Mon May 30 at 1:00 PM, San Francisco Zoo
1 Zoo Rd, San Francisco, CA, USA (Map & Directions)
Come join us for some Capybara viewing (and the other critters too) at the SF Zoo on Memorial day.
After the Capybara thread a few weeks ago ruhroh and myself have put together an SF zoo outing. If you're looking for something to do on Memorial day, come join us.

The Zoo's website is here. Tickets are $15 and the hours that day are from 10AM to 5PM.

Depending on who's interested I'll deal with logistics as the date gets closer. I'll think about a venue for booze afterward too.

Tickets are only $12 if you are a San Francisco Resident with proof of ID!

I am no longer a resident of San Francisco, but my ID says I am...

Bah. I AM a San Francisco Resident...but I have no proof.
Though theoretically I'm in.

If you decide to booze it up somewhere afterward, I may join in for a bit of that, but I really don't enjoy zoos (though I know SF's is better than a lot of them). So post it here if you decide on a post-zoo venue.

For booze I am thinking The Riptide (map) after. Once we're done with the zoo I'll post if and when we'll be there to this thread.

Poking around with google satellite - it looks like there is a lot of space to hang out around the ticket booth, so we'll meet in that general area. I'll post my cell # this weekend and feel free to call / text if you're having trouble finding us.

I also changed the time to 1pm so peeps can get lunch in beforehand and because I like to sleep in.

I'll have either a +0, +1, or +2 with me so I went with a +1.

I am bringing a posse of roommates and bf, so we will meet y'all at the ticket area at 1pm!

my cell # is 6507993210 . Look for the awkward dude with a shaved head and brown and orange adidas shoes. Probably a green backpack as well.

Maybe I'll bike there! Yay!

I shall arrive in style on Muni, which will hopefully deposit me somewhere near the ticket area. If I find myself in terra incognita I'll give MillMan a call. Looking forward to this - I've lived in San Francisco since 1988 and never been to the zoo. Also never seen a real live capybara, so this will be 2 firsts in one day!

Today's the day! So excited! I will arrive with ruhroh at 1. Can't wait to meet everyone!

If you're driving the lot is full, but you can park up on sloat ave.

I'm sitting at a table next to the gift shop just past the ticket booth.

We're moving into the zoo. So just call when you get her.
