Hi, my husband and I moved to SF from the UK 2 years ago. I am Canadian and he is English. We attended one of your events already and loved it!
Have lived in London and am married to a brit...
Nice to meet you! I was wondering if you could help me find a Canadian native for a proofreading/editing job for 10 hrs /wk Oct. 1 - Nov.1 in San Francisco, flexible schedule. I do not know where to find a Canadian native English speaker who could help us and take part in this project. Perhaps, you could help me spread the word around, or recommend some resource. Thank you!
Hi Heather! Thanks so much for setting up and running the meeting last night. I had a blast. It was great to meet you!
Hi Heather, I have stepped down as the organizer of this group as I've become too busy with my new business. Would you like to be the Organizer? if so just fill out the info on the site. If no-one steps up the site will disappear in 15 days time.
Heather! So glad to see you've joined us! I had a great time last night and am looking forward to your July meet-up. Hope you can join us on this side of the bay sometime soon! Carissa
Hi Heather, good to bump into you today at 22 eureka st, what did you think? did you see anything else today? Lokk forward to seeing you at the next month end meetup.
Thank YOU for organizing this group. I organize a biking group and it is nice to just be a member of some other groups. I look forward to meeting you!
I'd attend at Alborz, but don't change just for me. It could a future venue - I'm staying in the group. Since it is a restaurant, I think it is important that everyone order something - an appetizer, or share an entree with someone else, or a glass of wine (on which the restaurant has a decent profit margin) I went to another book group back in Feb - there were five people, and four people paired up with someone else and shared an entree. It kept the cost down and the restaurant happy.
Some restaurants where the noise level is conducive to discussion:
Malai Thai, 3189 16th St @ Guerrero
Alborz (Persian), 1245 Van Ness @ Sutter
El Zocalo (Salvadoran), 3230 Mission @ Valencia
Cafe's are harder, since they tend to be small. Quetzal, 1234 Polk Street @ Sutter is big - sometimes it is loud, sometimes it is quiet. If you talked to the managers in advance, you could probably arrange for them to keep the music on the quiet side.
I'll let you know if I think of others.
Thanks for the clarification about Sushi Rock - that some people order food and some don't. My personal feeling is that if I am taking up space in a restaurant or cafe, I need to buy something. I do understand the challenge of finding an atmosphere where discussion is possible, especially with a larger group. I was looking forward to the original venue - wasn't it a tea house kind of cafe? I'm running out of space on this post - will send you another with some venue ideas.
