FamiGrille 1.0 this Saturday! (5/5)
« on: May 02, 2012, 11:35:32 PM »
Yes, I know it's Cinco de Mayo... but to prepare yourself for some late-night mexi-madness why not swing by the lab Saturday and have a burger, hot dog or some other grilled goodness?


By pure coincidence this Saturday is also an open maker day AND a working session for the power wheels racer! Who knew?


So, come out, bring some munchies, chip in on a project and kick off your Cinco de Mayo celebration right!


Here's what I'm doing:
I'll bring my grill, hamburgers, cheese and buns and some basic toppings. I will also man the grill and slave over your food all afternoon.. or until I'm tired of it...


Here's what you can do:
1) let me know if you' can bring some other kind of food. Hotdogs, brats, chicken, veggie patties, whatever... If it cooks well on an open grill, go for it!
2) Bring sides...whatever you like.. chips, potato salad, baked beans, dessert. You know, normal stuff.
3) Help with a project! The lab needs cool stuff for the OMMF. Science needs help on his strandbeest, the power racer is still in progress and we need to get the lab ready to host the after party! There's lots to do and not a lot of time to do it.


Come for the free food, stay for the forced labor!


So.. Who's in?!? Reply here if you're going to make it so I have an idea of how much food to bring.

Very likely in (checking for family schedule conflicts...) and thanks for setting it up!


Should we just go buy a real damn fridge on Saturday off craigslist? :)

This weekend is the first of two family commencement weekends, but I'll try to make it out! :)

Yes please.  A truck to haul it in is the big impediment.  I can lift heavy things if asked nicely.  Let's make it happen! 8)

Just to clarify, I am planning this as a lunch cookout. it is on the calendar as starting at noon. My idea was to try bribing people to come out to the lab with food and help with the do-day (which also starts at noon). But if more people can make it to an evening event I can always move it.

I totally missed that and was assuming dinner. Oops :)  I'm happy with either!

Thank you for grilling, esp. my scary faux sausage.

It was an awesome day!

I got to teach another person to use the laser cutter, and there was good food :).

I'm down for another cookout. I would need to know how many people to expect though. I had way too much stuff last week.
