Famous Chili Cheeseburger Party

Yesterday evening, we hosted the Maxinkuckee Yacht Club’s Famous Chili Cheeseburger Party at the Farm. What…you haven’t been to it? How could that be? Hmm…maybe next year! You’ll just have to come to our Fall Regatta to check it out.

Since the Maxinkuckee Yacht Club (say that three times fast!) doesn’t have a brick and mortar home, members host the different events and gatherings or they are at other various locations in Culver. We’re pretty laid back, but we like our parties! There’s the Annual Fourth of July Picnic, various cocktail parties throughout the summer and our Awards Dinner. And it’s completely affordable…

I attended my first Chili Cheeseburger Party four years ago. Ed and I have now hosted two of the four that I’ve been to and I think we could be becoming a rather permanent location, which is fine with us! We’re on the schedule already for next year. 🙂 I thought I’d miss this year’s party because we were both going to be in Newport, but luckily Ed came to his senses and said I could stay home. 😉 It was a little odd hosting the party without my favorite guy (he actually did help out from afar)…but I had a lot of help from many volunteers and everything went off without a hitch.

And we had a bonfire. Wouldn’t be a complete party at the Farm without a bonfire.

BonfireDefinitely good times!
