Diners are encouraged to bring their own blankets but it doesn’t have to be a BYOB event: roving vendors will be selling Bloody Marys, Mimosas and Irish coffee blanket-side. Sounds like it’s going to be a bit of a three-ring circus. Retail vendors will also be hawking hot sauces, pickles and fresh fruits and vegetables and activity kits such as bocce ball, croquet, horseshoes and kites will be available for rent. Picnickers can even rent or purchase blankets and weather appropriate clothing just in case the Indian summer weather they were counting on turns foggy. We’re told that troubadours and newspaper vendors will also be wandering the lawn to further the spectacle-like atmosphere.
Every Sunday in October beginning October 7, from 11 AM- 4 PM on the Main Post of the Presidio Lawn (next to the Montgomery St barracks); for a complete list of participating vendors and a map of the location, check out the Facebook page.
