3rd Sunday Potluck, San Francisco - 2/15/09
Posted February 9th, 2009 - 5:53 am by from San Francisco, United States (Permalink)
*Please RSVP as the location will move to Josh's place in the Mission if it rains*

If you're a San Francisco resident, or a traveler who happens to be visiting the San Francisco area, then you're invited to join us at this monthly potluck meet-up, which is taking place on Sunday, February 15th at Dolores Park! New Couchsurfers especially welcome!

We'll meet at 1 and go until the sun sets or it gets too cold, then move to Gestalt Haus, which is the location of our after-party (for those who are busy during the day with work or other obligations).

You can call our event organizer, Joshua Gaerlan, for directions.

If you're interested in carpooling, join the discussion in this thread:



Feel free to show up with a tasty dish, frosty beverage and/or a musical instrument. Frisbees, hacky sacks and any other items that encourage group physical activity are also highly recommended so we can burn off all this yummy food we'll be enjoying! If you want to double-check the list of items people are supplying or are looking for suggestions as to what to bring, then please join the discussion in this group thread:



We'll move to Gestalt Haus, a cool bar which is located near the intersection of 16th Street and Valencia. Here's the link on Yelp:


Hope you can make it!

Joshua Gaerlan, co-organizer

Jon Hikecrazy, co-organizer

I might actually be able to make this one (first time - I'm rarely up in the city), but probably not until the after party. What time is a realistic time to meet everyone at the Gestault Haus?

where in dolores park are you meeting? it's a big park usually with a lot of people so a specific spot or detail will help, otherwise i might end up crashing someone elses party on accident...

That will be determined...I have a cell phone so if you have one, call me and I'll tell you where the group is. :)

Hey, I've just arrived to SF (staying at Bush st.) and found out about this event. I'd like to come (nice we have similar events called "potlach" in our language), but it seems that I will only be able to make it for one, two hours. Could be there 6-8pm (so I'd have to go directly to the Gestalt haus?), can I join you? :) What would be the best way to get there? BART or just walk there? Seems not that far, but neither close :)

Ondrej, the weather might not cooperate, so it may move in doors. Anyway...

Hi All,

I've been keeping tabs on the weather and although today it is clear but a tad nippy, most news sources are saying there will be a 90-percent chance of rain. This is how it is going to be handled.

If tomorrow, you're already in San Francisco or you're coming to San Francisco and see it's partly cloudy and no rain (or clear), then we're sticking to the original plan.

If it is partly cloudy and raining or mostly cloudy (raining or not raining), the location is moving indoors to Mitchell Aidelbaum's loft on Harrison between 20th and 21st Streets. Give me a call and I'll tell you which loft it is. See you tomorrow! :)

Ground is wet and light rain is enough to make this move indoors. Call me (my number is on the event page) to find out which loft it is.

Can someone bring mixers such as tonic, coke, etc. if you want to drink something. I have the alcohol just not the mixers. I also need limes if you want Caipirinha's.

Hey Mitch
Thanks sooooo much for hosting a wonderful party-you were more than generous; everyone was fascinating and friendly....and the Reggaeton was great.
