How: Brian and Bjorn will buy some standards [burger (cow or vegetarian), steak, buns, sauces, cheese, onions, pickles, veggies, soft drinks] as well as coal and flammables.

First Group Dinner

Complicated. The Brewhouse requires us to choose 4 entrees (they still allow us to pick sides and beer...). Please go to their website and pick three, four entrees that you might fancy in order of your preference (and write the down after your name), and I will see that I can get anyone happy. Sorry for the hassle. Please do so by 6:30 tonight, so I can get back to them. Thanks! B.

Date: Thursday May 22
Time: 7:30 pm, Bjorn suggests the Brewhouse Brewery
Address: 229 W Montecito St, Downtown Santa Barbara

Please sign up. Those needing rides, or offering rides, will meet at the KITP front entrance at 7pm.
