Event Description

Join us in the beautiful Napa Valley at Napa Bothe State Park for a celebration of the full moon. We'll enjoy pre-prandials and Thanksgiving-style fare at the Saturday night potluck dinner. This park does not take reservations after November 1 and is usually half-empty this time of year. If we're lucky, Joel will bring the deep-fryer for the turkey and JLT will bring the Tent of Doom to ward off the chill. Stop at the Bale Grist Mill next door and pick up some organic flour. see:http://www.parks.ca.gov/?page_id=482

In addition to the turkey, I am going to try out my new Coleman propane-powered slow cooker! What to make?

Hooray for Joel! Turkey fryer extraordinaire!

I've got to find the brine-injection recipe this time around.

I'm hearing rumors that there may be "the Tent of Doom" and the "Bigger Tent of Doom" available at this GTG. So, if the weather looks cold or wet, we'll have space in which to gather comfortably.

'Tis true. The tent of doom will be there if the weather is inclement. If more people confirm, I'll bring the extension as well, to put about 450 square feet under canvas if need be. As for Peter, I don't know if he's made the poles for his yet, but we shouldn't need it.

I'll be bringing my usual boring three-rice dish.

Awesome on the tent, John! I'll be sure to enjoy your three-rice dish.

I don't think we'll make it to this one either, but maybe? I'm going to miss the Tent O' Doom AND The Dang Big Tent O' Doom!

Well, we're hoping Mike pulls through his latest batch 'o' surgery at about that time. Keep us posted. Come for the day!

Sorry to hear you won't be able to make the NapaFest this year. I'll make sure we gobble up some of the bird for ye!

The tent poles are currently in progress. I'll keep you updated.

Melissa - food. What needs to be brought. I'm up for cooking anything.
