Dolores Park Fruitluck

The last fruitluck to celebrate Juliet's traveling was beautiful and bittersweet. This time, let's return to Dolores Park to continue celebrating fruit and friendship!

We will be at the corner of the park by 20th street and Dolores right above the playground. Look for the group of people with a lot of fruit. XD

Please RSVP and bring ripe, fresh fruit. Organic/exotic fruit is encouraged. Feel free to bring a frisbee, slack line, kite, hoola hoop, ball, guitar, etc. Bringing cardboard boxes for our compost would be much appreciated too.

    Thank you everyone for coming! It was a lot of fun. Double slack lines, thirteen durians, and tons of fruitlovers. Life is good.

    Hey guys, I'm afraid I'll have to cancel. I had an emergency coming up (nothing serious). I'll try to swing by later if people are still around. Enjoy a frutilicious day!!

      See you later, Ale! Hope everything turned out okay.

    I finally have a Sunday off. Can't wait to meet you all.
    ps. does anybody have advice on quitting coffee? I keep going back to the stuff :/

      Teeccino!!! You can find it in most "health food" stores (Whole Foods, Berkeley Bowl). I used decaf, and although very acidic and not completely caffeine free, it definitely helps for the first week. By the time I added my soy creamer and sugar I could hardly tell a difference. I've gone coffee free a little over a year ago, but easily dove back in after getting a job at an espresso bar. I'm now 2 weeks off, and don't miss the jitters whatsoever.

      I find I don't need coffee anymore after I started making massive fruit smoothies w some greens in the mornings. The base is usually bananas and/or pineapple. I'll then add 5-10 medjool dates and either water or fresh pressed OJ. The greens are usually spinach or sping mix or romaine etc. This gives me calories and zing. I make it in the VitaMix and dump 24 ounces in a smoothie cup which i drink on the way to work and the rest (32 ounces) in a big glass jar for when I get to work.

    I second Izzy's comments. It was great meeting everyone and eating durian and getting my @$$ kicked by that slackline :)

    Hi everone! Quick question, where do you park? I'm not very familiar with San Francisco. Thanks!

    March 22, 2014

    • Benjamin B.

      Various streets around the park.

    Anyone know a good place to get airplane durian?

    March 22, 2014

    Looking forward to meeting everyone!

    Sorry for the off-topic request, but as I'm a total noob in SF and staying for about 2 weeks, can someone recommend a coffeeshop or other place to hang out? A hub for artists and freethinkers perhaps?

    Also wondering if anyone likes Madlib. He's playing the 27th of March at Folsom. Care to join?

    • Brian H.

      Hi Izzy! thats cool you are into music? I was also going to recommend freespace as a cool place, I haven't been to their new location yet.
      Also, Revolution Cafe, on 22nd street between Valencia and Mission can be a cool place for music and community.
      Another interesting community space is called NoiseBridge (hackerspace), its on Mission around 18th st.
      there must be a lot more places, I'll try to think of some

    • Izmael V.

      Thanks guys, very helpful! Also looking forward to Sunday's fruitparty :) And yes, I'm very much into music. Here's my own noodlings: www.soundcloud.com/izzyd­j

      Any recommendations where to get airplane imported Thai fruits? Else I'm going to bore everyone with the mangos and papayas I've seen in supermarkets so far.

      We're going to miss you and your quest for water. Hehe. Brian is right. You are off to a cool adventure. Keep in touch and take lots of pictures of the fruit there for us! "The major fresh fruits exports from Azerbaijan are apples, pears, grapes, pomegranate, apricots, peaches, cherries, plums, quince, diospyros, feyjoa and different citrus fruits."

      YUM!
