USS Macchiato Party!  
Attention crew!

Okay, I admit... I've been slacking. Well, I've been out of town. And busy. And getting set up with a new job. And you know... shit like that. But it's been TOO LONG since the last voyage of the USS Macchiato. We need to remedy this!

I'm going to be out of town until the 7th of July, so we're looking ahead at the 14th and 21st of July for a party. Also, mizuno_caitlin will be in town! That's right, our First Officer is back! Therefore, a party MUST happen.

I now have a large barbecue grill, and would like to host this party at my house. There shall be grilling, a fire pit, s'mores, and then movies or episodes downstairs in the Geek Cave. Also, I might have a shiny new TV by then, for our viewing pleasure.

I'd like the barbecue to be a semi-pot-luck. I'll provide certain essentials for the barbecue, but it's expensive to pull together a whole grilling feast. So that I can plan what needs to be bought, please let me know what you are willing to contribute to the spread. Salads? Condiments? Stuff to be grilled? Desserts? Drinks? Remember that you can bring raw items that I can throw on the grill, too. So, in a comment below, let me know if you're able to bring something, and what you'd be willing to bring. I'll plan my purchases to fill in what other people aren't able to bring.

But before we do anything else, we need to decide on a date. So... when will it be?

Hailing frequencies open!

I am open to whatever! As for items to bring, I could bring brats and buns or a salad or dessert--whatever we need! Kind of excited about hanging with everyone.

The 14th is best for me, but I could figure something out for the 22nd if it goes that way. I have commitments on the 15th & 21st.

I can help out with something (chicken, burgers, brats whatever) for the grill. I can also do some fruit & pitas.

I miss you Captain!!!!!

I actually have something going on on the 14th. which means that's the only day that's no good for me. Of course, the event is not being planned around me.

And Sundays are always good. :)

If it's any day other than the 14th, I'll bring.. um. Fresh Fruit!

I definitely can't make the 14th, and the 15th is God Auction!

Yeah, let's not do it on God Auction day. The 21st would be optimal for me as I can bring Da Honey along for inspection to meet the gang that weekend.

I know I have a kick-ass side dish to bring which I can't think of at the moment 'cause I'm so frikkin' tired. And raw stuff to put on the grill. Hmmm, and maybe a cobbler since it's summer and hot weather screams for peach or cherry cobbler.

I'll see if my restaurant license for the coffee shop will actually let me buy some steaks and the like, you can get stuff dirt cheap with this thing.

I could also do the 28th if the 21st ends up sucking. :)
