Back by popular demand, this year’s annual Culver City Historical Society Picnic & meeting on Wednesday, July 20, 2011, will be catered by the city’s own Santa Maria Barbecue Co. A savory dinner will be cooked in the picnic area of Veterans Memorial Park (above) by the restaurant’s owner, Jim Rodrigues, who will demonstrate the special techniques that have made his downtown Culver City eatery so popular.
“Chef” Rodrigues will grill choice tri-tip beef roasts and juicy, plump chickens, which he will serve with his special chili beans, potato salad, green salad, garlic bread, homemade cookies and soft drinks.
Picnic-goers will meet at 5:30 p.m. for soft drinks and conversation, and dinner will be served from 6:30-7:30 p.m.
The price for this picnic dinner is $25 per person ($30 at the door), and reservations are required. All CCHS members, their family and friends, and the public are invited to attend. For reservations, please call (310) 253-6941, email us, or send your name, phone number, and a check for $25 per person to Culver City Historical Society, P.O. Box 3428, Culver City, CA 90231-3428. Deadline for reservations is Wednesday, July 13, 2011.
The event will feature festive barbecue music by the local RAZZMATAZZ Dixieland Jazz Ensemble, and there will be free gifts and lots of door prizes to add to the fun.
The CCHS board will hold a brief meeting to discuss upcoming programs and projects, as well as updates on the many activities at the Archive and Resource Center (ARC), and the ARC will be open for brief tours.
