San Diego Wiknic 2016

The San Diego Wiknic, the "picnic anyone can edit", will be held in Fanuel Street Park in Pacific Beach on Saturday July 9, 2016, as part of the Great American Wiknic celebrations being held across the United States.

There are no fire rings or permanent grills in the park, but there is a designated place to dispose of hot coals, which suggests that portable grills are welcome. There are several benches scattered about, but no picnic tables.

Please note: no alcohol or smoking in the park.

Please pick out what you can bring and add your name to the slot. You can volunteer to bring potluck food, supplies and recreations. Bring enough of what you want to share from your favorite store or kitchen or storage.


  • Main dishes
    • Curried chicken salad - a salad by name, but hearty enough to be a main; fresh fruit salad and crusty bread are good accompaniments, if anyone wants to bring them --Worldbruce (talk) 21:32, 28 June 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  2. I have not been very active on Wikipedia since July 2015, only contributing occasionally since. I have work until 1600PDT, and have to be at Point Loma Heights at 1700PDT, so I may stop by to say hi.--RightCowLeftCoast (talk) 23:38, 8 July 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
