YOUR HOME COOKED MEALS PREFERRED. Please share your favorite food, perhaps your country's most popular food!

•••••Besides food and drinks, please prepare•••••
• Plates, utensils (esp folks always go fast), serving tools, cups
= I GOT A LOT OF PLASTIC FOLK/SPOON/KNIFE this year.
• Aluminum foil (if BBQ), cooking tools and knives, charcoal, lighter
• Trash bags, paper towels (wet one is useful later)
• Coolers or Insulated bags and Ice
• Tupperware, Ziploc bags (to take leftovers)
• Hats, Sunblock creams/spray
• Picnic sheets (at the grass area), parasols
• Toys & Games, beachballs and frisbees, etc
• Music (Speakers), can someone play music/sing?
**If BBQing, please cook your own meat, don't expect others to cook for your food.
***Alcohol, smoking, vending, inflatable bouncers and outside grills are not allowed in Santa Monica parks! (There are BBQ grills by table area.)

Much appreciated if you can come out to help us grab tables early... like 8am (we will make breakfast for the early comers)... and also help clean up at the end. We probably give the leftover to the homeless people.

PARKING INFORMATION
Protected content
There is very limited METERED PARKING on the entry grounds of Burton W. Chace Park which has a maximum LIMIT TIME OF 90 MINUTES and costs 25 cents for every 10 minutes. (I'd say this is for loading only.) There are three large LA County parking lots on Mindanao Way towards the entrance to Burton W. Chace Park and all of those lots provide parking for a FLAT FEE AS POSTED with no daily time limit These official parking facilities are marked as LA County Parking Lots #4, #5, and #77. Each of those three lots has attendance and charges the same daily FEE AS POSTED. The parking fee is typical $8 to $10 (cash only on concert dates) and varies based on the day and time and is clearly posted at the entrance to each of the three lots. There is also a FREE BEACH SHUTTLE on Concert in the Park nights, and for more information on the schedules and locations for the Beach Shuttle, go to marinadelrey.lacounty.gov.

Please give us any suggestions. Thanks! See you soon!! ;-)
