Title: Help Sarah forget Vortex BBQ...July 19th...City Park
Post by: ianacole on June 20, 2005, 11:32:28 AM
Update:  7 July 2005, 12:48 PM

We are picking up the permit today.  Here is a map showing where the picnic area is that we are reserving:

(http://www.rmcb5.com/albums/ianacole/July19BBQMap.jpg)

There is plenty of parking around the horn, and a large play area for kids about 50 yards to the south (I will have my two boys).  There is also horseshoe pits and tennis courts to the west across the street (if someone has some horseshoes they could bring that would be awesome!).  Please let me know if you have any questions or need additional directions.


Update:  26 June 2005, 8:42 PM

We've set the date at Tuesday, July 19th, 7:30pm at City Park (I will post a map with the specific location in the park once I get the permit).

List of who's coming and what they're bringing:

1.  Ian - Grill, BBQ implements, Brats
2.  JR (jayryan) - Chocolate Chip cookies, plates, plasticware
3.  Hotani - guac and corn cheeps. and beer. and cups.
4.  Andrew (coveredbytheblood) - Soda
5.  Alan (aowhaus) - Gourmet Burgers (still yum!)
6.  Al (TurboDub) - goodies!
7.  Ben (BHase) - 2 6-packs of quality German beer.
8.  Sarah (337dub) - Cheesecake
9.  Andrew (34k) - salads, pasa, potato, greek medley sorta deli type things as well as additional beers.
10.  Dave (StarlightB5) - probably beer
11.  Jonathon (PasSoup) - some soda, beer, cookies, and a 4 1/2 year old.
12.
13.




Update:  22 June 2005, 1:52 PM

I just got off the phone with Denver Parks and Rec.  They do not issue permits for Sundays; it's first come, first served.  If we want to do something on Monday or Tuesday, we would need a permit which runs $42.  This would apply to City Park, Ruby Hill Park, or any other Denver Park.  We can still consider Cherry Creek or Chatfield State Rec Areas.

Rules for alcohol at Denver City parks:
-No underaged drinking (so say the rules)
-No hard liquor
-Beer and Wine are acceptable

Any other thoughts on locations?

(I am waiting a call back from the Southwest Denver Parks and Rec to verify they have the same requirements for permits.)

Update: 22 June 2005, 9:40 AM

It seems that City Park is a popular location, so we'll set the location there.  I will contact the Denver Parks and Rec to find out if we need to reserve anything and the rules about alcohol and whatnot.  The date is still open.  I'd prefer a Sunday, myself, but am open for any other day of the week.  If we're going to do a Sunday, I'd recommend starting at 3:30 or 4pm.  If we're going to meet on a Monday or Tuesday, I'd recommend starting at 6:30 or 7pm

--Ian

Update: 20 June 2005, 6:25 PM

So far, this is what I'm gleening from the feedback:

Day of the Week (options):
--Sunday
--Monday
--Tuesday

Time of Day:
--If it's weeknight, after 6pm

Location:
--really cool big park by Overland HS on Peoria

Specific Date:
--Given the recommendations above, I recommend July 17th, 18th, or 19th

 Keep the feedback coming.  I will post updates at the top of this post.

Okay, I'll take on the coordination of this, but I'll always welcome help.  So, I have a few points we need to iron out.  I don't know if I can do multiple polls in one thread, so I'm just going to ask the questions.  Please respond in kind.

1.  What day of the week would you prefer?

2.  What time of day would you prefer?

3.  What park/resevoir/other location would you prefer?

4.  When, if you have a specific date, would you prefer?  Otherwise, generally when would you prefer (i.e. latter half of July)?

I will supply the BBQ (with charcoal and fluid and stuff), be the cook, and provide brats.  Will others be willing to step up and chip in either food or beverage (or cash for)?

Ian

I do't really care.  If at night I should be there... If during the day it might be hard for me to make it


If it is going to be a weekday.   I can only make Mondays and Tuesdays.

Post by: sediahaka on June 20, 2005, 11:55:36 AM
I'm ok with any day.  After five on weekdays.  Anytime in July except the last week.  I'll bring the pop-cicles and some guac...I make good guac almost as good as my cheese cake...hmmm maybe I should bring that too.  Oh and any park thing works for me.  This will be soo much fun!!!! :D

Oh JR, what are the rules about beer and such at that park?
Title: Help Sarah forget Vortex BBQ...July 19th...City Park
Post by: ianacole on June 20, 2005, 11:59:51 AM
My initial thoughts are Thursday, July 21st, at 7pm.  JR, I'm not familiar with where that park is...can you give me some more location details and I'll drive by tonight and see if we have to reserve space or something.

Thanks,

Ian

P.S.  Sarah, cheesecake is almost always a good thing :lol:

1- Just about any day would work, Fridays are a little sketchy sometimes...
2- 18:00 or later if during the week - anytime on weekends
3- whatever you guys think. Let us know about the alcohol and/or glass restrictions at whatever park or facility we end up going to so we can bring non-alky stuff or plastic instead.
4- I'm leaving town the last weekend in July for a week, so anytime before that would be lovely.

I don't object to the 20th, but if you wanted to stick to Tuesday, the 19th is fine with me.  So is the park over by Overland HS, even though I will admit that Clement Park would've been a nice short ride for me.  We'd need to find out what the situation is with providing alcohol, as well.

And as soon as I figure out where Overland HS is, and the park is, I'll swing by and see if I can find a number for the local Parks and Rec.

Lalala...I'm back. Okay...OHS is two blocks north of Iliff on Peoria. The park is one block north of that. I don't remember the name of it though. It is in Aurora and not the most centrally located facility but easy to get to.

IIRC, there was an April Pre-DZ BBQ held at this park ('03??) I could have my events mixed up, but I think this is the one.

This was different then.

Would that be Utah Park (small lake in the middle)?  It's at Jewell and Peoria.

I've seen one vote specifying Tuesday the 19th (which has been the only date requested so far)...anyone esle?

I've added an update to the top post.

I've said the 19th is fine with me. If that suits everyone else, then I vote for the 19th as well.

And as for the $42 permit...if we want to do City Park, we could certainly get together that sort of funding.  I mean, just think that if 7 people come, everybody only pays $6. Not too bad. And it is central, so people who live further up north might not be scared off by the drive.  Especially if we're doing 6:30 and people might have to fight rush hour(s).

To keep this going, let's set the date at July 19th, Tuesday, at 7:30pm, at City Park.  I will drive by and find a decent spot, then pick up the permit.  I will also start a list of who is coming and what if they're bringing something at the top of this post.

I'll only bring Yuki along if there are other dogs for her to play with -- she gets really restless and annoying when she's bored, and she'll probably go after the ducks and geese nearby.

Also, are we also picnicing near our rides?
I'm debating to take my scooter or my car.

I'm bringing homemade gormet burgers for everyone instead of the satay -- I have a ton of ground meat I need to use up and I don't have the time to prep a lot of little skewers.
Hope that's okay, since I noticed that no one is bringing any meat.

Just made 13 half-pound burger patties, hope that's enough.

Yep, bring beer brats...boiling at this very moment.  Dave's suspension took a little longer than expected (thanks for the suggestions JR, worked like a charm).

YAWN!!!  Goodmorning.  I plan on coming and bringing Megan with me.  Is there anything else that needs to be brought?  

I cannot believe Ian was boiling the brat's at midnight.  I am still a walking zombie!  I want to thank Ian very much for helping me with the suspension.  A "little" longer was an understatement!!!  But as crazy as it was, Carla will like it.  I think I will tell her today about the 20" spinners!  :D

I may be late and i apologize but there probably wont be cheese cake.  Last night my 14year old dog has a seizure.  She has recently had her ear canal removed because of a tumor.  the tumor has spread into her brain and we have to put her to sleep today.  I'm not sure if I will be able to make it at all, but i will try my hardest.  thank you guys for putting this on it really does mean a lot to me how much you guys care.

I completely sympathize; we had to put our 13 year old cat to sleep yesterday morning.  I'm very sorry for your loss.

Sorry to hear about your poochie Sarah, that sucks. Mine doggie died when I was in college, but I've got two more now, one of which will be with me tonight :D

So, cookies are coming, I may be a little late depending on how long I stay today. I came in a little later than usual because I was installing a new headunit.

Ian and Dave, so my suggestions actually worked? It was only supposed to take me a couple hours to do the strut change and needless to say, Randy and I went through a few beers. Glad you got it all on though.

You could go straight up Colorado (http://maps.google.com/maps?q=denver,+co&ll=39.720260,-104.941578&spn=0.096084,0.167645&hl=en), then left on 23rd into the park.
Title: Help Sarah forget Vortex BBQ...July 19th...City Park
Post by: ianacole on July 19, 2005, 01:07:32 PM
I'd take 25 to Colorado.  Head north to 17th.  Head west to York (western edge of the park, where 17th west bound turns into 18th).  Turn right on York.  Head north to 23rd.  There will be a turn in into the park (see the map) about half a block down on the right.

How late do you guys think you'll be at the park? I will be at my old house tonight doing some cleaning and watering so when I get done I may try and swing by. Of course this will probably be 8ish or so.

My step-dad works at the Denver Zoo, and he just informed me that it used to be a city ordinance that you could not bring beer in bottles to the park.  He said he doesn't know if it is still that way.  Anybody any wiser on the topic, because my stuff would have to be in bottles?

Charles - 12 bottles microbrewed
Jon - NB Growler
Ian - several misc. beers
Andrew - several misc. beers

Thank you all who came out.

Extra special thanks to Ian for putting this thing together, cooking, bringing the awesome brats AND the grill, to Sarah for hooking up the cheesecake and inspiring this whole GTG, and to Alan for the softball sized scrumptious beefy burger goodness.

It was, as always, great to see everyone last night.

For those that missed out, it sounds like we may do another one of these soon, including a short drive and during the day i believe? :D

I'm thinking the 11th, 17th, or 18th of August myself...maybe I'll start another post...

Also, thinking about heading down south somewhat...perhaps Monument, Larkspur, or Palmer Lake area, so our CO Springs and further south bretheren can partake...

If we do, I hope it is the 11th, instead of 17th or 18th.  The 18th I will probably head back to St. Louis, and the 17th is the day after my birthday, so I might be um...incapacitated! :)
