Labor Day weekend, the last official weekend of summer is already upon us. For those of you who want to avoid traffic and will be staying in the city over this long weekend, let's continue to enjoy this warm weather while it is still here.
This time we will be meeting at Brooklyn Bridge Park which has great views of the Manhattan skyline, and there are grills available for anyone who wants to BBQ. These are real charcoal grills guys, so those of you hankering to get some end of summer BBQ on this is your chance. And here are some 1950's BBQ ideas:
loads of 1950's recipes plus grilling (see index) http://books.google.com/books?id=XI8G_I1TazYC&pg=PA7&lpg=PA7&dq=1950's+grilling+recipes&source=bl&ots=8sXk65Uv7c&sig=GzgPlt_CRFtBIyCTgINtCEsXkJY&hl=en&sa=X&ei=LIfpU9-SMc2dygT5_IKIDQ&ved=0CIEBEOgBMA0#v=onepage&q=1950's%20grilling%20recipes&f=false
This is a 1950's themed picnic. To participate you must prepare a dish that was common in American 1950's households. If you Google 1950's recipes you will surely get a ton of results, but I have included some links anyway. The last link is for fun, but who am I to stop you if you really think you might enjoy making a salad loaf......
You will probably get thirsty so you might also want to bring some beverages too. If you don't want to sit on the grass you should also bring something to sit on (blankets, towels, chairs, etc) They also have umbrella tables at this park available, but I am not sure if we will be able to secure one
if you would like to bring other picnic related activities feel free to do so. Dogs are welcome.
The fine print:
Please pick out what you would like to cook and confirm that you can make this event on Aug 31st. Let us know which dish you want to cook in your RSVP so we can avoid any repeats. Each cook may bring one non-cook to enjoy the meal!
Cancellations: Please be 100% committed to attending this event, and cancel 48 hours in advance. There is limited space and each member puts in a lot of time, effort, and planning into each of these events. Late cancellations affect the group as a whole. If you cancel with less than 48 hours notice, or are a no show you could be removed from the group.
