Summer BYO Picnic in the Park

Hi Parents!

The weather is nice outside, so let's have a picnic in the park! Alverthorpe Park is a large and beautiful park with plenty of places to stroll our kids, as well as some picnic tables and bbq grills! This picnic will be BYO ("Bring Your Own") which means that each family should bring an item of food or drink to share (Joe and I will bring plates, napkins, trash bag, and plastic forks/spoons/knives as well a food item -- I'll leave that to Joe to decide!). To avoid duplication of the same items, we can use the meetup comments wall to coordinate who is bringing what. Please RSVP to this event asap so Joe and I can reserve additional picnic tables and we can let the park's gatekeeper know who to expect under our party (let them know you are with "Choe-Gordon" party) as they do check IDs! It is a large park, but we will likely be in the grassy area located nearby the picnic shelter & baseball field (inside corner of the park by Forrest Ave & Fox Chase Rd)

Thanks and see you all soon!

    Good food, great parents, cute kids. If the weather had stayed perfect it would have been a perfect day. But the meetup itself couldn't have been better.

    I have decided I love picnics and I hate the part where I have to be cooking, which means I'm ignoring the other guests and especially my daughter.

    Sooooo, I'm bringing something to the party that's ready to go. Inspired by Stephanie, I am planning to bring one or both of a couple prepared dishes. One is jellyfish. It's better than it sounds. The other is an Asian dish from Hmart that's heavy on the vegetables and has oodles of rice noodles: japchae!

    Hi - I just joined and hoping to meet some of you. I think you need to be a resident of Abington to enter this park. How do non-residents (I'm in Upper Dublin) enter? Thanks!

      We will also bring our stroller. Let's see how the mood strikes us, but a walk sounds great.

      It's not a problem! You're attending for the new parents picnic, and you're with Jennie Choe and Joe Gordon. They'll let in people who are "with the party."

    Update: I reserved tables #11, 12 16 & 20 & I am bringing Galbi (marinated beef short ribs) & rice! :)

    Can't wait, Alverthorpe is a great place. I can bring a dessert and/or this summer ramen noodle dish that is yummy.

    We just moved to the area and are looking forward to meeting everyone! We'll bring a dessert!

    Just found this group. I don't get out of church until @ 12:15pm on Sunday afternoons, so I will likely be late to some of these meetups.

    Helen is looking at maybe making bulgogi and I was thinking of doing some side salad like potato salad or a broccoli and apple salad.
