We usually bring large Starbucks thermos / mugs too and make our own iced tea and bring that along. Hey, I'm all for saving money and playing it safe.

By the way, we're in Orinda...you're just over the hill from us. My grandmother lives in Brentwood.
Hi Triton,
See that is what I like about these boards. So many good tips. Nveer thought of "shopping" on the breakfast buffet. Great idea. Orinda yes we are almost neighbors. I work in Concord and live in an older area of Antioch. :-) Carol
