Carolinas Que-Do!-August 17, 2013

ALL: Regrest but I had some unexpected travel pop up and will have to withdraw. Sorry for the short notice and inconvience I may have caused.
I will attempt to PM all who said they may or will participate. If anyone can step up please do so.


Update 1:

Hotels: Plenty of Hotels in the area of CLT airport. (SPG, HH, IHG, Marriott and LaQuinta) Pick your own so you can get stay credit where you need it most!

Itinerary:

17 August 2013

Breakfast: On your own
10:00 Carolina's Aviation Museum, includes the airframe for US 1549. Something about landing in the Hudson.... Group rate, $7.00 pp (Sadly organized tours are not available on Saturday)
12:00-1330 Lunch at Sauceman's BBQ Zagat Score: 24.
1330-1700 Working it. Maybe we can get a tour of CLT Airport???
1730-1830 Dinner at Bill Spoon's BBQ. Zagat Score: 24
1830-2000 Personal Time
2000-until After party. Place TBD (Maybe at the hotel where most of us are staying?)

NOTE: My DW is a Registered Dietitian and she is totaly against the theme of this Do.

It's a possibility, especially since I may have a work reason to be in CAE. I'd probably fly into FAY or RDU, however as CHI-CLT fares are in the high $300s.

This link looks interesting as well, but it doesn't cover SC BBQ which I suspect has some subtle differences from it's NC cousin.

And here's something for 2014:

I'm interested and I think August 17th actually works for me. I may try to talk a friend who lives near RDU into this, too.

Great!

I see this as an event that can bounce around the Carolinas to explore different styles of BBQ and topics of interest! ie. CHS and a tour of the Boeing factory?

Mr. Kipper and I might be able to swing the trip. We'd probably drive, in part so we can swing through Lancaster's in Mooresville on the way home, and so we can smuggle some Que back across the Mason-Dixon Line.

I'm interested in joining, but I'm also an RD and just not a fan of BBQ.
