About Telegraph Beer Garden
Telegraph is a restaurant/bar with both indoor and outdoor seating. They're six blocks from the closest 19th Street BART entrance, and have lots of bike parking. Once you've got your map-project and map-friends gathered, feel free to sit anywhere else at Telegraph, such as their sheltered and partially heated patio!
Do they have food? Yes! Burgers, sandwiches, and sausages, with tasty veg options, too. Menu here.
Do they have Wifi? Yes! At last check it was "[masked]" (the bar's phone number). If it's changed, the friendly bartenders will happily provide the new one.
Maptime is, rather literally, time for mapmaking. Our mission is to open the doors of cartographic possibility to anyone interested by creating a time and space for collaborative learning, exploration, and map creation using mapping tools and technologies.
This open learning environment for all levels and degrees of knowledge offers intentional support for the beginner. Maptime is simultaneously flexible and structured, creating space for workshops and for independent/collaborative work time.
Inspiration for Maptime comes from both hack nights and knitting circles. Both are models of spaces for people to create and learn together. Our goal is to provide this space with an open heart and without pretension. You can bring your own projects to work on, or just hang out and socialize or ask questions. Some people are experts, and some people are just getting started, but all of us are learning, so why not do it together?
