Dinner Party beneath the Golden Gate Bridge

Last month I reserved the day spot for Kirby Cove below the Golden Gate Bridge. So yesterday we hauled a bunch of stuff down to the beach and set up a dinner party. The trickiest part was figuring out the lighting since there are no plugs anywhere. We built a ‘T’ from a wooden pole and then strung battery operated Christmas lights overhead. The tea lights were also LEDs. We had a four course meal including Parsnip Soup, Salad, Risotto, Asparagus, and ice cream sundaes. We heated the food up on a burner at the day site and then brought the pots down to serve the food right before.

All the guests arrived at dusk and we watched as the sky got darker and the city lights got brighter. I don’t think you could have asked for better scenery (or better company.)

    Awesome! You're so lucky the weather cooperated — SF summer can be so iffy.
