Here are all the juicy details, mostly provided by (and written by) Chris: It will be on Saturday July 31st starting at about 2:00pm, but people can show up anytime before and after that time too. We will be having a whole bunch of hamburgers, hot dogs, sausage, chicken and boca burgers for those who are vegetarians. I will also have many snacks foods (chips and dip, corn chips and salsa, cheese curls, popcorn, etc.). Cheese-crackers & pepperoni also. We will also hopefully have many sides dishes like potato salad , macaroni salad, garden salad, etc. If a game is on the T.V. it will be on so you won't miss anything. If any kids should be in attendance, we will have goodie bags with all sorts of little toys and items to keep them busy and freeze pops are never in short supply. If anyone is interested, please let us know by July 29th, so I know how many of you are coming and if you will be bringing a guest. I don't have a lot of parking on the street so try and carpool if possible, motorcycles are always welcome and encouraged. If you get hungry again and you see no food ready just ask we will make more. The party does not stop until it stops. One year a party here went until 4:00 a.m. It is not required but if you like to bring something to add to the cookout that is fine. I usually just tell everyone to bring themselves. But if you do bring something it will be greatly appreciated. I live in Milford which is about 45-60 minutes southwest of Boston. I will supply directions later, and if you cannot get a ride, you can take the T Commuter Rail from South Station to Forge Park Station in Franklin. I live 10-15 minutes by car and we can pick up people. So I know I will see many of you but please post here or PM me so I know who is attending. And also what you might be bringing with you so I don?t have too much of something. Roseanna's addition: A commuter rail schedule for the Franklin line can be found [link=http://www.mbta.com/traveling_t/pdf/commuterrail/Franklinweekend.pdf]here[/link]. Like Chris said, we can pick you up at the train station. The commuter rail is very easy to use if you've never used it before. If you have any questions about it, you can post here or PM me or Chris. You know you want to come! It'll be a lot of fun. I'm sure we can break out a Star Wars game or two if people are interested. I'm always out for Trivial Pursuit revenge...grrr... That's all! Post post post!
