PG Holiday Party: SATURDAY, December 10th!

Our annual Holiday Party is this coming Saturday (Dec 10th)!!

Time: The party begins at 6pm.
Location: Neil Saund’s duplex,  12966 Rubens Ave. Los Angeles, CA
(It’s the house on the SE corner of Alla Rd. and Rubens Ave.)

WE NEED YOUR HELP to pull it all together.  As with all our parties, we count on club members to volunteer to help out.  There are a number of ways you can volunteer to help.  We need help with set-up and clean up, we need members to bring potluck dishes for our feast, we need members to donate beer and we need assorted equipment.

Potluck and Food
The menu should reflect past Holiday Parties featuring delicious meats including Carbonnades ala Flamande, roast & deep-fried turkeys, spiced ham, and much more!  As is customary with our holiday party, this is a potluck event; the club supplies some of the main dishes BUT we count on members to provide more main dishes, the side dishes, the salads, and the desserts.  So if you have a favorite family holiday recipe and want to share it with the rest of us, this is your time to shine! If you’d like to volunteer food for the party contact: Mimi & Audrey at [email protected].

Please, please bring your dishes in DISPOSABLE containers (not glass or plastic containers that need to be returned).   Inexpensive aluminum trays and containers come in many sizes and are available at any supermarket.

Also, there is no need to bring serving utensils as we will have plenty!

If you must bring your own containers, then please remember to label any dishes (tops and bottoms), utensils, etc. that you bring so that we can get them back to you.  Ideally, leave the lids at home and use aluminum foil as substitute lid.

Of course, we need beer for this event – lots of beer!  Or mead!  Or cider!  We’re counting on you to provide it. So pull out your kegs and dig deep in your closet for those old tasty bottled treasures and bring them along!  Please let us know what and how much homebrew you’re planning on bringing.  Loaner kegs are available for those who are not so equipped. And, bottles of beer are always welcome.

Any of you who have already volunteered kegs should drop them off at the shop by Thursday, Dec 8th or bring them to Neil’s Saturday (Dec 10th) afternoon before the party.

We’ll be dispensing a lot of beer and will need more taps, jockey boxes and dispensing equipment than we currently have.  If you can volunteer dispensing equipment or can bring your new club jockey box, please let Carl know.

Please remember to label any kegs or dispensing equipment that you bring so that we can get them back to you.

If you’d like to volunteer beer for the party, contact Carl Townsend at [email protected].

We’re looking for some assorted equipment.  Please let us know if you can volunteer any of the following:

  • Jockey boxes/beer dispensing equipment
  • CO2 tanks
  • Firewood

Any of you who will be volunteering equipment should try to bring it to Neil’s on Sunday, Dec 10th in the afternoon before the party.

Again, please remember to label any equipment that you bring so that we can get your equipment back to you.

If you’d like to volunteer equipment contact: Carl at [email protected] or Mimi & Audrey at [email protected].

And finally, if you’re volunteering equipment, kegs or food, plan on picking up your items at the Sunday clean up. We really don’t have any capacity to store items that are not picked up.

Clean Up
On Sunday, Dec 11th at 11am, we’ll meet at Neil’s duplex to clean up after the party.  We always need lots of people to help with clean up and the more we get, the faster it goes.
If you’d like to volunteer for set up or clean up contact: Mimi & Audrey at [email protected].
