    Hang out at the top of the park and listen to 107.9 FM. It's like Art Bell never left for the Philippines.

    One of my most favorite places in the city to hang with friends and drink Mimosas on a Sunday afternoon. Don't forget to check out the hunky Jesus contest on Easter Day!

    Pop across the street to Dolores Park Café for Happy Hour from 4-7pm daily for $3 draft beers and $5 glasses of wine or sangria. Or, for delicious ice cream, Bi-Rite Creamery is also nearby. Read more

    Tune into radio nonchalance 107.9 fm for a trip full of undersea monkey business and enlightenment. Only available in Dolores park.

    Mission Dolores Park is a beautiful Park and can be even an excellent Park when party goers would pick up their trash where they leave the park. And keep Dolores Park beautiful for everyone.

    Go early for best spots, bring a blanket, and a speaker. Don't be that person who brings a loud dog to gay beach, you will have some queen (me) go off on you

    Screw all the local overpriced overcrowded favorites (aka tartine, bi-rite) get your stuff on mission and buy things from the awesome park vendors- sometimes the brownies come with a hug and a kiss!
