European Expats Gathering

  • Aug 4, 2013 · 4:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Socialize with fellow Europeans in a stylish lounge bar. This event is specially for European expatriates and BAFOE regulars. If you are from Europe and want to make interesting new friends, have substantial conversations, compare notes on life in America, practice your language skills or just have fun, come join us! Drop in when you can and stay for as long as you want. Newcomers are especially welcome. You'll discover a friendly group.

Our definitions: You're a European expat if you were born and/or raised in or near Europe, or in a former European territory; and a BAFOE regular if you attend events on a regular basis and have already been to at least three other BAFOE events. Sorry, but if you don't qualify you will be removed from the RSVP list. Read the rationale here. Please come instead to the next Friends of Europe Soirée.

Check in at the welcome table to receive your Friends of Europe name badge: your passport to mingling! Happy Hour drinks and half-price appetizers are available. The event will end around 7pm to allow people to dine together afterwards if they wish at the venue or nearby restaurants. There is free validated parking in the adjoining Hills Plaza parking garage (entrance on Folsom between Embarcadero and Spear).

There is a limit on the number of people the venue can accommodate. Please RSVP YES only if you are fairly confident that you - and your guest if you are bringing one - will be able to attend. Events are always full, so if your plans change or your guest cannot come please update your RSVP so that someone else can come instead. Read our No-Show Policy here.

    One of the biggest and best meetup groups I attend. Always meeting new and old friends. Geoff should be made king of Meetup.com.

    I agree. Checking reduces uncertainty and ultimately raises expectations of a good meet. This one was the best in a while, I thought. Wll done Geoff and Co.

    Yes, I agree with Dr. Eric and am glad that attendance is being checked. This is a stellar Meetup (one of, if not the best in San Francisco!) there is ALWAYS a wait list. If a member RSVP's Yes and is a no show, this limits others who want to come. We are so very fortunate to have a Meetup group of this caliber. It is not asking much to be mindful of our RSVP's.
    I know this is puts additional work on our organizers. I would be happy to volunteer to help with 'Check-in' whenever needed :)
    Thanks again Geoff & all Organizers who have helped :)

    It was an excellent little gathering - the Palimino, Geoff and all the other hosts did a great job. Hanging out with some people I already know and meeting others was fun and very worthwhile

    Excellent as always, thank you Geoff!!!

    good turnout. good energy. good host.
    I would remove the tables.
    it impossible to move around with the tables in the middle.
    May be the best thing to do is to arrive at 7 when half the
    people are gone and be able to hear each other.
