The event itself was a whole buch of fun last year. :smile:

We have very dear friends that live in Cape Coral,Fla and my sister-in-law lives in Port Charolette-which I am told isn't too far away. We hope to be visiting both in February.Should I add you to the list Renee? ;) Love and energy, Vicki

Renee Attili 10-09-2007 04:26 PM

Just an update: The Charity Cook Off was this past Sunday. It was a HUGE success!!!!!
16 teams cooked off for the "Q"-Master title.
We had over 1000 people (up from 550 last year) and raised over 20,000 items for the Soup Kitchen in our area. The food was amazing!

Andy M. 11-20-2007 03:13 PM

That's great Renee. I'm glad it was a success!

I work at a grill store in Cape Coral called Grill It Yourself. If you have any needs for a custom outdoor kitchen, woods, sauces or spice, stop in. I would love to meet a DCer in person.:tongue:

I lived in SW FL for about 1.5 years. It was the most stressful decade of my life.

Was it the heat and humidity, the traffic, economy or the general lack of niceness that got to you?:lol::cool:

phinz 11-27-2007 12:14 PM

Yes, yes, yes, yes and yes. You couldn't pay me enough money to move south of Valdosta ever again unless it was to live in the Keys.

Renee Attili 11-27-2007 12:24 PM

And believe it or not, you couldn't pay me to move north of Gainsville, Fl. LOL
This place is kind of............ diffferent though! But we do know how to BBQ!!!
There was some great flavors flying around here that day!

phinz 11-27-2007 01:14 PM

The nice thing about the Cape is it's pretty desolate, relatively speaking, and gated communities aren't common, so if you know where you're going you can get there pretty easily. I did a graphics project that was on the sides of the Classroom on Wheels at Mariner High School several years ago.

Bonita Springs was miserable, and Naples even worse. Between gated communities, the lack of north/south roads and the general crappy attitude of snowbirds as they clogged the roads during rush hours or acted as condo commandos, I had had enough within a year and the last 6 months was spent trying to get out of the state.

My fondest memory? Sunset at Doc's with my wife and a pitcher of Amber Bock. If I could take that and put it in Tennessee, I'd be in paradise. :mrgreen: I spent many evenings there and would again if I could.

Yup, has to be one of those. No way it could have anything to do with the weekly grow house busts, monthly murders, bi-weekly armed bank robberies, more homeless folks than anywhere, and, oh yeah, for six months out of the year we're the lightning center of the earth.

Buzz LOL but it's all true.....

Yeah that too. But it can't be all that bad because you and I still choose here to live. :rolleyes:

Now If they do something about the insurance and Property taxes so I can stay:ermm:

phinz 11-27-2007 03:07 PM

I used to love the lightning shows. New Year's Eve, 2002 was *amazing,* and that was during the "dry" season.

We are working on getting a sanctioned KCBS or FBA contest in the Port Charlotte area for 2008. No time line yet, but it will not interfere with the Cape contest in November.

The only times I was in Florida is to vacation, even though I never lived there or got into cooking at that time. From what I remember it was too hot to cook over a stove or grill, not that I'm putting down the lifestyle in Florida.

May the sauce be with you

Summer in Florida is the residents' little secret. The humidity is good for the skin, drastically reduced traffic, no waiting for restaurant tables, the beaches are OURS, fishing is great, any golf tee time you want. When we get tired of taking two showers a day we head up North and leach off friends and relatives for awhile. :rolleyes: Life is good.
