It's the perfect time do head to our infamous Rose Garden! Bring a sack lunch, a camera and some good vibes :) We will meet at the amphitheater for lunch, then casually walk the gardens. In order to find each other, your job is to wear an orange shirt :) ORANGE ORANGE ORANGE!

If the weather is crappy, I will reschedule this for a later time.

      Number 1, there is no address for the rose garden. Number 2, I hope I'm misinterpreting your tone

    I missed the Orange concept and only met Lisa and Alex .. missed the other gentleman's name - any way it was great day and I played guitar spiritual folk songs in the Shakespeare garden for a few hours to practice sharing in public as a solo artist. Would an orange scarf work? may have troubles with getting the color code to work.

      Ahmed - if you wear yellow instead - those of us with rosé tinted glasses will see it as Orange.
