beaches for birthdays

augustiner | Jul 28, 2008 03:22 AM

i'm trying to plan a birthday party over the weekend of the 9th of august, and i'm thinking of picking out a beach for an afternoon event. problem is that unfortunately i'm quite ignorant about our many local beaches, and i thought i'd pose it to you guys.

i'm thinking of a place that can accomodate about 15-20 people on a saturday afternoon, hopefully not more than a half-hour to forty five minute drive from san francisco that is open to possible beach fires, but more importantly, grilling, and picnic worthy tables? just wondering if there are any that would fit the criteria, and also may have available grills, access to facilities, etc, which i'm already supposing isn't really an option. sorry if these are silly questions, but i'm just not a beach person.

also, if any beaches come to mind, if anyone could point out any good local, cheap-ish and unique places nearby to eat at otherwise, or at least links to relevant threads, i'd appreciate it. sorry, but i haven't had much time to research. type of food isn't really important. a taco truck. a diner. local bar with good pub grub.

thanks in advance, and if i can make it work, at least in a chowhound relevant manner, i'll be sure to get back.
