Colin and Marla's Fourth Annual Barbeque

  • May 25, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

This year we shall be returning to the Spanish Balearic island of Ibiza for our theme. Which means dig out your glow-sticks and be ready for some cool "chill-out" music compiled by Mesa's answer to William Orbit (Marla - "who's that?").

In keeping with the theme, food for the evening will be of the tapas variation - cheeses, olives and generally light fare. So if you need substantial sustenance for the evening, suggest you grab a Big Mac en-route.

We shall have plenty of wines and beers (and sodas), food of the aforementioned variety very much welcome. Grill is available if required.

As per custom, Marla will be mixing a theme drink for the evening.

Pool will be there for those wishing to partake of a dip.

Well behaved children welcome (ours will be present, cannot speak for their behavior though).

    Thanks everyone for attending. We had a great time and smashed 2011's record for amount of alcohol consumed per capita. The dogs wore themselves out, one for being the literal party animal, the other from 5 hours of hyper-neurosis! Annabel was still going strong at mid-night, Giles did the sensible thing and retired early.
    Cheers,
    Colin

    Thanks for the clarification, Colin.

    Warning to all. Almost every street in Mesa is under construction. If you are coming from the US 60, the best route is to take Country Club to either University or Brown Rd and turn east one mile to Mesa Drive.

    • Colin B.

      Best route to avoid that mess is 101 to McKellips east to Mesa Dr north. Right on Halifax and right on Hope.

    Bummer. I missed your great party last year also. This year I can't come because I will be in Ibiza - can you believe it.

    • steve

      Colin. Your party is just the same. Lots of booze. Fun crowd. Great food. Blue water. And beautiful topless ..........scenery. Go for it.

    • Colin B.

      Thanks, Steve. Got the first four of those, not so sure re the fifth. Although with plenty of the first you may be right.

      May 8, 2013

  • Colin B.

    Just to emphasise, although I have continued with calling the party a "barbecue", I do not intend grilling this year. The focus will be on lighter food. Of course, the grill is available should anyone want to use it.

    May 8, 2013

  • Lynne G.

    Richard and myself are looking forward to it. We might have to bring our two darlings as well !!!
