*** Chowing with the Hounds Picnic -- 30 Days and Counting ***

The Picnic Hounds | Sep 9, 200412:53 PM

The 2004 Chowing with the Hounds Picnic is just 30 days away! Registration is now open and will close in a little over two weeks on September 27th. Sign up now so you don't miss out!

Below are some of the great things to expect at the picnic. See the Chowing With The Hounds website for more details.

WHEN: Saturday, October 9th, 2004, from 11:00am to 4:00pm.

WHERE: Golden Gate Park, San Francisco. The exact site location and directions will be e-mailed to registered participants.

WHO: Both old-timers and newcomers, frequent posters and occasional readers, are encouraged to attend! Chowhounds are fun and friendly people who will make you feel welcome. Invitations extend to one Chowhound, plus a spouse or a friend, and their children.

WHY: To have a great time, eat some great food, drink some great wine, and all the while, raise money for, thus ensuring the survival and quality of our quest for great food.

COST: The cost is a $30 donation per adult. One child under 12 is free for each paid adult admission.

Food Contest
The main event of the picnic! Each adult is asked to bring a dish--either homemade or from a favorite food establishment--to share with others. Then everyone will vote for the most delectable of delectables -- so make sure to bring enough for everyone to get a taste! Certificates will be awarded for achievement in the following categories: appetizer, entrée, side dish, bread, dessert, and non-alcoholic beverage. Additionally, prizes will be awarded for the overall favorite entry and best store-bought discovery.

Tastings & Demonstrations
At previous picnics, we have held a cheese identification contest, an olive oil tasting, and last year, a fabulous apple seminar. What will it be this year?

Cookbook Exchange
Bring a used cookbook to the picnic and we’ll have a big ol’ book-swapping.

Let’s gather and chow!
