About Discovery Park:

For a park map:

What to bring:

  • A prepared dish of raw, organic vegan ingredients (no animal products!). As this is a picnic, whole organic fruits, as well as salads are especially welcome! As it is outdoors, durian is more than welcome (as well as durian puddings, pies, etc.!)
  • Please provide a detailed list of the ingredients.
  • These events are about abundance! If eaten alone, one person's food should fill at least 2-3 people.
  • If it's your first time and you don't know what to bring, but are interested in coming, just bring an organic salad (greens or fruit) with dressing on the side.
  • Please bring your own plates and silverware.

What to bring - EXTRAS:

  • In addition to having our raw potluck, we like to have fun, so feel free to bring frisbees, basketball, volleyball, tennis equipment, etc. Plan to have fun! If anyone has a volleyball net to bring, there are permanent posts at the park. Badminton equipment is also welcome. Perhaps we'll have another game of kickball or ultimate frisbee! I also plan to bring some juggling pins, etc., so if you're a juggler, please show us how it's done!
  • If you prefer not sitting on the ground, please bring blankets and/or chairs. Let's celebrate the start of summer with some wonderful company, some fun games and activities, and some vibrant raw living foods!!!
  • Bring bicycles for fun cruises around the park and down to the waterfront!
  • In honor of, please consider bringing drums!
  • How about bringing some other instruments?

Newcomers are welcome!

Well-behaved children are welcome!

I look forward to seeing you there!

    The food is always great and the people are friendly. I brought Nori, which several people enjoyed. It was raining, but we made the best of it.

    Jeff, The weather could be wet. Do we have a rain plan?

      It's been somewhat steady rain here on Phinney Ridge this morning. The forecast on indicates 70% chance of rain. Doesn't look like a downpour though, true.

      Nevertheless, we at the Raw Boys' House welcome people to come into our abode for indoor revelry, if you/we deem it a cancel/cut-short on the outdoors. Let's post an update here if that is the consensus.

    I hope to be at the regular site (by the tennis courts) between 10:00 and 10:30 to set-up. Early-birds are welcome to help set-up, including search-and-retrieving picnic tables! :-)
