Can’t wait to see y’all there… :rock :sunshine :sunshine

Better believe it Dave,

I am thinking about just booking my flight now, Southwest rocks it for damn cheap. It will be good to see you there and everyone else, where you staying? Last year we hosteled, which was nice, before that I have done a hotel share and the year before that a friend’s place. It would be cool to all be somewhat in the same neighborhood…

There is a house in San Francisco we can rent for $2200 for 3 nights. only 2 miles from Golden gate park.
6 bedrooms 5 bath. we can put 18 people in there.

mc hammer anyone?

no, seriously, that festival looks awesome :thumbsup
and a house with 18 festavarians for the show sounds like a sweet party :wink:

Hello Festivarian’s :wave

Hope everyone is having a great summer!

As many of you know the campground is still closed for this years Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival.

I have been trying to find a house that we could share next to Golden Gate park for the Festival.

First the bad news, The 6 bedroom for 16 people i found was rented when I returned home from RockyGrass : (

Now the good news,
I found a much better place just recently restored and made available for rent just this week, I have rented & paid in full for an 8 bedroom 6000 Square foot Luxury Mansion that sleeps 20. In the San Francisco Central Haight Ashbury district (it was the world famous Haight Ashbury Free Clinic) only 2 blocks from Golden Gate park!!! : )

The house is amazing.

If you want to book a room in the house please drop me an email. please be aware that payments for the rooms will be needed immediately, as I have paid in full already. Rooms will go to festivarians that have attended HSBF camping with our group previously, any space left will be offered to newbies.

Once I know who will take the rooms we can talk about food and drink options for the house, I am thinking about making the house an all in package with food and drink included.
Your thoughts are appreciated. also if some of you would like to arrive on thursday we could move in early if enough of us wanted to.
also if you are interested in touring wine country before the fest let me know, as I am thinking of renting a van and Connie has offered to be Designated driver for a tour of napa/sonoma.

The 2 suites in the house with private baths one with Jacuzzi and terrace will cost the most, the other rooms all huge with Queen beds will cost about $350 and is for up to 2 people per room for 3 nights. some rooms have an extra rollaway/Couch in them and can fit up to 4 people in a room.

There is Parking for 4 CARS in the Garage. Those will run $40 for the weekend per car. Parking in SF Hotels is about $50 per night!

Hippie Jerry, Karlos, Connie and I will be working on some tarp options and getting this all together. stay tuned for more info on that…

Is anyone getting excited yet???

Peace & Festival to you all…A J :pipe2
