Photos & Video: Grillin’ On The Bay Wrap Up

Smoke billowed from St. Mark School’s yard (Avenue Z and East 18th Street) on Saturday, March 26, while chili and beer flowed freely inside the building itself. And now another Grillin’ On The Bay is over and done with.

There’s not too much in the way of numbers available yet from St. Mark or the event organizers, but we’re guessing the school did quite well from this awesome fundraiser. All the vendors sold out of food, the beer taps ran dry and t-shirts vanished. The chilly weather – the coldest in the event’s history – may have hurt attendance numbers, and a chilly economy may have limited the number of teams involved, but that didn’t stop the rest of us from having fun. Want proof? Here’s a roundup of what others are saying:

As for us, our live blogger, Angelina Tala, kicked coverage butt. She dashed back and forth through the St. Mark grounds, snagging photos and quotes to make those of you who couldn’t make it feel like you were getting in on the action. And according to our stats, hundreds of you tuned in throughout the day. She did all that in the face of a slew of obstacles, from internet drop outs, failed video uploads and a useless editor. So credit – and my deepest gratitude – for the day’s reporting goes 100 percent to Angelina.

So where was I? Well, for those of you not tuning in to the live blog, I was manning the table with Sheepshead Bites promoter Jobana S., who is way cuter than I am, and far more effective at drawing people to the table. We had about 300 to 400 people come by and say hello, the vast majority of them already familiar with the site (a big difference from last year!). We sold out on t-shirts and gave away about 350 stickers, so I’d say it was a huge success. Thanks to everyone who came by; my favorite part of these events isn’t the free beer I get (a close second), it’s getting to meet all of you who make this site possible.

This was the first year that Sheepshead Bites sponsored Grillin’ On The Bay, and I hope to work more closely with the organizers next year. Thanks to Robert Fernandez and the folks at St. Mark for letting us play a role in the community’s best event. We also hope to throw a few events ourselves, so stay tuned!

And without further ado, here are photos (and a video) from Angelina Tala, Heather Chin, Doug Keiles, Ariela Baranov and Knightmare6. Thanks for submitting!

  1. Way to catch a nice picture of me chewing the delicious BBQ Sundae from Three Men and A Baby Back in picture 107. I’d charge for use of my likeness if it wasn’t for the awesome t-shirt I got.
