Hola, mi gente!

It's that time again! Every year around this time I put together a picnic for our friends and family and just like last year, we have LIVE ENTERTAINMENT. If you were one of the OVER 100 people that attended last year's picnic, then you KNOW it's an event you shouldn't miss. OFF THE HOOK!

For those of you who are not familiar with this event, please allow me to explain. During the summer many of us gather for different events, may it be poetry, party cruises, concerts, birthday parties, etc. Unfortunately for some, many of these events take place at clubs or lounges.

I've come to understand there are many people who miss out on these gatherings for the following reasons: Employment, Under 21, Unable to find a babysitter, and for many of us, our financial situation isn't so great.

My main objective: I always do this picnic on the last Saturday before classes officially resume as an End of Summer Break gathering. I do it this way to provide a neutral ground for EVERYONE to attend and enjoy. This is an awesome icebreaker as well. There is no need to "dress to impress", no pressure of "one on one' meetings, but most importantly, it's a FAMILY event. No one needs to be left behind.

This is an awesome way to meet the people you've established relationships with over time over the line but have never had the chance to meet. This is also a great way of meeting new people and creating new relationships.

It's always wonderful to share laughs, stories and great food, play games, dance, and create new stories for new memories. However, you still miss out on some of these awesome events and that's why I thought to do it different this year.

I've reached out to some of my wonderful people and they've agreed to contribute to this picnic and turn it into an extraordinary event.

******* LOCATION *******

In the grass area right alongside the parking lot, near the ball courts. There's NO WAY you'll miss us. If you've attended before, know that it's in the same spot. I'll post a picture of the area soon.

Peace family, would any bomba/plena drummer/dancer/singer/poet be down to perform at a rally with the People Power Movement - Movimiento Poder Popular on Thurs. Sept 24 @ 3-5pm? We are commemorating el Grito de Lares and the Puerto Rican struggle for independence in the streets of Kingsbridge Rd and Morris Ave. (named El Grito de Lares Way) in the Bronx, near the 4 train. Please let me know we would love to show our community some love through music, culture and rhythm!!

Once again an amazing time with Lisa Centeno and crew. This year I was happy to say that I wasn't a a first timer and brought family with me that included my 81 year old Mama, who said she hadn't been around so many awesome people in a while. She prayed that God gives her life to return next year. Another special guest was my new baby girl Kira.. Although Mia was in a rough mood with frequent seizures she too had a great time and actually went on the beach for the first time.. Loved loved it all!!!

Omg thank God she was (is) OK. You should've said something to me. We would've said a group prayer for her. :( I thank you so so so very much for being there and bringing your family and friends. Having your mommy there was super special. What a joy in my heart!!! I pray for good and stable health for all of you and that we're all blessed enough to do this again next year.

* * ATTENTION, BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE * * Every year I subtly micromanage the menu and it's always worked out perfectly. However what you don't know is that it does take a lot of detailed attention and that something I just haven't been able to do this year. Several people are asking me what should they bring. My response is this; bring whatever you and your family will consume, and if you want to share, bring extra. * ANOTHER OPTION * Post on the thread below what you will bring. Example: One person brings a tray of rice, another brings a tray of chicken, another brings a tray of peppered Italian sausage, another brings a pack of frank with buns, another brings bottles of sodas and a pack of cups, so on and so forth. Work with each other and make it happen! :) I NEED BOOMBOX AND SOME GOOD MUSIC! SOMEONE PLEASE BRING IT. MORE THAN ONE WOULD BE GREAT! IF YOU HAVE A MIC WE CAN PLUG INTO THE BOOMBOX, PLEASE BRING IT! THANKS!

Very. I make a ridiculous pernil. I'd chop it all up beforehand to make it easy to serve.

With this epic annual BBQ just 3 days away and me relocating to Florida just 5 days away, I'm filled with great emotions. I keep saying I'll be back, but the more I think about finally being able to own my own home with a pool, the more I entertain the idea of just staying out there. I don't know, man. Anything can happen. They say, if you want to make God laugh, tell Him your plans. I do hope I get to see you guys on Saturday at the BBQ. I think I'm going to have to not wear makeup that day cuz I just know I'm going to be a teary mess.

OK... Managed to find a bunch of little bowls! I'll freeze the sofrito in there but I suggest you bring a little styrofoam cooler with some ice to keep them cold because they'll defrost fast and I won't have room in my cooler to store them through the day. Jani Rose Rob Vassilarakis

Mi gente! Just a note that the majority of the music and "open mic" segment of Peoples Poetry In the Park usually starts around 2 PM. It's a beautiful experience, we gather in a semi circle usually around the drums and have a wonderful time... Performers! I will have a sign-up sheet so once you see me, if you're looking to perform, just ask! 3 minute limit, we are looking for Poets, Singers, Comedians, Musicians! Just be aware that this is a FAMILY FRIENDLY event, be respectful of each others differences and please keep the language clean! We look forward to sharing a day of laughter and love with you... Elevacion!

World class jazz meets poetry- Legends TV with Evan Ginzburg 8-29-15" co-hosted and featured performances with Avante Garde Jazz Great Carsten Radke and Poet Jon Winell Theater 294's Marlo Roberson Folk Singer Derek Knott- Derek Knott's songs are like little prayers- little secular prayers. That's not to say there isn't plenty of soul and spirituality in his acoustically rooted music. Even the laid back tunes smile warmly and swing sweetly." -Rochester's City Newspaper http://ustre.am/:4RO83.

* IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT * It is with great sadness I announce my (temporary) change of residence. After the Poetry In The Park / Bomba Fest BBQ w/ Friends & Family (Sept. 5th), I will be relocating to Tampa, FL. Not being able to find employment and having to give up the apartment we're currently subletting has forced us to make uncomfortable moves in order to establish a level of stability. While in FL, my husband and I will work and study and prepare ourselves financially to return to NYC, but that won't be anytime before the summer of 2016. I believe this is the best thing for us at this time. This will also allow my husband to finally be with his mother for her birthday and all upcoming holidays. I've cried and cried. My heart is breaking over this BUT if I'm going to be honest, I'll have to tell you that the cause of this is knowing I'll be away from my Capicu Culture family for a while. I will miss all of you, my friends and fam-friends (famigos). I would love more than anything to see as many of you as possible before I leave. I'm suggesting that you attend my annual BBQ on Sept 5th. I'd love to spend a day with you. To all of my friends and family in Florida, SEE YOU SOON!

I know what you are going through, and I was gonna make THAT trip to the Bronx to see you bang it out, but with your situation going and nobody else helping you out, hopefully moving to another state and coming back in a year would change everything instead of feeling down. You have obstacles to overcome, I'm praying for you.

In Which park will it be at
Lisa Centeno
-- 10/07/2015 17:26
Dagee Rajah, It's at Orchard Beach picnic area, alongside the parking lot, all the way towards the front of the lot when you drive in, so that you don't miss us. If you're walking from the bus terminal, you continue to walk the pedestrian path until you get to the end, just passed the handball courts. You can't miss us.
