Since Big Bang Coffee Shop remains closed for building renovations -- and since we've all been so busy and had several important successes -- we thought a potluck picnic would be the best thing to do for TOMORROW, Sunday, Aug 5.
Come to the Potluck Picnic at Vista Hermosa Natural Park!
Sunday, August 5
1:00 - 4:00 pm
100 N Toluca St, Los Angeles (Toluca and 1st St)
Picnic tables at Northwest corner of the park
This little park just west of downtown is beautiful, new and quiet, with impressive views of the city and lots of sage and native California brush. It has several picnic tables tucked away in the shade that would be perfect for a potluck -- no BBQ pits, however. (We'll plan a BBQ for later in the summer.) There are open fields, a soccer field, and well-groomed hiking trails too.
Please bring your favorite picnic food to share ... salad, potato salad, fried chicken, corn on the cob, watermelon, fruit salad, cheese and crackers, cookies, brownies, salsa and chips, tamales ... whatever you'd enjoy eating and sharing. (Many of the group are vegetarians, so veggie options are most welcome.)
We'll gather at the picnic tables in the northwest corner of the park in the Upper Field to the left of the grotto / amphitheater / waterfall area.
There are several gates into the park -- North, South and West. The ample parking lot is off Toluca Street at the West Gate and there's a nice park building with a few rangers to answer questions.
The park is wheelchair accessible and close to bus lines on either Temple St or Beverly Blvd / 1st St. Alternatively, it's about a 20 min walk from Civic Center Metro Station.
