WE ARE ONE! Beach Picnic!

Time to celebrate our 1st anniversary! And we will do it by redoing our first ever event - craft beer cans and beach games! We had about 6 show up and I think we can do a lot better this time!

Siesta Key Public Beach picnic area. BYOBC. I highly recommend Total Wine on University for a great selections of Craft Cans. Our group has grown exponentially since that first event and so has the selection of great beer in a can.  Be prepared to trade cold cans so we can all have a good variety.

So here is the deal:  We will take over some picnic tables and grills.  Bring whatever you want for the picnic.  There will be plenty of us around who will grill for you if you want or do it yourself.  I will have plenty of charcoal. Side dishes to share are appreciated!

We are going to have cornhole and a couple other games.  Please let me know if you can bring any beach games.  Extra cornholes appreciated!  There is a playground so you can even bring the youngins if you want.

If you want to avoid parking issues and the breathalizer, SCAT runs a bus right to the public beach and you can park at the mall on Siesta Drive or at the Sarasota Pavillion.

No excuses, come on out and celebrate the friends that we have made over the past year!

Cheers and Better Beers,

Jim
