    The good news is that not only do we love the Sofitel, but they love us too! Hopefully, today was the beginning of a beautiful long term relationship with them. Watch this space for future Peninsula BAFOEs there.

    Hi! Is it possible to make a list of volunteers who can give a ride sometimes to Sofitel?

    March 10, 2014

  • Radojka

    The Hotel Sofitel is a very inviting venue. Nice surroundings, with cozy seating areas I was greeted by a pleasant doorman & served by charming Bar staff with a nice selection of cocktails, wines, beers and an impressive assortment of Bourbon/Scotch/Whiskey. They have nice Bar Snacks and even validated our parking. GREAT choice! Well done Geoff & Jackie!!!
    I had a great time :}

    The venue has asked us to limit attendance for this first trial event. If all goes well and we return, the cap will be able to be higher. Sorry, but only the first 10 or so people on waiting list will likely make it on to the YES list. You'll receive email notification when you do.

  • Zlatina

    How does it work? Just got first time notification and in waiting list already?Zlatina

  • Esfir

    Hi guys, I need ride from San Francisco, Sunset. Will share gas. Thank you.

    March 4, 2014

  • Sherry

    I would love to come, but I was put on the waitlist. Are there already that many attending for me to be on the waitlist?

    March 4, 2014

    • Radojka

      Seems that this is a smaller venue, so attendance seems to have been limited by half. I is not uncommon to have a waitlist for this group by the third day of announcing an event...that is why BAFOE is so AWESOME!!! It is one of the best Meetups in the Bay Area.

      March 4, 2014

  • Radojka

    Fun! We have new 'digs' I see, and a much smaller group, I'm so glad I RSVP'd early on this one...can hardly wait to see our new meeting place!!! Thank you to Geoff & Ambassadors for selecting a new place. See you all on Sunday!
    :]
