On Monday Kati turns 21 and finally closes out the remains of the
underage so we should do something. That something, I propose, is
brunch at the Strybing Arboretum in Golden Gate Park followed by a walk
around the Japanese Tea Garden on Sunday. So to be clear, Monday is
birthday, Sunday is brunch in golden gate park.
At 11:30AM this Sunday the 10th we meet at the entrance to the Strybing
Arboretum & Botanical Gardens where Tea Garden Drive meets Martin
Luther King Jr. Dr. in Golden Gate Park.
Once everyone's there we can head into the Botanical Garden and find a
place to have some brunch.
After brunch we can walk across to the Japanese tea garden and have tea.
