BBBQs


#21

perhaps they were expecting people to byob


#22

This is definitely what’s happened, but they should obviously have said. Multiple times. LOUDLY.


#23

We’ve been to birthday parties and the like where they’ve had beer and wine, so yes.


#24

Pretty much every BBQ I’ve been to has seen the hosts provide the venue, BBQ, food and soft drinks, and the guests bring the alcohol.


#25

I don’t think it’s weird in and of itself but it is unusual behaviour.


#26

really? what they don’t but ANY booze at all?

Nah, not grown ups


#27

I mean I’m not saying it’s odd or anything but it is unusual


#28

Maybe a bit, if they’re drinking themselves, but everyone has a wide range of what they drink (beer, lager, gin, pimms, wine, aperol spritz etc), so it’s a bit unreasonable to expect the hosts to provide all of that.


#29

We had a small family BBQ yesterday for Fathers Day. It was rather lovely and I got to play with my niece and nephews in the garden.

I’m not a fan of huge BBQs but a small family one is fine, and of course beer was involved.


#30

Imagine kicking off because a host didn’t have Aperol


#31

The dream:
Ace food on a lovely day with your pals

The reality:
Smoke in your eyes, below-par food every 40 minutes when it’s your turn to get something, everyone has a shite place to sit, balancing a paper plate of food is fucking terrible.


#32

no u


#33

:thinking:


#34

I wouldn’t turn up to a BBQ without my own beers (and a food contribution).


#35

You know, it’s not strange but it’s not normal


#36

remember that horrible period in life (around the ages of 18-23) when every BBQ you’re invited to involves hunching round a couple of those shitty disposable tray BBQs poking some miserable kebabs around.

there’s no point to a BBQ unless its on a proper coal fired grill, m89.


#37

Reckon a vodka capri sun would be a treat at a bbq


#38

Elaina goes pure radge if she can’t neck a few between overcooked burgers.


#39

Just been on a stag do where we rented a massive gaff out and I helmed a barbecue for 18 lads and it was awesome. If you know what you’re doing, barbecues are great.

Nowt wrong with a booze free barbecue. Although what I will say is it is absolutely mandatory for the person doing al the grilling to have a beer in hand at ALL times. The rest of you can do what you want.


#40

I meant I’m not criticising them or saying it’s right or wrong, just uncommon
