Start the year RIGHT: Eat, drink & sing in 2013 !!

Hello All EDS Members ( ESPECIALLY new members !!!!!),

I hope that everyone had a wonderful holiday period wrapping up 2012 and now with the fiscal cliff out of the way, we can ALL chart our course for some fabulous singing into 2013.

A number of folks have asked about a 'regular' scheduled event such as 3rd Sunday and I think it is a great idea, HOWEVER ... my son and his wife on the east coast are expecting (as in, are committed to making me a GRANDPA) in the next few weeks, so it seems likely that I will be traveling toward the middle or end of the month. As such, I am reluctant to scheduling an event that has a high likelihood of getting cancelled.

ALTHOUGH ... a number of you have guitars, ukeleles, keyboards and piano and especially in other parts of the bay area that people have had a harder time getting into San Francisco from. Maybe someone else would like to step up and host a January Eat, Drink & Sing event ??? I would love to see others in the north, south, east bay areas share in our momentum by opening their homes to our music loving singers !!! Of course, I would be happy to share our song books with anyone that will step up and host a January event.

Meanwhile, planning for a February event, the 3rd Sunday is Presidents Day weekend, which has been a 'ski' weekend for us and likely others would have conflicting plans. And the 1st Sunday, Feb 3, is Super Bowl weekend. So how about putting a pre-Valentines Day event on the 2nd Sunday, Feb 10. I hope you will all put it on your calendars and invite your friends to join us !!!! With several weeks of advance planning I am open to offers for hosts in other parts of San Francisco, which seems to be the most central to our membership. But otherwise, I have booked the Fontana Community room which has served us so well in the past.

As usual, please bring something yummy to share and we welcome donations ($5 suggested) to cover basic expenses. Instruments and other songs (with lyrics sheets to share) are always welcome as we constantly expand our singing repertoires. Let's start this one at 2:00pm, our usual time and we will go until 5 or so.

And again, bids are out for offers for a January event. If grandparent-hood does not come calling, I will gladly be there !!!!

Looking forward to singing with you all !!!!

Bruce

    There is street parking all around ... on polk, north point & a big lot at the end of van ness. At the back of our building there are a few guest spots but they are hard to get on a Sunday. There is also a lot on Larkin 1 block away at Ghirardelli Sq. How about carpooling ?? A fun way to share your ride !

    We have had a few cancellations but hope that the rest of you all make it. Some of you may have decided not to get on the wait list but as of now, there is 1 confirmed spot !! And I expect a usual 10-20% no show rate. So I hate to tell anybody no who REALLY wants to come. Looking forward to see you on Sunday !!!!

    With a full group for Feb, I have set the location to the Fontana community room in San Francisco. We have an offer for a future EDS event hosted in Emeryville. However this space would require a $5 fee per person to cover the rental of the space. This would be in addition to the suggested $5 donation to support expenses of the group. Please let me know how many members from the east bay this would be easier for and how many it is not as convenient. It may give us an opportunity to have 2 meetups a month ! Please add your comments here or send me email if you prefer not to post here. Thanks !

    I could rent a nice space, with a piano in Emeryville, very close to the freeway... It would cost us about $5 each, but we could get any number of people in...there would not have to be a limit....
