Jim Rodrigues, owner of Culver City’s Santa Maria Barbeque restaurant (9552 Washington Blvd), prepared a genuine Santa Maria style barbeque for this year’s Annual CCHS Picnic which was held at the Vets Park picnic area, on Wednesday evening, July 21st.
Jim himself oversaw the barbequing which included tender Choice-Grade tri-tip beef and plump Grade A chickens, his special chili beans, potato salad, green salad, garlic bread, Santa Maria’s special BBQ sauce (if you really have to have sauce), home made-cookies and soft drinks.
A special treat this year was the performance of The Razzmatazz Dixieland jazz ensemble which performed festive music throughout the event.
The highlight of the evening was the announcement of the winner of the Society’s logo competition. Robert Wolfe, a local artist and long-time Culver City resident won the honors.
