I call shenanigans! Of course you know you're important enough for that!

We will almost certainly be there. Small chance I'll end up being out of town that weekend...but otherwise we wouldn't miss any chance to see you two.

I'll be there. SWMBO is a maybe. She says it's not as fun when she can't drink the spoils.

Any requests from our out-of-town guests?

But she's forgetting her role as built in DD. :p

We are in and could probably carpool.

Edit: and I have roughly 5 cases to despense so I really need to get there.

Just that you mention to your SWMBO how much we've been looking forward to meeting her.

With 5 cases, are you sure you have room for carpooling?

I have wine for lost, tyger, and Ron.

What's the theme? What about food, lost? I can do meat balls again... or buffalo chicken dip. Or...?

Or Spanish wines.

You're both drinking the wrong rosé.

FOOD: please let me know what you will be bringing-

appetizers:

Main dishes:
1. Lost-ordering bbq ribs, sausages, and brisket

side dishes:
1. potato salad, cole slaw

Peace.

If we're doing BBQ food, I suggest a theme of BIG ASS REDS (not from woot). I'm also okay with Spanish wine. But we're not doing rose with BBQ, damnit!

I'll bring an appetizer. Either meatballs or buffalo chicken dip -- preference anyone?

Don't worry Kyle I will bring you a big ass red Spanish wine and bring whatever you brought last time it was good! Still bringing tri-tip I guess, and looking at the food list a couple of Lipitor's

I'm all for BIG ASS reds...but pairing depends on what others are bringing...

We can pair the roses with the appetizers, you know!

What about a nice Ca Va with the appetizers? That's a nice greeting wine. Albariño is a nice Spanish white, again, for appetizers. ddeuddeg says that we can bring a Ca va and a big Spanish red.

Great ideas but you guys don't have to lug bottles cross country, i'm pretty sure we can cover those, I know I have some Cava.

But how does that saying go "In vino veritas" that being said I would never try to deny anyone from bringing the truth

Gotta have something to drink while it's hot out and before it's BBQ time, right?

And you can probably move us into the "Yes" column. Can't miss out on a B&D visit!
