GDC meetup with hellojed

Fri March 9 at 7:00 PM, Smugglers Cove
650 Gough St, San Francisco, CA, USA (Map & Directions)
Mefi's own hellojed is in town this week for the GDC. I was lucky enough to get an evening out with this fine man, and we had such a good time, we decided that we must do it again before he leaves.
He leaves Saturday morning, so if you're free Friday evening, join us! I'm driving up Friday afternoon so that we can visit the Golden Gate Bridge and find some other fun stuff to do. I think Hellojed (or Leo, as he is sometimes called) mentioned wanting to go to Smuggler's Cove for drinks, so if possible, let's do that.

We're open as far as time goes, and if you want to come along to visit the bridge feel free to join!

UPDATE: We're planning on Smugglers Cove at 7pm, and may move someplace close by if it gets too crowded, or if people still want to meet later.

Hmm! I may or may not be able to make it depending on what other GDC-related stuff I get roped into. If I do I'll remember to bring that thing that I need to get back to you.

He's leaving Saturday morning? What perfectly awful timing.

I might be free Friday evening, and if I am will probably join you.

Dang, sounds like fun. Though not enough lead time, alas, for me to juggle plans for this evening. Have fun, mefites! Schedule more stuff like this! hellojed, you're free to fly back next week, right?

What about an early Saturday breakfast for those of who are otherwise occupied but plan on being up all night.

I'm working at GDC on Friday night--update the thread as to where you all end up! I'll try and swing by for a beverage after I get off.

I would also be up for a breakfast meetup. Unless my bed is too comfy.

Politikitty, I will be right over with a box of thumbtacks to sprinkle in your bed. Or maybe just cracker crumbs.

I'm supposed to meet a couple friends, who are in town for GDC, for drinks tonight, so I'll see how they feel about People From the Internet and rum. Update when drinks are going to happen!

Yes, keep the thread updated for if plans get made. (But I am tired, so I am probably going to stay in tonight. But one never knows.)

I should mention my plane leaves at like 6:00 AM (!!!) Tomorrow.

I think we should shoot for...6pm ish? Maybe get dinner or something. Did anyone working the conference want to meet nearby the moscone center?

Easiest way to get hold of me is to hit me up on twitter, since it'll ding to my phone

I took a quick twitter survey and was informed that Smugglers Cove is awesome, but small. I'm thinking 7ish, and then if it gets busier, we can migrate someplace else so others can join. I'll go ahead and update this post to confirm.

6am? Is that a time of day?
posted by loriginedumonde at 4:30 PM on March 9, 2012

Otherwise known as 18 PM.

So my other gdc plans, which may or may not come together, are at smuggler's cove.

So I guess that means I'm in!

If there's a food plan I'll see whether I get re-energized in time, but I'm totally in for yummy tiki drinks. I am excited to have a Dead Reckoning.

Out of curiosity, by "early Saturday breakfast," exactly how early are we talking about?
posted by Pronoiac at 6:57 PM on March 9, 2012

Hey, me and sambo are eating nearby. We should be in around 7:30
posted by hellojed at 7:04 PM on March 9, 2012

I'm there, it's tiny, & seating even four people together looks really painful. I think that the bar we went to when grouse visited might be a good fallback.

We're in the Smuggler's Cove basement.

don't listen to pronoiac. we're still here. there's about a 15 minute wait to get in, but come on over. plus we're gonna watch Archer later!

We're meandering down to Buck Tavern, at Gough & Market.

Also: Danger Zone!

We made it to Buck Tavern.

Also also: the word I was searching for earlier was "decamped."

And, Weird Al's parody of "Rico Suave" was "Taco Grande."

We're calling it a night.
posted by Pronoiac at 11:38 PM on March 9, 2012

Oh man, that was totally a night!
posted by aubilenon at 12:30 AM on March 10, 2012

I think we had just about the perfect sized group for that tiny bar! Also, sarahnade gets top prize for ordering the tastiest drink. Hibiscus jelly, or whatever it was. The dead reckoning was pretty close tho.

Thanks for letting us keep you up way past bedtime on the night before your flight, hellojed! Hope you have a nice, uneventful and restful trip back home!
