Date: Friday, September 11, 2015
Where: Pizza Inferno Ale House 1800 Fillmore (corner of Sutter)
Time: 6:30pm
Directions
Very easy to get to via MUNI and BART

38 Geary* (which runs on Market St for those taking BART [Montgomery BART] to Fillmore (or if coming from other parts of the city, any bus which conx to the 38) and walk 2 blocks up Fillmore or park in the Japan Town Garage (enter on Fillmore) and walk 1 block up Fillmore

Parking rates at the Japan Town garage (note the photo is about a year old but iirc, the rates are still the same)

*Travel time from Mkt st is about 20/25 minutes or the 38L (limited) which makes fewer stops

I will also offer rides back down to BART tho I might have to do a few trips for anyone interested and please bring cash as one or two lucky folks will be "the winners" for credit card miles

Please post if you are planning to attend as soon as possible as I need to update the restaurant with a head count by Thursday

There will be a "Changes We Like" Meme contest, featuring the recently departed CEO/President/Chairman of the Board/Director. You can prepare one in advance using any head shot (there are plenty) or can create one at the restaurant!

There will be a nice prize for the top meme (as voted by those in attendance).

Pat

Darn I would love to join you all. I'll join you for a virtual drink instead. It's just a few days past 3.5 years since CO pushed out UA.

Hello Lisa. Send my best to my Brooklyn buddy.

Honestly I hate to gloat, but I think Jeff Smisek is finally good for something - inspiring a very good party on Friday!

I look forward to seeing you all!
Dan, it's not too late.

I'm tentative on attending. First time I've seen a FT meet in SF! I'm a fairly new and young flyer(3 years of flying)! However, I'm mostly there to meet everyone from SF than to celebrate J. Smisek's departure =/

Is that okay?!

Can't make it either due to travel -- don't get into SFO until after 11PM (assuming on time arrival ) and will be on East Coast body time.

Of course it's ok ^ and Flyertalkers are always a fun bunch (tho I'm biased to the SFO group ). The only requirement (other than paying of course ) is that you raise a glass (alcoholic or non-alcoholic) in a farewell toast to Jeff
