Sensationnel, la quinze ans de MetaFilter! Rejoignez-nous pour La Course de Garcons & Filles de Cafe!
"On July 14th 2014 the French will take over Daley Plaza, in a celebration organized by volunteers belonging to many organizations under the umbrella of the French Consulate. Le clou du spectacle, the show stopper? It will be la Course de Garçons &; Filles de Café, bien sûr! This is when waiters or wannabe waiters compete in a 200 meters sprint that involves running as fast as you can while balancing a tray full of (plastic) glasses — without spilling a drop of grand cru."

I promised hapax_legomenon and rtha I'd post another French meetup... How does Tuesday the 30th work? Thoughts on venue? (Ideally BART-accessible, French theme not required. Actually, it occurs to me that les Belges parlent franais aussi...)
Bonjour! Time for our third meetup. I'll propose next Tuesday, 10/12 6:30ish but we need a venue. I think we decided last time that conversing within a French ambiance is not mandatory, although a much cheaper food/drink option is. People, throw out your suggestions. [more inside]
Our inaugural rendezvous this past Monday night was un grande succ0232;s so we've decided to continue on a bi-weekly basis. Monday and Tuesday nights seem to be best (for now). We need a better venue than Caf0233; de la Presse so please suggest some better and BART-friendly alternatives! I propose Monday 9/27 as our next date. Thoughts?
I'd like to have somewhat regularly scheduled French conversation meetups. Anyone else in the Bay Area interested? If so, please throw out some good meeting times/ideal frequency/locations. [more inside]
