New Meetup: Brain Food Share and Tell SunDay

From: user 8.

Announcing a new Meetup for Los Angeles Brain & Consciousness Group!

What: Brain Food Share and Tell SunDay

When: Sunday, August 29,[masked]:00 PM

Where: Manhattan Beach Pier
Manhattan Beach Blvd
Manhattan Beach, CA 90266

Let?s take advantage of the warm summer days and have a fun SunDay together at the beach with a Brain Food Share and Tell theme.

We all know that brain health translates to healthier bodies. This meetup offers us the opportunity to further self-educate and share our newfound information with our fellow members on the benefits of eating healthy Brain Foods. We also have so many interesting and nice members who have a lot to contribute to our group, so I thought a casual social setting in a fun summer atmosphere would be a nice change.

Share and Tell:
So choose your brain food (some suggestions are listed below), research it, and bring your information to the meetup along with a small sample for each of us to taste, like an almond per person, or slice of banana. If you choose something like peas, you are welcome to bring raw shucked peas with a pea per person, or make a pea salad to share with a teaspoon per person... however you are comfortable contributing.

The information on your chosen Brain Food should include anything you can dig up on it: Why it is good for the brain or what the brain does in reaction to it and the physiological or psychological results:
- What part of the brain anatomy it effects
- How these effects move through those parts of the brain.
If it?s pertinent, you can also include:
- When ? or ? how long it takes for that food to take effect within the brain, like how often you
need to eat it and in how many doses before it?s effective
- and perhaps the Who ? or ? what kind of brains or people it effects, and the why of that.

A two are three minute sharing will be sufficient, but the more information, the merrier.

Please post your Brain Food choice at the time you RSVP to avoid doubling.

I?ll supply the plates and forks for the samples, but do bring your own:

Mat to sit on
Meal or food
Beach chair

Bring your beach ball, rubber tube, floatie wings and any other Sun Fun Beach toy that floats your boat.

There are many affordable restaurants and deli?s within short walking distance of the beach where you can pick up a meal, or get one later. There are even a lot of sports bars if you really must sneak away for a minute or two to get the latest Dodgers or Angels score.

There are no beach entrance fees. Restroom, shower, and changing facilities are on the north side of the Pier entrance.

Free Parking:
I recommend the free street parking around Highview Avenue and Manhattan Beach Blvd. It?s about a 7 block walk down to the Pier. Look for a Stake with colored fabrics and B&C emblem near the 1st Life Guard Station to the Right (north) of the Pier.

Paid Parking:
There are two Public Parking Garagses to the East and West of Manhattan Avenue along Center Place near 12th Street.

There are also lots of metered street parking everywhere, though it?ll probably be easier finding a space in the parking garages.

We need volunteers to help contribute for the day:
- Stake for the B&C sign
- As many beach umbrellas as you can to share. We don?t want anyone to arrive
a marshmallow and leave a lobster!

Come with your bathing suit gear, or just come and sit in a comfy t-shirt and shorts. I?m going to drag my overweight lumpy white cellulite ridden body down to the Pier to air it out, so bring yours too! And don?t worry, Greek gods and goddesses will not be turned away! Since no one will be there to shoo us out, we can stay until the cows come home, or even get an early evening drink (we could stand to lose a few brain cells with all the brain fuel we?ll be getting) at the nearby lovely Shade Hotel.

Even though our bodies may become groggy from Sun soak, at least we?ll have Brain Food to keep our wits sharp!

Please post your Brain Food choice at the time you RSVP to avoid doubling.
