JUNE 11 or JULY 11❔

The thread says Friday June 11.

I'm so proud of him for taking initiative, one of my friends, throwing a party. My heart soars.
 
2014-05-10 07:59:49 PM  
If it's July 11, I will come with my luggage. Or not. I'm scheduled for a 1:20am flight to Saigon right after the party.

You sound like somebody who has never lived in San Francisco. Or maybe you're just a moron. Either way, please stay home some people with taste & class can enjoy the party.

My very first Fark party out in public in 13 years.  My Farkiversary is 7/26 even.  I shall consume copious amounts of the booze.

I went to one at Lefty's about five years ago. No one was there. But then I think I caught Drew's eye as he was going into the bathroom.

Hm.  California Extreme is that weekend, too, which I've been meaning to go to for years.

Has Lefty's improved their air conditioning any?

I haven't been there in over a year but my guess would be no.  But it is San Francisco in July, "the coldest winter i ever spent was a summer in San Francisco" ...  attributed to Mark Twain but he never said it.
 
2014-05-11 02:05:56 AM  
I think they prefer to call it 'Frisco' up there.

if you're looking for stuff to do in SJ, I'd recommend yelp events page, there's a lot of festivals and whatnot going on. dunno what's up your alley, but I make a calendar of community events for my work...

some events in the south bay
Weekend of May 17-18
-Boogie on the Bayou -campbell (beer, wine, music, vendors)

weekend of May 31st-June 1st:
-greek fest -san jose
-bbq fest -milpitas
-cherry fest- sunnyvale

plus, May 18th is International Museum Day, thousands of museums are open for free that day. not sure which ones in sf are doing it, but that's a good day to hit up museums there, if you're into them.

If you're into wine tasting, there's a lot of wineries in the south bay, some with hiking trails, if that's your thing.

If you like Japanese Gardens, you might want to check out Hakone Gardens in Saratoga, they filmed parts of memoirs of a geisha there.

I even clicked the "I'm GOING" link up at the top of the page in the purple bar (where link voting usually is for TFers), so you KNOW I'm committed.  Click there if you're going or thinking about going.

Somehow I didn't know where this place was actually located, so I looked it up to see if there would be a problem with crowds due to a Giants game (they're at home that night against the D'Bags). Turns out there shouldn't be, since it's far from the park, and I found out that the place has an inside view available thanks to Google. Kinda cool.

Google maps has it as a 28 minute, 1.3 mile walk. Straight shot 3rd to Kearney/Geary, and a few blocks up Geary from there.

Lefty O'Doul's is kind of an older tourist "must see" when in San Francisco. That part of Union Square is still quite legit. However, just a short walk to the South is the Tenderloin district. There, you can spend all your $$$ and all the night away with many genders and races of escorts.

The next morning you can go to Honey Honey and spend $5 for a mimosa and a damn good breakfast. Although it's not Disneyland, I recommend Honey Honey.

Because I would probably go straight there from work (in San Mateo).

Looks like I'll probably be able to make this, at least for an hour or two. Spending the night in north beach, maybe I'll park there and see if i can find a bus over. Or I'll just drunkenly walk a mile back.

Sorry to whine further, but in my entire ten-day stay in SF I did not discover a single instance of the alien artifact known as a "TV guide". All six branches of Walgreens in a one-mile circle of Market St. were all 'WTF is a TV guide", the one I DID find was four weeks out of date and the one person I asked in a CVS claimed their supplier went under and they were having problems.

Couldn't get any on-screen listings in the hotel room as the "Guide" button remote pointed to just a channel list, not what was actually on. But for a major city that's actually quite shocking IMO.

sephjnr: sephjnr: I left SF on Wednesday night, Fark. One week too late.

/5300 miles is too far to cover

Sorry to whine further, but in my entire ten-day stay in SF I did not discover a single instance of the alien artifact known as a "TV guide". All six branches of Walgreens in a one-mile circle of Market St. were all 'WTF is a TV guide", the one I DID find was four weeks out of date and the one person I asked in a CVS claimed their supplier went under and they were having problems.

Couldn't get any on-screen listings in the hotel room as the "Guide" button remote pointed to just a channel list, not what was actually on. But for a major city that's actually quite shocking IMO.


This is a valid complaint, as all SF is known for is its world class television. Nothing else, at all. At all.

You should be ashamed of yourself.

We're here! In the back, along the wall! Come join the merriment and/or debauchery!
