European Expats Gathering

  • Mar 23, 2014 · 4:15 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. Click here for the rationale. Please come instead to the next Friends of Europe Soirée.)

BART/Muni is a short walk away and there is street parking and reasonably priced garage parking within a block. (See map)

Check in at the welcome table to receive your Friends of Europe name badge: your passport to mingling!  Happy Hour drinks and appetizers are available. There is a one drink or appetizer minimum for this event. 

The event will end around 7pm to allow people to dine together afterwards if they wish at the venue

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. No-Shows will be recorded!

    Great event as always, thanks to Geoff & Ambassador Team!!!
    Rosa Mexicano was comfortable and BAFOE members seemed to be the only ones there.
    Bar Staff was fast & friendly, seating was easy to find, for those using BART/MUNI this venue is much closer, It took me only 3 minutes from BART...easy!
    Nice that the Happy Hour menu is Daily and runs until 7pm...$6 Margaritas that are 70% tequila and 30% other limey but not too sweet stuff that use...they were delicious... $6 HH appetizers, five chooses, I had the Shredded Duck Tortilla w/ Habanero Cream Sauce...totally yummy!
    I loved it Rosa Mexicano, seemed like a good fit for BAFOE, even if only once a month.

    Group is great, it is always nice to come and meet people I can relate to. The new venue - I am not sure it is the best. I would say it is all right, but no fireworks as they say. The fact that one has to look for parking is a problem to me. And it is not validated.

    Hey soccer fans! El Classico is right BEFORE this - join us Barcelona futbol fans at the Thirsty Bear at 1:00 - 661 Howard Street. Look on Meetup for details if interested. Real Madrid Vs FC Barcelona (FC Barcelona Supporters Club of San Francisco) Look for me! It'll be crowded, so get there early.
