And excuses are starting to trickle in. I understand it's been a tough season for nutria, what with Polar Vortex and global warming. I’m too busy/scared/ashamed, aliens abducted my coriander, dog ate my recipe, my only child is graduating college, whatever…..The short version is we are going to party with you or without you. We will eat lots of great chili, (depending on how much I make) and some of you will have to eat the fishhead stew that the noobs drag in. Pray for a north westerly wind that will keep the smell off the Island. The weather forecast has cooled a tad but it’s still gonna be 66 and partly sunny. Bring a sweatshirt. And a chair. When Craigbob gets old enough to be affected by the weather he'll be strapped to a wheel chair drooling down his chin and it won't matter anyway. Hell he's half way there now.
Remember what I said about electricity? If you will need it to keep your soup warm you need to let Craig know. If you don’t and then you show up looking for a plug and there aren’t any I’ll hit you with a quarter. Let him know. Please.
