Free. We will meet in front of a Starbucks near Irving and 9th Avenue, and then walk as a group over to the opening celebrations of the new "Hidden Garden Steps." One should bring food to eat at the celebration. It is the second mosaic stairway in that neighborhood. The first one known simply as "The Mosaic Stairway," at 16th Ave. & Moraga, is one of the best mosaic stairways on Earth. Also, meeting in front of this Starbucks will give us a chance to talk together about different things such as the SF Botanical Gardens as we walk over to the celebration about 8 blocks away. This Starbucks is right next to the N Judah Rail Line.
The below information was provided to us from our member Sherry Boschert who helped make the Hidden Garden Steps the big success it is today:
