2014 Summer Roadfood Get-together

Hi guys,
With the Cincy chili crawl fast approaching, I think now is a decent time to start brainstorming about possible locations for a Roadfood get-together in the summer.  This would be similar to the Cincy trip.  We pick a city and we eat until we start sweating lol! 
 
Now I do not even know how much demand there is for a summer trip, so please post here if you would be interested.  I am still a Roadfood rookie; therefore, I am hoping someone else with take the lead on organizing this if it happens. 
 
Since it seems like a lot of us live in or near the Midwest, the cities that I think we should consider are St. Louis, Cleveland, Detroit, and Nashville.  What do you think?  I am flexible as to time and place.  Please post your ideas.
 
As for when we should do this, I was thinking June, July, or August.  September is too close to the fall bus tour. 
 
-Danny

    Danny, I like the way you think.  You have some really good suggestions there.  I know there has been talk in the past about a possible get together in Detroit, but it never materialized.

    What about somewhere in New England?  The beach, lobsters, steamers, fried clams and shrimp and scallops, chowdah...........sounds like summer to me!  Then a clam pie to top it all off!

    Kansas City is not in New England and is not close to Detroit.

    Cliff,
    I already had you and Gregg penciled in for this trip before I started this thread haha.
     
    lleechef,
    New England would be awesome, but I am worried about low turnout considering we would be all the way on the east coast.  Regardless, I would gladly go.
     
    1bbqboy,
    KC is a big yes for me!  We could eat enough delicious bbq there to induce the meat sweats

    I'm crossing my fingers for New England, and the only reason  why is because with upcoming trips, I  simply don't have the time or $$ to go elsewhere

    Danny, you're planning a summer get together and you haven't even responded to the thread concerning The Contingent's Sheboygan trip coming up in May?

    My vote is St. Louis you could start in the Hill area and go from there.

    Danny -
     
    Cubs or Sox?
     
    It will explain a lot.

    I thought a while back someone had mentioned San Diego for something like this. Any thoughts?

    JRP,
    I am a diehard White Sox fan; however, I do not despise the Cubs like most of my fellow sox fans do.  I actually hope the Cubs finally win a championship soon as long as they aren't playing my Sox in the World Series (a century long drought is just sad).
     
    Buddy,
    Believe me, I have been following the Sheboygan thread with great interest.  I would love to join you guys, but the month of May is very busy for me.  Still working on it...
     
    Ed,
    If I remember correctly, I think San Diego was being discussed as a possible candidate for the official Roadfood bus tour that occurs in the fall.  This is an unofficial Roadfood gathering we are trying to put together over the summer. 
     
    We should actually stay away from any city on the West Coast since there is a strong chance the bus tour will happen in one of those cities.  What do you guys think of Nashville as a possible location for this?  Hot and spicy chicken, meat and three's, pie (you reading this Cliff? PIE! )... 
     
    This is very difficult!  In a good way...

    Cool Danny, you almost redeemed your Bear-ness.
     
    And don't miss Smoke Day/Pie Day at my place on May 24. You can find threads from the previous parties in the Roadfood forums that will give you an idea of the event.

    I thought I covered all bases with "lobster" besides nothing beats "fresh from the shell"
     
    So come on down!

    It looks like New England is the current frontrunner.  Does anyone have a specific city in mind for this trip in the New England area?  I was in after I read buttered lobster roll lol

    Ah, well, for a proper buttered lobster roll, which originated in Milford, Connecticut at a place called Perry's on the Boston Post Road, you have to go to Connecticut.

    Clearly Rhode Island would be the obvious choice. The Center of it all. Newport, Providence, an hour from Boston, 90 minutes from Boston's North Shore..40 minutes from Mystic CT 90 minutes from New Haven, great Beaches. 
    If we time it right, we can even go to Providence's waterfire
