#EndlessBBQ v5.0 for MSL/Curiosity – Nov 26

For this #EndlessBBQ, we thought we’d try something a little different.  Yesterday I put a question out on Twitter asking if anyone would be interested in doing a space themed Cupcake Camp for the Mars Science Laboratory/Mars Curiosity  launch celebration on November 26 at about 6pm.  As I expected, many of you favored this idea.

What is a Cupcake Camp you ask?  Cupcake Camp is “an ad-hoc gathering born from the desire for people to share and eat cupcakes in an open environment.”  Founded by Ariel Waldman & friends a few years ago, Cupcake Camps have been held all over the world.  And now is our chance to have one of our own here in Cocoa Beach, Florida and at the same time, share our common love for space.

Just like the previous #EndlessBBQs, Cupcake Camp Cocoa Beach will be free to everyone attending, however, you are welcome to make a small donation if you choose.  We will need volunteers to either make or purchase space themed cupcakes to bring to this event.  If you’re interested, please say so in the comments below or send me a message on Twitter.  We are looking for every provider to bring at least 6 cupcakes but no more than 12.  If you’d prefer to purchase cupcakes or even cookies, you’ll find several grocery stores in the area like Publix, Wal-Mart or Winn-Dixie that all sell them.

Our friends at Cocoa Beach Brewing Company have graciously offered to host #EndlessBBQ v5.0/Cupcake Camp Cocoa Beach.  They have several award winning locally brewed beers (see site link above for details) and a very spacious beer garden to accommodate us all.  If you’d like to see pictures from previous #EndlessBBQs, click through the Flickr photo gallery on the right.  You can also follow Cocoa Beach Brewing Company on Twitter or like them on their Facebook page.

We are very excited about the MSL Mission and #EndlessBBQ v5.0/Cupcake Camp Cocoa Beach on November 26 @ ~6pm. We hope to see you all there!
