Vegan Barbeque-Potluck-Pic­nic in Downtown Cotati Park!!

Let's celebrate Independance Day with a new tradition of independence from cruelty! (and a couple days early) Everyone's welcome, so bring friends and family! And for those of you who know Hope, a long time local animal activist, we'll also celebrate her birthday!!!

I'll bring the tofu dogs, buns, charcoal and tinfoil to cover the barbeque grill.

If anyone has a barbecue that is fairly clean of meat residue, please sign up to bring it as a backup (and in case others are using the Cotati park barbeques).

Please bring your own plate cup and silverware to cut down on waste. If you have a frisbee, bring it along and we'll toss it around!

Here are some items people can sign up for, let me know what you're bringing and I'll update the list as we go along:

  • Charcoal and tinfoil Wade
  • Backup barbeques and more charcoal Karen
  • Tofu dogs and buns Wade
  • Veggie burgers and burger buns Sandy and Farrell

    Fabulous! Met so many folks I hadn't met before--and good to see so many folks I know as well. Grania had a blast with her frisbee. Glad we did not get booted! :) Thanks so much Wade for organizing this. Happy Birthday to all Cancers! (the astrological sign).

    Oh phoo. I looked at the document you found, and although it does apply expressly to reserving the park for a private party, you don't want to mess around where there are finces involved. I recommend calling the non-emergency number to ask:[masked]-4611. Good luck!

    Susie, I don't know with certainty, but it looks like pets are allowed unless there is a public festival, which this is not! (I looked in the Cotati City Ordinances.)

    Hope, if i can come for just a little while i will and bring your gift, but it won't be safe for me to drive if i don't go get some sleep. (i know you probably do not want a lot of stuff, but this is something you told me you liked a long time ago.) ?

    Hope i am practically in tears over this but i doubt i will be coming. Art and our temporary housemate made too much noise at 2:30AM last night and i never was able to go back to sleep. Too tired to go to the farmers market or SR Community Market to get food let alone go to barbeque. i have a gift for you that is something i think you will really like. but if Art goes on his motorcycle he won't be able to bring it for me, so will have to give it to you another time. ?

    i said i was going to bring watermelon and maybe my potato salad but cannot find it now to edit, Dian is making my potato salad and today is my second day of raw diet so will just be bring organic watermelon and organic veganaise along with extra utensils to share.
