San Francisco pubmeet near Google I/O 5/18-5/20ish

category: general [glöplog]
Google I/O is May 18 to 20, I'll be in San Francisco from the 18th to 22nd. Looking to beer up with some SF-area demo peoples...
GD? IQ? I know you are out there! When do you have some time?
I think radman was also moving out there, or somewhere nearby..

Trace is going to Google I/O too, and we planned to meet. I think Temis could be interested too. I think Friday evening/night would be the best for me. Anybody else joining?

btw iq: are you planning to go home around end of July? I might be around since I might visit Euskal with a couple of friends.

navis, out of pure curiosity: you seem to avoid normal demoparties in favour of events with 4000 gamers and five sceners. is there a reason for that? :-)

I actually don't. I think I've been to TG twice and once at euskal. I did so for lots of different reasons and each time I enjoyed myself a lot.

This summer I want to go back to Spain or France (Main, in October) but haven't decided yet. I see it more of a vacation than a party/compo and I'd rather go somewhere warm with my friends. I think we need a break before the big party at Assembly, 2 weeks after Euskal.

We might have a demo or not ready, we're not going so much for the compo (I'm still not sure if there will be one) but for the 3 days of rest/beach/food.

In 2009 they only announced the compos 1 or 2 weeks before the party, so don't expect much this year.

Going back to the original topic...

Friday works for me. I'll see if I can chat with Temis to see if he can make it.

Hello demopeeps.
I'd be in for a meet-up as well. Unfortunately, next Friday I'm off because of a trip. Is Thursday a possibility?

On Thursday there's still a bunch of conf stuff going on, so it's a little trickier. Friday would be great.

As far as venue, how does Zeitgeist sound? It's a dive bar or beer garden. Both, I think. Recommended by my local hipster contacts. Zeitgeist Site

"The Residence" looks nice & friendly. You going to be there around 7-8, shiva?
added on the 2010-05-21 20:20:09 by andr00 andr00
so, where are you guys planning to go in the end?
added on the 2010-05-22 02:57:52 by iq iq
iq: I'll be at The Residence at 14th and Market at 20:00, so will Shiva. If you'll be there after 22:00, I'll stick around and see if you appear!

Temis is still iffy, but I told him that location. Nezbie is on his way out of town so has to pass. Not sure where Trace, Szasz, basehead, and LiraNuna are... I tried to email them, I hope they got it!

I also emailed you, but I think it was your hotmail address which is probably not checked too often.
