29 May 2007

Reminder...SF meetup on Friday, June 15th [More:]Just wanted to make sure everyone saw this. We tentatively planned on a North Beach location (Specs, I believe), but chime in if you have alternative ideas.

I'm looking forward to meeting y'all!
Be there, fuckheads.

It's true. The meetup in AZ wasn't enough--I have to go to other states to satisfy my meetup jones.

I'll be there. But... North Beach? On a friday night? Never let it be said that I'm not willing to sacrifice for you people. Is it too late to suggest Eddie Rickenbackers?

What Triode said.

Driving will be out of the question.

I concur -- if it's going to be impossible to park, can we do it somewhere else?

What is this Rickenbackers?

Eddie Rickenbackers is a pub on 2nd between mission and howard, on the edge of the financial district. Food is decent, beer selection is decent, and the drinks are strong. It is rarely loud & crowded and the people who crowd it are not the annoying type anyway; the owner is an utter bastard but I guess that adds to the charm. Plus the collection of vintage motorcycles is amazing and generally good conversation fodder. It's two long blocks from the Montgomery Muni/Bart station, and a large, reasonably priced & open-late parking lot is around the back. It's across the street from 111 Minna, if that helps. Also nearby is Zebulon - another possibility.

This Rickenbackers place sounds fine to me.

Claudia_SF made a list of other establishments in the previous thread, if anyone cares to suggest another venue.

Zebulon closes early -- I was going to suggest it earlier, but I think they shut down at 7 or 8.

I *like* North Beach on Fridays, and public transportation is why drinking was invented (wait, maybe the other way around....). So I am going to be pouty for 37 seconds about changing plans.

OK. I'm over it. I had no idea what Eddie Rickenbackers was called, but I keep walking by it and wanting to check it out, so that would be fine with me.

I have this fear that if we end up in North Beach, my participation in the meetup will be limited to yelling Hi and waving as I circle the block looking for a place to park.

I understand.

And I'm the worst kind of hypocrite on driving/parking issues, since I get the best of both worlds -- a car driven by someone else.

Sorry. I've just been wanting to yell that at someone for a while. And you so graciously opened the door.

Glad to be of service.
