Dirk Gently's Holistic Picnic


The traditional Dirk Gently’s Holistic Picnic takes place next Saturday (August 18). The gathering is at the Helsinki railway station, under the departing local trains sign, at 2 PM. Free attendance; you’ll need some money, the Helsinki trains timetable, and salted peanuts. The destination will be determined using the Helsinki maps in the phone book and flipping a coin.

We love the Dirk Gently books -- if we were in Helsinki I'd seriously think about this. Trains, picnic, SF silliness -- win.
