Thu July 17 at 5:00 PM, SOMA Streatfood Park
428 11th Street, San Francisco, CA, USA (Map & Directions)
Spin off from this thread -- Thursday evening at the SOMA Streatfood Park. One SF MeFi anniversary event among many.
The SOMA Streatfood Park is a collection of food trucks. Beer and drinks are available, but this is not a bar. Food available varies, depending on which trucks are there, but I can pretty much guarantee something for everyone. Thursday nights they have even more going on.

I've reserved tables for us, although if we get a larger group we'll just have to colonize more of the space.

It's San Francisco in July, so be prepared for fog. I've requested tables indoors, but much of the space is outside.

Walkable or a short bus ride from either Civic Center or 16th St BART. Easy parking (really.)

How late is this expected to go? I won't be able to make it at the beginning, I think.

Good question, actually. I've just been scheduled for a Thursday shift that won't let out until 7:00, so I won't be able to make it until 7:45 or so.

THIS will be the MeFi meetup that I finally make it to.

If you are in Contra Costa County and you want a ride and you are not an axe murderer, Memail me.

This is just blocks from my house. Blocks!

Oh but it's a weekday. I'm at 50%. If I remember to work from home that day I'll be there!

Oh wait that's the other one, that's more blocks from my house. But it's still pretty close and I'll still go

I was wondering if you'd moved, but then I decided you just had as different definition of blocks than I do.

I've reserved tables for 18. The barn has unfortunately been reserved by another party, but they'll give us indoor space if it's available. It's more likely that we'll be at the outside tables, so be prepared for the weather.

The place is open until 10 pm but as always it's a little hard to predict what the group will want to do -- we can stay until then, head somewhere else, divide up into smaller groups, etc.

Looking forward to seeing you all!

Okay so all you people who said Maybe should know I'm going to bring a bunch of caramels I just made with some Welsh salt I got before bouncing on trampolines. Everything was closed after trampolines because it was sunday, so I don't also have any Welsh whisky. T_T

The caramels don't all look great, but they are freaking delicious. Adjust your plans accordingly!

Beer and caramels! Yes!

Oh hey! Caramels? Maybe I will come, too! Plus I totally want to hear about trampolines. And see all your lovely faces.

Caramels are very motivating.

Beer and caramels and Wes Burger!

Sorry to miss you guys! I'm on my way from work. There should be tables in the outside garden area for us.

Thanks for being so friendly, guys! I had fun and I'll come to another one, one of these days.

It was great to see everyone again, as usual. Hopefully I'll be able to come to another meetup soon.

Hurray, that was really fun! Special thanks to gingerbeer for organizing and picking me out of a line-up, and to aubilenon for delicious caramels that were totally not even weird looking at all.

Those caramels were criminally delicious!

That was fun! Great to see everyone and thanks for those caramels, aubilenon.

Here's the info about the history walk on Sunday, for those who were interested.
