That day works for Kim & me.

Right now, all I have a coffee porter w/ a hint of habanero on tap. It's pretty mediocre (so not competition worthy), but I'll bring some to sample. I'm hoping to brew this weekend. If it's any good, I'll enter it.

Be careful... he'll say yes, start it and then make you finish it.

10/3???? I am pretty sure I'll be back from the real Octoberfest (Munich), Prague and Amsterdam trip...(last stop is Amsterdam...so..I HOPE I find my way to the plane).

IF I make it back...I'll bring the brown ale I brewed 2 weeks ago.

What are we looking at...10-11ish till o-dark-thirty?

Don't sell yourself short, Hippie! I fully expect you to win, place or show in the pig eating. I'll most likely be your chief competition. I should probably put in a few more workouts, get some more training in. Once I get my smoker back from Worcester I'll start logging the miles. It's a tough job but I'm up to it.

I don't know if I'm going to brew, mostly just because at this point I'm just looking for an easy, no stress party. (Other than cooking a whole hog for a whole bunch of folks.) But if anyone else wants to they are certainly welcome. And I could probably be talked into it, but at this point I'm just thinking I'll handle the cooking, organize the competition and that will keep me busy enough. If anyone wants to use my keggles and save themselves the bother of hauling all of their gear here they are welcome to do so.

Like the last few parties, come anytime after noon, leave whenever you must. Last call will be when the very first one of the following occurs:

1. We run out of beer/wine/food. (Highly unlikely.)

2. The cops come and shut us down. (Unlikely, I have cool neighbors, some of whom are town cops who will probably all be there.)

3. Babalu breaks out his Dungeons and Dragons dice.

4. The third fistfight breaks out. (Lets face it, it ain't a party without at least one fistfight, the second one is generally just youthfull exuberence so that don't hardly count. But if we get to three things are getting out of hand and I'll pull the plug. Unless its between chicks. Nuff said.

5. Hippie decides to go skinnydipping in the goldfish pond. (Of course, that will clear out the place PDQ and I won't have to do a thing.)

6. Any talk about sacrificing a virgin (i.e. Yeager) on the bonfire. (Ok, I might just let that one go.)

-Will

PS - Do you need any help with anything? Need any supplies? (cups, forks plates etc)?

That's a great idea, Will. Thanks!
