2:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Let’s get together and start the spring/summer with a bang playing games and getting out to meet new people. This event is going to be the mother of all picnic events. We’ll have awesome wines to try, tons of craft beers, and plenty of games to keep everyone occupied.
If you use Google Maps and put in Hellman Hollow we’ll be within a few hundred yards of the bathrooms. I’ll try to get some orange balloons to signal our location!
Food is welcomed and recommended to bring although I’ll provide drinks and games for everyone!
BEER FANS: I’m going to hit up some local breweries in Santa Rosa and collect us some awesome local beers for everyone to try and taste throughout the day!
WINE FANS: Much like our “wine picnic” we did last year – I’ll bring an assortment of unique California wines with a variety of price points and complexity. You can try as much wine as you’d like and discover some new favorites.
NON-DRINKERS: There’s going to be plenty of games and snacks for anyone interested in attending and not interested in the alcohol appeal of this event.
Games I’ll Provide:
• Soccer (pug goals)
• Cornhole (at least 1 set maybe 2 sets)
• Lifesize Jenga
• Ladder Ball
• Bocce Ball
Golden Gate Park has a few strict rules that we must follow which can be found on their website. Ultimately, please respect the park while we’re there! I’ll have some recycling and trash bags so that we make sure to keep everything tidy.
What to bring:
• Layers (it’s GGPark and tends to get chilly later in the evening)
• A positive & open attitude
• A chair or blanket to sit on
• Sportswear if you’re planning on playing soccer or a more active game!
• Food for yourself and possibly others!
*Feel free to bring any other drinks or games (no hard liquor or glass beer bottles though please).
EXTRA: We’re also going to have a little “walk/tour” through part of the park for anyone interested in seeing more of it(there’s tons of hidden gems in the park)!! The walk will take about an hour or so starting around 4:00pm.
Parking: There’s some parking available right on the street by our meeting place. There are also several buses that will take you to this part of the park.
The ONLY way this event will be postponed is if there is rainfall.
So come out, checkout the park, and make some new friends.
