Hi Kylie, glad you could make it. The M & G is a most civilized party. I think of it like the 3rd day on a cruise when everyone jogs past the buffet. Bring wine, mingle, flop on a couch and meet real burners. (They don't come to the desert to pose for pictures or make a video.) They are participants.You're a young, fresh, Birgin. Win, win.

We could probably fit you two in. If not, then certainly her. (Just kidding) We'll likely have over 200 people throughout the course of the evening coming by so more ePlayans the merrier! Bring food. I have found those round platters of shrimp that can be bought frozen at Costco are very popular.

As a man of the Tribe, I don't mess with shrimps frozen or otherwise. Can I bring some sumptuous alcohol? Or is that already spoken for?

Well come on Doc, I thought you were gonna make the comment about the Internet meetings - you didn't so I had to, and now I'm the one who seems unsavory!
Well played, sir.

Just the type of people I'd love to get to know better.

A nice, crisp, refreshing white it is then.

I am looking forward to meet and greet, and can't believe I will see many of you soon.

Can anyone think of what is still needed for Meet and Greet.
I can bring non alcoholic drinks, or wine, appetizers, hard booze for mixing...
Any ideas? There are so many pages of entries, I am hoping someone who has followed this thread can help.

If you actually cook out there (I don't!) you probably can't go wrong with something substantial or savory. I don't think everyone has put down what they're bringing, but people will default to alcohol if they run out of time, and from the looks of the spreadsheet there could be more solid food. :lol:

Don't let me tell you what to bring, but that's just an idea.

Thanks Savannah, I will think of something more hearty.
Good idea, will also help absorb the drink...the party will last longer!

I keep hearing that the serious shortages are usually soft drinks and other mixers. For example, the GP&E Bar just sent out a plea for members to bring mixers. They listed Club Soda, Tonic Water, fruit juices, Cola and 7up.

Thank you, Elliot. I really don't want to scare anyone who can't or doesn't cook. It's not like we won't know what to do with an excess of cocktails.

Heck, I think I will bring a mixer, too.

I have posted this before, but assuming you have refrigeration (and if you don't stop reading now) like in an RV, I have found those circular trays of shrimp with sauce that can be found at Costco are a big hit. Yeah, yeah, they're not kosher, but we don't exactly bring two sets of dishes out to the playa (if you're not Jewish that last reference may well be lost on you). I suspect some of these people would eat Milk Bonz if you poured bacon grease on them. And they wouldn't be kosher either. At least, I don't think they would be.

Based on the list I think I may bring some juices and maybe some gingerale. Love me some whiskey gingers! As it looks like a lot of people will be bringing wine already and it appears that as was being discussed above there is a shortage of mixers.

Everyone that drives to the burn from home brings way too much of everything*. By Wednesday you'll be saying, "I'll bring that and that and that."


*Except of course that thing you forgot and will spend all week trying to find.

Well, I just bought 14 bottles of wine, which I knew was totally excessive, but hey- it's only your first burn once!

So... once again. At the last minute, my life implodes (and my truck, but mostly my life). Seriously. Anyway. yet another year where I won't be attending. I think next year I will wait till the day I depart to post in this thread. Sorry all.

I'm so sorry things are not going well for you, then to miss the burn, that sucks!
