Brak Pak Xmas

Well it is that time of the year again. We will be having our Brak Pak Christmas Party in the Park this Thursday, December 10th. The menu will consist of tamales, chili, beans, queso and chips. The cost will be $5 per person. Please bring your own beverage. We will also be having our usual White Elephant Gift Exchange as well. If you would like to participate please bring a gift for the exchange. There is a $15 limit on the cost of the gift. Let's see what kind of excitement we get this year. What will be the gift that everyone wants and who will take it from whom????

Please let me know if you plan on attending so that I can make sure to get enough tamales. I would appreciate all RSVP's by 7 pm Tuesday, December 8th.
Happy Holidays to Everyone and I hope to see you on Thursday.
