We will feature different kinds of jerked meats paired with black beans, coconut rice, fried plantains and mango salsa. We will also feature your ginger ales and ginger beers to accompany our feast, so get brewing people! We will extend our theme into the decorations and music; as well as having a couple of surprises that will complement our theme just fine. So what can you do to help? I am glad you asked! As always this party is a giant pot luck, so if you have a special dish to share we want to try it! It does not even have to match the theme! We rely on our members for appetizers, desserts and side dishes and they have never let us down!Our summer party theme will be grooving to the rhythm of the Caribbean. It is coming THIS SATURDAY, AUG. 3rd at 2:00 PM at Dean’s Pac. Palisades party pad: 1310 Amalfi Drive.
Also this party is really about the beer, we need beer, lots of beer! All kegs donated to the party will be eligible for the best beer of the fest prize and bragging rights to the brewer. We will also be judging the ginger ales and ginger beers as well and recognizing the winner of that category also! So pull out those old Bermuda shorts, weave yourself a thatch hat and come boogie down to our summer jam!
