Default Order of the Phoenix Alliance: Boardwalk Bar-B-Que

I just thought I'd post this here. It's a small event I was planning on hosting for my alliance, but it's gotten bigger and bigger as we've invited friends to join us. I just thought I'd share with the Guru community - Feel free to stop by!

*please note this is a small alliance event so the prizes might not be all THAT great, but hey, you never know. *

A south wind blows unto the lands of Tyria, reminding us all that our lands are touched by the lethargic days of summer. The Boardwalk of Kaineng Center is alight with festive glory as denizens of Tyria along with members of the OOP Alliance descend upon it with a cheery glow. Join together with your friends and all others you wish to invite to celebrate the great community we all share!

The Queen is always in for a Bar-B-Que. I hope you have plenty of elementalists ready to flip burgers because I have one hell of an appetite.

Sounds fun, I'll join if I can muster the will to keep awake. Due to my current sleeping habits, who knows when I'm awake and asleep anymore. :x
