Play @ McLaren Park & Backyard BBQ/Potluck! - SF

We have a real treat this time, one of the members, Elizabeth (Manggo is her member name), has generously offered to hold a BBQ party at her place after a little play at McLaren Park in San Francisco.  Elizabeth's place is nearby, so I will go ahead and lead everyone to her place after the park play. Please bring a side dish, desserts, or drinks if you're attending!  :)

Here's the plan for the afternoon/evening:

Meetup at the park, at the reservoir - 3:30pm - 4:15pm

BBQ @ Elizabeth's Home - 4:30pm - 6:30pm

About John McLaren Park:

Fenced only at the roadway- the off leash area includes the hill top bounded by Shelley Drive. This park includes trails, open space, and the reservoir for dog swimming.  It's one of the largest parks in SF.

Here's the link to the map of our meeting place, there is a parking lot where you can park and you'll see the reservoir below, we will meet by the reservoir:

Please text or call if you're going to be late, and if you need to change your RSVP, I'd appreciate it if you can avoid doing it at the very last minute since this is a special event.  :)

Thank you, see you soon!

    It was such a treat to have an interspecies bbq party! Thank you all for the delicious food that you brought. The berries were thrilled to have several dogs to hang out with in the backyard. They'd like to do it again :D

      That was a great time, Manggo! Tesla was also wiped out afterwards - a tired doggy is a happy doggy! Would love to do it again soon - thanks for your wonderfully cheerful hospitality!

    Oh, I totally forgot that tomorrow is Pride Parade, thanks for the reminder, Judy! And I'll make my dish not that spicy for you (will take the seeds out of jalapeños ;).
    Candy said she will also be bringing some desserts (yay! :).

    I may ask Elizabeth if I could drop off the food/champagne before the meetup, to be kept cool. But yes, we will be driving over to Elizabeth's place from the park (it's not walking distance :). I'll email you all her contact info and the address shortly, sorry, I forgot!

    Hi, everyone! I'm not sure yet what I'm bringing - likely some variation on the theme of veggie chow mein... Will we be returning to the cars to pick up our food before the BBQ? That might help inform what I can bring!

    Also, a heads' up that the Pride parade is tomorrow (starts at 10:30 am, is downtown along Market) - it should be well over with by the time we're all driving over, but there will likely be more traffic in the city just 'cause of all the activities this weekend... Probably best to leave extra time for the drive!

    Sophia - your dish sounds so yummy - I'm a total wimp with the spices, so I'll try a bite, but it might be too spicy for me! ;)

    Katie - Tesla is very excited about the turkey loaf cake! And whaddaya know - Margo and I are twins! ;)

    Elizabeth - thank you for hosting us - this will be so much fun!

    Hi Everyone! We are looking forward to the get together tomorrow! Per Sophia's email I wanted to let everyone know what we're planning on bringing. We were planning on bringing a Turkey Loaf Cake for the pups to celebrate Margo's birthday and for us humans we were planning on bringing some chocolate, oatmeal, peanut butter no bake cookies and some bottled water. See everyone soon!

    Just curious if there'll be any vegetarian options - no worries if not - I can always take care of that on my own - just thought I'd ask!

    June 27, 2013

    • Sophia F

      I think Elizabeth did mention a vegetarian option, but I'm making a vegetarian/vegan side dish, you can also bring one as well. :). (I'm not a vegetarian but I like to eat a lot of vegetables...just so you know, my dish will contain beans, eggplants, mushrooms, bell peppers, onions, garlic, jalapeños, and spices. :)
