Picnic in Astoria Park

We continue our park series with a picnic in Astoria Park. Let's meet at the entrance at 19th St and 23rd Ave. From there, we will find a spot nearby to have our little picnic. Please bring something to share. If everybody brings at least one item, we should have plenty of food. 

When you RSVP, post what you will bring, so we don't have too much of one thing. I will bring some cheese and crackers, along with some supplies (paper cups/plates). There's also a public pool.

This will be a joint meetup with Simply Astoria

Afterwards, we can retire to a nearby bar/lounge.

    Pete's bringing cups and napkins but is anyone bringing the utensils? I was thinking of making a pasta salad so I wanted to know if I should bring forks too. What's everyone planning to bring so we all have an idea? Thanks.
