Post Bay to Breakers BBQ

5/19/13 Sun (12:00 PM - 5:00 PM)
Home of Daniel Marlay
1021 Divisadero St, San Francisco
Contact:Daniel Marlay (dmarlay [at] yahoo [dot] com)


The NorCal PCA will be walking in Bay to Breakers, so be sure to dig out your traditional outfit from your host country and represent! Keep your eyes on the NorCal PCA website and/or Facebook for details of how you can participate in the walk.

For after B2B, though, join NorCal for the post walk BBQ at the home of SF socials coordinator Daniel Marlay. Daniel lives on Divisadero, right near Alamo Square, so you can join him in Alamo Square around 10am or so to watch the end of the race. The dregs of the race pass Alamo Square around noon, so at that point, we'll peel back to Daniel's house and fire up the grill. So if you're walking in the race and decide you don't feel like doing the rest of it, hang out in Alamo Square for a bit. No judgment on people who bail. If you make it all the way to the end, great! You deserve a beer and some lunch. Just squeeze into the N Judah, get out at Duboce Park, and walk over.

This event is a fundraiser for the Northern California Peace Corps Association grants fund, so there is a suggested minimum donation of $10. $10 will cover some food and beverage, but it can't hurt to bring more meat, veggies, or sides to add to the party. Whatever is left over after costs will go to funding development projects abroad. See http://norcalpca.org/grants.cfm for info about the grants program.

Feel free to forward to friends, but please RSVP so we know how many people to plan for. RSVP by emailing Daniel, or on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/events/504076822986974/.

We are also looking for some volunteers to take 1 hour shifts at the front door, and at the bbq grill, so if you can take a shift, let us know.

Nearby bus lines include the 22, 38, the 5, the 21, the 31, AND the 2-4.
