It’s that time again: The Return of DayDrinking™

My friend Daisy – official founder of DayDrinking™ – has been kind
enough to compile a list of this summer’s awesome happenings so we can
plan accordingly. Of course, with any good DayDrinking™ event, one
must consider the following "Three A’s" rule of DayDrinking™:

1. Attire – an
appropriate DayDrinking™ outfit for a woman usually involves
something fun, semi-casual and comfortable. Of course, you are EVEN
CUTER DayDrinking™ than you thought you were before you left for
said event (an exciting side-effect of alcohol consumption) but it
never hurts to wear a dress. Cuteness is encouraged. (Guys, I know you
agree.) For you lads, DayDrinking™ outfits are basically what y’all
wear anyway; vintage-inspired/quirky saying t-shirt and either
jeans/shorts (depending on the weather.) Rainbow flip-flops are the
official footwear for both genders.

2. Accessories
DayDrinking™ can occur intentionally or unintentionally. Summer
brunches often turn into Mimosa-fests that easily segueway into Dolores
Park happenings or perhaps, on the nicest days, an afternoon at the
beach. The point is, plan accordingly. All vehicles (cars/Vespas)
should now be stocked with the essentials: frisbee, blankets, coolers,
sunglasses, sunscreen.

3. Attitude
– This sport is all about spontaneity. You must be able to roll with
the punches (sunny days quickly becoming overcast, lack of parking,
getting too tipsy to attend your friends’ chi-chi party, to name a
few). Above all else, one must be FLEXIBLE and open to the challenge.
Consider it your own personal Adventure Time
and if the crowd wants to head to Stinson, to Stinson you will go. It’s
easy to get bogged down with details (trying to assemble or meet up
with a big group can be VERY hectic – small groups work best for
DayDrinking™) so keep the task at hand in mind: DayDrinking™ is
about Drinking in the Daytime (while enjoying various activities, many
of which are listed below.)

Now that you know the tenets of this widely-popular sport, it’s time to
start planning your activities. Details and links below; but remember, Attire. Accessories. Attitude.

Go forth and DayDrink™ with the best of them. And, trust us, we’ll see ya there. We just may not remember it.
