San  Francisco's  next  social  event for computer sysadmins and their
friends,  sig-beer-west, will take place on Saturday, June 21, 2003 at
the  [1]Toronado  in San Francisco, CA. The Toronado has an impressive
selection of [2]draught and [3]bottled beer. Festivities will start at
6:00pm  and  continue  until  we've  all  left.  The  Toronado  has an
excellent  selection  of  beer,  but  no food. It is perfectly okay to
score  food  from  neighboring establishments and bring it back to the
Toronado to eat. Also, after we are all full with beer we may roam off
to a nearby restaurant.


Everyone  is  welcome  at  this event. We mean it! Please feel free to
forward this information and to invite friends, co-workers, and others
who  might  enjoy lifting a glass with interesting folks from all over
the place. (O.K., you do have to be of legal drinking age to attend.)

For directions to the Toronado, please use the [4]excellent directions
at  their  website.  When you show up at the Toronado, you should look
for  some  kind  of botched sig-beer-west sign. We will try to make it
obvious who we are. :-)


Note:  Check the tables in the back room for us if you don't see us at
the tables by the bar. The back room is back and to the left.

sig-beer-west FAQ

1.   Q: Your announcement says "computer sysadmins and their
        friends".  How  do  I  know  if I'm a friend of a computer
        sysadmin? I don't even know what one is.

     A: You're  a  friend  of  a  computer sysadmin if you can find
        the sig-beer-west sign at this month's sig-beer-west event.

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 around the Toronado, like maybe I should
        factor this into my travel time?

     A: Yes.

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 [7]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.
