Summer Solstice Picnic- Second Annual!!!


Everyone- This was my favorite meet up from last year and I belong to a few groups. Everyone came and it was great. I have posted the instructions from last year below it all seemed to work out so lets do it again!

Meet at Table #17 in Lindley Meadow.

http://sfrecpark.org/destination/golden-gate-park/lindley-meadow-picnic-area-table-17/
____________________________
Let's cook out or nosh together on Summer Solstice!

Here are what I think should be some reasonable rules for

adults:

- Natalie will bring ice chest, charcoal, lighter fluid, grill tongs and aluminum foil for the grill.

- Each picnic'er should bring utensils, napkins and cups for their own use and any guests. Use your own judgment if you need blankets, warm clothes.

- Each picnic'er should bring a small picnic and drinks. We can all assume that chips, dips, veggie trays, desserts, cheese/crackers and water are welcome. You can say what you are bringing in your RSVP! Give people a good idea of the variety.

- If you have croquet set, lawn bowling, badminton or kickball, frisbee, football, checkers etc please bring that as well!

- Dogs are welcome! Please care for them and be respectful of other sites.

- If it is last minute and you want to come out but have not shopped, show up anyway. We can work something out.

- I will try to reserve an exact site on line so that we are not guessing.

    I may bring homemade banana walnut chocolate chip bread (cake, really) instead of lemon bars. My banana bread is better than Martha Stewart's--she only uses 3 bananas, and I use seven. Whatever I bring will be a delicious home made gourmet dessert.
