SFWT 5th Anniversary Event

The 'San Francisco World Travelers' is celebrating its 5th anniversary !

To celebrate we'll be meeting at Schroeder's Bar and Restaurant for our SFWT 5th Anniversary Event.

During the last 5 years we've had a lot of fun, shared (and planned) a lot of adventures, and just as important, made a great many new friends.

  • We now have almost 3,000 SFWT members
  • We have held 65 SFWT Events.
  • Together we've also raised more than $4,000 for for ther United Nations Foundation's 'Nothing but Nets' initiative - enough to provide more than 500 families in Africa with mosquito bed nets to help protect them from the danger that malaria poses to their lives and their livelihoods.

Thanks so much to all of you for continuing to support SFWT and our goals and objectives.


This is will be a "No show amnesty event" so if you have picked up prior 'NS's' they will be removed if you attend this event.

Schroeder's is a German Cafe with a large bar area that also serves a wide selection of food should any one choose to eat at the venue.

We recommend that you buy a drink at the bar on the way in. We do not expect to have a server for this event.

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 requested to make a minimum $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

Getting there:
Schroeder's is conveniently located between California and Sacramento St's at 240 Front St. It's also 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.


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 (3,000 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

    Well organized and a friendly crowd. It would be nice if the name tag includes a place recently visited to replace one of the two places one plans to visit on the name tag. It will better facilitate the learning part of the sharing and exchange.
