This event is organized by our friends at the Green Tortoise Hostel in SF in order to provide a fun, safe space for solo female travelers to connect with one another. There are usually 25-40 solo female travelers staying at the hostel that attend each week who don't RSVP on meetup - so there's always a diverse group of people to meet. We have copied all the info below so be sure to READ EVERYTHING and follow the RSVP instructions if you're planning to attend.
Info from Green Tortoise website:
Mix and Mingle with other international female travelers & au pairs. Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday we have a free, vegetarian group dinner for all hostel guests. We have temporarily decided to open this event up on Friday nights to all international female travelers in SF in an effort to connect solo female travelers with one another. Join us in our safe, fun international living room space where you are welcome to bring your own drinks. Enjoy a home-cooked vegetarian meal in our San Francisco hostel where you can connect with like-minded, international female travelers & au pairs.
Afterwards, join a wide range of other international travelers as everyone from the hostel heads out with locals and travelers from around the city at 9PM to compete for their country at the SF Beer/Wine/Spirit Olympics. At 8:55PM, we will organize teams OUT FRONT of the hostel before heading out to the bar where this week's Beer/Wine/Spirit Olympics takes place.
