Buns, Beer & Backpacks: A (2)Dope BBQ, West Coast Edition

blame it on Meka July 23, 2011

By now, you’ve seen this familiar sight on this spot for the past couple of weeks. The resulting response has been more than I thought would happen, and Shake and I are extremely happy and humbled by the fact that folks would actually want to attend an event with a purpose. I mean, sure, it would have been much simpler to throw a party just to only invite all of our rapster friends and industry kinfolk, but that simply makes no sense to do so and is, in my ever-so-humble opinion, corn sauce. Hence why this and every future (2)Dope event will be for a cause, which we hope the masses will be down for too.

Anyways, this post is just to signify that the list for the (2)Dope BBQ is now closed, and that if you did not get an RSVP or are at the very least someone’s plus-one, the chances of you entering the venue are slim to none even if you know where it is and brought something to donate. I hate to be one of “those types,” but let’s be honest: people had over two weeks to RSVP.

For those that did get confirmation, Shake and I thank you for taking the time out of your busy lives to spend time at the dopehouse. However I must stress that while the (2)Dope BBQ was done for folks to enjoy themselves, let’s not forget to have some sense of maturity as well. So if anybody has any qualms with anybody that attends (or even Shake and myself, for that matter), keep that shit at the front door or don’t bother coming in at all. Also, even though the venue has an outdoor area smoking weed should be done as far away from the venue as possible. Once again I hate to be one of “those types,” but the two of us have spent a lot of our own personal time and, more importantly, our own money to make this happen; at the very least show some respect for that.

With that said, I hope to see many of the faces that helped the site become what it is now today. Free food, liquor and more will be on the menu. Name tags will be given out so that people can rock their c-section name for the people to see if they’d like. There will be a dunk tank, where an “inspired” Shake will participate in. Plenty of free giveaways from everybody from LRG to 2K Sports will go down. We may be running around a lot to get things in order, but feel free to introduce yourselves to us as well. Most importantly, have fun; this wouldn’t happen if it weren’t for you all.
