick you in the email

*GASP* *SHOCK* Hm, I think I have room in the freezer for the snake... probably go out and buy it soon just so no one else gets it. Tee hee. Snake! If I knew like fer sure that I could get the recent Gewurtz from TMR for this, I'd say that would probably go. But instead, I'm slotting the SB Semillon for it.

Wait. Tommy's coming. Duh. Get my Gewurtz from TMR and bring it.

John (i.e. the old man) and I will go in together for something... not sure what yet, but we'll take a look at some options and let you know.

Hmm... Tommy, you do tattooing, right? Cause I've been wanting to get my first ink...

He's a piercer, actually. Though he could tattoo you a simple cross or a T or a stick figure Though he could probably be of assistance in helping you decide what to do and how and where.
