What could be better than starting off summer making new friends over shared Mexican/Spanish food (tapas?), music and Margaritas and Sangria on a (hopefully) warm Saturday evening. A very kind Member has offered her home and patio with gas BBQ in Mill Valley for a Fiesta!, complete with a piñata filled with mystery goodies.
We're expecting about 50 people total from several different Meetup groups so we'll need multiples of appetizers, entrees (marinate something for the BBQ?), sides, desserts, libations. A prize will be given for the best (flavored?) Margarita and Sangria recipe (bring enough for 8) so look through your recipes!!
Please indicate what you'd like to bring in the comment section of the RSVP box. Because of the multiple Meetup listings, we can't be too specific about the potluck food so just bring your favorite Mexican/Spanish-themed recipe (home cooked preferred) and a few bottles of beer/Sangria/wine/libation to share with 6-8 people. If you have a favorite Spanish/Mexican music CD, pls bring it too!!
We're asking for a $5 RSVP fee to cover purchasing the piñata, piñata goodies, BBQ propane, serving pieces, etc. Please know that it will be nonrefundable, so plan accordingly.
I'll send weather and food updates as the date gets closer, especially if we're lacking in a particular food category. If you're interested in helping out in other ways such as manning the BBQ, rotating potluck dishes, decorating, helping people with their coats, cleaning up, etc, PLEASE let us know as well. Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated. Thankx Everyone. I'm looking forward to a fun evening making new friends and eating wonderful food!
