Chiagrill returns with a bang, literally. Early on in the evening we experienced a big grease fire on the main grill and a scary poof of a ball of gas igniting while lighting the second grill. Understandibly people were a bit hesitant to start grilling, but the brave cooking of chia itself was enough to sway the masses.

A half barrel of Bell's Oberon quickly lubricated the crowd and it wasn't long before we had about 40 happy people from all walks of chia enjoying the evening: the UofM EECS, UofM Education, West-side Drinking Authority, Eastern Michigan, Arbor Networks, Michigan Tech Alum (and now various Ann Arbor tech company employees), neighbors, and monkeys.

The keg bit it at 11:28pm, and it was less than an hour later that we had relocated the party to the venerable 8Ball. Now not every chiagrill can be this interesting, but there will be a couple more of this magnitude; I have no doubt.
