At the September installment of SaMoShel, the Barristers rang in the start of football season with wings and nachos!
The Barristers always meet on the second Tuesday of the month at OPCC SaMoShel (Santa Monica Shelter) to cook and serve a meal to as many as 60 of Santa Monica’s homeless population. Join us at our next meeting on Oct. 11, from 3-5 p.m.
We had a great turnout at our last SaMoShel event, and everyone was chopping, grilling, scooping SOMETHING to perfection. The menu was Carribean themed, and everyone we served was so greatful we even got some applause! Check out pictures from the event below, and remember: the next SaMoShel will be this weekend on August 9!
Barristers from the Beverly Hills and Santa Monica Bar Associations went head to head last Saturday in Santa Monica to play an epic game of softball. Sadly, the home team won in the last inning, with a final score of 7-6, but the weather was great, the game was a blast, and both sides came together for a pizza party afterward. Thanks to Jonathan Dennis for organizing, and stay tuned for details about a rematch later this year!
The Barristers really came together this weekend to prepare dinner for about thirty homeless people at SaMoShel. They got a delicious dinner of chicken parmasean, penne bolognese, Italian salad, and garlic bread, along with a healthy serving of vanilla-almond pudding (with a much fancier sounding name) for dessert. We got cooking lessons from Roshni Gandhi, Anton Labrentz, and Leroy Williams. Everyone had a blast!

Salad looks good!
Leroy taught us how to chop onions.
We got so into it there were extra! Garlic onion cheesey bread anyone?
Last week, several Barristers members met for a bike ride in the South Bay. Thirteen and and a half miles later we were back at Good Stuff Restaurant, hungry for a terrific brunch. Thanks to Brian Smith for organizing, and can't wait for the next program in July!
