Hey everyone, today is the last day to RSVP:

We haven't chosen a date yet but the RSVP will let you expense your picnic
items if you are able to join us. Help us choose a date:

If anyone has specific accessibility requests, let me know so we can pick a
spot at Foster Beach with the best access.

> Sharon Bautista has kindly offered to host people at her house as a backup
> (thanks Sharon!). We all know that Chicago winter lasts until June 1st so
> maybe we'll get lucky if we plan it after that.
> *I want to join the ChillZilla picnic!*
> Excellent. The first thing is to please RSVP
> <> before *THIS FRIDAY, MAY 5th*.
> Say that you'll celebrate 'near other remoties' and choose 'Chicago
> Mozillians' as the group.
> *Where will it be?*
> Let's plan on Foster beach

> stop, Red Line) since it's close to Sharon. There are a couple options
> (sand or grass) so we'll get more specific closer to the date.
> *When will it be?*
> We can do it on a weekend or a weekday if folks can leave work a bit
> early. Maybe on a Friday? Here is a Doodle to see if we can come up with a
> date that works well for everyone...
> *Please select some dates that work for you*:
> I'm proposing to keep it really informal and have people show up anytime
> after 4pm (which is usually when shorties wake up from their naps). Let me
> know if anyone wants to try some different day/time options though.
> *What about food?*
> My current thinking is that we can just "have a picnic" where everyone
> brings some food to share. You would *need to keep your receipt and
> expense it yourself* on Expensify according to the instructions
> <> (which are pretty
> straightforward).
> Alternatively, does anyone think we should try to cater food? If so, I'll
> need some help planning what / how much to order and scheduling pickup but
> I'm open to the idea.
> If there's anyone who you think might not be on this list, please forward
> the email.
