Sun November 11 at 7:00 PM, Trad'r Sam
6150 Geary Blvd, San Francisco, CA, USA (Map & Directions)
I am again visiting your fine city and would like to meet the lovely MeFi SF crowd. Let's meet up at Trad'r Sam tiki bar! Note well: cash only.

Sort of making this up as I go along, but maybe an Inner Sunset location would be good? (This is complicated by the fact that I don't know a damn thing about the Inner Sunset.)

Ugh. The Avenues? I may attend under protest.

If we want to do a bar thing, may I suggest someplace like Rickhouse? Easily accessible even from the Richmond by means of the 38, and pouring a selection of delicious cocktails.

There's Trad'r Sam's, a Tiki bar about a mile west of there. I haven't been there for forever and don't remember if it's any good, but it gets some stars (four of them) on yelp. *shrug*

I think I might like to do this thing.

Trad'r Sam's is a brilliant idea for a Richmond meetup. Count me in for a Scorpion Bowl. Variety of Asian, American, Mexican (is Tommy's still there?), etc. restaurants nearby as well.

We don't have to meet in the Avenues. I'd just prefer it if we met somewhere that wasn't super inconvenient to get to from there.

I consistently claim an interest in showing up to these things, then fail to show.

I am determined to break this habit. I will try to show up to this, Avenues or no.

Nthing all the love being thrown at Trad'r Sam! It's a perfect place for a meetup!!!

As a resident of the Avenues, I may just have to attend. Tradr Sam's is nothing but fun!

It is however, cash only.

Oh that's definitely good to know ahead of time.

It's my fiance's bday that day so I probably will not be able to attend

Clement street is chock-a-block with awesome options. there are some good Irish bars a short distance of grouse's visitor-abode. Trad'r Sam used to be wondrous, though i haven't been in years. i've heard it can get a bit frat-boy/colonized on weekend nights - but a Sunday could be much quieter, a potentially excellent strategy.

i always think i'll attend meetups and then wimp out. i live way out on the west side and downtown can be a trek. Trad'r Sam is on a major bus line for me so... hmmm. i might show.

I might be up for this. Trad'r Sam's sounds good to me.

Trad'r Sam it is!

I've been wanting to attend a meet-up since I moved to SF, I've also heard nothing but good things about Trad'r Sam. Is this an open invitation?
posted by mikoroshi at 9:52 PM on November 5, 2012


Add me as a resounding "maybe!"
posted by jander03 at 9:56 PM on November 5, 2012


mikoroshi: Meetups are an open invitation always, unless one says something about space being really limited or something. You should join us!

I'm in. Fruity drinks for some, miniature umbrellas for others.

I'll be all set if it miniature rains!

It is faaaaaaaaar from BART, but I may be able to make it.
posted by potsmokinghippieoverlord at 7:20 PM on November 7, 2012


It seems to be a relatively straight shot via bus, which is how we're planning to come. (PBZM has already started muttering about "maybe we get a cab", but that seems a bit pricey to save not a whole lot of time. Maybe on the way back to BART, if a couple other folks want to share.)
posted by Lexica at 8:43 PM on November 7, 2012


Lexica: take the 38-Geary from Embarcadero (or Montgomery; I don't remember exactly where the 38 stops downtown). It's a long ride, but it's hard to fuck up.

(If you're the sort that likes to use NextBus, when you get downtown see if the 1-California or the 31-Balboa is coming; you'll have to walk a few minutes but it might be worth it if it just happens that the 1 or the 31 is about to leave and you just missed the 38. Why the hell do I know this? I don't live in the Richmond.)

Add one random Brit. Don't worry another week and you'll be shot of me.

Sounds fun!

I called a couple of days ago and double-checked: Trad'r Sam is open on Sundays. See you all tonight!
posted by grouse at 7:54 AM on November 11, 2012


We're very sorry, but due to incipient colds for both of us, and gingerbeer leaving town for a week tomorrow, we're bagging. I'm sorry to have missed you, grouse! But I don't know when you go back, so ping me if you're around for another couple days and maybe we say hey before you go back home.
posted by rtha at 6:08 PM on November 11, 2012


I'm on the 38 now. Sad we won't see you guys, rtha & gingerbeer
posted by aubilenon at 6:32 PM on November 11, 2012


Us too you all!
posted by rtha at 6:40 PM on November 11, 2012


PBZM & Lexica are on the BART platform in Oaktown. Gonna hop a cab from Embarcadero
posted by Pirate-Bartender-Zombie-Monkey at 6:53 PM on November 11, 2012


Sorry I will miss rtha and gingerbeer! We are on the right as you come in, in the southeast corner of the room.

We'll be the ones in fedoras. Taxi now.

I'll get there in half an hour or so.
