Sun March 1 at 5:00 PM, Southern Pacific Brewing
620 Treat Avenue, San Francisco, CA, USA (Map & Directions)
It's decided that I'll be in San Francisco for the GDC again. It would be lovely to meet some fellow mefites in connection with this.
Thanks to popular demand we will meet on Sunday at 5 pm at Southern Pacific Brewing

I'm very excited, if for nothing else that they got Brussels sprouts with bacon on the menu...

See you all!

Space Coyote: I'll be in or around Moscone center for the most parts.

It may be tough to find a good spot for drinking in groups within a few blocks of moscone-Union square because of all the GDC parties going on. Going further afield though shouldn't be a problem

I'm open for almost anything.

Aubilenon - do you have a suggestion of a venue?
posted by Rabarberofficer at 7:24 AM on February 23, 2015

There's a couple less-well-known but great bars in the area around moscone, or in SoMa or the Mission. Is there a kid/family-friendly requirement?
posted by phildini at 3:24 PM on February 23, 2015

I don't think we have be kids-friendly. But I don't know what other attendees have in mind, Phildini. I would give you free hands to decide a place. And even what day would be best.

Does anybody else want to weight in on venue and day?

Has anyone else been to Southern Pacific Brewing? I think it would handle a decent-sized meetup without a problem. It's in the Mission, not near Moscone.

As for when, I like Sunday.

Hey all. I just moved to SF from NYC, and would love to meet some bay area mefites. Sunday should be easy for me to join. Hope to see you all there!

Sunday works for me, I think. I haven't been to Southern Pacific but I am in favor since it's in my neighborhood and I am lazy. And I've heard fine things about it. And it's a short walk from 16th St BART.

Mikkeller is pretty close to Moscone (basically, just across Market into the Tenderloin) and it is pretty large and has a mega-beer selection. I've gone there twice and it hasn't been crowded, but that was a while ago. Anyone else been there recently?

Ok. Sunday 1 March seems to work for most people.

Place: southern pacific Brewing.

Time: From 5pm - would that work?

I will put this event up on IRL as a decided event tomorrow morning.

See you all soon!

Yup, earlier works better - it's a school night, and we can sit outside.

If you post it tonight, notifications can go out tonight.

yay! that sounds like itll work!

Not really a fan of going to the Mission. I'd rather go somewhere in the Haight or Sunset.
posted by mike3k at 8:01 AM on February 27, 2015

damn, can no longer make it on Sunday. I'll have to set up my own just-moved-to-the-Bay meetup sometime soon. Enjoy, y'all.

gingerbeer and I are in and the venue is fine by us!

Looks as if we are on! See you all later guys!

Question though: How do we recognize each other? I'm sure there is Mefite protocol in place, but I don't know it.
posted by Rabarberofficer at 8:28 AM on March 1, 2015

I live right there and am interested in coming if space isn't an issue!

Yay! We will try and be there before 5 and reserve a table!

Yaymukund - happy you can make it!

Counting on seeing you too Pronoiac and wonton endangerment!

posted by Rabarberofficer at 1:05 PM on March 1, 2015

Yaymukind, it's a pretty big place. Please come.

I'd say, when you get a table, mention where it is in the thread.

(I might go print a sign.)

I'll be a bit late— 5:30-5:45pm!

I'm working my way there, assuming the next muni driver doesn't ignore me.

Oh no, that sucks!! I'm sorry you couldn't get in, wonton endangerment.

It was lovely seeing some of you after 2+ years, and meeting some of you just now ❤
