there has been a problem over the last couple of months that the city, and OPD have not been allowing us to maintain a persistent presence at the plaza. We used to have food on hand almost 24/7. Now we mostly have to serve food and then leave as soon as possible to avoid having our utensils, tables etc confiscated.
There is almost always a food presence when there is a GA, action or march. Try stopping by Wednesdays at 6pm or Sundays at the 19th and Telegraph location, around 2pm.
I have been to the plaza several times in the past 2 months and not once have you OO been serving food, or even present for that matter. I am not being a snit, I was really looking forward to eating with you and trying to get what you are about. 🙁 So please let me know, when are you at the plaza?
