Sun December 30 at 11:00 AM, Rosamunde
2832 Mission Street, San Francisco, CA, USA (Map & Directions)
Update: we have confirmed brunch plans for Sunday, Dec. 30! Rosamunde in Mission (link above).
I'm going to be in the Bay Area for a couple days around New Years, but my brother (who I usually spend my time with while visiting the area) is going to be out of town. What's to do? Who to share meals with? Let me know if you're up for other meetups as well as the confirmed Sunday brunch?

We might be going out to see the elephant seals at Ano Nuevo on New Years. Let me know and I'll keep you posted.

Possibly?

What part of the Bay Area are you staying in?
posted by Pecinpah at 7:34 PM on December 26, 2012


I'm in the Union Square neighborhood, staying at a hostel there.

I'm around and I'd be down for grabbing drinks sometime. Depends on the day. What days are you free to hang out with folks?

Drinks, lunch, brunch, dinner - what days/times might work for you?
posted by jasper411 at 8:27 PM on December 27, 2012


Days when I am in SF and do not yet have anything scheduled or tentatively scheduled include Dec. 30, 31, and Jan. 2.

I am a big fan of brunch! (Brunch can also include drinks.) Has there ever been a metafilter brunch meetup? We could inaugurate such a thing. I would need something with a vegetarian option, and not *too* pricey.

Are there any community potluck meals, movies/music in public parks, or such going on during my visit?

I could hang out tomorrow or Sunday. If it isn't rainy, I'm going to do free outdoor yoga in Golden Gate Park for the first time.

MeMail me if you'd like to join.

I'm also around, in the Mission. Would be down for brunch on Sunday or other Sunday things like drinks!

Has there ever been a metafilter brunch meetup?

yep. It was a long, hazy day of drinking.
posted by special-k at 12:46 AM on December 29, 2012


I could be down for another brunch meetup, provided there are safeguards in place to make sure I get my gyoza.

You're never going to forget, are you?

Weee time travel! (I left Hong Kong Saturday at 12:30pm, and arrived in San Francisco around 8:00am the same day!)

Looks like I missed yoga in the park though. Brunch on Sunday sounds good though. 11am? Location suggestion?

Rosamunde in the mission? They do have vegan options
posted by special-k at 5:20 PM on December 29, 2012


Apparently our requirements include: veg-friendly traditional brunch fare, gyozas, and mimosas/kir royals/other brunch cocktails... might be slightly tricky:-P

If this doesn't come together for tomorrow, who's available Monday or Wednesday (doesn't have to be the same time)? Or we could try for later in the day tomorrow.
posted by eviemath at 5:21 PM on December 29, 2012


Ignore the gyoza, this place does have mimosas though. brunch without a long wait is tricky for a large party. Not sure how many of us are in for this one.
posted by special-k at 5:23 PM on December 29, 2012


sycamore is another option.

I am interested in your ideas, and may subscribe to your newsletter.

This Rosamunde options sounds decent. Would it be better to arrive closer to their opening time of 10:00? At the least, let's congregate there; I'm sure that there will be restaurants serving hearty Mexican brunches and hot chocolate nearby as a fallback option?
posted by eviemath at 6:41 PM on December 29, 2012


Some other options in the Mission, from a quick web search:
Red Cafe
Boogaloo
Craftsman & Wolves

Somebody's list of best "secret" brunch spots
posted by eviemath at 7:18 PM on December 29, 2012


Rosamunde should be fine. 10 is too early. Maybe 11.
posted by special-k at 7:43 PM on December 29, 2012


Updated and moved to an actual planned meetup.
posted by eviemath at 8:53 PM on December 29, 2012


Wait, are you guys at Rosamunde now? If you are I'll put on pants.
posted by madcaptenor at 9:49 PM on December 29, 2012


Now that I actually read the whole thread, it looks like this is for brunch tomorrow morning. I'm probably in, but what time?
posted by madcaptenor at 10:05 PM on December 29, 2012


I vote for like 11 or noon, because I am slow in the morning each and every time I can be. (And yeah right now it says it's already happened.)
posted by grapesaresour at 10:19 PM on December 29, 2012


It's an easy mistake to make (I do it all the time). But I'm pretty sure this is for tomorrow at 11.
posted by special-k at 10:22 PM on December 29, 2012


or noon. noon is better. I am not a morning person.

But Special K is a morning food.

Darn. Sorry to miss this. Was a small chance I could have made this direct from the airport but my flight was cancelled and now I live in NY apparently

danny: Are you going to arrange for your replacement or do we have to find one ourselves?

mollymayhem: we miss you! you should come.

Not gonna make it at 11 sharp, but we'll be there.

Just saw this. Still in jammies, also suffering from a cold. Hi everybody, and have fun!

Nothing like a barrage of texts from brunching mefites to get one out of bed! We are showering and considering leaving the house.

Okay, we will try. I have showered; gingerbeer is about to. Nobody hug me unless you want this...thing. Which you don't. It made me miss the X show last night.

And now...ice cream!

This cold is still making me feel like shit, but thanks to you all, I no longer care! WIN!!!

Moar B12 and vitamin C. If that doesn't improve stuff then more mimosas.

Thanks for rallying!

Aargh, I can't believe it, I just saw this, and I could totally have made it! Rats! Hope everyone had fun!

Dammit, I forgot what day it was, with the holidays and all. Completely missed this.

Thanks everyone. Great brunch and ice cream, and even better company! :-)
