Bonfire II

  • Jun 28, 2013 · 7:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

This was our most popular event last summer and I met lots of fun people!  This event is on Friday evening, after a week of work.  Most peeps just wanto to relax by the bonfire while mingling with whoever is to their left or right.  It's always a great time!

So, we are starting a series of summer bonfires and this will be our second.  Let's welcome the warmer weather along with the nice ocean breeze!!!!  Let's sit by the bonfire and enjoy some food and drinks (Please note, NO alcoholic beverage is allow at this state beach).  

Please bring $5 cash to participate in this event. Please also feel free to bring some munchies to share and something to drink.  We will bring the firewood, some munchies, water, sodas, hot dogs, buns, marshmallows, graham cracker, chocolate and condiments. If you need dinner, pick up something and eat it at the beach.  It's quite relaxing!

Please do bring blanket/chair to sit on and warm clothing in case it gets a bit nippy.

I used to bring games but realized most people enjoy each others company more and/or making s'mores and hot dogs.  I will just make sure we have enough hot dogs, buns, condiments, and everything needed to make that delicious s'mores.

This event is on a Friday evening and most of us probably worked all week and just want to relax.  I can't figure out a better way to relax than this.  :)  Join me and lost of fun people for some ocean breeze and warm bonfire while meeting some great people.  See you on May 31st at Dockweiler State Beach.

Parking:  Between $6 - $10 per car.  Try to carpool.  Dockweiler State Beach closes at 10PM and they stop letting cars into the parking lot as early as 9:15PM. Arrive a little bit early to park in the parking lot. If you choose to park on the street, please remember right at 10PM, the city tickets all vehicle parked on the street (last year, the ticket was $68 and I think it's $73 this year). I strongly advise you to park in the parking lot as you won't get a ticket and so that you can stay later.

PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT YOUR MEETUP SETTINGS ALLOW YOU TO RECEIVE EMAIL FROM ME.  I am going to provide directions to the confirmed attendees via their Meetup email. If you do not have your email settings up to date or if you have disabled email you will not receive the directions.    :)

    Hi everyone, this is Anna, the organizer of tonight's bonfire. We have a very minor change of plans. Our bonfire is going to be next to lifeguard tower 51. We will be inbetween 51 and 52, though much closer to 51. If you go to the end of the second parking lot we will be right there. See you tonight! :)

    Hi just joined this group and this will be my first meet up. Anyone carpooling from San Fernando valley? I have a bike but can't use GPS while riding and I'm not familiar with the area so I would like to avoid getting lost if possible.

      Check out Daniel Weinstein's post below. He's in Sherman Oaks. I'll be heading back to SFV when the bonfire ends. You can ride back with me if you're not staying for the after-party.

      Connie nothing to fear, your friends are here! I have been in meetup for years now and have had so many wonderful experiences. I've met some of my best friends on meetup. It's like jumping into a pool, it seems cold at first but when you jump in, it's oh so enjoyable. So jump in and have fun. If it helps, I'm totally new to the LA meetup scene and I know no one here so look out for me. Cheers Hila

      This is one of my favorite Meetup groups, Connie, and one of my favorite events! Just tell the 1st person you see to point Anna, or Derald, out to you. They're usually up front by the table. Everyone is super friendly. :-)
