This is not a meeting, just a great way to socialize as a group.

The event starts at 4:00 pm. The band starts at 4:30 pm. Get there when you can, many work and can't get there until a little later which is understandable.

(Stock picture from from Gillespie Field Cafe's photo album.)

Attend if you'd like to meet fellow flying enthusiasts. It's an opportunity to get up close to planes on display. It's possible they might have another raffle for a free flight at the event.

If you prefer just to kick back, there's seating in the covered patio to watch planes take off and land. You might want to bring a chair just in case seating if taken.

The Cafe offers a light menu, beer and wine for those of you who drink. There will be an opportunity to dance on the tarmac. Appetizers planned for this event are Fish Tacos with Avocado, Bacon Cheese Sliders, Special Salad and more...

Music by The Bayou Brothers Band - Cajun, Zydeco & Blues

The Bayou Brothers Band (Description cut and pasted):

With a sound straight out of Louisiana's dance clubs, bayou festivals and backyard crawfish boils, the BAYOU BROTHERS will rock you right on into "Fat Tuesday" with their extensive experience and endless enthusiasm to deliver a rousing, rollicking, heart thumpin', foot stompin' musical gumbo y'all won't soon forget!!!

Start with a blend of accordion, keyboards, guitar, bass, drums and rubboard, add three-part harmonies, mix it up with a lot of rockin' Zydeco, blues, R&B and that great Mardi Gras sound, toss in dazzling showmanship and a big old dance floor and you get the hot, spicy musical jambalaya that IS the BAYOU BROTHERS!!!

For specific questions please contact the cafe directly. Gillespie Field Cafe, 619 448-0415,

Please note: 1st Friday is a recurring event until further notice based on the discretion of Gillespie Field Cafe. I'll keep posting it monthly as long as they offer it.
