Sat August 31 at 2:00 PM, Delores Park
Mission Dolores Park, San Francisco, CA, USA (Map & Directions)
To celebrate Burning Man, let's get together in the Mission and go places that are usually too crowded! I'm thinking Saturday afternoon. We could hit up Delores Park and Zeitgeist. Maybe Humphry Slocombe or Sycamore. The point is, we have more options than usual. What do you think?

Maybe - our weekend has developed some weirdly busy bits but I can't quite remember when they are or anything, so I'll have to wait until gingerbeer is awake and caffeinated.

Alas, I am dedicating my afternoon to my 97 year old great grandpa's birthday party. I could be talked into a Sunday brunch though!

This sounds great. I have a huge hard deadline right after the weekend, though, so the prospect of carving out playtime isn't looking good.

Sigh. One of these days I'll be done with school.

I'm a maybe because bridge closure so I'll have to see if I'm too lazy to take BART or not.

I work on Saturday, but if you do something on Sunday I may come, especially if it's in/near Dolores Park because I live there and I can bring my awesome dog.

I already have to be at Clarion Alley for a work thing on Saturday afternoon, so if you're at the Sycamore I'd stop by.

Any interest in the Exploratorium? The Bay Bridge closure should keep a lot of people besides grapesaresour out of the city, so museums might be less crowded too.

I have other plans on Sunday, unfortunately.

Visiting the Exploratorium sounds fun, but it's usually pretty great on Thursday nights - they call it Nightlife, right? - because kids aren't around then. It's sort of far away for this, but it's a good idea for another meetup.

I'm going for 2pm Saturday in Delores Park. People can drift in and out, and we can roam the landscape.

Unfortunately my house has reached critical mess and refuses to clean itself, so I must regretfully bow out.

Wow, it's sunny and gorgeous and not crowded. I'm near the ladies' room, reading a book, though I might step away for ice cream.

I'm taking off to Tacolicious soon.
