Russell's Celestial Iced Teapot Picnic - Como Park Midway - July 25 11 a.m. $7

Did you like the Flying Spaghetti Monster Dinner in May? Well, here is your chance to hang out with your favorite freethinkers again at the Russell's Celestial Iced Teapot Picnic! Don't get the reference? Click here!

This time, we are hosting a picnic, with grilled food, like hot dogs and hamburgers, along with their veggie equivalents. We'll also have varieties of iced tea. Food will be served starting at 11 a.m. and we can stay at the shelter until 2:30 p.m. After then, we will have groups who will go for nature walks around the park, one group will head to Como Zoo, One group will be Geocaching, and another will go play mini golf.

Please bring a donation of at least $7 (donations above $7 are always accepted) for all you can eat food and beverages. We welcome any picnic food donations as well. Good things to bring will be chips, potato salad and desserts. If you'd like to bring something to share, let us know through a comment when you RSVP!

We plan on having even more fun this time around. We will have games and prizes for adults and kids.

The picnic will be located at the Como Park Midway Pavilion, which is the same place as the last Spaghetti Dinner. If you didn't make it last time, the Pavilion is between Lexington and Hamline, just off of Horton. This is NOT next to Lake Como! A good place to park, will be in the Como Pool parking lot.

I hope to see you there!

*Note* The change in cost from $6.66 to $7 is meant to speed the process along by not having to count out 34 cents in change. Of course, exact change is always appreciated, or even better, a donation above $7 can help our cause even more!

    Although the intermittent rain kept the crowd down and prevented us from playing badminton, volleyball and frisbee, the food was good and the company was better. The trip to the zoo was fun, too.
