There are many major events in SF over the year. One way to connect with the local community is to volunteer for the day of the event. Carnaval SF in May 24-25 is one. Do you want to participate as a volunteer in this or other SF events?
This group is for people who live or work in San Francisco and want to get to know other locals.
We hold LocalNight events, generally a Happy Hour at a venue with Happy Hour specials and no cover. Just come by and chat up the other locals in an informal atmosphere. After a few hours, for whoever wants to, we'll head to an after party in the area that we decide on at the moment (feel free to make suggestions).
We're kicking this off in the Mission District, and will expand to other neighborhoods shortly.
Also, have you heard of Carnaval San Francisco? It's the biggest event in the Mission, and this year will be on Saturday and Sunday May 24 and 25. I'm the volunteer coordinator, and we need about 600 volunteers. It's not hard work and should be fun. Anyway, if you're interested let me know and we can work out an appropriate role for you. Talk to me at a LocalNight event or email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
