Dre developed the Amall Meat Up because he likes to get rollerbladers together for skating, socializing and good ol’ food. We’ve had a total of 12 successful Meat Ups over a 1 year span. Dre is looking forward to the 13th one (to be determined) because he has a special affinity for the number.
Since we can only hold our Meat Ups around the California Bay Area, we highly encourage you to throw your own summer skate BBQ’s if you are not already. Here are a few pointers:
-Let everyone know far enough in advance. None of this,
“Hey brah we should throw a BBQ today at Noon.”
“Dude it’s 3 pm.”
-It’s much easier if you keep the food simple but if you want to go nuts and offer a 5 course meal for folks, I don’t think anyone will complain. Street tacos are easy. Hot dogs are easy. Too much money? Supply just the BBQ and encourage folks to bring their own meat or veggies.
-NO ICE CREAM. I can’t stand it when all of the local scooter kids spill their ice creams all over the skate park. Don’t join them.
-Coolers and ice work great to keep your road soda’s cold. No one likes a warm C- except maybe Mickey Avalon.
-Pop up tents are great and folks will appreciate the shade.
-Camping chairs are nice to sit on under the pop up tents.
-Put your own unique spin on the summer skate BBQ idea. There are no rules here. If you want to have a pinata then go for it. If you want it to have an 80s theme then break out the neon.
-Music is great. Whether you have a jam box or a boom box, folks like to feel the groove.
-Lastly have a fun, enjoyable time. Whiners and complainers need not apply.
