New Meetup: Picnic Meet Up! In the park!

Austin, TX
Announcing a new Meetup for r/Austin!

What: Picnic Meet Up! In the park!
When: Saturday, May 14, 2011 3:00 PM

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


Hot Dogs

Veggie dogs/burgers


Condiments - ketchup, relish, mustard, mayo, bbq

paper plates

plastic utensils

trash bags

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?
