Reminder: NYC-area bloggers' picnic, Sept. 14!

See here. Hope to see you there!

Update--Drew asked for more information, so here's some that I copied from my previous picnic post:

"I'd appreciate it if we could have an early dinner picnic, starting at around 3 PM, because the hubster may be teaching a college accounting class on Sunday until 3, and, if so, couldn't get there earlier than 3:30. Sunset is at approximately 6 PM.

The Punster and I went scouting for a good location in Central Park. We found a spot that, while visible from a few paths, is:

  • a bit off the beaten track, and far enough from the entrance path that our faces would not be recognizable (for those concerned about maintaining their anonymity)
  • close to the Diana Ross Playground at the 80th Street and Central Park West entrance (for those bringing kids)
  • only about (the functional equivalent of) a two-block walk to the Delacorte Theater ladies' and men's rooms (for the benefit of the youngsters and oldsters, particularly)
  • under the trees, for those of us (me!) who prefer shady spots."
I'll post more details next week.

Update, Thursday, September 11, 2008: Picnic rained in(doors).

A wonderful idea! I don't know if we can make it unfortunately, but we'll see.

Since you asked, Drew, I'm copying a chunk of the previous post into this one as an update. See above.

I'm sorry Shira, but I can't make it. TC and I had a change of plans, and I was in NY last Shabbat, so I won't be here this Shabbat. Have fun!

Bummer. Well, I hope you enjoyed spending last Shabbat in NY. Maybe we can get together the next time you're in town.

Sounds like a good idea. I don't know when that will be, because of the chagim, but I'll keep you posted.
