San Francisco Meetup May 28, 2006 3:03 PM   Subscribe

I won't be able to attend the Portland meetup because on 6/3 I'll be leaving for San Francisco where I'll be until 6/10. If anyone would like to do a meetup on that week, let's discuss.

Our week is pretty open, but just to get things started, what about Thursday the 8th, somewhere downtown?

If by "somewhere downtown" you mean someplace a newbie like me can find from a BART station, I'm in.

Count me in, but I want somewhere convenient to a helipad, ok?

If you plan something, I will endeavor to show, but I can't make any promises as I may still be recovering from the 6/3 performance.

I'll be in Oakland on the 10th, I'm afraid.

will this be a real meetup or a cartoon meetup? or a real meetup documented in a cartoon?

I will drink beer at your meetup, human.

I will only drink beer at your meetup if its in San Francisco. (although I prefer sake).

A downtown, SF, bart-friendly meetup could induce me to drink beer.

Can people be talked into Zeitgeist? Or do we need downtown-downtown?
posted by occhiblu at 9:59 AM on May 29, 2006

I could be talked into Zeitgeist.

oakland on the 10th, cmonkey? you should come to roller derby, dogg.
posted by fishfucker at 6:55 PM on May 29, 2006

Man, I was wrong. I get to Oakland on the 7th, and leave on the 9th.

Uh, anyone want to get drunk on the 7th or 8th?
posted by cmonkey at 8:10 PM on May 29, 2006

i'll be coming into town on the eighth, but I have to work the next day. wheres all in oakland are you planning on being?

the email in my profile doesn't go anywhere because i'm awesome.

Oh, come on, cross the damn bridge.

i'd go to zeitgesit on a friday after work, but on a thursday I don't even get to Alameda until 8ish, so i sure as heck ain't getting on no dang ol bart out to the city.

of course, it's unlikely i'm going to show anyways, so i wouldn't want anyone to switch out of the thursday date for me.

fishfucker: I lied, it's actually Berkeley, on Durant. Near Shattuck. I wasn't in charge of this.

But it's near the downtown berkeley BART, so my offer of getting (mildly, work-safe) tanked still stands.

I'm getting lost. Are cmonkey et al derailing wobh's call for a meetup in SF with talk of their own meeting, or are they suggesting something in East Bay instead?
posted by Dunwitty at 12:33 AM on May 31, 2006

nah, cmonkey and I are trying to hash this shit out in the thread because I have a personal distaste for email. That shit's so web 1.0.

cmonkey: that'd be right by jupiter, which is a somewhat acceptable watering hole. i guess i'll mail you since we are confusing others.

i'd come to a thursday meetup in SF. where's zeitgeist?
posted by purplefiber at 6:03 PM on June 1, 2006

I'm also confused. We just did a meet-up in Oakland; cmonkey, are you willing to come into SF? Or are we just ignoring the East Bay drinking requests here?

Zeitgeist is at Valencia and Duboce, closest BART is 16th and Mission. Drinking would be outdoors, so bring jackets and sweaters. /mom voice

Is this a go?
posted by occhiblu at 6:54 PM on June 1, 2006

Zeitgeist is go. 8:00? 9:00?
posted by wobh at 6:34 PM on June 2, 2006

Maybe earlier? They have food (burgers and such), and people will probably show up late. I'd say 7pm, 8 at the latest.

Do you want to repost to the front page now that it's set? Right now, this thread kinda looks like a Portland meet-up.
posted by occhiblu at 10:10 AM on June 3, 2006

Wait, so what day is this happening?
posted by kenko at 10:44 PM on June 5, 2006

Thursday, the 8th, I believe.
posted by occhiblu at 11:14 PM on June 5, 2006

Oooh, if it were really early, I could come. Otherwise, I'd be up for some East Bay thing the following week. Or downtown? Would the following Thursday be enough of a break to pick up a couple of you SF folks that are going to Zeitgeist?
posted by salvia at 4:42 PM on June 6, 2006

I'd do it again in a week, but I'm East Bay anyway.
posted by Dunwitty at 5:39 PM on June 6, 2006

This really should have gotten a FPP, btw. I wonder what the viewing is like. We sort of took over caitlinb's MeTa thread, too.
