Well I'm not there yet, but 30k in the air... Pics and stories here in this thread please!
I'm staying in the Tenderloin, I'll be in Haight-Ashbury and the Golden Gate park today. My number is 331 223 5625 if anyone wants to meet up. Otherwise, see you all tonight!
BART is on strike- take MUNI (which is more convenient to the Cal Acad anyway). Looking forward to the meet and greet! Safe travels everyone!
I work at the Aquarium of the Bay - come on by today or Sunday - we're open until 8pm! Also you can sign up for a Behind the Scenes tour and see how we care for our collection. Just a shameless plug if you're looking for something to do! Otherwise I'll see you all tomorrow :)
Wasn't able to make it to the meet up tonight. :-( The person I'm staying with was a little too busy to take me out there, I guess it's sort of far away. However, I've been in San Fran since Tuesday and I did stop by the gift shop and Aquarium of the Bay, but again, I didn't have enough time to visit! It's awesome not having to pay for a hotel while I'm out here, but since my gracious host has a job and his own schedule, not everything I've wanted to do has worked out. But he has driven my boyfriend and I around to a lot of places! Saw Chinatown, Union Square, the Golden Gate Bridge, the Mission District, explored Potrero Hill (where I'm staying), and Pier 39...which BTW has a LOT of octopus items for sale in the various shops there! I got a lot more to add to my collection! Go check it out!
See everyone tomorrow morning!
Also if anyone needs a way to get around, especially with BART on strike, you can download the "Lyft" app...which is like a community taxi service. Great and reputable service...that's how I'm getting to the CAS tomorrow!
Ok! The collections tour was amazing! So glad we had a chance to do that! Tony, please thank the staff profusely for us! :)
I hope you all have a blast! Lots of pictures please!
Awaiting the start, and magically upside down due to the magic of Apple products.
I made it!! Yay!
Can I just tell you how jealous I am??? Just got back from Rochester, New York, would rather be with all of you...
Well that was fun yesterday! Good times.
One downside to helping run the event - not enough time to just talk with people between presentations and then too wiped out to hang after. Great to see everyone!
That was awesome! One more treat to go... Behind the scenes at CAS hosted by Rich. I didn't know it would be such a hassle to manage photos on the road but will post more when home. Meanwhile a few photos have been put up on Facebook. Others, please do keep posting!
Sounds like you all had a blast!
This is Erik from SF, it was great fun meeting all of you. Talks were excellent and entertaining. Thanks Tony for making it happen so enjoyably!
Congrats again Jean! Will erect a thread on that soon. Erik, was great to meet you, thanks for coming out!
Great time as always!! Awesome talks and fun times! Only about 730 more days until the next one......
Greg -- as I told you and a few other folks, your presentations get exponentially better with every TONMOCON, and the first one was awesome. Really glad we have you as part of our community.
So much fun! It was so great to finally put faces to names, and hear what people have been seeing lately!
