San Fran FLWBC Conference Attendees

Post by SREcklund »

I asked the same question over in the Facebook Wright Attitude group, but we have some different people here, so I'll ask again - who's attending the conference, and which portions? And who knows a good local meet-up joint (*cough* SDR *cough*)?

I'm flying in on Monday night, overnighting in Richmond before road-tripping Tuesday to Redding for Pilgrim Church, then back to SF for the full Wed thru Sun of conference and tours.

And you?

Not attending, but if anyone cares to make a separate visit to Los Banos, I would be happy to open some wine and give a little tour of the house.

Christine and I will be attending the conference and the Sunday post-conference tour.
KevinW: Unfortunately, our schedule (and my available time off) will not allow an excursion out to Los Banos, maybe another time?

Hi Stan and all Wright Chat community members,

My wife Trisha and I shall be attending everything, and I am looking forward to meeting many whom I have heretofore known for the most part only behind familiar screen names . . .

I have put Stan's query to a family member much more familiar than I with the current San Francisco scene around the Upper Grant Avenue, North Beach, Broadway, and Chinatown areas that are within walking distance of the Hilton San Francisco Financial District Hotel and will pass along any suggestions for your consideration. Maybe other pub crawlers amongst the members of this forum will have recommendations, though.

Thanks, Bill - and may we all thank you in advance for all the work you and Chuck have done to insure this will be an amazing conference!

Being only a block or so away from the hotel, I suspect we'll be wearing a groove in the sidewalk between the two ... :D

Fortunately (or not), I'm driving up from LA - lots of trunkspace for heavy books ... :-o
