    Julia, thanks for organizing and coming up with the great idea to meet at Playland! It's amazing how many times I've driven by the place and never noticed it.

    If you organize another event at Playland, I have an idea: maybe for half an hour, say 8 to 8:30 pm, we can get together as a group and compete as teams at the different games they have there (pinball machines, carnival games, etc.). It was an enjoyable evening last night, and it was nice to meet everyone.

      Andrea, even though it was your first time playing the Centipedes arcade game, you were really good!

    It was like going back to being a kid again except that you could keep playing any game over and over again until you won and it didn't cost you any more money per game. Unlimited plays :-) Thanks Julia, for organizing it. What nostalgia. Also enjoyed the food and company later, at Carrows, with stalwarts Theresa, Spencer and Julia, as we were the last from our group to leave Playland but wanted to eat and yak.

      Andrys, your description of the games last night is perfect: playing the games over and over again, and not having to to worry about pumping in more money or feeling frustrated. ^^

      And yes, it was nice hanging out afterwards at Carrows. Good company, good conversations.

    Maybe we should organize going there again?

    I am so sorry I missed it! I had a late day at work and wasn't feeling very good. But sounds like you guys had a blast.

    I thought that Playland would be open since it is advertised in the Contra Costa Marketplace, but to double check what you said I phoned them up and spoke to Frank. He told me that they are open every other Thursday to the public. Plus it will be $5 cheaper that night than on the weekends. The usual price is $15, that night it will be $10.
    Also if anyone objects that this place isn’t in Richmond I talked to Frank who works there, and he to me that the part of the parking lot is in Richmond and that person could hang out there if they insist on being “local”.

    I grew up in Santa Cruz on the boardwalk and am looking forward to this. Never mind it's only a few blocks from my flat!

    I thought we were going to your house. I emailed you about drinks and you said to bring some. I'm confused.

    Thank you.

    • Julia

      Sorry for the confusion, I decided to make it at 7 so people will have time to get there from work.

    I volunteer there, so don't get too rowdy or I'll have the security clown toss you out... Ha!

    I'm so sorry to miss this and I'd even be able to go after work! However,
    I'll be on vacation that week and out of state. great idea and I hope someone posts their experience.

    I used to go to Playland when it was actually at the beach. This sounds like too much fun to miss.

    Hi Julia,

    This sounds great, apart from the fact that I don't get home from work til 7:30 which wrecks a lot of meetup events for me. That aside, I just went to the link you post above
    and it says it's only open weekends except by special arrangement:

    Q: When is Playland-Not-at-the-Beach Open?
    A: Playland-Not-at-the-Beach is open to the public every Saturday and Sunday from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. We are also open during the week for pre–arranged Field Trips, School Visits and private events. We tend to be open on school holidays such as Memorial Day and MLK Birthday — check our Activities Page for details. In addition, by special advanced arrangement we can be open any night of the year for parties and events.

    Were you going to try and et up a 'special advanced arrangement' as referenced above?

    Thanks,

    -Mary
