MIDSUMMER BBQ

Join us for a low-key day of fun and relaxation at Broadway Field in Hawthorne!

We'll have the BBQs going all day long, some kick-ball, bocce and other field games, boardgames, music and karaoke, trivia, and a few cool things to raffle.

Just added! David Neilsen will be there to perform The Call of Cthulhu at high noon!

Think Geek Pride Day, but turn it down a few notches!

Come early and stay for the day, or stop by whenever you like! $5 per person covers BBQ essentials and the cost of renting the venue.

Feel free to bring something for a pot-luck table!
