Consider this: Be considerate

*** this post is late. by a while. don’t worry the words were written in a timely fashion, it was just never published. sorry ***

4 Square happened. I wasn’t there to take pictures, take down names or blog about it. No worries, New York was beautiful and they’ve got their own 4 Square NYC thing going on out there, so their was a feeling of unity across thousands of miles. Justin took home the win and posed for this picture at the end of the night.

At this point, it’s time to remind folks that while 4 Square of the East Bay loves to have fun and everyone is invited, we don’t invite disrespect to our space or to our people. 4SEB offers a unique avenue for socializing that functions on a culture of welcome and respect. If you feel like you need to be a dick (or an asshole) please don’t show up. If you come with people who are acting out of line, please, be their friend and check them so they don’t make things uncomfortable to others. As a non-sanctioned activity that takes place on semi-public property, 4SEB would like to inflict the least amount of damage on our surroundings. While we cannot regulate your intake of alcohol and other substances, we ask that you regulate yourself and be in control. We are not opposed to consumption, but everyone is opposed to obnoxious, belligerent behavior. Our square is open to all, including kids so keep that in mind. Our event is a fun, friendly environment that will not benefit from inconsiderate people trying to get wasted and cause trouble. Be responsible, be respectful, be nice and have fun. Those aren’t the hardest rules to follow, are they? 4SEB trusts that the people who show up understand and uphold the unique culture that we have worked hard to create and will continue to reinforce these ideas.

Now, that the serious message stuff is out of the way, 4SEB needs to give a great shout out to Robert for holding it down at the Old Oakland Beer Festival on Saturday, October 16th! He got there, set up the square, drank beer and played for hours with the friendly people of Oakland. We love being invited to stuff to facilitate games and getting drinks ain’t too bad either. Let’s just hope that no one got sloppy and skinned their knees.

That’s it! Sorry this post is a little late, but life happens. Plus, how many of you out there are reliant on this blog to survive? Hmm, maybe that question is better left unanswered… remember, BE CONSIDERATE of others around you, of your actions and your impact on the spaces you pass through. 4 Square East Bay wants to keep happening, don’t get us kicked out because of jerky behavior.
