A Righteous Good Time Was Had By All

A grand Celebration Of Life took place on Saturday, October 1, 2011, at the Josephine Randall Museum in San Francisco. Hundreds of Peter Berg’s friends, compatriots, family, comrades and acquaintances came together to share the passing of a legend.

This post blog will be a place for participants to put comments on this event. If you have photos, please send digital copies to: mail@planetdrum.org so that we can create a gallery of images. We are hoping to be able to post portions of the video record of the event.

    What: A Celebration of Life in Peter’s Honor

    When: October 1, 2011 beginning at 5:00 pm.

    Where: The Josephine P. Randall Jr. Museum. Josephine left this place to the city so that future children of San Francisco would know what the area was like in its more wild, natural state. It’s at the geographic center of the city. (See directions below.)

    Carte de Venue & Street Menu: At 6:15-7:00 pm we’ll climb to the top of the red rocks to sing the sun down. At 11:00 pm we’ll depart from the museum.

    We’ll eat (finger food), drink, and call for Peter to join us. There will be tributes, rants, stories, one-liners, poems, presentations, and music. Dress up or down to celebrate the fashionista side of Peter. Let’s make this an event that Peter would love! Peter Berg was a very public person, social interactions were his forte.
    Come gather and do some visitin’ in his honor.
