Best of Summer...with the Best of Brisbane

Memorial Day is thought to be the official kick-off of barbeque season, but there's one taking place June 19th that might just surpass them all. Brisbane's Mission Blue Center has been chosen to be the venue for a gourmet summer kick-off cookout. That's right - enjoy the best of barbeque (tri-tip, ribs, and chicken!) as the San Mateo County Community Colleges Foundation (SMCCCF) sets out to raise support to fund scholarships and programs for students at Skyline, CaƱada, and the College of San Mateo. Click here to RSVP by mail, or you can do so online at their website by clicking here (make sure you enter "BBQ Registration" in the Comments box).

Have an upcoming party to plan this summer but can't think of a worthy location? Mission Blue Center, located in the Northeast Ridge, will surely not disappoint - you, nor your guests! If you've never been up to visit this stunning facility (which also has panoramic views of San Bruno Mtn. along with the Bay...not to mention seating for over 200 and a truly elegant ambiance) check out this 3-D virtual tour of Mission Blue Center. If you're interested in booking the facility for a private rental, you can contact Recreation Supervisor Julie Weidner at (415) 657-4320 or

And though they haven't hit Brisbane yet, rising temperatures will surely be coming to town as summer gets underway. Make sure you're able to enjoy the best of summer (in Brisbane!) by reading up on the Office of Emergency Service's latest Tip of the Month, and Be Informed about Extreme Heat. With that, we hope you have a great weekend. (And if you haven't already done so, you may want to start it out with a donut!)
