NO CHIPS, NO FREELOADERS!!

-Why Thursday? Because it's not that crowded.

- Kids and pets are welcome, but please keep your furry friends under control, away from the people food.

- Friends and family are also welcome, but please ask them to bring some food or wine also.

We will have it at the end of the beach where the security wont see us.
The entrance is all the way at the end where the cars turn around.

You walk 20 yards and it opens up to a white sand beach.

Several landmarks. Look for a Flag or Kite on a Pole,

We hope you can join us on this summer day ! Let's have some fun!

 

***We will have name tags for all my events. So I get to know your name and makes it easy to mingle.  Two no show policy will be applied.

If you do not adhere to any of this please do not attend.

**RSVP ETIQUETTE: Since we have limited space I ask that you (and your guest) be considerate of others and commit to your RSVP. Your no-show may prevent someone else from attending and you from attending other limited dinner events like this.

Fabulous time !!! With J slinging pulled pork and slaw delight, Jim and Sue bringing the curry and rice, Karl and Mike smoking those duck legs, E=MC2 grilling all night, 2 kalbi beef short ribs to choose from, some sun, some set, the beach, Keoni with all kinds of implements of funstruction, conversations galore, smiling faces and even a cake, it was a grand ole night.

Kate **

Had an awesome time! Keoni - great event! And you know it's a true foodie event when a beach BBQ includes such simple dishes like duck confit, spare ribs, and home made flan. :) Campfire under the stars, closed by really bad, but fun, singing, was the cherry on top!

  • Stephanie B

    I don't need to be waitlisted - signed up for another group. I can bring a pear frangipan tart and/or possibly my death by chocolate cake (chocolate cake is soaked in chambord, has chocolate mousse between layers, sides coated in hazelnuts, and topped with home-made truffles and drizzled with dark chocolate ganache)...but only if people show interest, cause it is a huge pain in the arse to make.

    • Amiga D.

      Sounds amazing!
