Party -- next Monday!

As I mentioned a while ago, msmemory and I are having a Memorial Day party, and you're all invited!

This is going to be next Monday afternoon -- Memorial Day proper, late enough in the weekend that folks going to Panteria and other events can come by afterwards. It's intended as a garden-warming: having bought this house with this lovely big yard with garden and trees and all, we're having a party to inaugurate it. So there will be the usual sorts of lawn activities (bocce, croquet, frisbee), as well as generally hanging out and soaking up the sun.

The party will start around 3pm, and run until dark. Come by for some or all of the afternoon; this isn't going to be highly structured. In the middle, I'll fire up the grill and make the usual sorts of things on it. (Yes, it's okay to just show up for dinner.) We'll be providing some of the basic protein units (hamburgers, hot dogs, etc), and some amount of soda. Additional food is welcome but not required -- we are most interested in having your company.

As part of this, we will also be having The Great Crossert Stuff Giveaway -- we have an enormous pile of stuff that we have no room for in the new house, and which needs to go. Check out the outline list for an idea of what there is (everything from books to a sofa), and please take some time to peruse the stuff and haul away what interests you.

Obviously we're hoping for good weather (and the early indications are encouraging), but the party will happen rain or shine. If it rains, we'll move inside, and spent the time in games and other recreation.

If you know you're going to be there and haven't already told us, drop us a note so we have a vague idea of how many people are coming. If you aren't sure now, but find yourself with the time, come on by anyway -- we're well familiar with not being able to make solid plans until the day of, and would love to have your company regardless...

ETA: Directions to the house can be found on our household wiki...
