Impromptu meetup in Bay Area
« on: January 04, 2014, 12:08:49 PM »
Sooooo one thing led to another and a few Grillfellas met up today in the Bay Area. We hung out at a Starbucks, traded stories, ogled some Zavod handles, and took over a parking lot for a bit. Sorry to those that missed it as it was pretty last minute. Kako5256 had to pick up some stuff from Duke and Argentflame, and Salad had to pick something up from Duke so I hitched a ride to hang out.

HeyJude had nothing better to do so he showed up too. AJ came late. He hobbled over with his walker.


AJ had the truck loaded with a Portable Kitchen. He says it has magical powers or something


Dr. Duke was playing Santa today and gave out a bunch of goodies. Kudos, Duke!

Group shot! L-R Kako5256, Salad, HeyJude, Duke, Argentflame, PBE Gummi Bear. The WKC Filipino contingency was in full force today!


Argentflame has a PK too and he was telling Kako5256 how awesome it is.


This guy pulled into the parking lot, saw Duke's shirt, and asked what Weber Kettle Club was...... and it was all downhill from there. He started telling us about how he rescued a kettle with a table but the igniter didn't work. He also said he would check out the site! He also got AJ's digits before he left. lol


My wife saw the pics and said "you guys are weird." Some people just don't understand ;) but at least she's tolerant. Cheers!

Love it! And the weather out there looks to be, what, a hundred degrees better than many of us are feeling right now? Thanks for giving us all a little vacation. I only wish I had been there, but my trip to the Bay Area isn't until next weekend.

It's the Winter of WKC!

I was probably 55F out this morning. Some braved it in shirts, and some bundled up. LOL

55F, I'd kill for that right now...a foot of snow down and maybe another foot on the way. -14F for a high come Monday.
Not everyone deserves to know the real you. Let them criticize who they think you are.

I'd trade you 55F for 2 ft of snow any day (for snowboarding!)

A special thanks to Kako for putting it together and Gummi for making it a real sanctioned meet. Everyone that was notified showed up and it was a lot of fun. I really appreciated seeing Salad again and meeting Kako and Argent for the first time. We vowed the next one will be at a park in the area. Also, thanks again Gummi for taking the pictures and the Christmas present (jam and candy) it was all much appreciated. I can't wait for the next meeting. :)

Nice meeting HeyJude, Argent and Kako today and seeing Duke and Gummi again.  Special thanks to Duke who gave me a new project in the way of an old SJ that WILL cook again.  I was also the recipient of a beautiful twist pan for an 18.  If only I had an 18 that was worthy.  That's next on the list, for sure. 
Oh and it's about 67 degrees where I am right now.  Kind of odd for this time of year but I'm not complaining!

Looks like a good time, wish I could have brought my PKs out to play.
