    Looks like I might be the only one coming not through the carpool (taking BART in). Should I just meet everyone at Golden Gate Bakery at 10am?

      =) The dangerous fllood zone is in the Marin because they're very close to the hills & mountains & ocean & lakes & dams. SF Chinatown is in The City of San Francisco. People can take BART if you're scared to drive through the rain.

      Just made it here @ Peets

    Hi Deep. Actually, I think I will pass on this one since I would want to stay longer than just part 1 but don't want to stay till part 3(thus other carpools won't work either). Thank you for offering though!

      Fremont--Peet's Coffee. Paseo Padre Pkwy and Mowry Avenue. From 880 S, if you're coming from San Jose, take Mowry Exit, turn right. Continue to drive Along Mowry, you should pass by Fremont Blvd. After Fremont, you shall see Whole Foods on your left. Turn right on Paseo Padre Pkwy & you'll see Peet's on your left side. You can also turn right when you see Walgreens. The parking lot is big. It is close to Washington Hospital. If you drove straight and ended up at Bart Station or at Mission Blvd, then you missed your turn. It's EASY to find it. Please follow the traffic lights because our cameras here in Fremont DO work and WILL give you a ticket for NOT stopping at Yelliw Light. Very Expensive Ticket, just warning you.

      Thanks. See you tomorrow at 9am

    Hi Phoenix & Deep, I am from South bay. I think it is more convenience for me to carpool with Deep. Can I have the detail on carpool from Sunnyvale?

    February 25, 2014

    • Susanna C.

      Hi Nitin, thanks for your help. Unfortunately, this morning my boss told me that I have to work this weekend. So, I don't think I will join this event. Again, thanks for offering me a ride. Thanks, Susanna

      February 26, 2014

      No problem Susanna.

    Feeling sad, my boss told me this morning that I have to work this weekend. You guys eat more for me. Let me know if it is worthy for me to try out.

    Meeting Place: Peet's Coffee--Paseo Padre Parkway and Mowry Avenue. Landmarks that you have arrived: if you see Whole Foods, Walgreens at the intersection of Mowry Ave & Paseo Padre Pkwy. Please follow traffic lights. Our cameras here in Fremont DO work and WILL give you a ticket for NOT stopping at Yellow Light. Very Expensive Ticket, just warning you.

    I will take Dennis, Alex, Nitin, Suzanne and......Deep will be the 2nd carpool. The link that Debbie shared...might be closed so we shall be or might only Escape to Good Mong Kok and not Golden Gate Bakery. My vehicle can seat up to 6 people.

    • Alex Z

      Thanks Phoenix : )

    Hi Phoenix, if there is space I also need to carpool.

    February 24, 2014

  • Susanna C.

    Hi Phoenix, can I carpool?

    I solved the problem. Just canceled Brenda's French Soul Food. That way, everyone can come AND carpool together. I don't want the 3rd Event to hold us back from enjoying our Escape to SF.

    GGB seems to have random hours, so here's a couple of sites to double check if they're open. Comes in handy if you're travelling a long ways.

    Hey Foodies =) FYI, since we are going to San Francisco, it makes sense to start communicating with me & Deep right now, so we can plan our carpooling together. From morning to afternoon, we shall stay & escape ONLY in SF. If you signed up for Brenda's French Soul Food only, I cannot pick you up in Bay Area because I'm ALREADY in San Francisco.
