In celebration of my lovely wife, Tikibelle's (mmhmm)th birthday, we are having an all-day beach-party, picnic, and traditional tiki beach burn at the fire rings at Cabrillo Beach in San Pedro. I'll add maps, directions, etc soon, but I wanted to get this thread posted as a placeholder - Save The Date!

It will be a Red, White & Blue Luau, in honor of the Day of Independance which I believe the Founding Fathers created in anticipation of the birth of my wife, who is the most Independant woman I know, God Bless Her! We will have someone arrive in the morning to hold one of the fire rings on the Pacific side of the narrow isthmus, and I know there are barbecue stations just a short mosey over to the harbor side.

Let's potluck it, and bring your own grillables, plus whatever you'd like to share. I'll bring some extra Spicy Coconut Chicken to share as well. We'll be there the whole day, and as night falls, the fire pit will begin.

Not sure yet about the rules about burning pallets at this beach. I do know there is no alcohol allowed, (Just like Huntington), so we will have to be creative with spiking our punch again (Just like Huntington). Polynesiac is going to look into more of the rules and regulations for the site. If someone would like to donate a tiki to burn, like last year, that would be most appreciated. The cops at Cabrillo haven't learned about us yet, so I doubt that Crazy Al will get carted away to jail. (This is incentive for Crazy Al to attend, hint hint).

I'm hoping that many of you are free that weekend and can join us for the celebration! It should be a memorable one.

Thanks,

Sabu & Tikibelle

The Mr and I will be there... IF Tikibelle promises to wear her tiara from the Arizona Prom! Should go nice with your bikini!!
We're bringing a few kids, probably, too.
It'll be great to see everyone and soak up some sun!

Kids are welcome!

I'll work on the tiara. Can't promise anything on the bikini. Can't even acknowledged that I read that. Don't objectify me. I am fragile.

Okay, Hanford and I are in, as long as we can work out a few logistics! What are the options for spending the night down there?

In! (obviously)

for those looking for a place to stay in 'pedro and if you can't find a friend who'll let you crash on their couch/floor check out this link of hotels in 'pedro:

http://www.sanpedro.com/spcom/hotlodg.htm

The pacific inn is the closest to cabrillo beach, but always looks kinda sleezy, the nicest is the Marina hotel and also very close to cabrillo beach.

For those of you worried about Cabrillo beach recieving an "F" on the heal the bay water quality chart...FEAR NOT! that is the inner beach (harbor side - no waves and TONS of cat and bird poop), the outer beach, where the burn will take place, always gets an "A". Tim, don't feel bashful - you bring your bikini, I'll bring my speedo and I'll race you out to the bouy! The waves here usually suck in the summer (we face south), but you can bring your longboard for 2-3 second rides, if ya like.

Parking is $7.00 all day at the beach and usually fills up by 1:00pm on a Saturday in the summer. I suggest parking above the beach and walking down - you'll save yourself a headache. Stephen M White drive (what the beach is off of) also gets closed down to beach traffic when the parking lot fills up, so if you go up 36th street from Pacific you can park in the neighborhoods on Denison Ave and Kerckhoff Ave. The other option is to park at the marina on 22nd street and ride the "trolly" to the beach, but I think that stops running pretty early, so you may want to make arrangements to get a ride back to your car if you stay into the evening.

I still haven't got the official rules and regulaions of what's okay and what's not (so we know what rules we're breaking), but I've seen peopl burn all kinds of crazy shit. If you bring a pallet to burn, please break it up and make sure it's REAL wood with no sealant - cause the fake stuff stinks like hell. and your mashmallow smores then tast like it. Bring a tiki to burn!
It is a dry beach, but it seems as though if you're smart enough to hide your alcohol then you get left alone. People are always having burns on the weekends...that's all I'm sayin' about that. It is 'Pedro, after all.

I work over at the Aquarium behind the beach where we'll be, so be sure to go check out our local"beachy" aquarium that has been around for 70 years. We only have local species and are world reknown as the "education aquarium". and to plug it a little further...we're FREE! it's a suggested donation only (we're funded through the city of LA recs and parks). Also be sure to check out the Cabrillo Beach Bath House that was newly renovated. It's one of the original LA area bathhouses (I think the other one was in Venice), but It's been in here since 1935. I'm more than happy to give little talks about the history of the area before everyone gets too plasterd.....ummm...on fruit juice.

I'll see if I can get some maps and stuff up a little later on.

Yes, it's a great place -- I was a jr. volunteer there waaaaaay back in 1982 when no one had heard of Frank Gehry (yes, he designed it). Don't forget to do the Grunion Dance!

Cabrillo aquarium is indeed cool. They have (or had the last time I was there), a relatively large mantis shrimp. Very cool, and brightly colored. Lots of fun, and not a very common aquarium species.
