Summer BBQ and Show-Off




APA|DC Chair Matthew Rakola bought a house in Wheaton, MD. (Or, as the locals like to call it, “the cool part of Silver Spring”.) And you know what that means– an end of summer BBQ and outdoor Show-Off in August!

Please join other APA members and friends on Saturday, August 24th at his humble little slice of heaven. There will be all the typical barbecue things like burgers (including turkey and veggie), lawn chairs, paper plates, bocce and BBQ music. At around 8 pm we’ll turn down the sun, turn on the projector, set up the white seamless, and have a Show-Off under the stars. For the uninitiated, a Show-Off is our version of a slideshow, where people get 10 minutes each to show off anything they’d like, be it recent projects, videos, vacation pics or newest members of the family (we’re looking at you, Matthew).

The evening starts at around 4 pm and will continue until 10 pm or so, so stop by whenever you’d like and stay as long as you can. We’ll have the basics covered but please feel free to bring salads, side dishes, desserts, or your favorite drink. Matthew has TWO full kitchens so there is a ton of space to store and heat/reheat food.

Feel free to bring friends and family and pass this along to anyone in the creative industries.

Please RSVP on the Facebook Event Page.

If you need a ride or can offer a ride to someone else, please note that in the comments.



Saturday, August 24, 4-10 pm.
