Das Picnic

Let's meet and enjoy a (hopefully) warm and sunny San Francisco afternoon at Crissy Field.

I think we can be happy on the grass with blankets and chairs that you bring.
We can't reserve a picnic spot, it's first come first serve for picnic tables and grills.
Look for red, yellow and black balloons.

If anyone really wants a picnic spot with a table and grill, and can be there very early that's great. It's possible that if someone goes there early to put a table cloth and some things on a table, it can be saved for us. Based on yelp reviews others have done this successfully.

Please bring your own lunch. A snack or dessert to share with others would be nice too! There is a vendor next to the Warming Hut who sells bratwurst and hot dogs. There is also a deli inside of the Warming Hut so you have lots of options.

Rain or unseasonably cold weather cancels.

Bis bald!

    The weather forecast for today is sunny and temperatures in the mid-60's . It can be breezy there, so please dress accordingly.

    I am not sure if I can make it, but will try to. Does anyone know what the parking situation is around there? Any suggestions?

      The parking lot near Crissy Field usually has enough room. There is also a parking lot opposite Sports Basement, and street parking on Long Ave.

    I was really looking forward to this, but I don't think it's going to work out this time. I'll have to catch up next time. :)
