A while ago I wrote a great article entitled How to Live Clean and Green in 2016.
At the end of that article, I said that if Donald Trump were elected President of the United States, I would hold a BBQ for all of the B&D killers and real-dealers.
That great article was published on January 7, 2016, and below are the exact words I said:
I don’t pay attention to the news or current events. The only “news” I will pay attention to in 2016 is the presidential election. And I’ll make a promise right now…
If Donald Trump wins the Presidency, I will have a Bold & Determined BBQ in Los Angeles, California. Each and every B&D reader will be invited. See you then.
That was then, this is now. Now that Trump indeed won the election, I did indeed live clean and green in 2016 – guess what else is happening…
The B&D BBQ is happening now.
When I made the announcement of a B&D BBQ I was sure Trump was going to win the election. Great minds can predict these things and I had no doubt in my mind.
But do not mistake this B&D BBQ for a Trump celebration because it is not.
THIS IS A BOLD & DETERMINED BBQ.
Our B&D BBQ has nothing to do with Donald Trump and everything to do with destiny. The B&D BBQ is bigger than a celebration of Trump.
As it turns out, the B&D BBQ is true destiny as it just happens to fall on the exact day I made the announcement, exactly one year later.
I made the original BBQ announcement on January 7, 2016.
The B&D BBQ is taking place on January 7, 2017.
The seemingly random BBQ announcement was made exactly one year before the BBQ was seemingly randomly scheduled to take place at a beautifully clean and green park in west Los Angeles, on the ocean.
This is a true BBQ of Destiny and I expect great things to come from it, because it is a matter of fate, not of celebration.
The original post was entitled How to Live Clean and Green in 2016. We are holding the BBQ at a beautifully clean and green park that simply feels right.
While visiting the park for a few moments to prepare notes, I saw a squirrel eating a large apple, I heard seals barking in the marina, I saw many dogs at play and I heard the sounds of many birds singing.
The clean and green park is a very calming place, especially considering that Los Angeles surrounds it. The clean and green park is a little piece of peace in a city of chaos.
The park is clean and it is green; we're going to add the 3rd ingredient – the mean.

WHAT TO BRING
You are not required to bring additional items to the BBQ, though you are encouraged to be part of the team and bring things such as hot dogs, non-alcoholic drinks and other related food items.
To receive a personalized autograph, bring your paperback version of New World Ronin.
2 B&D BBQ RULES
Rule #1: There is no alcohol consumption allowed.
Remember why you are coming to the B&D BBQ: You are coming to the BBQ because destiny has demanded you meet and mingle with other Ronin such as yourself.
This is not a “get drunk and act stupid” BBQ, this is a chance to meet with, befriend and network with other killers who are on the same path you as. Take full advantage of it by being sober.
Note: To calm yourself without alcohol, here's what you do: Take 2-4 Red Monkey capsules an hour before arriving. Then, after arriving and acclimating to the BBQ, take 2-4 more if needed.
Rule #2: Carry yourself with respect.
At the BBQ of Destiny, you are not just representing yourself, you are representing the B&D/NWR Army as a whole. As the Shogun of the BBQ, I expect all at the BBQ to carry themselves with dignity, pride and honor.
OFFICIAL HAND SIGNAL
The official hand signal of the B&D BBQ is known as the 3-in-1. The 3-in-1 represents the triangle of greatness (Mind-Body-Spirit) inside each killer, real-dealer, ronin and shogun. We use this hand signal to signify that you are indeed part of the club.
On your right hand, make an “O” with your index finger and thumb, leave your remaining 3 fingers exposed to represent the number 3 and place the 3 over your heart to represent that you are a man of heart, will and steel.
USE UBER TO GET TO THE BBQ
In Los Angeles, the easiest way to get around is to use Uber. Ubers are frequent, convenient and abundant and I recommend using Uber to get around.
Burton Chace Park is 20 minutes away from LAX. The address of the BBQ of Destiny is 13650 Mindanao Way, Marina Del Rey, CA 90292.
ARRIVING FROM LAX
LAX can be confusing when trying to get a ride. To find the pick-up area go to the front of the airport and take the elevator to the second floor.
Once outside you will see signs directing you were to go. Signs A-F are the designated Uber pick up areas. Request your Uber and then I recommend calling your driver to verify which location to go to.
Once your Uber driver drops you off, make your way towards the back of the park and simply look for the killers and real-dealers, we'll be hard to miss.
We will be on the other side of the main building in two areas. One area will be under a white patio and the other will be the picnic areas.
I would suggest bringing a light jacket. Marina del Rey has nearly perfect weather year round, but no one can predict the weather and since the BBQ is in January I would recommend bringing a light jacket just in case.
If you drive your own car you will need to pay to park in one of the “pay to park” lots. I would recommend simply taking an Uber because it would be quicker, cheaper and more convenient.
At the BBQ you may call me Victor, you may call Nick, or you may humbly refer to me as God of War. I am a humble man and go by all names.
Leave a comment below and let me know that you are coming.
I can't wait to meet you, as I know destiny has plans for you and I. See you soon.
Until next time.
