    If you plan on having the tasting mid September, or anytime after that me and Jo would love to get together for a New Orleans tasting. We will be moving back to the city at the beginning of September, and love going to tastings and sharing beers.

    Moving to San Diego at the end of the month, and I have too many beers and not enough space. So, if it's before then I would definitely be interested.

    I'm in but I don't have anything too interesting, unless you count the homebrew.

    Homebrew is always interesting. And it looks like we secured a location with NOLA Brewing. We just need to figure out a date.

    I spoke to Buck and he said Sept 15th is fine. Is a 630pm start time okay?

    I'm announcing it on FB for those people who don't come to BA very much. I am not sure about announcing the location on there though. I kind of want to keep out the riff raff who just want free beer out of the event. Maybe do a password kind of like a speakeasy. Am I being an ass here?
     
  20. avenuepub

    avenuepub Apr 23, 2009 Louisiana

    Don't know the password idea will work if you post it publically. What about asking people to say what they are brining in advance?

    Yeah I just want something in place. We have too many instances where people just bring nothing and that isn't fair to the rest of us.
     
  22. tweidman420

    tweidman420 Jul 30, 2005 Louisiana

    Just be coy about it. Announce when, but don't say where. Maybe say for more details go to BeerAdvocate dot com. If they're in the know, they'll know how to find out, or they should know someone who knows. We can make it like one of those secret New York clubs with no signs and an entrance in a back alley.

    Depending on how determined you are you could put a volunteer at the door who wristbands those who come in with beer. You could allow a pass for food too for those that don't have a cellar if you wanted to.

    I was thinking about bringing a bottle of Life and Limb 2 that I've had in my cellar for about a year now. Also have some Surly stuff.

    Dogfish Head various bottles

    Would everyone be okay with a possible date switch to Sept 22nd? If not thats fine. I would still have to run it by NOLA Brewing anyways.

    Either date would be good with us.

    Anyone can tag along. Especially if they are BA members. We also need to discuss food options. We MAY have some people willing to cook but I don't want them doing it for free. Would people be willing to pay an entrance fee? Discuss.
     
  33. Beerbuddha

    Beerbuddha Feb 17, 2007 Florida

    Okay NOLA Brewing is actually happier with the 22nd than the 15th so let's make it official. Date changes to September 22nd.

    I might be able to talk JoEllen into making her famous "among tasting's we have brought it to" Bourbon Bacon Sweet Potato Cheese Cake and candied bacon. If anyone would be interested in something like that.

    The J'anitas crew had shown interest in cooking but I don't want them to not make any money. We COULD do a potluck style maybe

    You definitely don't want me trying to cook something... But, I would be down for contributing for compensation for those that would. If there is a catering company that does cheese, breads, fruits, fingerfoods, ect., I'd also be down for contributing to that.

    PS: What time of day would this be happening?
     
  37. tweidman420

    tweidman420 Jul 30, 2005 Louisiana

    22nd is good with me....that bacon concoction looks awesome, too

    I'm also down to pay for or contribute food.
     
  38. Beerbuddha

    Awesome. Okay so we have a date of September 22nd start time at 6pm. NOLA Brewing.

    It appears that we may have some BBQ food truck style peeps out there. Would people feel comfortable paying an "entrance" fee to get in which would go straight to pay for the food? Any other ideas?
