Let's go to this yearly food festival and wander around and sample their wares. This is a once a year event. Details and link follow. I borrowed the write-up from Kathleen's group who are going on Saturday. I'm working Saturday so let's go on Sunday. It runs from 10am to 6pm-ish and costs $12/proceeds go to charity. Buy your ticket on line in advance or bring cash to spend at the gate. All the food and drink costs money so bring enough cash for that too. I'm not going to charge for this meetup since there is already a fee.
Let's carpool from Brendan's on the Westside at 9:00am, we'll wait 10 minutes for any late-comers. - if you are coming from Santa Cruz. If you are coming from another location, post in the comment section, where you are coming from, if you want to be a rider or a driver and how many spots in your car. It's an hour from Santa Cruz and it will be a mob scene. We'll have to use the festival parking and then ride a shuttle to the site. Once we get there - Let's meet anyone coming from locations other than Santa Cruz, towards the back of the crowd at the Gazebo State to catch Cindy Harvel, an Americana music performer, at 10:30am. Her set runs 45 minutes, but I've never heard her, but we'll stay for at least the first 15 minutes of it. I'll be wearing a green floppy hat and red ray bans. Wear shorts as it will be really hot like as not.
