I have tickets for the concert at 8pm on Friday, but my friend can't attend that time. Looking to trade for tickets for the 7pm Sunday concert.

Hotel and Facilities / Re: Corner of Market and San Carlos St.
« on: May 31, 2017, 11:56:31 AM »
Maybe just have about 20-25 seconds of pedestrian scramble during events, a lot of it probably has to do with so many people wanting to cross diagonally and using the two other corners, adding to traffic there.

Fanime, Comic-con, WWDC? events, maybe I'll ask to see if someone can bring it up with the mayor.

Hotel and Facilities / New Hotel Opening This Weekend
« on: May 26, 2017, 12:48:01 PM »
Hope this doesn't come off as spammy, but if you're looking to book a hotel room the last minute there is a new hotel that is just having their grand opening.
Hotel Clariana on the corner of 3rd St and Santa Clara in downtown is finally open. If you're still looking for a hotel downtown that could be an option. It is a walk though, as opposed to a hotel like the Marriot or Fairmont that are right by the convention center.

I haven't stayed there or heard anything about it since it is brand new as a hotel (the building was an office building in its past life). If anyone does stay there do let me know how it is.

Okay, everyone, let's settle for SoFA Market place @5pm Sunday, we can linger until 5:10pm and move to another location if the place is not to our liking. Any place in SoFA district is no more than a 5 min walk to other parts of SoFA (like South First Billiards, Cafe Stritch, Continental Bar). Let's meet at the back, closer to the Fountain Head bar.

I'm at a table in the back near the bar, wearing a black sweater and a fanime badge. I'm a tall guy, 33, dark hair, some stubble.

I tried looking online for Saturday's schedule, but I could find nothing about when the Musicfest is going to happen, so until I pick up the schedule tonight I won't know anything, there isn't a schedule posted online. So I'm just going to say we are NOT doing Saturday, since I too want to go to the concert, but I don't know when it will end.

Friday is probably less convenient for people than Sunday, so how about Sunday at around 5pm, at SoFA market.

Can I get a Yes or No on this from people?

Thanks.

SoFA market is basically SoFA's answer to San Pedro Square Market, it is heading to be a mini SPSM , but yeah only a few places open, but yeah sounds like people prefer to be close to the con, SoFA district is pretty close.

If people don't like the choices at SoFA market you could bring to go food. It does have the downside that part of it is under construction. Are people looking at Saturday, Sunday or Friday.

Anyone familiar with the area want to make an executive decision and pick a place? :)

An area that is nice, close to the Con, and has actually improved a lot the last few years is South First Area. Basically walk across Market Street, turn right at First St, and you're there.

If you're looking for something even low key the new SoFA market will work, it is kind of like San Pedro Sq Mrkt, but still under construction though, (if you don't know what San Pedro Sq Mrkt is I can suggest a ton of places in DTSJ much better than or cheaper than the stuff at the hotels or Johnny Rockets), anyway currently has a bar, a coffee shop, and a burger place inside. Across the street is Cafe Stritch, it has somewhat more of a bar atmosphere. The best bar in the area (and probably for the next 40 miles) would be Singlebarrel, but they have strict control on how many people to let in.

Saturday is more crowded than Friday for obvious reasons. For bars I would recommend Singlebarrel or the Continental.

So I'm going to ask what people want now, and just going to have to make an executive decision by Tuesday, just because it seems like I'm the only local here.

I would love a get together, and I actually think the other bars like Singlebarrel, Paper Plane, the Continental, are nicer than Tanq, but I'm a DTSJ local, so I'm comfortable going away from the hotels area , whereas I can see out of towners preferring the hotels, so I won't press, but the Continental, and Singlebarrel are near  Famine. Let me know if you decide on anything, could just make a reservation at Mezcal or something.
