I always have a tank on backup. When one runs out I have another one ready to go and then I have a few weeks to fill the other. Since the cost of the tanks it's anything insane it worth not being SOL before dinner/a party or whatever. I would although like to give this a try because I once had an issue with my grill only to find out the gas was out .... doh! Such a newbie move (which I am).

My recommendation is have the landlord HIRE someone to pain the colors you want. I like a white with some shimmer on the ceiling you you can pick up on the pattern, light blue on the walls and strip the bricks and let that wonderful color come through ... depending on how that looks I think it will be more than enough. Maybe a grey chevron/stripe/diagonal stripe wall at an end.

Don't worry about what you register for you can always return it for something else or a bigger ticket item and although some might not agree which me you shouldn't feel bad about it. We received a number of smaller items off our registry and took all the things back and purchased a beautiful dining room table which we'll keep, use for years and will host dinner for all of the people that contributed to it on.

I made some when I saw it on GWS and I found that ones with more petals turned out better.

I also not a huge slow cooker fan but I recently made something very simple that you totally work for 1 person. No matter what the size of the slow cooker place some chicken breasts in the cooker and season with salt, pepper and chili powder and then place water in the cooker and cook on low. Once you get home take the chicken out and slightly shred it. Grab an onion and sauté it. Once browned add the shredded chicken. Once browned to your liking use the chicken either in tacos, enchiladas or alone with a salad/potato.

I think your budget for that amount of people is totally dooable. Just this past weekend my friends and I cooked at a women's shelter for 120 people for $200. The dishes weren't anything uber high-end or organic but delicious none the less. We cubed chicken and marinated it in garlic, evoo, and lemon juice. The chicken was skewered with peppers, mushrooms and onions and served with salad and brown rice seasoned with some lemon juice. We would have liked to add hummus to the dish but that would take us over the budget. You could do something like that and maybe add hummus, pita bread and a taziki sauce. I think you can feed your group very well, you just have to plan well.

It's not RUDE but whenever I've gone to a BBQ I think it ends up being a mess because in our situation there are a ton of people trying to get to the grill picking up the lid to check their stuff. Generally the actual cooking process is a mess. I'd think it's generally a better idea just have everyone bring a dish, whatever it is, and not have one person bringing hotdogs, chicken, steak, tofu yatta yatta. I find it more seamless to have one person "owning" each dish or because meats can be pricy you have 2 people. Also recently when I went to one of these BYOM BBQs the host only had sides for tacos which she failed to inform everyone that, that was the only stuff she was providing. Communication is a key part of these for sure.

Depending on what the inside looks like maybe you can just take off some of the doors. My friend did that at her place and as small of a change as it was it helped. Also maybe a compromise would be to change some of the doors out to have some windowed cabinets.
