Our newest Event Organizer, Marcus will be taking the lead on hosting this Friday's Jazz Picnic event! Thank you Marcus!

Each Week our group gets bigger! We had a huge group attend the events and we wined & dined under the stars with perfect weather on the lawn! 

COME JOIN US, It's Free!!!  Bring a bottle of your favorite wine.  Some great food to share and wine and dine under the stars in the beautiful environment of LACMA. Listen to some Jazz. or check out the Museum.  It's an evening of Art/Food/Wine/Jazz.

Bring something to share, either some wine/champagne or some finger eats such as charcuterie, salumi, cheeses, fresh produce such as grapes, dried fruits such as dates or nuts, olives, bread, foods that are easy to eat without utensils... Home made dishes are especially appreciated... pasta salads, lasagna, ethnic cuisines... you are only limited by your imagination! But please leave the chips and 2 buck chuck at home. You're a foodie for goodness sake! 

Bring a blanket/beach towel to sit on.

Friday's party on blankets!

The Jazz starts at 6PM come anytime you can. Darrell and/or Todd'll be there at 5:30 to snag us a spot on the grass, so pop in anytime after work.

Free admission to the museum from 3-8pm, so if you have some time, come early to tour the museum before the concert.

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!

Look For Marcus and the Regulars near the elevators. If the bar is setup again, the bartender might know where we are...

At only 21 years old, Kelly has already shared the stage with legendary artists such as Wynton Marsalis, Phil Woods, and Harry Connick, Jr. in concerts around the world. In 2013, DownBeat Critics Poll named her one of the "alto saxophone rising stars," the youngest artist ever named in the poll.

    OMG--this event, which I thought would be a blow out wake (so few people signed-up) turned out amazing: (1) more people that RSVP'd showed up; (2) the food and wine was better than normal; and ANN (wearing a red top w/black poca-dot dress) made the most YUMMY appetizers I'd ever eaten Anthony Bourdain would have been impressed. And Anne's homemade salmon dip was oh so good, as was the goodies everybody else brought. The music to die for; and we had an AWESOME location, on the grass but close to the stage. The weather was perfect. It was a magical evening. Thanks to all that came to make the night so memorable. My only complaint is I missed Linda's cookies :-)

    Foodies who didn't come: you missed a good one my friends. To top it all: I got a red balloon after all.

    I'm here! Just past the chairs with red balloon see new pic.

    After all that I got a red balloon, lol. I posed a picture. It says meetup and la foodies :-)

    No "red balloon." Look for a Ralph's-like Happy Birthday Balloon or some such. I'm bringing a black micro fiber blanket w/white edge. I'm going to try to find a spot closer to the music than usual. My cell (texts:[masked]

    As a creative person I tend to change my mind a lot but ill pick up wine and healthy snacks

    I would appreciate if those who RSVP'd did the following:

    1. Change to "NO" if you are not coming. No shows may lose group privileges. 2. Indicate what foods/wines you are bringing so we don't each eat a lot of crow :-)

    3. Bring something to sit on; paper plates; plasticware; napkins; bottle opener- unless you like to each like a for legged animal on the street. Any help would be appreciated. I'm new at this! :-)

    I will post here; or email my cell to everybody who is attending so you can find the group. FYI: I'm going to try to find a spot closer to the stage if I can; so don't assume we will be at the same location past the red elevator. I don't have a red balloon; but I will find something suitable--and will let you know what that is here. So check the comment section in the late afternoon on Friday. I should get there around 5:30 pm or 6:00 pm at the latest. Please bring blankets/sheet to sit on. We always can use paper plates, napkins and plasticware--in addition to yummies. Keep watching this spot; and your comments are welcome. Any questions?

    What took so long to post the event? I was worried about you. I'm glad it's on because I've come to really love this meet-up.
