But I'm hella lagging: I will regularly post the group's whereabouts throughout the night. Contact info was emailed to those who RSVP'd early!

Bring Stuff: Ticket (if pre-purchased), ID's, Cash Preferred for Drinks, Cold Gear (if you feel cold), laughing hat & some positive energy for sharing.

Have Fun: Laugh, dance it up if the music is rocking, socialize, drink & chill with good people!

====================================

PARKING/TRANSPORTATION

Parking: Street parking is free around the park. I would avoid parking in the parking structure right under the Academy of Sciences.

MUNI Options

The #44-O'Shaughnessy bus stops across from the Academy at the Music Concourse on Tea Garden Drive (southbound) and in front of the Academy on Music Concourse Drive (northbound).

The #5-Fulton stops at 8th Avenue and Fulton Street, just outside the park. From 8th Avenue, go into the park and turn right on John F. Kennedy Drive. Then turn left onto Music Concourse Drive.

The N-Judah Muni Metro streetcar, which is wheelchair-accessible, stops at 9th Avenue and Irving Street. To reach the Academy, travel north on 9th Avenue into Golden Gate Park.  9th Avenue becomes Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. Keep going on Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. until you reach Music Concourse Drive, then turn right and continue to the Academy entrance.

    I am going to try to get tickets at the door, but if I can't, I will be at The Little Shamrock at 807 Lincoln Way. It's only an 8 minute walk from Cal Academy. So for those that can't get in, come meet me at Shamrock at around 7:15 and then we can figure out where to go from there.
