Urban Hikers' Evening Picnic
Just for once, we skip the Urban Hiking and get right down to Happy Hour with an Urban Hikers' Evening Picnic! Let's celebrate the 6th anniversary of this group, and the longer daylight hours with a Thursday evening picnic. Let's meet in Lafayette Park and bring food and drink to share. We will not be barbecuing as this is not allowed in the park. Alcohol is not allowed either, so we will do that discretely by following these guidelines: No clear cups, no red party cups, bottles and glass should be kept hidden from view. Please state what you are bringing in the comments when RSVPing. Also bring a blanket or something to sit on. Some of us should also bring some cups, plates, napkins and utensils. More exact details on how to find us will follow on the meetup comments. If anyone could get there early and stake out our space that would be great. Let's try for the same spot we used last year when we did this. If anyone has a marker we can use to identify our group, like a flag or a something small we can stake in the ground let me know. Hope to see you there! Liability Disclaimer: The organizers of this meet-up are unpaid volunteers and not expert hiking guides. All participants agree to assume 100% responsibility for their own safety, conduct, and well-being and recognize that possible hazards exist while participating in outdoor (or any other) activities, and agree to participate solely at their own risk.

    What we're about

    We like to do walks/urban hikes mostly on week-end afternoons. Walks usually start at 12 or 1 at a public transportation friendly starting point and end around 5:30 or 6ish with a get together afterwards. The after hike gathering is optional and non-drinkers are welcome. Some of our walks are dog friendly. Sometimes, we just go on a random urban adventure. We also like movies/films/art and we may schedule some film or art events as well.

    Pedestrian Safety: In 2017, 20 pedestrians were killed on the streets of San Francisco. Do not become a tragic statistic. You are solely responsible for your own safety as walker and it is your sole responsibility to obey all traffic laws. Do not cross against a traffic light just because you are walking with a group! You will need to catch up once the traffic light allows you to proceed.

All participants agree to assume 100% responsibility for their own safety, conduct, and well-being and recognize that possible hazards exist while participating in outdoor (or any other) activities, and agree to participate solely at their own risk.

    No Show Policy: No-shows are not appreciated. Chronic no-shows are really not appreciated. If you sign up for an event and find you can no longer attend, please change your RSVP to NO. Chronic no-shows will be disallowed from signing up for future events. Thanks for your understanding.

    Important Information: If you are late for a hike, it is very hard to catch up with us, because we keep moving. We walk at a medium pace. Escorts (also known as sweeps) are not provided, so slower walkers should be completely prepared to finish the hike on their own if they become separated from the group, and they may want to consider bringing a friend to walk with them. We reserve the right to make small changes to the route as needed.

    Dog Information: If you ask us if you can bring a dog, and we say yes, this just means that we don't mind if you bring your dog. It does not mean that we have scoped out the entire route to see if there are any signs prohibiting dogs. You will need to keep your eyes out for these signs and you may need to reroute and meet us later on the route. You are 100% responsible for any issues or consequences regarding your dog on the hike or event.

    ID, and Cash Only Policies, and the After Hike Gathering: Some of the places where we go after our hikes require ID for entry, regardless of your age. Please bring your ID if you plan to attend happy hour. Some of the places where we go after our hikes do not accept credit cards. Please bring cash, or be prepared to go in search of an ATM.
