We'll be meeting again for our SFWT July Event at The Elephant and Castle. The Elephant and Castle (E&C) has a large downstairs private room (The Lombard Room) where us 'leisure refugees' will get together. When you come in the door just let the venue greeter know that you are with our group, and head straight down the main bar before taking the stairs on the right hand side down to The Lombard Room -where you'll find us loitering with intent and grinning inanely! E&C also serves food upstairs should any one choose to eat at the venue but please note we don't have dinner as a group - we do the the whole 'mingle mingle' thing over a few drinks. SFWT supports The United Nation's Foundations "Nothing but Nets' initiative to provide mosquito bed nets to families in Africa. As such all attendees are asked to make a $1.00 donation to this important and valuable cause (of course if you'd like to give more you are welcome to do so). Donations are not used to cover meet up fees or expenses and are contributed 100% to Nothing but Nets. For more information go to www.nothingbutnets.net Getting there: E&C is conveniently located opposite the Embarcadero Center (Building 1) on the north-west corner of Battery and Clay. Transportation Just a couple of blocks from the Embarcadero BART and MUNI station and 5 minutes walk from the Ferry Building on the Embarcadero. There are ample options for parking close by either on the street or at nearby garages (such as 250 Clay St or the Embarcadero Center). Apart from that all you need is yourself and your 'friendly' hat and you're all ready to go! ------------------------ RSVP Policy SFWT offers a social setting for traveler's in the Bay Area community to meet their fellow travelers at no cost to themselves. In doing so we ask our members to be considerate in RSVP'ing for events. Due to limitations imposed by venue size we have to restrict the number of attendees for each event. As our community of SFWT members is large (exceeding 1,400 members) events sometimes fill up quickly and on occasions a 'waiting list' may come into effect. SFWT members are reminded to please change their RSVP if their plans change to free up space for others who might otherwise be stranded on the 'waiting list' on the day of the event.
