  • grocery run

    Is anyone interested in doing a grocery run? The folks I usually go with won't be attending this year. I always find it helpful to have a few munchies in room to help when I am too drunk or too broke to stumble down to Kady's, plus a booze run could be made at the same time.

    I'm down. I'll have a vehicle and plan to get in Wednesday afternoon. I'm not sure when you were thinking, but jurist and I will probably hit up a Costco on the way to the ToxicBBQ (if you wish to combine trips).

    Note that I'll be at Caesar's Wednesday night (but around).

    PM for contact info. Or we could just Dodgeball out "food run?"

      Keep in mind that often the Toxic BBQ run makes for a good time to stock up for the rest of the con as well..

          If you want 30 frozen enchiladas, yes. But not so much if you want 10 slices of cheese, a mini-jar of mayo and a single loaf of bread, etc.

            Ditto on the Costco run, only thursday. Should be room for a couple more. Send a PM.

                We'll likely make a run to Trader Joe's. Not sure exactly when we're getting in... probably late on Tuesday or very early Wednesday. We drive down since we have a ton of gear.

                  I'd dig joining adding our car to a non-Costco food and booze run on Thursday... or if someone has the address of a grocery store near the Riv, I'd really appreciate that info so I don't get lost or stuck eating from a convenience store. Or casino buffet.

                    Don't forget that there is a Walgreen's a short walk south of the Riviera. There are also some liquor stores in that general direction (I believe).

                      After having made said "short walk" last year to Walgreen's it's best to make sure you have plenty of sunscreen on and some water for the trek.

                      Also, plan on asking them to double bag heavy items, it sucks to have a bag rip open half way back to the Riv. However if you bring a lackey (Younger Brother) like I did you can always force them to carry everything back.

                        I am impressed. A lot of people have talked about having their own monkey butler at DC, but you're the first one I know of who actually did it.

                            I'd love to ride with someone if they go on a grocery run.

                            I usually bring a hot kettle to make 'instant food'. One year at the AP, a friend of mine had one of those george forman grills and shared with me while he lived on hamburgers and quesadillas at con. I loved it, it was so much cheaper and tasted better than the food in most of the restaurants.

                            If I had a way to get some food from a grocery store this year, I'd seriously think about acquiring a grill to bring with me.

                              It appears that I'll be in on Thurs AM and will have a rental car. Fully willing to be a part of the grocery run. I'll stay tuned for details.
