What a special, special night. Awesome food and awesome people. Loved every minute spent with all who came.

Needed no introduction to Steve. After spending hundreds of hours watching his videos, I could pick his hands out of a crowd!

Thanks to Mark for making this possible, thanks to all for your company.

The normal ones or the compromising ones? I think we have lots of the food and a few of the end-of-the-night America vs Japan arm wrestling contest..... Dinner table littered with empty cocktail glasses, while the blacksmiths/woodworkers showed their power.....

If it goes well we may do it again in the future. Maybe move it to NYC or LA to give other guys a chance to attend.
LA?
NY?
Maui :D
I certainly hopes this goes off well enough to do it again, West Coast, East Coast or Maui doesn’t matter, I’ll be there. I vote Ray’s place though just so I can meet that awesome pooch of his.

This was an absolutely fantastic weekend from dinner all the way through the show! If this happens again next year or anytime after I will definitely be there no matter where it is! I met so many great people and had so much fun. And Cindy, keep those compromising pictures to yourself, I can't have my wife seeing them!

Jeff, I can offer a deal. I will turn over all compromising photos of you in exchange for the Tsourkan you bought.

My daughter and I are utterly flexible. She has a shellfish allergy so I will eat her shellfish. I am diabetic so she'll eat my desert. A symbiotic relationship, but I think I'm the winner.
My goal is to prove you wrong :D
Yes, you proved me wrong. Very wrong. Still grappling with how to try to recreate the incredible juniper maple ice cream. New life mission. Thanks so much Jesse.

And West starts to go down! :o

Damn, let's move some dishes and do this again! :evil:

West redeemed himself but all evidence of the win was destroyed by spies! :shock:

Both sides declined the invitation for a tie breaker....

A HUGE thank you to everyone who came.

In his defense, the guy was hammering out knives by hand at a knife making demonstration I was at the day before in DC.
