Post X 7/21[Sat] Darksider Picnic
Darksider picnic- bring your picnic stuff, kids, dogs, bikes, frisbees, bocce sets, and whatever else floats your little black boat to Minnehaha Falls park. 2 pm- whenever.

we need- a mascot/sign/something better than my deflating alien for a rallying point. We also need someone to bring a grill.

YAY!!

we should try to snag the end of a table with a grill on it.

I'm thinking a stuffed animal from a hangmans noose. . .

Great idea! I will come, kids too.

I don't have a grill, but I can bring something visible to hang.:)

i'd rather grill on someones brought grill than the questionable ones at that park...

the tables we got last time were perfect, and we should try for them again. there was enough shade and away from the other tables.

:cry: I am out of town the third weekend of every month. Last month was an exception.
My summers are pretty much crap. The only dates I have open are 14 and 15 and August 5, 12, 25, 26
After those get booked up then my entire summer will be full of work.
I work too much. way too much and somehow I don't have any money.

Hmm, I bet we can make these into monthly events. Sledding & skating in the winter of course (gods I miss the snow. . . even though today is beautiful).

Visit the poll to fill out the poll so the responsibility for the date selection in August is on everyone and not just Drok.

Nope, not dead yet. He and his band will be opening for Hank III at First Ave Aug. 8th, then he'll be crashing at my place where I will force him to sign things with a sharpie.

As a rule, I don't make plans past tomorrow. So I couldn't care less about when you schedule this.

but, there's another camping event being planned on this forum for about two weeks later. you'd think the goth meetup one could coincide with the darktwincities one... besides, there are only three people rsvp'd for the gothmeetup camping event.

Some location info from the previous month's thread, which I presume is still pertinent to this Saturday's gathering (July 21st)

my best guess would be for us to meet in the main picnic area, which is on the north side of the SeaSalt restaurant, just north of the falls.

if you take hiawatha to 46th street, take a left, take a right on Minnehaha, and go straight, you'll hit the picnic area.

if you follow the round-a-bout halfway round (so as if you were going straight, and it wasn't there) you will be driving perpendicular to hiawatha, and that is where all the good free parking is. then you just have to walk back towards the SeaSalt.

I believe we are trying to coordinate both camping weekends to be the same weekend. The problem I've encountered is finances. I don't have the $160 to front for the reservation at this moment anymore.

If people interested in going camping can bring $20 to the picnic, we could take reservations. Once we get $160, we can call the park and place the reservation. I'm guessing at this time that the only weekends available will be in late September or in October. Sorry everyone for not having a solid date yet.

i'm trying to picture you cooking hot dish. heh.

so the question is: is anyone bringing a grill this time? i don't have one, so i can't. i really do not want to use the park grill, and i need to plan tonight what i am bringing to eat tomorrow.

and my kidlets will be along with me this time!
