Hey -- I wanted to run this by everyone here: I'm thinking of organizing a Bass Player Picnic some time in late May, here at my place in NYC. We have a lot of space here at my place, both inside and with the large driveway, garden and garage, and I'm wondering how many people might be interested in making the hang. My landlord is a chef with a catering business, and if enough folks were to show up we could probably pitch money in a hat and have some superb grub. The building is loaded with musicians, photographers, etc., so there's a lot of potential to put together a neat-ass 'Great Day in Long Island City' kind of thing. Shoot me an email message if you're interested and it'll help me get an idea of how big a party it might be, and then, based on that and as the time draws near, we'll start focusing on details.
