I was looking for the RL Meetups forum, but in this new format my Forum-Fu has failed me, so I decided to post this on the Khyber Server forums...since the guilty parties in this post all play on Khyber. Enjoy!


As many know, my family hosts an end of May party at the Memphis In May Sunset Symphony which is catered with an open bar and is very, very fun. What folks don't know is that this year was the first year I decided to see if we could extend the fun a little bit by inviting folks to come for BBQ Fest the weekend before the Sunset Symphony as well.

My call for houseguests did not go unanswered and we had a blast. I can confirm that enough food was eaten for several people...and it was all good...and several good cigars were smoked, beers quaffed and mead guzzled.

Next weekend should be off the hook as there will be seven (?) folks coming in for the party to partake in the festivities.

But, don't despair, even though I'm an incredible idiot, I did take a few photos of the guilty parties for this past weekend, and without further ado, here they are!

First up is a picture of myself, eating ribs from the catering truck of Central BBQ, one of the best of the best in Memphis:

Next is a new player, Dibujo, who is actually staying with me and my wife for a time until she gets her **** together.

Now for the good stuff...my guildie, Film, and an insanely good Maple Bacon Sundae!

And an honorary Loreseeker, and a good friend/questing buddy since we first met during Open Beta....holy moly that is a long time ago!...the one, the only DRAZ!

*yes the Rhinestone Cowgirl pink banner behind him was intentional!

And, lastly, a pic of Film and Draz and The Big Green Egg display.

*the funniest thing about this picture is that it was taken just moments after I got off the phone with Beerman/Disavowed while we were planning our strategy for the upcoming mayhem.

I'd like to thank these fine folks for coming down to visit me during BBQ Fest, and let me tell you all we had a great time. I had a blast, and know the others did as well. Now, it's time to let the BBQ settle a bit, let the competitors strike their tents and Tom Lee Park to get cleaned up a bit and have the big soundstage redecorated and the other amenities placed for the Memphis In May Sunset Symphony next weekend, where, I've already been advised, my liver will be put through the paces.

More pics next weekend y'all!!!!
