    Default San Francisco Meet-Up

    A couple of members are going to San Francisco the weekend of Sept 7 & 8 for Metallica's S&M2 show(s).

    RF mentioned that he might be able to meet.

    Anyone else going to be there for a meet-up?

    Far from having a spot at the cool kids table but will be in SF on the 7th. So it would depend on time and place. Would love to meet some of you.

    So far there is no time or place.

    I am arriving mid-day on the 7th. I'd say that anytime after 4pm anywhere in downtown SF would work for me. Around 7pm would be best. Some Anchor Steam and local seafood would be perfect. Maybe somewhere at the wharf?

    Cool. Let's see if there is more interest in here and go from there.

    I like that one too. They have a craft brewery.

    It looks nice but not stuffy.

    Where are you staying? My wife and I are going to be at the Hotel Zoe in the Wharf area from Friday-Monday.

    Saturday is completely booked right now. We are driving to Napa for the day, and then going to Sausalito for dinner. If timing works out, I want to go to Lucky Strike bowling alley for an Enter Night Party. Stone is one of my favorite breweries, so this could be a fun pre-party.

    Sunday morning we are going to Alcatraz, and then getting lunch at Slanted Door. So we would have from then until concert time open.

    We're staying at the Hilton in Union Square.

    I should be available Sunday afternoon.

    If Kingfan2323 won't be there Sunday, I don't mind meeting up twice.

    I can do Saturday afternoon at the restaurant we talked about. 1 or 2 pm works best.
    Sunday is NFL kickoff, so I'll be busy.

    I get in to SFO just before 2pm. My nephew will get there just before me. We aren't checking bags, so it's just the time to get from the airport to downtown.

    I'd say that 3pm is the earliest I can be there.

    If you are taking Bart you go from SFO (Antioch bound train) to Powell Street, then walk to your hotel. The Bart cost is $9.65 one-way. Trains run every 20 minutes on the 7's (2:07, 2:27, 2:47 etc.) Trip time is 29 minutes.
    If renting a car it will likely take 90 minutes to obtain your car and get to your hotel, park and check in.

    I think I'll take the BART to Powell Street and back to the airport. I'll take the muni train from Powell to the venue and back.

    Advice: Buy a $19.30 BART ticket for each person (round trip price) when you go to the SFO station. That way you don't have to screw around buying a ticket when returning to the airport for the trip home. Saves a couple of minutes time when you may be in a hurry to catch your flight home (which will be delayed because of runway repairs )

    Public Service Announcement:


    Car break-ins are at epidemic proportions in San Francisco (30,000 in 2017!). Thieves target most any car, but particularly focus on rental cars. Do not leave anything in your car, not a charging cord, not a shirt, nothing! Don't think if it's in the trunk it is safe. Thieves break your window, then pop your trunk. IF you are using a rental car (versus Uber or Lyft), go directly from the airport to your hotel and check everything into your room.
    When going out (sans car), take only what you need for that particular trip. If you are using a rental car, once again, leave absolutely nothing in the car or its trunk.

    Be aware that SFO is doing repairs to one of its two main runways during September. Expect delays.

    Thats the latest thing causing some headaches on the Metallica forums. Luckily my flight out of SFO is at 6:15am, so there shouldnt be any delays at that hour.

    FYI, there is very little parking on site (less than 2K spaces-all likely reserved already) I looked and all parking garages within 1.5 miles are already booked. One can ride Muni (free the day of the event with concert ticket in hand-except for Cable Cars) to and from the event, but it's a bit of a challenge, particularly when leaving as of the 18,000 people attending, many will want to board the muni trains that seat 700 each. It could take over an hour to move 7,000 people.

    Another option is to UBER/LYFT in, but there will be waits when 1,000`s of people want a ride when the concert lets out.

    Toronado is old school Haight Ashbury funk, with an amazing eclectic beer selection. Several blocks up the Haight is Magnolia
