This seasonal Off the Grid event is one of my favorite activities in the Bay Area. The new season just kicked off, so let's get together to enjoy the (hopefully) nice weather!
Off the Grid: Picnic at the Presidio is a weekly gathering of food trucks, food stands, and vendors from 11am - 4pm. The incredibly yummy food options align the sides of a wide, grassy area on which everyone picnics while taking in the gorgeous Bay and Golden Gate bridge views. Schedule
11am: Meet at the Main Post Lawn and set up; start picnicking
11:30am: Last chance for guaranteed seating with our group
1:30pm: Pack up</pr>
Based on my experience opening weekend, this event is getting even more popular (read: crowded), so you must arrive by 11:30am to be guaranteed a spot with our group.
Items to bring: Cash, layered clothing, brimmed hat, comfortable shoes (sneakers are recommended), water, drinks to share, sunblock, picnic blanket(s)/low chair(s), small picnic table (if desired), sun shade (if desired)
To me, a picnic isn't complete without fun drinks, so please bring something to share with the group: I usually bring sangria, hibiscus tea, or both.
Be responsible and know your limits: Don't drive under the influence.
Note: Sometimes, GPS doesn't find this location, so a safe bet is to input The Walt Disney Family Museum -- it is alongside the event location. There is a huge parking lot, but know that it costs $1.20/hour even on Sundays.
