This here is a Potluck BBQ...
Bring something for the grill, or a dish to share, or drinks to share.

*What: "BBQ A NEWBIE" Pic-i-nic.
*Where: Pioneer Log Cabin, Golden Gate Park, San Francisco.
*When: SATURDAY JUNE 16th, 2007, 11am-6pm.
*How: By Car, Bike, Bus or Foot. The Log Cabin area is plainly visible 
from the 'Y' where Stowe Lake Drive branches off of JFK. It is just to
the west of the new DeYoung. (Detailed Directions at the end of this e-mail)

Due to the new saturday traffic policy in GGP, JFK will be closed near 
our site, this will impact parking, so it is recommended that you take
transit or carpool. Riding your bike is great too, especially if you
are carrying a covered dish.
*Walking: Our pic-i-nic site is near the Rose Garden entrance of the 
park, where you can walk from Fulton Street.
*Parking in the Park: the De Young Museum parking lot is just east of
the picnic area, and accessible off Fulton Street at 10th Ave for
$3/hr, there will also be a limited amount of free parking on Stowe 
Lake Drive and on MLK. A drop-off site will be established on Stowe
Lake Drive.
*Transit: Muni's 5, 28, 29, and 44 bus lines stop close by.
**A "Burner Bike Ferry" will be operating on JFK!!!!!!**
