    THEE NYG SWAG THREAD



    Well i got a good deal from Jay Dees after talking to the owner and he put us down. This place is perfect and is like a mile from the Stadium right on route 17. Its next to the Meadowlands Diner (a couple of buildings before).</p>


    </p>


    Top shelf not included, open bar. But **** top shelf, i got him to include the shots in to hte price for hte open bar.</p>


    </p>


    So $35 per person, 4-8 (4 hour open bar) on April 25th. They have a menu and a good grill from what I hear, but food isn't included. I really have no way of guaranteeing him a number so I couldn't work out the buffet. Although I did tell him we'd have 20-50 people here.</p>

    We include the wife's mother in everything, she's terrific.
    We lived close to my Mother In Law when we lived in the Bronx. When we moved up to CT and my first son was born and mom came up to visit for a few weeks, first thing she did was inform us... "I didn't come up here to babysit... lol. So we planned everything to include her, and she was always a pleasure.

    A pergola just has like 2" x 10" slats across the top, for partial shade, right?
    Yessir. If you make it at a specific width you can get these fabric pull shades for it, about $50-60. they drape over top, and you can slide from side to side to block out, lets say 75% sun at specific times of day.

    And yes, we absolutely went out. But not until after we had spent the day doing spring clean up on the outside of the house, orchard, gardens etc..

    Man, by the time dinner rolled around I really needed drinks more than food.

    - nice pic. Very nice of you to share the day with her Mom as well.

    I think I'm gonna line the pergola with Edison bulbs. I think that would give it just enough lighting without being offensively bright.

    Yeah, that's my plan, Byron.

    If the fire is going well enough it'll burn. I'll just have to feed it in slowly and get rid of it that way.

    Yup! Made it myself with some river rock. After 11 seconds I decided to use the chain saw which probably saved me time in the long run.

    I'll bet it does. That's certainly better than dealing with bags but still, that is a **** ton of work.

    Oh man, that's not fooling around. I hope you have a truck or delivery as opposed to dealing with bags. That would have to be like 150-175 bags.

    I also finished chopping up the 50 foot evergreen that fell during the storms. That took three sessions, last one being Saturday.

    My wife wouldn't sign off on my plan to deal with it. One can of gas, one book of matches one chair and one case of beer.
