Just a reminder: picnic will be at tables 3 & 4 in Lindley Meadow, Golden Gate Park

And the bonfire is still at Ocean Beach, though we don't know which pit yet because we can't reserve them.

If anyone needs to contact me, you can do so at: (408) 624-6876.

See you all there!

I stupidly scheduled an appointment at 2 -- how long will people be in the park before they amble off ot the beach?
posted by potsmokinghippieoverlord at 6:28 PM on July 17, 2009

Duh! I see now -- 4. I'll probably go directly to the beach?
posted by potsmokinghippieoverlord at 6:29 PM on July 17, 2009

I think some people will start going to the beach at 4 to reserve a pit, dunno if most will? Maybe we can tweet our location (and food requests) as we know them...

Dog and self will be heading out in a bit and should be there around 1:30 or so.

Looks like I'll just be making the bonfire. See you there!

showering, then heading up to the city. Anyone need a ride, or any food or supplies?

Has the party migrated, or am I at the wrong Table 3/4?

We were just at tables 3 and 4 about 30 minutes ago and there was nobody there. What's up?

Hope the party hasn't migrated as I'm just about to head over there.

We're here! At tables 3 and 4, roughly across from 29th Ave

Well, I tried & failed. Couldn't find you. Back home now; maybe I'll try for the beach later.

I am guessing you are not one of the Lindley Meadow groups with a Bouncy House?

Is it still going on in the park? I'm about to leave from Berkeley.

Heading out after extensive baby delays - are there still folks at the meadows?

On my way from Walnut Creek! I'll call when I'm in the City.

I just left at 3:45, had to go early. Good crowd: about 20 people, and beer for 50 :-) I think the plan was to head to Ocean Beach to reserve a fire pit around 4pm, but no one had started moving when I left. If you're coming for the bonfire, bring something warm to wear. Fog's in pretty strong right now.

I had a great time meeting everyone! Thanks to everyone, particularly blithecatpie for organizing us and bringing the yummy dumplings and eggrolls. I took one little photo.

Slowly moving towards Ocean Beach

Heading off to the bonfire. Close to JFK at Great Highway. Stairwell #16. all the pits are gone, but we'll just make our own. See you there!

18, not 16, FYI
posted by radicarian at 7:40 PM on July 18, 2009

You guys find a pit? Heading down soon.

That was a fantastic mega-meetup. Thanks so much to everyone who provided soda, beer, booze, burgers, egg rolls, charcoal, wood, and A DURIAN FRUIT. That durian was a life-changing event for me. I was reminded of it for the rest of the afternoon as I continued burping it up. Pictures are forthcoming (I need to scan all of the Polaroids)!

My thanks to the MeFite who gave me the jumpstart. If you're reading this thread, sorry I forgot your handle, and drop me a line -- I owe you a drink at the very least.

And I owe you, UrineSoakedRube, a drink or five for the lift. Thanks again.

Lots of fun - thank you Spork, for getting everyone to introduce ourselves, and a HUGE thank you for blythecatpie for making it all happen!!!

Just got home from the Riptide, the third stop of the night (after the park and the beach). Had a super fun cool time and really enjoyed meeting everyone.

Somehow, I arrived home from this 13-hour megameetup with twice as much fruit as I had brought with me coming in. Such is the glory of this site. Thanks, everyone, for a warm, hilarious, lovely outing.

It was, like, Mefi Summer Camp! Needed more arts and crafts, though. :) Thanks to everyone for coming out, and thanks blithecatpie for organizing us!

What a great meetup! Thanks for organizing, blithecatpie!

Finally got my pics up. Somehow, the Polaroids lose some of their magic when scanned. I'm not going to bother tagging with names, I missed the names of too many people!

FINALLY have access to a computer and finally got my pictures up. What a great first meetup. Thanks everyone so, SO much for attending and pitching in, especially with the booze ;)
