07/20/08 - Location for the potluck
Posted June 23rd, 2008 - 6:10 pm by from Oakland, United States (Permalink)
So where do you all think we should have the 3rd Sunday Potluck in July (Sunday the 20th)? Should we stick with Delores or move it somewhere else? And how did this month work out for you all? Were you able to find the event pretty easily? Was the weather in your favor?

Let's talk about it for a while and then we'll put together the event page and send it out on July 1st.

I liked Dolores park a lot as a permanent location. I'd be ok with doing that again. I spoke to some others who felt the same. It's centrally located, isn't too bad on parking normally (yesterday was a huge festival day, which made it a little weird), is beautiful, has better weather than most of the city (yesterday was amazing!), and is just a great atmosphere.

I also talked to some people about doing it in weird locations that wouldn't normally be potluck material, like Union Square. I think that'd be cool! Parking there would definitely be an issue though. It is more public transitable, however.

I do apologize for losing my phone for some time in the middle of the party. It was in the grass somewhere and I couldn't find it for a while, so I missed some calls. I tried to get back to everyone and help people find us, though. Next time I'll be more conscientious. I'm happy being the phone coordinator though. Just post my number and anyone looking for the potluck or with questions can call.

Hard to beat Dolores Park. I drove from Martinez and found a good parking place and a super neighborhood park to kick back in and explore the area. Couldn't have been a better afternoon.

I couldn't make the previous one because I had classes! (Yeah, I was soooo smart to choose classes on weekends... *groan groan groan*) So I can't comment on how June's Potluck was- But i'll make this one for sure!

I have no idea where Delores park is, but I think Parking anywhere in San Francisco over the weekend totally SUCKS. And if people who went, liked the venue, then why not? :)

Nithin! It's horrible you won't be there! I still owe you $8 so call/email me and let's do something so I can pay you back!

:)

Yeah Nithin, no worries! So you think we should do Dolores again?

As a mission resident, I vote for Dolores park! Awesome location, close to public transit, mostly sunny and great people watching. You can also hit Bi-Rite easily for more food and drinks :)

Okay, so we'll do Delores park again and Zach will be on-site co-ordinator again. I'll kick out the event page later today. And for the August potluck I'll be there in person!
