The 5th Annual Three Island BBQ

The 5th Annual Three Island BBQ

Kon-Tiki II, The Journey Begins

Live Legendary DJ & Dancing - Wednesday July 9th, 2014

The House Committee cordially invites you to enjoy our 5th Annual Three Island BBQ with fellow Members and guests. This year’s evening will feature food and drink from the Polynesian Islands, with dancing and music provided by one of New York’s best party DJs, Victor Lesser a principal of Manhattan City Music. Victor is also a band leader and musician.

Very casual island and summer attire is suggested. The most originally dressed festive man and woman in the theme of Kon-Tiki, Peru or the Polynesian Islands will each receive a special door prize, a high quality print of the water color seen above by member Steve Burnett. Copies of the print will also be available for purchase. This year's BBQ will feature a raffle with a priceless prize, a description and picture of which are at the bottom of this page.

Highlights from the menu include: Hors D’oeuvres of Miniature Beef Hamburger Sliders and mini grilled Mahi-Mahi Tostadas with Polynesian style tartar sauce; Pulled BBQ Pork served with a Kaiser roll and BBQ Chicken accompanied with several summer salad choices including some other traditional BBQ fare; and a coconut dessert surprise (we will have vegetarian offerings). Our special drink will be a rum Mai Tai and we will also feature a full premium bar and soft drinks.

As this is one of our most popular events we encourage you to reserve your tickets now and invite guests. Guests may also make reservations by referring a member’s name and using their own credit card.
