Single Parents - BBQ Potluck Meet and Greet!

  • August 17, 2014 · 11:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

** UPDATE:

Please call my cell phone once you get here, [masked]

ENTRANCE: There are four entrances into the building. Please go to the front (Curtis St.) and go to the right door entrance. You will see a key pad on the wall. Please dial my phone number on the keypad,[masked]-8469. I will buzz the door and you can then take the elevators up to the 6th floor BBQ/Swimming Pool area. 

PARKING: the great thing about having an activity on Sunday in town is parking. The building has several parking stalls on the first floor. You can park there, but must register on the first floor so that the building knows you are there visiting us. If all of the spots are taken up there is plenty of metered street parking. I am pretty sure that Sundays are free as I have had other activities here and no one has ever gotten a ticket. If you want to use my parking spot just let me know.

FOOD/DRINKS: I am assuming that if you didn't comment that you will not be bringing anything or maybe a bento/food for just your family. No worries. We are headed out today to purchase some hamburgers and drinks. It sounds like we have plenty of others who are also chipping in, but there is always a need for ice.

HOUSE RULES: One other thing, the BBQ/Pool area has some house rules, but the main ones are: 

• Children must be accompanied by an adult

• No food in the pool area

• No large toys in the pool, i.e. large inflatable, super soaker guns, etc...

• Others are more common sense, i.e. no running, rough-housing, etc...

• You must have fun!

BATHROOM/CHANGE ROOM: If you don't want to walk around in your bathing suit all day there is a change room as well as a men's/women's bathroom there as well. In fact, there is a sauna there too if you feel the need to sweat.

Also, please let me know if you need help carrying stuff up as I or someone is more than happy to help. 

LOOKING FORWARD TO MEETING EVERYONE!

*************************************************

Aloha Single Parents. Jon has given me the "power" to help us get organized. Let's get together for a potluck at my condo. We have a BBQ area and swimming pool/jacuzzi for everyone to enjoy. Plus there is plenty of parking and it is centrally located in Honolulu. It will also give us an opportunity to get to know one another better.

We can even organize some competitive games so the kids can create new friends. 

Once we get a RSVP list I will share the address of the location. 

If you are attending please let me know what dish you can bring. 

Mahalo!

  • Shalala

    Lucas just started a fever. (Like 20 minutes ago) I'm so disappointed because we are really excited to meet people, but I don't want to expose everyone & he probably can't hang with swimming right now.

    August 16

    • Félix

      We understand Shana. Hang in there and we hope to meet you both at a future event.

  • Anastacia

    We're going to try to make it after church, so not until after noon, depending on how the baby is doing with the day. We will bring cookies and maybe chili too

    August 16

    • Anastacia

      I forgot to ask, is there a microwave? I'll be busy in the morning so the chili will be cooked tonight and will be refrigerated

      August 16

    • Félix

      Aloha Anastacia. I don't think there is one, but let me check. Either way please bring it as I can always bring a pot and cook it on the grill. Mahalo!

      August 16

  • Doreen

    Ha Ha Ha, that is hilarious!

    2 · August 16

    I just updated the information above. Please let me know if you have any questions or need any help. I will be easy to find when you come up to the swimming pool area. If you see a blond hair, blue-eyed, physically fit male about 6'3" tall...I will be the other guy standing right next to him.

    I really wish I could make this one, but unfortunately my son and I are volunteering at The Pacific Aviation Museum's Little Biggest Airshow on that day.

    August 2

    • Melinda B.

      Since we're coming late, I could bring some chips or a dessert maybe? Just let me know what you still need more.

      August 13

    • Félix

      Wonderful! Looking forward to seeing you there Melinda.

    Aloha ladies. Looks like we are going to have a great turnout. We have 10 parents, 9 boys and 4 girls coming. As for food we have Macaroni/Cheese, Cake, Fruit & Cheese Platter, as well as 2 Pizzas. If you haven't stated what you are bringing could you please let me know. If it is a hardship also let me know as I want to make sure that there is enough food for everyone. We still need - plates, cups, utensils, ice, drinks and more food. Also, I have partnerships with several local agencies. These coalitions provide me with books, magazines, baby formula and more. I plan on bringing books/magazines for the kids, but if you need baby formula please let me know so that I know to bring it. Even if it is not for yourself, but rather for a friend they are more than welcome to it. Lastly, I have posted the address above (Royal Capitol Plaza). I will send you more information soon regarding parking and how to enter the building. I am looking forward to meeting everyone!

    August 12

  • Doreen

    Me again. We can make it at 11am after all. I have decided to bring a couple of large pizzas. Thanks.

    1 · August 10

  • Shalala

    We are still in hotels right now so we will bring something straight from the grocery, maybe fruit & cheese platter with bread/crackers.

    August 2

    • Shalala

      We can still bring food. Not a big deal. We will however, have to leave around 2:30-ish as we have a 4:30pm wedding in Ko'Olina to attend after. :)

      August 9

    • Félix

      No worries. See ya there!

      August 9

  • Doreen

    We can make it although we'll be there more like noon than 11. Thanks, looking forward to meeting up with everyone again.

    August 2

    • Michelle D.
