Mefi post-transitpocalypse SF Meetup @ Zeitgeist
posted July 9, 2013 5:08 PM   RSS

c'mon sea legs (who started the previous thread ) encouraged me to start this thread based on the last one since they've been slacking. :) This isn't the first SF Mefi Meetup, and it won't be the last, but given that I'm a recent transplant, I'd love to try and meet some of you people (waddaya mean "you people"?) and Zeit seems like just the place to start with that! This Friday, Zeitgeist, starting 6:30pm.
Doodle has decided that Friday will be the day, and due to me leaving off the time accidentally, I'll be there starting 6:30pm; outside; weather permittings.

Since I don't actually know any of you, I'll have a florescent green t-shirt on; hopefully that will be sufficiently unique to identify me!

There's a busy agenda to be discussed, including cats-in-scanners, curated cats-in-bottes, how to make friends and influence people - while living in San Francisco, and beer pairings.

Too lazy to disable noscript so I can fiddle with the doodle, but I am perhaps maybe in depending!

I doodled. I may come. It depends on how cool you all are. I am skeptical of Zeitgeist but then I keep hearing a lot about it, so whatevs.

Eh, nothing to be skeptical about. It's a dusty beer garden and the bartenders may or may not be rude, depending on your definition of rude. Excellent beer list. Cash only, bring a hoodie or jacket!

I understand the tamales lady was recently banned from selling there since she was making tamales in her kitchen, not a commercial one.

She'll be back! She's now in the process of getting access to a commercial kitchen.

Yeah, she wasn't banned from just there and it wasn't them that determined the banning. It's a permit issue and Zeitgeist had theirs threatened if they didn't keep her out.

Yay, thanks for coordinating! I'm a slacker organizer but lovely in person :D.

Well I'm cool with home-cooked tamales and I think it's a shame that someone messed around with Zeitgeist and the tamales lady over it. But I guess the health code people are there for a reason. I hope to see the tamales return, since I like tamales.

Well, here's how you can help them return!

I have to disagree with Zeitgeist's insistence that they're the best in SF, because Biergarten exists.

Friday's the current popular day, so barring a last minute flood of people, that's when we'll do this.

Do we know what time Friday we're planning?

Would anyone be interested in this novelty-themed dinner party?
posted by Nomyte at 2:11 PM on July 12, 2013


Sure! I could do that.

If the date/time are set now, can you set this IRL post as confirmed so it shows up as an upcoming meetup?
posted by zachlipton at 2:41 PM on July 16, 2013


I may be in town by then- I'll try and find you guys if I can- contact info in profile!

I'm realizing that I have a very busy week coming up and will not be able to get into the city on a weeknight. Alas! You don't see Stalin on the menu every day.

So by Friday at 6:30 at Zeitgeist, do we mean *this* Friday (7/19)?
posted by jasper411 at 10:48 AM on July 17, 2013


So I've done my best to pencil this in, but confirming by today is unfortunately too late. I really need more time to prepare for iRL events or pen it in instead of pencil it in and risk having nothing happen.

We are a notoriously dithery lot. The best way around this is to post an IRL that you've already decided works best for you in time and place. (I have another thing that evening but I might be able to come to the meetup depending on when the other thing wraps up.)
posted by rtha at 12:33 PM on July 17, 2013


Oh- where is this place?
posted by pjern at 2:12 PM on July 17, 2013


Pjern: It's in the Mission, at 199 Valencia St. Yelp link. Accessible by bart or muni depending on where you are coming from. Hope you can make it!

I'm coming from Indiana by by Van, don't know anything about SF geography. I'll probably need some handholding... I just stopped in Cheyenne WY.

Wait. What's this?
posted by Pronoiac at 4:52 PM on July 19, 2013


Did this ever happen? It's still in "proposed." I'm so confused.
posted by radioamy at 7:59 PM on July 20, 2013


Count me in as another person who was confused. I was waiting for it to be finalized...
