Q,

We cancelled because of the blizzard last Sunday. We also had complications due to selling our NC house and jamming everything into this one.

We decided to turn the May Supper Club Party into a Smoke Day/Pie Day event. All are welcome to join us on May 27.
 
Our home and lives have been in disarray since late-March. We accepted an offer then sold our house in North Carolina all within 2 weeks. For this we flew down to NC on zero notice to pack and make "repairs," drove a moving truck back to Wisconsin, then unloaded everything into storage and all over our home in Pewaukee. Boxes are still stacked everywhere, I think we have at least two of everything. We each also caught a nasty bug, Bobbi on the drive home, me on the following weekend. And we fly to London this week for a two week holiday. So hosting a large party with friends a week after our return should be a piece of cake pie.

The bright side is that the house is sold, households have been combined, your immune systems have been fortified, and the Old World is rewarding you with its charms!
 
If there's a Smoke Day / Pie Palooza on May 27, is there still a July 1 gathering? I think we'll actually be around for both dates.

Contingencies (& wannabees),
 
We are back in the States and now I need to live up to what I blathered before leaving for the UK. **** or Bust as they say over there.

May 27 at 2:00 marks the official start of the party. Long range weather looks good for about 30% of the day (do we need a Contingency Plan? I crack myself up.) and ChiBears15 will be here early for set-up duty.
 
Please bring a homemade side-dish to share (or adult beverages if you are culinarily impaired).
 
See you Sunday,
 
Jim
 
p.s. The reflections in that picture could be the spirits of Gregg and Danny. Look closely.

Do you have enough propane and Liquid Smoke to barbecue for a large crowd?


As of right now I plan to be there, but we're dogsitting over the weekend so Mrs. C may stay home.

Any pie requests? ? ?  You're probably too late. The Pudding Diva has assembled a list of English inspired pies and puddings.

We'll be there!  There's a rumor that stricken_detective will also be there!  As long as I go pick her up 

Ok for Chris and Carolyn to come along, Jim?

Chris & Carolyn can't make it, but the Roadhouse-mobile will be picking up Stricken after it drops off a passenger or two at Pie/BBQ Headquarters.

Specifically, we'll have ChiBears15, Mr. Maki, abe_froeman, Mrs. Roadhouse, and myself on the initial run.  After dropping some of them off, I'll pick up stricken_detective.
 
I think I'll be bringing a Supper Club style Corn Relish with crackers for an app, and an amazing Couscous side dish for mains.  Can't speak for the rest.

Are you counting chicagostyledog and Nina?  Just spoke to them several hours ago and they're planning to attend.

That cannot be right. The Bear-thing will be having pre-breakfast at North Avenue Grille, breakfast at Story Hill BKC, pre-brunch at Blues Egg, and brunch at Senor Tomas, before arriving early to sit in the highchair in front of the My Pillow Guy.

Slight change of plans south of Russell Road.  I've booted my own flesh and blood from our car so LAmuse Bouche can join us for Smoke/Pie Day.  abe_froeman and Mr. Maki will now travel on their own and pick up stricken_detective.  We'll have ChiBears15 and LAmuse Bouche in our car, so make the head count 21.

Any olive allergies I need to know about before I make my salad?

I'll make guacamole and I'll bring chips!

You'll be making the guacamole fresh on site, of course.
 
I haven't figured out what we're bringing yet.  Since we're going to the Brewers-Mets game later today, maybe it'll be the severed head of Mr. Met.  On a plate.

Brad,
 
Besides the guacamole, couscous side dish, and the salad; coleslaw, a Mexican corn salad, and bbq beans will be served. Plus assorted meats and puddings.

I'm toying with the idea of chiltomate.  Especially since Abe's got the chips covered.

We'll probably bring something Middle Eastern like Baba Ghanouj and/or Muhammara.... and crackers/veggies.
 
Edit: Also, the Spouse of Quijote is bringing a Mushroom-Quinoa Salad.

Last time I spoke with CSD, I believe he said he'd be bringing coleslaw.
