My Crystal CRT tells me that there will be another Wiki BBQ in the year 2009 and the month of October and the date of 25 which happens to be a Sun Day. The gathering will commence three hours after the sun peaks and conclude after the Sun returns to the Earth. Or there abouts. It will be held in the usual secret location. It will be a Pot Luck. No gold is required for presence (but edibles are encouraged).

My glowing portal shows:

  • Wizards in strange attire
  • Slaughtered animal guts on a sacrificial fire
  • Bottles of liquids
  • Potions to quaff
  • Bags and bowls of vegetable matter
  • Sacrificial fires with glowing coals and belching smoke

Report from the BBQ

The 'glowing portal' was not particularly accurate. There were potions quaffed, but not enough people attended to make it worth starting a sacrificial fire. There was pumpkin custard (vegetable matter), and grapes & potato curry were eaten. Otherwise, mostly a bust. —DougWalter

Seven people showed up in total. One person, named "Shawn", came by and passed out advertisements to everyone (it was for a competitive website), took a beer and immediately left. Redux of "steal a hotdog" incident. Critical mass wasn't achieved to warrant starting a fire. Anyone need a bag of briquettes (and a lot of food)? Some (presumably UCD students) were playing on the grass nearby. When they heard we were DavisWiki enthusiasts, several of them highly praised the Wiki and told anecdotes of how they used it all the time (including that morning). A woman walked her dog past and even knew about the Wiki BBQ. Seems everyone (almost) knows and loves our Wiki. While turnout was much less than I expected, there was beautiful weather, plenty of good food, and good people (quality, not quantity). —SteveDavison

2009-09-21 14:58:06   Considering that a lot of people have been receiving physical threats lately...should this maybe be planned behind the scenes to avoid a potential incident? —OliviaY

The people making a scene on here are nothing more than crazed pranksters looking for attention. I wouldn't worry about it. —PhilipNeustrom

I wish this thing had a "like" button like facebook! — MasonMurray

Shadows disappear when you shine light on them. —SteveDavison

2009-09-21 16:31:00   I'm interested. I will bring a couple sodas if I am available to attend. —MasonMurray

2009-09-21 17:03:14   we need to OMGWTF the name here pretty soon, it would appear that some folks are down to stroll to this —StevenDaubert

2009-09-21 20:30:56   I wonder if that same homeless looking guy will come by again and steal a hotdog. Good times. —SunjeetBaadkar

2009-09-21 23:39:32   I may or may not be there, if I'm anywhere at all. One never knows... —IDoNotExist

2009-10-14 19:58:37   soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo when is this going down? —StevenDaubert

2009-10-15 13:10:12   How about the 25? —OliviaY

  • As somebody who can't make it any day, I will firmly support the first suggested date. ;) -jw

2009-10-15 15:04:45   I am available the 25th. —MasonMurray

2009-10-15 17:15:40   I will come unless I don't. You may not be able to tell the difference. —IDoNotExist

2009-10-15 17:51:20   I be bringing a cornucopia of edibles, some sweet and some not so sweet. Some chared coals too. —SteveDavison

2009-10-15 19:39:14   I should be game

glad we could kick start this puppy again, it was stagnating —StevenDaubert

2009-10-15 22:32:15   The gathering will commence three hours after the sun peaks

  • a.k.a. 4:23 PM PDT, just so everyone knows. —BrentLaabs

2009-10-21 00:47:16   Pumpkin Praline Cheesecake? No one is allergic to nuts right? Also *bump* —OliviaY

2009-10-23 17:28:06   Hey, y'all should come by the Film Fest afterwards! It's going to be great! 7pm at Davis High School. More info on the events page

  • I think you've confused the dates. The film fest is Saturday, the BBQ is Sunday.

2009-10-25 14:31:20   I'm planning to head over once the pumpkin custard comes out of the oven & cools enough for transport. I'll also bring quaffables to share. —DougWalter

2009-10-25 16:24:50   nuuuuuuuuu can't make it ='(StevenDaubert

2009-10-25 16:31:57   I might be there now. Or I might not be... —IDoNotExist

2009-10-25 17:01:26   Schroedinger says you are not. —JasonAller

2009-10-26 06:52:25   Perhaps not needing a decoder card to figure out when it was actually happening would have been nice :-) Or scheduling it just before midterms might have been a barrier. —RyanMikulovsky

2009-10-26 08:03:34   Yet another BBQ gone by and yet another BBQ I failed to make it to. Sigh... —WesHardaker

2009-10-26 10:56:27   Had a family emergency and had to miss out. Very sad. —OliviaY

2009-10-26 15:05:19   Wha??? I missed it:( —Aaron.Curtin
