Reddit r/Austin Message Board › New Meetup: Picnic Meet Up! In the park!
Announcing a new Meetup for r/Austin!
What: Picnic Meet Up! In the park!
When: Saturday, May 14, 2011 3:00 PM
Where: FIESTA GARDEN
Lady Bird Lake 1900 Bergman Avenue
Austin, TX 78702
(512) 769-0240-C Michou
Why: We tried to do it last year, and got faked out w/ a rainstorm that ended up being slight drizzle. While the meet up moved to Flipnotics and was fun, I'd love to host something that is our original dream - a full on picnic, complete with grilling.
I'd like to host a picnic meet up.
I'll pay for the space reservation. We should pick a spot. I think the two parks that seem most accessible and fits our needs are either Fiesta Garden or Pease Park. What say you?
I picked May 14 b/c there seems to be very little going on that weekend.
Also, May is national Bike Month, so cycling is encouraged. : )
Bring your pet/frisbee/kids/alcohol. Be mindful of the park and respectful and such, as you always are.
BYOB and BYOF. Bring items to grill, salads, etc... I'll make sure there's a veggie section on the grill for non-meat eaters.
List of things folks might want to bring:
Salads - pasta, potato, regular kind
Buns! - hot dog and hamburger
Condiments - ketchup, relish, mustard, mayo, bbq
a cooler or two or three
stuff for s'mores
desserts - last time, we had custom Reddit brownies. Can't possibly imagine how that's getting topped : )
game type things - soccer ball, football, discs, etc...
What do you guys think?
