East Bay Gay Dads & Fams Potluck Brunch THIS SUNDAY - Aquatic Park, Berkeley

Hey, Dads. Given all the interest expressed today about getting East Bay gay dads and their families together, it's seems it's time to get something on the calendar -- and sooner than later.

Everett Wilde and I set up the last two. I just spoke with Everett, and we both agreed that THIS SUNDAY would be best for this month. The following Sunday is the SF Gay Dads Meetup and the next Sunday is -- if you can believe it -- the day before the first day of public school in the East Bay. So, we thought, what the heck! Us gay dads are pretty nimble on our feet.

At the last MeetUp a number of talked about Aquatic Park. It's a great spot, and the play structure is very fun for kids and dads alike. The down side, especially now that the North Bay "summer" has fully descended on us, is that it can be be cold -- very cold. So, think layers.

The meeting time of 11am worked well last time, so let's do that again. Apart from a main dish or hearty food, let's all think about bringing juice, water or other drinks, and cups, plates, utensils and napkins.

DIRECTIONS: Take the I-80 University Ave. exit, turn right at 6th St., and right at Bancroft Way. Continue West towards the Bay until it dead-ends into Bolivar Drive. Take a left on Bolivar Drive until it dead-ends at the playground parking lot.

    Though it was a small group, we had a fantastic time. The kids all connected really nicely - and it was great to have some Daddy Conversation Time, too. Looking forward to the next one!

    Also, if you're coming north on 80, you can exit University and follow the sign for the Frontage Road - which is the hard right. Take a right onto 2nd, and a right onto Addison, before your left on University. There is a parking lot at the end right next to the playground and picnic area. The address to map is 80 Bolivar Drive, Berkeley.

    If you're mapping Aquatic Park, remember there are north and south entrances. You'll want the north entrance, where the playground and picnic tables are.
