Bonfire 2.0

This was our most popular event last summer and I met lots of fun people!  This event is on Friday evening, after a week of work.  Most peeps just wanto to relax by the bonfire while mingling with whoever is to their left or right.  It's always a great time!

So, we are starting a series of summer bonfires and this will be our second.  Let's welcome the warmer weather along with the nice ocean breeze!!!!  Let's sit by the bonfire and enjoy some food and drinks (Please note, NO alcoholic beverage is allow at this state beach).  

Please bring $5 cash to participate in this event. Please also feel free to bring some munchies to share and something to drink.  We will bring the firewood, some munchies, water, sodas, hot dogs, buns, marshmallows, graham cracker, chocolate and condiments. If you need dinner, pick up something and eat it at the beach.  It's quite relaxing!

Please do warm clothing in case it gets a bit nippy.

I used to bring games but realized most people enjoy each others company more and/or making s'mores and hot dogs.  I will just make sure we have enough hot dogs, buns, condiments, and everything needed to make that delicious s'mores.

This event is on a Friday evening and most of us probably worked all week and just want to relax.  I can't figure out a better way to relax than this.  :)  Join me and lost of fun people for some ocean breeze and warm bonfire while meeting some great people.  See you on May 31st at Dockweiler State Beach.

After the bonfire we will head over to the Custom Hotel for the Bonfire Afterparty!  The Afterparty is posted on this group as a separate event.  You should also come out to the Afterparty to continue the fun and meet even more people!

Parking:  Between $6 - $10 per car.  Try to carpool.  Dockweiler State Beach closes at 10PM and they stop letting cars into the parking lot as early as 9:15PM. Arrive a little bit early to park in the parking lot. If you choose to park on the street, please remember right at 10PM, the city tickets all vehicle parked on the street (last year, the ticket was $68 and I think it's $73 this year). I strongly advise you to park in the parking lot as you won't get a ticket and so that you can stay later.

PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT YOUR MEETUP SETTINGS ALLOW YOU TO RECEIVE EMAIL FROM ME.  I am going to provide directions to the confirmed attendees via their Meetup email. If you do not have your email settings up to date or if you have disabled email you will not receive the directions.    :)

This event is crossed-posted on a dozen meetup groups including my main group ( In order to keep the number of attendees for this event manageable, I am reserving 25 spots for this group.

    Hi everyone, this is Anna, the organizer of tonight's bonfire. We have a very minor change of plans. Our bonfire is going to be next to lifeguard tower 51. We will be inbetween 51 and 52, though much closer to 51. If you go to the end of the second parking lot we will be right there. See you tonight! :)

    Hi Everyone. Sorry to close the RSVP here. I lost track of the last bonfire and by the time I counted the number of attendees, there were over 600 RSVPs across 12 meetups. In order to prevent this from happening again, please RSVP via meetup group since I check that group daily. Thanks.
