Bauer BBQ Week Kickoff 2017

The Hat

It’s once again Bauer BBQ Week when we pause to celebrate with our friends in Springfield. Sadly I don’t have any new Bauer BBQ episodes to add this year, but I’ve got some really great posts and what I think is the best fanfic I’ve written since Springfield Bound: Lost Scenes Around the Finale. It involves plots with a lot of people around Springfield and I hope you enjoy it. It’s about half finished so hopefully I’ll get it done this week. If I don’t never fear, I’ll continue you as it gets done latter in the month.

What is the Bauer BBQ

Each year we dedicate a week to the most important event on the Springfield social calendar, the Bauer BBQ. As a family of immigrants (Michelle’s great-grandparents came over from Germany), the Fourth of July was always important to the Bauer family because they were grateful to live in America and most members of the family believed strongly in community service and giving back to the community. It had long been a tradition to have a family picnic/cookout in honor of the holiday, but in 1983 – we think – some writer came up with the idea of using that as an opportunity to make it a bigger event. It would show Springfielders celebrating when viewers were, allowed good excuses for skimpy clothes, fun games, and people who’ve been trying to avoid each other suddenly forced to talk to each other. Plus something explosive could happen. It was an epic idea and one that would help define years of Guiding Light history. It was a big event all of Michelle’s life.

Bauer BBQ Week means that instead of our normal posts this week we’ll have posts that are episode guides of Bauer BBQ episodes, special informational posts on things like fireworks and food, and hopefully some Bauer BBQ fanfic set at any time with any characters as long as it takes place at and around the Bauer BBQ. If you didn’t get any fanfic written for this year. START NOW for next year when we’ll do it all again. Catch up on previous years at the latest Bauer BBQ round up post.
