Are you talking about Red Stag?! I went to a dinner with Fred Noe when he was introducing that stuff "to get women to drink Bourbon" (his words), and I thought it was the nastiest thing I've ever tasted. I guess it sells well, so to each his/her own, but eeeeeeeee-YUCK!

Nope. Astrid makes their own blend of cherries soaked in whisky, and it is fabulous.

I reiterate: Protein *always* works best at our picnics. Fried chicken, Ostrich eggs, :), etc.

I'm sincerely hoping that you watch Atlanta and that's from whence the Ostrich egg mention stems.  Teddy Jenkins episode, specifically.

I would love to commit, but may be out of town for work.  Will know more as the date approaches.

Someone fried up an ostrich egg at a previous picnic.

From the website:

There are 30 picnic tables in or around the pavilion and electricity, in the form of 4 110-volt outlets, is available for your use. There are two large grills outside the pavilion and a large fireplace within the pavilion. Water and comfort stations are located nearby. 

There is a softball field and an area for volleyball or relay games. Horseshoe pits are near the front of the pavilion. All are for your use during your event. You must provide the sports equipment, though poles are provided for volleyball or badminton.

Its a little early to be thinking about what to bring, but just in case anyone is incline...

DR PICNIC sign up list

Back in February I created a google doc where people could RSVP as well list what they were bringing. Perhaps everyone would be so kind to fill in the appropriate fields so we know all who will be attending, & what will we will need. Thank you in advance!

Sorry, I couldn't decide what I was bringing yet, so I didn't fill out the form.  I am +1 or 2.  I am having dish commitment issues, I haven't even been in my house for a weekend for over 6 weekends and counting, so I just am not organized.  I will work on figuring something out.  But I have it on my calendar.  Hubby makes a mean homemade dumpling, but those are a little better fresh.  I love to bake, but I haven't baked in probably two months and don't know what I would want to do.  I was going to test out homemade empanadas.  I likely will also make some sort of pasta or fresh salad, but again, haven't committed to the what part yet.

You could cross-reference the trite foods thread and make a couple things from there.  Sort of a meta-critique on criticism.

Getting that thing hacked open was quite something.

It was ol_ironstomach who brought, opened, and cooked the egg - a perfect sunnyside up.

(Plus me. It took two of us 15 minutes to hack open that freaking egg.)
