Urban Picnic!

"The Picnic" by Thomas Cole (1846). The 2013 AIA-SWO/CSI-WVC picnic will be just like this (except for the fact it will take place on top of a parking structure in downtown Eugene)
Summer’s wonderfully sunny weather beckons us outdoors for a myriad of warm-weather activities. Not surprisingly, gluing my rear end to the chair in front of our computer to write a blog post hasn’t been high on my list of seasonal priorities. This is especially true when home projects and work commitments also rightfully demand my time and attention. 

Fortunately, this brief entry is all about helping make the most of your summer. Mark your calendars: the AIA-Southwestern Oregon & Willamette Valley Chapter CSI picnic will take place on Wednesday, July 17 from 5:30 to 8:00 PM. Join us as we celebrate summer in the city by storming the rooftop of the Parcade at 8th & Willamette in downtown Eugene!

This creative twist on a venerable summer tradition is sure to be memorable. The menu will feature refreshing beverages, tacos with all the fixins, frozen yogurt treats, and generous urban panoramas bathed in the warm glow of midsummer’s setting sun. The picnic’s organizers and Design|Spring have lined up a design charrette and a tug-of-war, and other enjoyable activities. All in all, the picnic promises family friendly fun for everyone connected with AIA-SWO and CSI-WVC. Don’t miss it!
