There will be Plenty of fire, more than too much meat and more laughs than a bag of jokers, all washed down with a cider or two. Get involved as much as you can or sit back and just enjoy your day and the feasts that will ensue.

Its an asado – thats what its all about, enjoying ourselves, the setting and the company.
