I just noticed I made an error...May 24th is a Sunday. I meant May 23rd..Saturday. Edit: NEVER MIND!!..I had a brain fart. It;s still on for Sunday the 24th.
The old pig roast parties that we held over 30 years ..it .started out as Saturday party. But had to prep the pig Friday night...so folks started arriving for that and it became a party too. And then, of course, nobody wanted to leave Saturday late, so the party bled over in to Sunday. Then it became routine that Friday was prep day all day..and Sunday was leftovers plus more food all day. So that mission creep led to people showing up Thursday, to attend the all-day Friday prep day, the Saturday main day, and Sunday...which started to involve an additional load of food and lots more alcohol..which lead to Monday being the "last" day of the party. So....by the time we called it quits in 2011, after over 30 years of having that party, we'd got where we had a Thursday through Monday party that involved 2-3 grand worth of food an alcohol..and about an equal amount spent on live bands...custom event t-shirts..etc. A mini Buck Snort.
Great times...but wore us right out. This one is going to be a "return to the roots" event. A small pig..a small circle of friends. I'm sure there will be a couple of folks with guitars there too.
