I'm from South Bay too... near downtown San Jose.  I'm DEFINITELY interested in a meet up down here rather than in SF... is it just me that thinks travelling all the way up there is completely unmustachian?  I can't remember the last time I went further north than Mountain View :-)


I don't know, is it just me that thinks travelling all the way down there is completely unmustachian?  Why don't we all meet in the exact center of the bay?  I'll bring my floaties.

Haha, touche!  I guess what I was meaning is that we should do individual meet ups for the different areas of the Bay.  Not suggesting that you SF'ers bike all the way down here just to meet us South Bay'ers!

Definitely should diversify the meetups.  iSight attend a South Bay meetup if I have another excuse to go down there

Anyway, how about we try to meet up at the Italian Family Festa on either Sat 24th August or Sun 25th?  The festival is at Guadalupe Gardens (right alongside the Guadalupe Bike Trail; not far from Diridon Station).
Free admission. Live entertainment. Picnic style setting (byo blanket or chair).  No bottles, cans, or coolers allowed, but you can bring your own food in if you don't want to pay festival prices. 
More info here  http://www.italianfamilyfestasj.org/

Anyone interested?

Sounds like a plan to me!  Wife and I can bike over from Cupertino. To keep the ball rolling I'll propose a meetup at noon on Sat the 24th.  I'm not familiar with the park, but on Google Maps satellite view there seems to be a circular feature (fountain?) just south of Julian St.  We can try to meet up there?  I'm open to other times/places if those don't work, but I wanted to propose something that others can accept or modify.

Sounds great, see you there. Do we have any other takers??

How about a meetup for Mustachians in the south bay?  My wife and I just relocated to Cupertino from Eugene, OR and would love to meet some likeminded folks and get some tips on staying on track in such a high-cost area.  Any ideas on places/times from someone who's been here a bit longer?

Hello,

We live in Redwood City. We're a couple with a 9 month old son. Would be great to meet up.

What, no North Bay peeps?  I'm hoping to find some Mustachians to hang with in Marin, or somewhere a little north.  I'm in San Rafael, and commute into the city (it's an awesome ferry ride!), and my woman works in Napa.  Anyone close to San Rafael, or Novato/Petaluma?

Feel free to message me, or we can start a new thread, if there's anyone up here with me....

Finally did that relocation I was asking about, and relatively settled in. If we can get another South Bay meet-up, I'd be game. I'd also make the trek up to San Francisco if the logistics were right.

South Bay! I'd be in for a meet-up

Maybe after Thanksgiving and before it's the full-blown "Holiday Season", anyone else interested?

Count me in, too! I would propose next weekend, but I have family in town. The following weekend is the weekend before Xmas, may be tough for some people.

How about Saturday, January 11th? I am thinking we can meet somewhere nearby to either the Mountain View or Palo Alto caltrain stops, for maximum accessibility for South Bay mustaches.

With that in mind, any suggestions for venues? There is a nice coffee shop in downtown Mountain View called Red Rock, with ample seating. Another option might be the Mountain View library. Happy to try other places, but I'm only familiar with MtView.

I can't imagine a better place than Red Rock.  It's as discordant with Castro St as mustachianism is with the Silicon Valley.

Kudos for helping materialize this! But can we push it back just a bit to the following weekend?

Ok, let's do Saturday, January 18th at Red Rock at 2pm. Anyone know how to start a poll for RSVPs to get a feel for the group size? PM me if you plan to attend, and I will PM you back with my contact info. Cheers!

I'm game for Jan 18th at Red Rock at 2PM. I've never been before.
I'm glad somebody picked up the ball on organizing this, I dissapeared into the Thanksgiving/X-Mas travelling fun..

Maybe someone could do a Google Calendar Invite? Or something? It sounds fun though. I know my husband and I would like to meet other stachios.

I don't know my plans for that day yet but if I can make it, this sounds fun! I don't know the best way to track RSVPs... I think I've seen in other cases for other cities they started a separate thread for the event once date and time were set?

Hey team, just joined the forum (First Post!!!) and also new to the bay area. My girlfriend and I live in downtown Oakland, and I'm totally down to meet up with folks. I'm out of town this weekend but should be free to meet up next weekend.

meteor, let me know when/where you're interested in meeting up.

I'm in SF and would be open to meet-up in Berkeley.  I have a pretty flexible work schedule so I'm open anytime, however I would like to avoid rush hour on the Bay Bridge as much as possible.

Weekends are usually the best for me, as I often travel for work. What about next weekend, on Saturday, 2/22? I'm not picky where we meet; I have a bike, car, and BART card.

The 22nd sounds great.

I two suggestions walkable from BART:

We could do

-a mushtarian cafe/sandwich place like Aucoquelet maybe late morning or afternoon (2000 University Avenue http://www.aucoquelet.com/

-Or a high end cocktail bar at Revival late afternoon ( 2102 Shattuck Ave http://revivalbarandkitchen.com/)

Any preference?

Look forward to meeting everyone on Saturday.  So far here my tally of who said they are coming:


genselecus
mxt0133
f33sh

Just a reminder, there are 2 rooms in this cafe *Go to the back room*.  Look for a table with a blue bike helmet.
Time Saturday, 2/22 at 2:00. 

Nothing like numbers 2/22/2:00 at 2000 University. That is easy to remember!

Great meet-up in Berkeley today!  It was good to put a few faces to the screen names.  I didn't think we would talk about so many interesting topics that were not already covered in these forums but I was wrong.  I want to thank everyone for sharing your points of views and experiences.

Great meeting you all!  I'm still confused who is who by the user names here. I think we had a great mix of people from all different experiences and perspectives. I appreciate the SFers who made the trip across the bay.  I won't use real names here but say I'm the Berkeley resident (I think we had Oakland, China Basin, Northbeach and Inner Sunset (n judah?).

I was living out in Walnut Creek when I was in the Bay Area. It is a living anti-mustachian wall of shame. My favorite tidbit of WC insanity is that the creek from which the town gets its name has been totally paved over and now emerges into daylight at the edge of town right next to Maria Maria on Broadway. I'm glad to be out of there. Keep strong!
