San Francisco's next social event for techies and their friends,
sig-beer-west, will take place at 6:00pm on Saturday, May 15, 2004 at
21st Amendment Brew Pub in San Francisco, CA.
21st Amendment's selection of beer includes their own delightful
brews, and a fair selection of guest brews. They have a full food
menu and I can personally recommend the sweet potato straws and the
grilled Monterey Bay squid. Festivities will start at 6:00pm and
continue until we've all left.
Directions to 21st Amendment can be found on their directions page.
They're about a fifteen minute walk down 2nd St. from the Montgomery
When you show up, you should look for some kind of home made
sig-beer-west sign. We will try to make it obvious who we are. :-)
Note: Please look for the sig-beer-west sign, not for a particular
person. sig-beer-west may have different hosts from month to month.
Everyone is welcome at this event. We mean it! Please feel free to
forward this information and to invite friends, co-workers, and others
(all of legal drinking age) who might enjoy lifting a glass with
interesting folks from all over the place.
Can't come this month? Mark your calendar for next month. (Do it now
before you forget!) sig-beer-west occurs on the third Saturday of the
Any questions, comments, suggestions of things to do later on that
evening, or new venue suggestions ... email the current sig-beer-west
Instigator. The Instigator's Username is extasia. The Instigator's

1. Q: Your announcement says "techies and their friends". How do I
know if I'm a techie, or a friend of one?
A: Well, actually, you don't have to be a techie to attend. You
just have to be able to find the sig-beer-west sign at this month's
event. That's it. Simple, huh?
2. Q: I'm not really a beer person. In fact I'm interested in
hanging out, but not in drinking. Would I be welcome?
A: Absolutely! The point is to hang out with fun, interesting folks.
Please do join us.
3. Q: Is parking difficult in the city, like maybe I should factor
this into my travel time?
Note for May 2004: 21st Amendment is a fifteen minute walk from
Montgomery BART. You may want to consider BARTing and not worrying
at all about parking.
sig-beer-west was started in February 2002 when a couple Washington,
D.C. based systems administrators who moved to the San Francisco Bay
area wanted to continue a dc-sage tradition, sig-beer, which is
described in dc-sage web space as:
SIG-beer, as in "Special Interest Group - Beer" ala ACM, or as in
"send the BEER signal to that process".
The original SIG-beer gathering takes place in Washington DC,
usually on the first Saturday night of the month.
