    Re: BBQ Update

    Let's put it this way. I, personally, am solid on the location. The participants of the Titanium Chef Challenge will also be, once they get their instruction sheet at the meetup or get a txt message from me.

    We (the Titanium Chef teams and staff) will be at the BBQ way earlier than everyone else. If you find us, you will be in good shape. (We're not talking about Central Park or Fairmount Park here... Sunset Park isn't that big. You won't get left out or lost as long as you show up remotely in the right area of the city.) Our event is wrapping up at around 5:00 PM and the biggest BBQ crowds don't start showing up until at least 6:00.

    The best thing you can do to help support the BBQ event and to wind up totally cool is to...
    1. Show up with some goods of your own (food, booze, etc) so that we don't have a moocher problem

    2. Park away from the BBQ event area (the main parking lot is awesome... just walk over to where you see us) so you're not making our scene wicked-crowded with vehicles. As long as it's not Sam's Hot Car Lot things are in good shape.

    3. Pick up your trash as you leave. No matter how loud or numerous we are, i'll wager dollars to doughnuts that the powers that be will draw 90% of their opinion about us from how we leave the area. So please, just get your shit into a trash can (or even better, grab a contractor bag from one of the staffers and put all your stuff in that, tie it off, and put it by a refuse bin)

    these are just my suggestions to make the event go well and to keep everyone happy. i'm guessing that Londo or the other top brass of the BBQ will make a more formal post tomorrow, etc. it will all be great. just show up and be cool and we're halfway there.

I don't feel cool when I go there. I'm tired of seeing John Mayer's face pop up. I feel like I'm being hustled when I visit there, and I don't think their product is that great. DRM, low bit rate, etc... OiNK it existed because it filled a void of what people want."

      That was my plan, roll down the windows and smell for meat.

      Is there any known issue with glass bottles? Or am I going to have to buy some damned cans (or worse, suffer a beer that comes in plastic bottles)

        I have another thought on conspiracies related to the location:
        Since some people that go to the BBQ also go to BlackHat, we know that some will have left for Las Vegas by now. This delay in location information is designed to encourage people to bring their desktop and laptop computers with them to Defcon, so they can touch down, get on the forums this weekend, and find the location of the Toxic BBQ. It is a conspiracy to encourage people to bring their computers with them to BlackHat and Defcon. It is a social engineering attempt. Obey! Conform! Bring your computers to Defcon!

        Am I chiding the organizers too much? ]:>

          Sorry, I was probably reading too much into converge's statement that it would be the same bbq... I interpreted that into being the same grill and you had already posted where it used to be. so I didn't feel that I was dragging you into this. I tried to make a point that I wasn't sure as I too have long been under the impression that it would not be at the same location so that statement confused me.

          I was fishing for clarification of the same bbq statement and I'm sorry if my post might confuse people and direct them to the wrong place.

            Not so sure about the conspiracy thing, BBQ isn't exactly a top secret, show up and have fun! Seriously, nothing new this year.

            If it needs more aura, lost says to consider finding the BBQ as the easiest part of the mystery box contest.
            if it gets me nowhere, I'll go there proud; and I'm gonna go there free.

              But finding the BBQ is the Best part, but when you do find it you'll notice that it’s in the same place that it was before. Also there is a very large parking lot that is across the park unfortunately it isn’t very close but it has a lot of room.

              Everyone have a safe trip out to Vegas.

                Don't worry about it. The Smiley at the end of my comment :-) was meant to show I was not angry, upset or scolding anyone. I'm really not that scary -- really!

                Ah! Hah! So, it is in the same location in Sunset Park used in all of the other Toxic BBQ?

                Don't destroy the conspiracy theory I'm trying to create! I'm on a roll! ]:>

                It looks like you all have the Toxic BBQ planning ready. Congrats to you all.

                  Re: BBQ Update

                  regarding location, i wanted to point out a quick note to all parties who are driving to the Park... be mindful of the multitude of streets with "sunset" in their name that surround the area. I've worked up a little map from my private satellite that i keep orbiting the earth in order to monitor poeples' ex-wives, etc for a fee...


                  ... i'll let the event's more formal organizers edit this post and / or delete that map if it shows the wrong details, but it would be great if people enter on Sunset Park Road (as opposed to Ave) and park in the really large lot indicated there. it's a very short walk to the area where we'll be set up with grills, etc. (about 200 feet) so park where there's plenty of room, walk with the lake to your left side, and you'll come to the area with lots of reddish-beige stones. You'll also clearly see the Titanium Chef people and possibly Gadsden and/or Pirate flags hanging from trees.

                  see you there!

                      I'll just toss this out here again... I'm a local with an SUV who's happy to deliver food (trays, plates, etc) to the goons and staff stuck back at the Riviera.

                      Also, I plan on bringing a "construction crew" style beverage cooler/dispenser thingie of my famous white peach sangria to share with anyone interested.

                      Pls feel free to PM me if I can be of assistance to Titanium Chef or Toxic BBQ in general.

                              I'll have roughly 5 gallons of the stuff with me... along with a hefty supply of the world's best bupcakes with chocolate-almond frosting. (I'm hoping they'll survive the heat if I freeze them after frosting!)

                                So I'm just assuming I can help deliver trays of food to the Goons back at the Riv. Anyone know if a gallon thermos jug of white peach sangria would be appreciated by Goons, or would it just torment them with it's alcoholic goodness?
