Join us for a picnic in the park.
Arrive early as you like, we will eat at 2 pm
Bring a vegan dish, totally plant-based, so everyone can taste, enough to serve at least 8 adults, and your own drinks and table service. Please consider using whole grain pasta, brown rice, etc, in your dishes, same for buns and breads.
There are grills if anyone wants to heat boca burgers or smart dogs.
It's a park, so bring Frisbees, volley balls, what ever you think is fun. Here's a link to the Tennis Court Shelter Parking Lot 5 is closest.
Park guidelines are posted on the page that should answer most questions. If not, you can always contact the park.
I have not been to this park yet myself, but it looks wonderful and like it should be much fun.
For those of you more used to attending meetups at restaurants, don't let the bringing of a dish deter you. It doesn't have to be fancy. Salads are always welcomed, and it's pretty easy to put together a pasta salad or chop up some fruit. Or, you could always buy some fruit salad from a grocery store deli. You could also bring a cut up melon, a couple of pounds of tabbouleh, easy stuff like that.
No heavy perfumes, colognes, aftershave,etc they can aggravate asthma and trigger migraines. Let's save our senses of smell and taste for the food.
Thanks to Julie for making this space available. She had rented it for an event with another group, which fell through and she is happy to make it available to us. This is a free event, however, she is on the hook for $80 to secure the reservation. Please consider kicking in some money to her, to help defray her cost on this shelter, if you are able and so inclined.
I plan to hang around after the picnic and see what else the park has to offer. It will be a Saturday night, so if anyone has any ideas for activities for after, live music, etc, please share those with the group.
As ever, please feel free to suggest other meetup opportunities, especially picnic type stuff while it's still warm!
