    Taking transit would be best, but I believe that there is no parking on Mission St. just in front of the building from 4p to 6p, so perhaps you could snag something right at 6p on Mission. Otherwise, there is the Jessie Square Garage at 223 Stevenson St. just off 3rd street between Mission and Market. $10 for 3 hours.

    Hi! I have not driven around that part of soma before and was wondering what the parking situation is like in the evenings. Is there usually street parking available? Is there a parking garage nearby? Any suggestions would be much appreciated =)

    Hi Anita, we are discussing how best to do this. If we do record the presentations we will post the link in the meetup event page. Hope to see you at a future event. Cheers, M.

    What a great set of presentations and exhibits! Is there any chance the presentations will be recorded, for those of us who can't make it up to SF that night?

    Would like to go, but our East Bay Chapter of the CA Land Surveyor's Association is having their meeting that night. Anyone is welcome to attend. Our meetings are the 2nd Wed. every month, except when our CLSA Conference takes place (next year in April).

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
