where shall the bloggers congregate at sbl in sf?

Texting while eatingas we have not yet decided upon a place for bloggers to congregate to imbibe quaffable adult beverages and consume artfully prepared, yet affordable kickshaws, we must decide two things:

  • when (date and time)
  • where

as for the when, please comment what day (sat, sun, mon) and time you can meet up. i’m thinking something like between 6-8pm, so those who want to stay can stick around and those who need to get off to other meetings/dining obligations can still get away. remember, we can’t accommodate everyone, but we want to do what’s best for most folks. but we need to decide on the best day.

as for the where, i’ve done a little research. all suggestions below are within walking distance of conference hotels and union square, and i tried to keep them affordable.

please let me know if any of these sound good. or, suggest your own place.

The Irish Bank

The View (in the Marriott Marquis)

The Press Club

Johnny Foley’s

First Crush

Lefty O’Douls

Library Bar

or what say you? suggestions?

bloggers, please spread the word, and have suggestions come here. then, based upon what most people want to do, we’ll meet there.

AND DON’T FORGET, there are two SBL sections that bloggers should highlight:

  3. I think Saturday night between 6 and 8 sometime would probably be best, and I vote for any Irish pub. If we could find a pub with a quiz night I think that would also be pretty fun.

  10. lol. i honestly had originally added a parenthetic about calling others on total depravity, but deleted it. i find it funny that you know even when i didn’t write something.

  11. it’s scary isn’t it…. ;-)

  12. I’d vote for Saturday, and one of the more laid-back places–don’t care which.

  17. OK, so it looks like Saturday, November 19, from 7PM to 9PM, right after the Blogger section will be the time and date.

    I’ll nail down a meeting place by tomorrow.

  19. Has a location been chosen for this august event?

  20. Have you decided on a venue yet?

  21. I’d like to suggest that we meet at one of Union Square’s best:

    Saturday, November 19, from 7PM to 9PM, right after the Blogger section will be the time and date.

    (tucked inside the Crescent Hotel)
    417 Stockton St
    (at Sutter St.)
    San Francisco, CA 94108

    should be some room to sit. not sure if there is food, but that’s ok by me (maybe not for some):


  22. Sounds great!

  23. Personally, I’m fine with a pub but preferably one with food, otherwise people will be coming late or leaving early to get dinner.

  24. It’s official. the bloggers will be meeting:

    Saturday, November 19, 2011 from 7PM to 9PM, right after the Blogger section.
