San Francisco Happy Hour / Meet and Greet

Many of us made great connections at the last happy hour in June and this will be another opportunity to meet and greet now before the summer season comes to a close!

This will be the perfect time to find new backpacking buddies and make plans for upcoming trips.

Azucar Lounge worked perfectly to accommodate our large group for the last meetup.

    Hey all, I have posted what will probably be the last Happy Hour of the season on September 18th.

    http://www.meetup.com/the-other-original-bay-area-backpack-meetup/events/138495012/

    We are trying a different venue this time due to the feedback of members.

    May not be able to make Happy Hour, but would like to propose a good spot for another, in Marin: http://www.presidioyachtclub.org/
    The place holds many, is fun & funky and easy from SF. Good for us Marin-ites.
    Cheers!

    Ugh! Work is making me stay late to cover for an absent coworker. If I can get outa here soon I'll still come up but I'm not 100% sure when I'll be out of here.

  • Kiely

    Not going to make it to this happy hour after all. Next time!

  • Scott

    Unfortuantely I will not be able to make this now. Was hoping to meet some of the group, guess I will ahve to wait for the next happy hour.

    August 8, 2013

  • Holly W.

    Wow! 55 is a lot of people. Will the Azucar Lounge be able to accommodate everyone?

    August 8, 2013

    • Clint

      Good question! 72 had RSVP'd last time and Azucar was able to handle our group pretty well.

    My first meet-up and hike was a little over a week ago. The hike and people were great! I look forward to meeting more friendly kindred hikers.

    I don't know if any other place would be better, but after the place filled up i about lost my voice just trying to chat with the person 1 foot away from me..... the outside of Thee Parkside, Zeitgeist, StrEAT Food Park, Folsom st. Foundry?

  • Jackie S.

    Sounds like a good idea! Count me in!

    August 2, 2013

  • Holly W.

    It'll be nice to meet some people in the group before committing to any trips.

    Hey Clint, I organized the last one and dealt with the manager at Azucar, let me know if you want to co-organize. I would give them a call to make sure there are no conflicting large parties for that date. I called them to make sure of that before choosing the day. Wednesdays are less busy for them than Thursdays.

    July 23, 2013

    • Clint

      Manuel - were you able to reach them? If not, let me know and I'll contact them. Thanks!

      July 25, 2013

    • Manuel

      I am traveling so I was not able to contact them but it looks like you have it all figured out, thanks for organizing!

      July 26, 2013

  • Carole-Anne

    yay! new backpacking friends!

    July 26, 2013

  • Scott

    sounds great - looking forward to meeting everyone.
