    I feel out of the loop, what is this Golden Gardens? Perhaps I'll try to keep the date open. :D

    Also, 4th of July party full of PAXers would be epic. Alas, I am planning a LAN that weekend.... though we may still move it.

    This sounds pretty sweet. Sign me up.

    Also, a 4th of July party would be all kinds of awesome. Especially since I imagine a lot of explosions.

    That cul-de-sac made the perfect fireworks exploding area.

    My mom is the coolest. She says everyone is welcome, she's cool with fireworks and she said she'll even get some kegs if people chip in some money. She loves parties! She also said everyone is welcome to (get massively drunk and) camp out with tents and stuff. Also there could be potential for bonfire action. And smores.

    Only downside is you have to go down to Tacoma-ish. But, it's like 30 mins.

    Well, I live in Federal Way, so it'll be a hop skip and a jump for me ^^.

    I just realized I have a concert on June 20th... but it doesn't start until 9:00ish it looks like. So, I could pop by for a while.

    As far as July 4th goes, I'm totally down :).

    That is awesome Nomad. Smores are of course a natural outcome of a bonfire. Of course it's the unnatural outcomes that arise from drunk people and a bonfire that make the real entertainment.

    And what we learned(again) last year was to keep the fireworks away from the food.

    I hate to disappoint you guys, but there isn't much of an interesting story.

    Last 4th of July, with another group of my friends, we had a barbecue with the grill on their second floor patio. Making that the natural place to congregate. Thus having us all drinking and eating there, led us to setting off fireworks on this patio. We're too lazy to walk down a flight of stairs even when explosives are involved.

    After lighting a lot of fireworks up there all the ash was everywhere. It wasn't until after most of the fireworks were used up that we realized all the ash was now over all the food that was laid out. Gave things an interesting taste. We might have even cared if we hadn't already been eating and drinking for a few hours at that point.

    I look forward to the antics that a PA crowd can cause when combined with fireworks. :twisted:

    So if I don't get drunk, and then decide to jump over the bonfire, that still covers your clause :-P
