Other activities during reunion weekend

(1/2) > >>

There has been some discussion of other activities during the weekend, like Friday evening or Sunday.  Any ideas?

I've got a couple of proposals:
Friday (Aug 15)- Papa Doo Run Run is playing for free at the boardwalk stage (shows at 6 and 8PM).  Let's use that as a starting point.  We can meet near the group picnic area, which is behind the Cocoanut Grove as it meets the beach sand.  Bring your own delicious beverage (I'm sure there are alcohol restrictions- so be mindful of the container).
Sat (day) (Aug 16): There are at least a couple of folks staying in the valley.  So for those folks (of which I'm one) I propose meeting 9:30-11:30AM at Santana Row (used to be Town and Country) which has upscale shopping, food, and ambience- and also, every Saturday morning has a gathering (near the theater, in the back-most parking lot) of gear-heads who bring their Ferraris, Porsches, Lambos, Corvettes... and just yap about cars.  We stop shopping, eating or gawking Santana Row at 11:30, stop by Amato's and pick-up a great Philly steak sandwich (or whatever-wherever you want)  and head to Lynbrook for a picnic and walkabout.  We'll leave the school around 1:00 for a leisurely drive to Santa Cruz via Hiway 9, probably executing a rest stop in Ben Lomond at Henfling's or Don Quixote's.  We should arrive in Santa Cruz just after 3PM, giving folks a chance to find their hotels and get ready for the wing-ding at 6:30.
Sunday (Aug 17)- Brunch (maybe on the pier) has been suggested as well as golf (De La Viega?). 

Shopping at Sur La Table in Santana Row on Saturday morning !!!
            That is exactly where Charlotte & I will be.

I'm up for catching up with gear heads on Saturday and a nice drive over Hwy 9. I have an unfinished 66 Mustang coupe for sale in Aptos (at my son's house). If it doesn't sell by the time of the reunion I'm driving it back to Oregon. Mark Murray 503.756.2773

To say our goodbyes on Sunday, how about brunch at the Crow's Nest?  They open at 11:30, and have good proximity (it's on the south side of the harbor, just south of the boardwalk), parking, and ambience- nice place.  2 levels, outdoor deck.
I had eggs benedict yesterday on the Sacramento river.  Hmmm, I guess I already know what I'm going to order...
