Arrow San Francisco MEGA DO 2008 - September 26-28

Howdy Folks!

As promised the San Francisco Mega Do is back, and we're hoping to top last year. Given that the Do calendar is already pretty full we decided we needed to get the date out there soon, and chose September 26-28 as the weekend for this year.

For those that didn't make it last year, we had a great set of activities from dinners at two great restaurants, to yachting, to aerial tours of the bay area, to a California Redwood deck party, to Dim Sum, to a tour of the United Maintenance Facility at SFO (pictures from last year). While we can't promise all of those activities again, we sure as heck will try our best!

We hope to see familiar faces and hopefully some first timers!

Your hosts,
lucky9876coins and Wireless

Friday, September 26:
  • Tour of the Gate Gourmet facilities at SFO at 2PM. For information on how to get to the Gate Gourmet facilities, please see this post. We will also be meeting at 12:30PM in the north international terminal food court (landside) for lunch, for those that might be interested.
  • Head to hotels and maybe have pre-dinner drinks somewhere
  • InterContinental minibar party and/or bar crawl after dinner (for those interested)

Saturday, September 27:
  • kalkat has once again graciously offered to host a deck party at her house. This is an amazing event, trust me! We'll be getting to Larkspur using the Golden Gate Ferry, departing from the SF Ferry Building at 12:40PM, getting into Larkspur at 1:30PM, and returning on the 5:30PM ferry, getting into the Ferry Building at 7PM, just in time for dinner. As soon as registration opens, this event will be available on a first come first serve basis to those that are confirmed.
  • Benny8444 is hosting a college football party at 11AM at Zeke's Sports Bar and Grill. For more information and to register see this thread.
  • Dinner at Restaurant LuLu at 7:30PM in the Bis Room (no, that doesn't stand for Butt-in-seat, sorry). The cost is $68.
  • InterContinental minibar party and/or bar crawl after dinner (for those interested)

Sunday, September 28:
  • Dim Sum at Yank Sing on Stevenson Streen at 10AM. If you're interested just show up, we're not taking counts on this event.
