Campfire at Alina's

  • October 12, 2013 · 5:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Come one, come all to warm your bodies and souls by a campfire. And connect in nourishing conversations.

Potluck dinner. Healthy wholesome food encouraged - ready made meats, or for the grill, a rainbow of vegetables and fruits. Perhaps some cider? Or an apple pie? Let us know what you wish to bring, or just show up with it.

Please park in the field, there will be a sign. If you use a GPS, you will miss it by a few hundred feet, so look for the sign for 777 Creek Rd, or the small field with a garden.

Looking forward :)

-Alina

    I had an amazing time! I enjoyed the drumming circle, the atmosphere, food ... Most of all I enjoyed everyone's company. A special thanks to Alina for opening up her home to all of us. A magical place indeed! And let's not forget Greg for making this happen.

    A pretty good event. I probably had more fun than I thought I would. The weather was a little iffy but other than that it was good.

    October 12, 2013

    • Alina

      I thought the weather could not be any more perfect :) Glad you enjoyed yourself!

    If anyone could possibly get tiki torch fillers, the actual torch lights with whatever fluid is inside, we could use some. I have the empty tiki torches (10 or so), but forgot about the insides. Even a couple would be great! But not a necessity, just for intimate ambiance:)

    October 12, 2013

    • Alina

      My mistake, just need to torch oil. And fill them.

      October 12, 2013

  • Greg C.

    If anyone wants to bring drums or instruments, please do

    October 12, 2013

  • Alina

    IMPORTANT NOTE: PLEASE PARK ON THE OPPOSITE SIDE OF THE ROAD, so cars can still pass. The field is wet. The first to come, can drive up an park on the driveway, but if it gets blocked (it's a half circle drive, come one way, drive out the other), people will have to move cars to leave, which will work too.

    1 · October 12, 2013

    • Alina

      Yummy!

    Hi, I shall get some meat to throw on the grill. Some juice as well. Is that good ?

    1 · October 12, 2013

    • Alina

      Sounds perfect!

      1 · October 12, 2013

    I'm bringing brownies and some extra fire wood..

    2 · October 12, 2013

    Looking forward to tonight. See what the power of intention can do? Good job group, clear skies for tonight :) I'll bring some hotdogs

    October 12, 2013

    • scott

      October 12, 2013

    • Alina

      How about a pumpkin pie? Just an idea.

    I'll see what else I can muster up. Some water, Ice tea, and definitely marshmallows (a must for any campfire) Alina, are there sticks around to use?

    October 12, 2013

    • Alina

      yes, sticks are aplenty :)

    I will make some brown rice with salsa for the crock pot.

    2 · October 12, 2013

  • Alina

    Would be good to know who's bringing what food- do we have any meat? Burgers, hot dogs, may be some cut of meat to throw in the grill that's already marinated, may be veggies to throw on the grill. Prepared dishes would be great too!!! A salad perhaps. Dessert? Food will be set up inside for convenience, you can then grab a plate and sit by the campfire.

    October 12, 2013

    • Bill

      Hi Alina. Can I bring some firewood for you?

      October 12, 2013

    • Alina

      I think we have enough, but sure, just in case! :0

      October 12, 2013

  • Alina

    Since its been raining this week, the field and ground may be slightly muddy. Please wear appropriate shoes. And warm layers for the evening.

    October 12, 2013

  • Alina

    If you have a camping chair, we could use a few. I will set up all the ones we have, should seat about 15.

    October 12, 2013

  • Ken K.

    I can bring buns and condiments.

    1 · October 11, 2013

    • Alina

      Is someone bringing burgers and hotdogs? Have not heard yet.

      October 12, 2013

  • Alina

    Would be best if you get here before dark, as parking (most likely in the field) will be hard to see in the dark. I'll put out orange comes to guide you there. When you are driving watch out for a small 777 sign, there is also a sign that says "Preserved land" or something and some think it's a park, but that's the place.

    October 12, 2013

  • Laura

    Bringing the crockpot chili afterall....Will be there around 6:30ish..

    2 · October 12, 2013

  • Ken K.

    What is needed in terms of food, drink, supplies? If we're on.

    October 11, 2013

  • Alina

    I have plates, cups, utensils and napkins.

    October 11, 2013

  • Alina

    Who is thinking of bringing what food? Grill will be running.

    October 11, 2013

  • Alina

    If anyone is bringing burgers or hot dogs, please bring or ask someone else to get buns and condiments. Or lettuce wrapped burgers will be served:)

    October 11, 2013

  • Alina

    The weather forecast is looking better and better for Sat night. Please keep holding the intention for dry weather, crisp air and star filled skies!!! Check back here tomorrow for a final verdict. I'm very hopeful we will have a great get-together.

    Hello Alina
    Thank you for offering this unique event. Can you clarify if its still on rain or shine, indoors not out?
    Enjoy the day,

      Well you could limit it to just members. That would knock off a few people in case you had to move indoors. I know it sounds a bit harsh but it's better than not having it at all. Or you could just reschedule sometime in the future if the weather is not good. Just a suggestion of course.

      October 10, 2013

  • Laura

    Hi Alina...
    I will check to see if the event is still on ..I should probably hold off on making a crockpot of chili until we know for sure...

    October 10, 2013

  • Greg C.

    IF we get rained out, everyone is welcome to an indoor gathering at my place. We can even bring over some wood and have a fire in my fireplace. But we all know we're powerful creators, so even if it rains all day, we can produce a beautiful sunset and starry night for the group :)

    1 · October 10, 2013

  • Alina

    If you are inclined to do so, please hold an INTENTION for clear skies, sun and brisk air. And ask the weather Gods to smile at us:)

    1 · October 9, 2013

  • Bill

    I'd like to try and make it

    Sorry, forgot this is the same night as the Witches Ball in NJ, which I was already attending with, actually, 2 of my other groups. I just cancelled my RSVP. Have fun!

      Apparently not much. http://science.time.c...­

      October 7, 2013

  • Lisa T.

    Sounds like fun. I will check my calendar, but so far, I think I make it. If I can, I will bring GF teryiaki marinated country-style ribs, if that's okay. They'll also be dairy free. I will also bring GF/DF brownies. They are a crowd pleaser! Maybe a salad, too? I usually go overboard...I'll see if I can think of anything else to make before then in case these options are not good. Ooh, I make a mean lentil stew! Any questions on allergens, drop me a note, please! I'm pretty adept at modifying. I should know within a couple of days if I can make it. Just need to check with my brother to see if he needs a babysitter that day or not. I am perpetually "on call" for that duty.

    1 · September 30, 2013

    • Lisa T.

      I like to be busy. Keeps me from going stir crazy. And, cooking and baking are my relaxation, so truthfully, it's a win-win. I put a lot of love into the food I create. I promise to try to keep it to a minimum, though. :)

      1 · October 7, 2013

    • Alina

      whatever makes you happy makes us happy :)

      October 7, 2013

  • Laura

    Maybe I will being s'mores... :)

    1 · October 5, 2013

    • Laura

      I don't think my chili has any flour at all....

      October 7, 2013

    • Alina

      veggie chili sounds wonderful!!! nourishing and warming, perfect for a campfire.

      October 7, 2013

  • Lisa T.

    Can make it after all! My brother did need a sitter, but my mom decided she wants some time with her grandbaby, so I'm good! I will be bringing some type of meat dish (likely teryiaki-marinated), roasted red potatoes with garlic & rosemary, and some kind of dessert (not sure yet). I have a recipe I want to try. If it works, I'll bring that. If not, it will never see the light of the bonfire and I'll bring my tried & true brownies. Looking forward to seeing everyone. :)

    Sounds like so much fun!....I wish I could attend, but I'll be working. Have a wonderful time :-)
