San Francisco meetup? September 29, 2005 3:50 PM   Subscribe

Hey, San Francisco, come have a drink with me - oh, say, Thursday, October 13th, from 7 PM on, at a venue to be determined. Do you have a suggestion? Please step inside and share it.

My favorite is Zeitgeist. Lots of room and big ole burgers! Also, beer.

ocean beach bonfire.

I love Zeitgeist like a high-school girl loves a kitten. Or a puppy. But - amazing as it may seem - this opinion is in the minority, and our last one was there.

I am completely cool with the Ocean Beach bonfire, as long as someone else takes responsibility for the logistics.

I am happy with the Beach Chalet (near Ocean Beach - and with beer!), as long as there is no complaining about how far away it is. My heavens, people, it's on the N line - like every other wonderful thing in San Francisco.

But I would also love to hear about your favorite spots that offer alcohol, a bite of food, and room to loll around and chat.

[Light suitable for photography is completely optional. And perhaps even undesirable.]

power exchange.

Ack! The last three SF meetups have been on Thursday. I can't do Thursdays. I'd consider schlepping out to Ocean Beach to freeze my *** off in front of some bonfire, but not on a Thursday.

Well, I do love Thursdays, but I also love you, ambrosia, so how about Wednesday, October the 12th?
posted by caitlinb at 4:42 PM on September 29, 2005

yay! Wednesday, October 12 works for me. Thanks, caitlinb!

If it's not a ginormous crowd, Frjtz in Hayes Valley is fun (and BART-friendly...)

An enthusiastic thumbs-up for Frjtz. Crepes + Chimay: Mmm...

Discount my vote, however -- I'll be traveling. Bummed to miss my second-ever meetup opportunity. But have fun y'all.

have you guys done lucky 13 yet?

lucky 13 has a patio AND an awesome jukebox AND pinball AND delirium tremens on tap AND rockabilly kids AND area 51.

no food though, but FREE POPCORN (or like, 25 cents a bowl. whatever.)

The 12th works for me; all locations mentioned above work for me.

I'm easy, it seems.

3rd for Frjtz. Awesome joint. We should have a contingency plan though as it can be tight. Odds are probably good on a Weds. if we get there as close as possible to Miller Time.

I would probably turn up at the Lucky 13 also, if it would entice FishFucker out of his hatchery, but it's not a personal fave.

nah, i can't come unless we go to the power exchange.

plus if i go up there and visit a bunch of "online friends" instead of hanging out with my girlfriend, there will be hell to pay.

another time, fishfriends, another time.

Why not bring your girlfriend? What's wrong? We aren't good enough to meet her? Hmm?

Anyway, I am pretty sure you have to bring a chick with you to get into the Power Exchange, anyway.
posted by caitlinb at 10:33 PM on September 29, 2005

Not that I have personal knowledge or anything, but I believe single men *can* get into the power exchange, it's just more expensive (nsfw link).

And, just fyi, the evening of the 12th is the beginning of Yom Kippur - so make sure you get some atonement in with those beers!

People who don't know people only from online think that knowing people from only from online is weird.

them's the facts.

someday i'll sneak out though.

cue sneaky music.

doot, doot, doot, doot, dooooooo, doot doot doot doot.

Heh, fishfucker, that made me laugh, but it's oh so true.

I'd love to catch up with the gang, though it'll be much later in the evening. Maybe I'll work out some sort of phone coordination closer to the date. I also wanted to add that the lovely miss Specklet will be in town later that week, should anyone want to join us in that round of socializing. More deets to come soon.

And finally: DaShiv's photography + the power exchange. The mind fairly boggles.
posted by Frisbee Girl at 11:28 AM on September 30, 2005

Should we go after Thursday then, and make Specklet our Special Guest? I can go for that.
posted by caitlinb at 12:05 PM on September 30, 2005

I am a sad panda. I will be out of town. Pour one on the curb for me.
posted by jewzilla at 4:49 PM on September 30, 2005

I may be down
posted by johngoren at 8:19 PM on September 30, 2005

(esp. if it's Ocean Beach, i love that place)
posted by johngoren at 8:21 PM on September 30, 2005

i will be in town from oct 21-24. can you all wait for me?
posted by naxosaxur at 10:46 AM on October 5, 2005

I vote for waiting for the awesome naxosaxur!!!
posted by jasper411 at 2:45 PM on October 5, 2005

But by the 21st, I will be gone. Poop.
posted by Specklet at 4:44 PM on October 5, 2005

Did you ever notice that you never see Naxos and Specklet in the same room together?

Anyway, we will absolutely welcome you into our MeFi arms, Naxos, depend on it.
posted by caitlinb at 8:50 AM on October 6, 2005

So, uh, what's the plan? Is it Wednesday, or are we waiting for Specklet? Or are we waiting for naxosaxur? Both? Neither?

enquiring minds want to know!
posted by ambrosia at 2:29 PM on October 10, 2005

Well, I don't know about youse guys, but some of us are going to get together on Thursday, but I'd understand completely if you wait for naxosaxur. Who apparently is a doppelganger of mine.
