Poverty, I like the way you plan 100 days in advance. That tells me you are pretty serious. I plan on enjoying some serious beer. I like it cold.

Can't wait to see you and our buddies.

    Paul, a good lager needs about 35-40 days in the tank. It's not something you can make on short notice. Besides, my buddy still doesn't know what I've got in mind. I have to break the news to him that I'd like to have the use of one of his fermenters for that period of time. It may take a while to work it into his brewing schedule. I still can't say for sure that this will work out.

      Poverty, you are a good salesman and I am sure that your buddy will allow you to use his facility espcially if you agree to let him sell your special recipe.

      Please fill us in on what it will be. I am very anxious to know.

        So far it is looking like a really nice gathering. The rough count is 24(+) now and growing. It seems like a long way off, but these holidays will slip by quickly (as always) and the February 'Blahhhs' will be upon us. The food will be great, and the conversation even better! Start thinking of a Door-Prize to put in the drawing pot for this one. Ask any of the Crabfester's how much fun they were at the Baltimore get together!!

          Al, I was not at the Crabfest. What do you suggest. Should we bring a whole bunch of stuff?

            RE- Door Prizes

            The Baltimore thing was ok with the prizes. We made it a last minute kind of idea, so not everyone had the chance to contribute. Several people donated a bunch of prizes. Each person attending received a number, and when the number was drawn a prize from the pile of donations was awarded. There was a lot of trading around between prize-holders after the prizes were given out. It appeared to be a lot of fun. I would hope that's what could happen here, with enough advance planning is that everyone attending would bring in a prize, put it in the pile and then receive something different as an award when the numbers are called. Typical prizes seen at the Crabfest were Hot Sauces, Bottles of wine, Books by the Sterns and by the author of the Food Finds show who attended the event, a bag of 5 lbs of Hickory Chunks, some Kentucky Bourbon Samples, A can of Burgoo,.... sorry my memory runs dry... anyone else who recalls more examples , please post them.
            All in all it was a fun thing to do! The item needn't be expensive, but should represent something to do with Road-- or Regional--food.

              So you guys do GTG! (Get Together) It to far off to say for sure if we can make it or not but I am keeping a eye on this thread. Maybe there needs to be another forum page just for GTG's!

                Butch,
                Why not plan to join the fun on President's Day weekend. You won't find a friendlier group gathered for a good dinner anywhere else on the web !!

                  Thanks for the personal invite! Put us down, weather and health permitting we will be there. Another online group that I am involved with just had a GTG there this past weekend and we were not able to attend, we do have friends in the Owensboro area, maybe I can talk them into coming along if that is OK.............

                      I corresponded w/ Patrick Bosley the owner of Moonlite. He is ready for us. Looks like a respectable number of folks will be participating. I'm anxious and Mrs. Oneiron will be ready with the camera.

                        Anybody got a count of the number of folks that will show up? Last time I counted we were way ahead of last years meet.

                        Owensboro is a little more convenient for some of the midwest folks. It is about the same drive for me. As it appears at this point, I will be driving to Louisville to meet a friend that I have not seen in a long time and perhaps meet Al and Janet for some hot brown and then the following day, make my way over to Owensboro. I look forward to the long route along the river. Perhaps Al can point out the prettiest drive.

                        I look forward to Poverty Petes brew, the fellowship and the huge buffet. This time I will try the Burgoo.

                          Paul,

                          I went back thru these posts and count 25...including a couple that "may" be able to make it....and a couple who "may" bring relatives or friends. Neighbors, relatives and friends are certainly welcome ! Our celebration will begin with the arrival of Bushie and Mrs. Bushie in Louisville Thursday evening. Anyone else coming in early let us know and perhaps a Hot-Brown stop Friday would be a good thing. For you Baseball Fans a stop at the Louisville Slugger Museum is a great place too! Poverty Pete is working on the creation of a special brew for the event also.

                          We encourage everyone who would like to share a fun afternoon (or weekend!) to consider joining in the fun. We also urge everyone who would like to attend to let us know so we can ask Mr Bosley at the Moonlite BBQ to have enough seating space for all involved. Also Please bring an item of local or regional interest to contribute to the door-prize pool.

                          More info will follow as we get closer to the event date in February!

                            Al, I think the number of 25 is super. We have gone from 5 to 12 to at least 25. I think that is super. My guess is that we will far exceed 25. this place is too super to miss and is so handy for the midwest.

                            I have got my gift and I plan on adding on to it. I got some Dreamland BBQ sauce plus I plan on adding some Applebarn goodies. I am glad that Bushie and wife will be there.

                            Are we on for some hot brown in Louisville?

                              Let's fill that place to the brim!! We could have a contest to guess how many times they have to replenish the buffet for our group.

                                    Al, that would be very funny

                                    I would truly enjoy seeing your family crush the buffet

                                    I guess that we would never be welcome at the Moonlite again.

                                        I don't think we will be the top of the group this time. Only a couple of my boys show any interest in Roadfood, despite all my efforts. We MAY have a couple with us for a toal of 4 (or maybe 6) for the MAYOR'S contribution to the group. However many, it will be a good time!

                                              Bushie, I like the way you think!!!!

                                              Butch, a door prize is something regional. I am bringing some BBQ sauce from Dreamland and some other goodies from my favorite stop in Pigeon Forge from the Applebarn. Nothing expensive, just something that you enjoy and others would enjoy.

                                              Do not worry about Bushie. He always enjoy money

                                                Butch,
                                                At the Crabfest one of the guests was the author of the book "Food Finds" the theme for the TV Food Show. She donated several copies of her book. We also had some cans of the Moonlite Burgoo, some little (airline-style) bottles of Kentucky Bourbon, A small gunny sack full of Hickory Chunks,local wines from N Y and Maryland, a lot of labeled jams and jellies and hot sauces and more stuff like that. A favorite seemed to be BBQ sauce from some place noted in Roadfood. Any item of that nature that links the giver or receiver to some roadfoodie kind of theme would be appropriate.
                                                Hope that helps.

                                                  I wasn't too sure about the Monlight BBQ until I heard Katrina Vanden Heuvel (East coast effete Liberal snob, editor of The Nation), etc. ) give high praise to the place on the Colbert Report yesterday. Now I have to get to that Feb 18th meet-up.

                                                  BTW: if anyone out there has it in mind to give an Xmas present to The Mayor, Ms Vanden Heuvel is the author of ,"A Dictionary of Republicanisms"
                                                  a perfect gift for that old Neanderthal.

                                                  Cheers, John

                                                    Excellent assessment, Mr. Seafarer. (I know she's a woman after your heart, though.)

                                                    In all honesty, I hope above all that you and Mrs. Seafarer make it to this meet. I have told Mrs. Bushie (a reformed, recovering liberal) all about you, and your presence would be "icing on the cake".
