Back by popular demand, this year’s annual Culver City Historical Society Picnic and meeting on Wednesday, July 20 will be catered by the city’s own Santa Maria Barbeque Restaurant. A savory dinner will be cooked in the picnic area in Veterans Memorial Park by the restaurant’s owner, Jim Rodrigues, who will demonstrate the special techniques that have made his Downtown Culver City eatery so popular. “Chef” Rodriques 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 and reservations are required. The cost is $30 at the door. All CCHS members, their family and friends, and the public are invited to attend.
