Fri March 9 at 5:30 PM, Polo Grounds
747 3rd St, San Francisco, CA, USA (Map & Directions)
Join me, zerolives aka Phil, on Friday, March 9th at 5:30pm at Polo Grounds (Corner of 3rd and King) for beverages, pub food, and that witty mefi banter.
I feel like it's silly that there isn't a regular Mefi meetup in the bay area. Let's start one! I'm just gonna put up a date and location and you're gonna show up and it's going to be delightful. If this goes well we'll make it a monthly thing.

So close to my home, how could I say no?

(I might not be there at 5:30, but I'll be there)

I can walk there from my office, so sure! Likely closer to 6:00pm.

It's a few blocks from my office. I'll probably be there.

My health has been lousy this month, but I’ll drop in if I’m up for it.

Since this is around the corner from my work's new offices - which we move into on Monday, I am very excited to take the bus and not have to drive to work every day! - I will do my best to show up.

Or is it 9 lives minus 9, which seems not quite enough, somehow.

Stay safe, all, this being the internet and some being female.

This was at first a maybe for me, as I have 1.5 hours of all-occurrence sampling at the zoo to do for my primate behavior class, and this location is very downtown. But it occurred to me that this is right off the k/t and all I'd have to do to get there is hop on the L and transfer to the T, so count me in!

I got us some neon nametag dealies and sharpies if people are into that! It's happening!

I'm not sure that I have the guts/time to make it to this one, but please have my enthusiasm and future yes's. I am very glad there is a movement towards the possibility of a regular SF/bay area mefi meetup.

I haven't been to a MeFi thing in ages, and this is about two blocks from my office. I'll check with the fella!

Homo neanderthanlensis: you can also get off at Powell and take the 30 down 5th, which swings around to 3rd. It's often faster than going around the horn on the train.

Still trying to commit to this, but I doing a technical test for a job that's due around the same time, so I may be in a pit of despair. Half-kidding!

I thought I was gonna be in the city tomorrow but now I’m not so I’m a maybe-to-no now.
posted by bleep at 5:57 PM on March 8

I love transit options.

When you get there you'll be looking for the guy in the HOODSLAM shirt (me), our spot is a long table in front of a mirror (for some reason).

Sorry folks - it's been a very long week, and it turns out I can go home right! now! and I can't resist the temptation. I will do better next time.

I’m here- a little early and not sure where people are?

I’m the weirdo in blue plaid with a grey puffy vest and a blue SnapBack with gold peacock feathers on it. It’s a shiny hat.

Sorry, I won't be able to make it! Health is lousy again, and I'm all the way across the bay. I hope this becomes a regular thing, though! I met some of you at a meetup a couple years ago, and you seemed like great people!

Hey y'all! Can someone wave?
posted by mostlymartha at 5:57 PM on March 9

Update: we’re now directly to the right of the entrance! We have name tags!
posted by zerolives at 5:58 PM on March 9

Someone drink a Bacardi for me 😞

Oh my god this was so much fun! Thanks so much for coming, everyone. I’ll put the next one on the calendar!

This was so much fun. I’m basically a hermit and I think this is the latest out I’ve been in years. We Have to do this again everyone rocked. Also- neon name tags were a great idea! Thank you so much zerolives!

Sorry I didn't check in with the thread in time to drink a Bacardi!

Thanks everyone who came! Everyone else, you'll have to drink your own rum.
