Dry ice in Oakland/Berkeley?
Taking 150 kids on a picnic at Lake Temescal today and need to keep our popsicles frozen. The gas station at West Grand and Market where I used to pick up dry ice is closed (a major disappointment at 7:00 this morning). I'm hoping to find dry ice without having to head out to the Coliseum area or Richmond. Replies after 11:00 AM are probably too late.
although it may be too late...the Lucky's at El Cerrito Plaza sells dry ice.

If one needs dry ice in quantity, the least expensive way to do this in my experience has been to get it at Praxair. They have facilities in all over the Bay Area. They're closed on weekends.
