San Francisco Meetup?

:iconnidhi-rathish:
nidhi-rathish Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2013
Ok I'm going to be honest - I have no idea how these work and I'm hoping you guys can come up with some stellar ideas (as I'm sure you will!)

I would love to have a San Francisco Deviant Meetup! I haven't been active for a while and I think meeting other artists can help rekindle my creativity. Also I am pretty bored and don't have too many friends here so I'm hoping to make lots of new ones. :D

So, anyone in the SF area want to hang?!

Hello! This event has been tentatively moved to 3PM to give enough time for people to note me in case you are attending. Please note me to confirm your attendance! :aww: Or else we can push it to next weekend so that people have enough time to plan and respond. :)

Still waiting for RSVPs! If I don't hear back today then we can push the meeting to a more agreeable time maybe tomorrow afternoon around 2-3PM? Or maybe push it to next weekend?
Let me know! :aww:

Aw man, did I miss out on this? As in did it happen this past weekend?

I live right over in Berkeley so I'd love to meet up with peeps in the Bay sometime. We'd need to coordinate dates and times and such but I'm down if we can get something together :).

I know it's not SD, but there's usually a deviant or two in LA that are up for carpooling/road-tripping up to the SF Bay for meets. $haldron is the last one I talked to about it, when I had a meet in the Berkeley area in September. He may also know deviants in SD, or know deviants who do.

Ok how about a nice brunch picnic on Sunday in one of the many parks in SF? I can bring some food and some wine :) (open to suggestions) And if you want to you can bring some food of your choice as well! It's a good opportunity to get to know everyone and I might bring along some board games as well! The other option would be to go to a gallery/museum.

Does Sunday work for everyone? If not enough people are ok with this sunday we can do it next sunday (Jan 27). Let me know guys!

Ok I was thinking weekend - Fri/Sat/Sun works well for me so either of the days is fine by me. I will figure something out with everyones availability. I will take whatever suggestions you have for those days and we can narrow it down:

So far I have:
-Meridian Art Gallery
-cafe at SFMOMA
-Cannary Building showcasing winter exhibits from AAU
-Furcon?? (I tried to find information on this but couldn't so if you guys find anything feel free to post here!)

Pl reply also about which of the days Fri/Sat/Sun works best for you!

I'd love to join in, but it would really help me out if I could carpool with folks from east bay/anywhere along 80 so as to save on time and bridge tolls. (Alternatively, there's also BART which I usually take from Berkeley to avoid dealing with parking).

Let me know if anyone is ineterested!

Hello! I will be taking the Caltrain up to the city myself so I'm sorry I can't really help you :( but I will make sure that the place where we meet up is well connected by muni etc because thats beneficial for me too!
Let me know if you had any ideas about where to meet up :) there are a few good ones in this thread already! I was thinking next Friday would be good and it would give people a chance to look at this thread and hopefully more deviants will join by then!

I'm interested, but my schedule is weird and changeable, and I don't have a car, so I need near and timely public transportation.

Hmm how about next Friday? nokari suggested AAU winter show exhibits at The Cannary building or SFMOMA. The Meridian Art gallery was another idea but I think Juturn-AL already went to that one.

I would love to hear your ideas and plan something that's convenient for everyone! I will be taking the Caltrain up myself to SF so something well connected by muni would be good for me too!

DonSimpson Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2013
Problematic. I was intending to commute from Albany to downtown San Jose for one or two days at FurCon. I'm not in the dealer room this year, and the people I usually stay with when I'm a dealer are not going this year (and possibly never again). Below is the link to the FurCon web page, and you can see what you think of it as a meetup point.

Oh ok I suppose for a first time it would not work out. I was thinking of a sunday brunch in an SF park - what do you think? Will you be able to make it this sunday or the next?

Unfortunately, no. The two Sundays after that are still open. Then it's PantheaCon, Crystal Fair, ConSonance, and FogCon.

Oh that's too bad - but do you think you could squeeze in next sunday late morning to just drop by and say hello? :) Next sunday seems to work for most people and I have enough time to plan and prepare all the food too :D

Yeah it is pretty short notice haha, but I was just throwing that out there since I was attending anyway. If there are any other cool receptions in the future just post here and hopefully more people will respond. I haven't seen much deviants from the Bay Area.
