Anyone in the Bay area up for a mini meet (well, dinner I guess) sometime this week? Friday evening is looking open for me currently.

Well it's not really a meet. It's more a dinner engagement

I'm there, dude.

When/Where? Shall we get a hold of Zandr and invite him, too? (Haven't seen him around the BBS since October.)

Anywhere driving distance from Santa Clara. San Jose, SF, maybe not Sacramento . Somewhere with half decent food would be good (fully decent would be better). Vans would be nice but probably a bit on the pricey side for a non expensed event!

Please go ahead and give Zandr a shout, but I won't be able to confirm until tomorrow.

Damn, friday is my 21st birthday, so amazingly enough I've got other plans. Make it thursday and I'll be anywhere within two hours Berkeley. Friday and early might happen for me, but that's a long shot.

I'm there too. Howabout the Stinking Rose in North Beach, SF? It's a really cool garlic restaurant with an amazing decor. Or Michelangelo's... you get a huge bowl of gummi bears for desert.... or Kelly tells me there's an excellent Thai place in the Castro...

Depending on exactly where/when, I'm there!

Edit: I know some great places to eat in the Napa area. Anyone for Italian?

I may attend... I live in SF and can go anywhere... Stinking Rose is good, but it's a tad touristy...

Some other potential ideas: How about we go to a place like Cha Cha Cha on Haight? Or maybe Kan Zaman on Haight (mediteranean - sit on pillows kinda thing)? Or we could even go to Buca...

Or just go to Stinking Rose!

Thursday won't work unfortunately, as I'll be flying back from Seattle and meeting Toby who will have just arrived at SFO.

Toby is up for coming out on Friday - looks like this could be the end of his mysterious anonymity!

Hello? Yes? I should be able to make it. Thursday would have been out, as I'll be in Burbank for the day. I'll check with my other half and get back to you. -Zandr...still not out from under the six-week project we started in August.

The Stinking Rose is quasi touristy, but not much since it's off season. I mentioned it because it's something uniquely San Francisco... but you gotta like garlic. There's quite a few other great italian restaurants in North Beach... as you'd well guess. Buca De Beppo is good, but it's pretty crazy and loud in that place. There's lots of good stuff on Haight as Jon mentioned. I'm open to other suggestions... but lets agree fast so we can make some reservations and get a count of how many are showing.

I vote Stinking Rose. I've heard they fill up fast so we might want to make a reservation today. Who's up for it?

Me + Toby for a start..

I'm in, and I believe a few of my friends might join me. So, around what time are we shooting for?

I'll be there probably +1 of my empeg converts. Let's make it after 7... i don't get off work 'til 6 and i have to drive from San Rafael.

If anyone is coming in from afar and wants to crash on a futon mattress on my floor or on my couch, i'm down. Plus you'll get to play with the MAME cabinet and photo booth....

Yes, I'll put in a vote for sometime after 7 as well. I'm not sure where I'll be durring the day (either Hayward, Petaluma, or Napa), so it's a safe bet.

Just to let you guys know, there is a very slim chance that I might come. The only problem is, I have to be back in NY around noon time Saturday. This would mean my airfare would be around $400.

The Stinking Rose sounds good, but I don't know about $400+ good. If I can get the airfare down somehow, I may do it. I will keep you posted. Don't count me out just yet....

Loren, I will keep your offer in the back of my mind. Not having to pay for a hotel makes the trip more doable.

Work. My former (soon to be current) employer is there. I was laid-off a little over a year ago, and I start there again the middle of this month.
