    Hey Everyone,

    If you have signed up for the Party Gras party and are not coming please change your RS VP to a "no".

    For those of you who are coming the doors will open just before 7:00pm.

    If you have not prepaid you can pay the $20.00 fee at the door.

    There are complimentary masks for anyone who would like one.

    The Redondo Beach Castle is in a residential neighborhood, but there is plenty of nearby street parking. Across the street from the castle is a large athletic field. You will find plenty of parking next to it. There is even a small parking lot. Please be considerate of the neighbors.

    Dinner will be served from 7:00 - 8:00 with a live blues band playing during dinner.

    Our comedy magic show will begin about 8:00 (don't miss it)

    Afterwards we'll dance the night away and our judges will award prizes to best male and female costume.

    If you have any warm clothes or blankets to donate to the Midnight Mission please bring those with you.

    Happy Mardi Gras!

    Hey Everyone,

    I need an accurate count of guests coming to the Mardi Gras Party for the catering.


    You can confirm one of two ways.

    Either prepay through the Explore Long Beach meetup group at this event address:

    or type in the message: confirmed with your RSVP

    Remember this is a charity event and we do not want to buy food for people who are not going to be there.

    Thank you.

    Hi Joseph, I just received your email re: confirmation for attendance and I have already prepaid you for 3 people via paypal. Please note that you are hosting this event for 2 groups and I've rsvp'd on both invitations but, it is just the 3 of us. Will there be a guest list and should I bring my paypal receipts & ID or are we going to meet you at a certain time?

    February 9, 2013

    • Joseph The C.

      Thanks Carolyn, the email went to everyone who has RSVP'd yes for the event. I have you on the prepaid list. Just check in at the party. There is plenty of street parking and even a parking lot directly across the street from the house. Should be a fun night with many meetup groups there and a number of Magic Castle members.

    Sorry - I have just learned I have choir rehearsal on the 12th and can't make the mardi gras.

  • Linda N.

    Can you tell me what kind of food and drink is served in the buffet?

    January 15, 2013

    • Joseph The C.

      Linda, sadly I can't be specific, it depends on the caterer. In the past we've usually had a selection of pasta, pizza, salad, veggies, cheese, and crackers, etc. water and various soft drinks are served. Guests must bring their own alcoholic beverages though people often bring wine to share with others.

      January 15, 2013

  • Joseph The C.

    Just ordered beads and a new mask! Love Mardi Gras.
