**** In order to participate in the potluck portion of the event, you must bring a ready to eat vegan dish to share. Not doing so is not fair to those of us that do. If everyone does not bring a prepared dish to serve at least 10 people, there may not be enough food. The $3.00 donation option discussed below is if you forget your own reusable plate and utensils. There is no donation option if you do not bring a prepared dish because we can't eat money! Thank you.****
Please note that this event is promoted in various places so the actual turn out is likely to be bigger than would appear from the RSVP's here.
***This is a free event if you bring your own plate/bowl, eating utensils and serving utensils. If you forget to bring these we ask for a $3.00 donation. Funds will be used to pay for Meetup dues, domain name registration, supply and other costs for future potlucks. Additional funds will be donated to Green Veggies, Compassion Over Killing and/or Vegan Outreach.***
***NOTE FROM HOST: For this event we will meet at 2:00 PM at Alta Vista Park. There should be abundant free parking in the park. From south bound on Prospect Ave, turn right at Knob Hill Avenue, then turn right onto Julia Avenue and go near the end of the parking lot. We will meet at the picnic tables beside the children's playground and tennis courts , that is also where the potluck will be after the hike.
The hike is around 4.5 miles with ~400' gain. It's a mix of urban hiking, trails, and beach sand. The hike is not strenuous but there are some steep parts. Proper footwear would be good, sandals not so much. The weather should be sunny and warm, but it can get windy sometimes around the beach cliffs. Please bring your own water. You may also want to bring a jacket, hat, sunscreen, etc. A lawn chair or blanket/towel might be good to sit on for the potluck. We should be back at the park by 4:30 - 5:00pm at which time, the potluck will begin.
It's okay to show up for just the hike or the potluck. If you plan to do both, you may need an ice chest for your dish. When you RSVP please indicate if you are doing the hike/potluck/both. No dogs please as they are not allowed on the beach or in city parks.***
