UPDATE ~ Just finished making my two foot long sub sammie...

The season opener event in April was a SMASHING Success!!! We had a huge group attend and we wined & dined under the stars with perfect weather on the lawn! Check out the photos, video and reviews ~ http://www.meetup.com/Foodies/photos/14394892/

What better event to unwind than a free jazz concert, bring some food and wine to share and relax now that the weekend is just beginning. Time for a bit of wining and dining with your fellow LA Foodies!

LACMA is pretty chill about bringing in our own food and beverages and if you want to get good seats, you should arrive at least 1/2 hour early (5:30pm) and gather at the raised lawn about[masked] feet in front of the red elevators.

The deal with BYOB wine is just keep it a little on the down low... don't flaunt it or go to the restaurant and ask to borrow their corkscrew...

How to Find Us ~ See the RED Elevators structure in the background? That's where I park my black/yellow Nishiki bike. From the bike, about 50 feet on your right is a slightly raised lawn area with short palm trees and that is where I planned to have our group gather.

BUT!!! Sometimes another group might snag the spot before us and if that is the case, then hang around the bike and text me @[masked] and I'll come get you. When you text me, please tell me your name.


Above pic was a cheese and chacuterie plate I brought to one of these jazz concerts last year...

NO HOST EVENTS - Most of these concerts will be NO HOST events even though it shows Darrell will be attending. If I definitely plan on attending one of the concerts, I will comment. BUT, attending members should make arrangements amongst each other to meet up with each other. I bringing a blanket or beach towel and sit at the elevated lawn area. Serious concert listeners, might want to sit closer, so be it, during the intermission, you can go to the back and search out the rest of the group and share some food/drink together.

So... bring something to share, either some wine or some finger eats such as chacuterie/salumi, cheeses, fresh produce such as grapes, dried fruits such as dates or nuts, olives, bread, foods that are easy to eat without utensils...

Please post what you plan to bring to share at the potluck for this evening.

    May 3, 2013

  • Melinda C.

    OMG! I am so crazy...I just bought 5 lbs of fresh mussels, spinach and pasta, and white wine. I hope someone has french bread to go with it all.
    I might be there late because I'm still waiting on the pasta water for 2 lbs of pasta. Tons of garlic too!
    I hope it tastes as good as it sounds. Save a spot for me. I will be parking in the handicap area. Maybe someone can come out and meet me to help bring in the grub?[masked]

  • Gilda O.

    How does the pot luck work? Is there a list and what about plates and utensils etc?

    April 28, 2013

    • Lee A.

      Keep an eye out for posts of what being brought though lots of folks don't...ones I've been to just work out. Best to bring something to eat with/on, but people often bring spares. Everyone is required to bring chocolate...kidding!

      April 28, 2013

  • Lee A.

    Darrell, it's gotta be mustard. I'm not a very got Jew but I do recall the 11th Commandment: Thou shalt not eat corned beef with mustard!

    April 28, 2013

  • Lee A.

    Last week WAS great...looking forward to this one.

    April 22, 2013

  • Darrell

    Tenatively... Corned beef sliders with my home made mustard or mayo.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
