6/27 UPDATE - Guests, Time Change & Parking:
GUESTS: Ladies, I am so sorry I cannot accommodate your requests for extra guests. I have received many emails asking if a +1, +2, can just come. I would LOVE to say yes. However, I have to say No. My home can only hold so many, and there are still 11 people on the waiting list who would have to get bumped up before I could start adding new RSVP's, so please understand that for now, RSVPs are closed and you are only confirmed for the number you originally RSVP'd for.
TIME CHANGE: The start time has changed to 3:00pm. I just found out that the final barricades near my home don't go into effect until 3:30pm. If you can arrive by 3:00pm, you will be allowed to come straight through to my house. Stop by and pick up a pass before parking. With a pass you will be allowed to drive around without being stopped while looking for a parking spot.
THOSE COMING LATER: If you arrive after 3:30pm, there will be an officer on my cross street (Forest Ave / Howard Street). If asked where you're headed, let the officer know you are heading to my home to pick up a Residential Guess Vehicle Pass for parking. Stop by, grab a pass and then find parking.
PARKING AT CAROL'S: carpool time has changed from 3:45pm to 2:45pm. For those of you who made plans to carpool with Carol, she's going to email you personally to confirm the new meetup time.
To cut down on traffic, parking, and passes you are more than WELCOME to meet at Carol's and carpool with others or drive others. If carpooling from Carol's, she's leaving her HOUSE @ 2:45. Carol's house, it's in Pasadena as well, 2 miles from Dee's place - 736 E. Howard St. If you need a ride, START TALKING TO YOUR SISTA's.
I NEED A VEHICLE COUNT:
Please indicate in your RSVP if you will be driving alone or with someone. I need to make sure there will be enough passes.
Take my # with you.

Revised UPDATE 6/25 :
Fireworks begin at 9:05pm. We'll plan on having the food packed up, dishes done, and ready to go before the fireworks start. Getting out of the city is easiest if you either leave immediately after the firework show or hang around for another hour while traffic thins out.
Please recheck your calendars ASAP and determine whether you are committed to attending the event, and if not, please change your RSVP to "no" by FRIDAY, JUNE 29 AT NOON. and let someone on the waiting list have your spot.
THANKS!!! We look forward to seeing everyone at the event, it will be a blast with food, drinks, games, and lots of laughs as usual - AND FIREWORKS!!
ALSO NOTE: Pasadena is zoned a non-firework area. If you are tempted to bring sparklers or other types of fireworks, don't. For years we have been trying to light our little sparklers and always get caught. They just take them from you. No tickets or anything like that.
SIDE NOTE: all are welcome. Bring a date, the kids or whoever. Everyone should be allowed to enjoy the show...
