I agree about the traffic..it stinks! If we do it at like 10:30 we could all play for a while then do lunch together?  :-\ That would be fun!!

WAY fun!!!  There's a dog-friendly cafe on Golden West on the way back to the 405....I think it's called the Park Bench.  Want me to call and see if we can get reservations?  for how many??  It's on the edge of a big park and I think there is a dog park there as well.  I can check it out if you'd like!

Hey everyone, Java would like to come, he loves the beach and adores swimming. We took him to Waikiki Beach all the time as a puppy before we moved here. We've never been to the HB dog park, we usually go to the Long Beach Dog Park, if everyone is concerned with it being crowded and cost of parking. The Dog Beach area at Long Beach is hardly ever crowded, and the parking is free if you go to the right section. But either way it sounds fun, so if we can we'll try to make it. What is the official final time and meeting place? Let us know!

Me too!  We've never been to either beach, so either sounds okay.  We're just looking forward to meeting everyone and their doggies!  How about meeting at 10:30 am?

10:30 sounds good to me.... are we meeting at the north enterance or the south?  I would love to go get lunch after!!!!  With such big dogs we are going to dominate the place..... 

As for the long beach dog park, parkign is much easier, but it is a lot smaller of an area.... supposedly no where near as cool as the HB one.  We go to the LB one all the time, but if the HB one is cooler, then we shoudl go there for all the visitors!!

The middle parking area is just above lifeguard station #22.  That seems to be the biggest lot.  Maybe there at 10:30?

I will plan on being there around 10:30 too.  But to be perfectly honest with you, this is a very popular surfer beach and if you arrive any time after 9:00 AM, it is very difficult to find a place to park.... even driving up a half a block on Goldenwest and parking in the residential area, it is difficult to park.  So, if I can't find any place to park @ 10:30, I won't be able to visit with you all.

If you park in the metered parking lots, bring a roll of quarters ($10.00)... you will probably use them all.

Thanks for the information. We'll be there with a bright pink sign (homemade of course) that will alert everyone of the location on the beach. They better watch out because the invasion of hte big dogs is coming there way! WooHoo!! I am so excited that I can hardly contain myself for this weekend!

Any news on the restaurant?
