iNat happy hours moving to meetup

To anyone following me who has expressed an interest in Bay Area happy hour events: we're going to start organizing them on meetup: https://www.meetup.com/iNaturalist-Happy-Hour-SF-East-Bay. I'm hoping that will make it easier to keep track of when they're happening and discuss future venues, b/c these journal posts just seem really ad hoc. I might still keep doing the journal posts, but this way there's a better, more consistent way for people I don't explicitly mention to keep track.

Anyway, next one is next Friday, 6pm at the Beer Coop in SF (as requested by @mishimatsu). Sadly, I'll be out of town, but @tiwane will be there. Other SF folks who might be interested: @joelle, @robberfly, @metsa, @ocean_beach_goth, @rebeccafay, @mrchasse.

Also, @carrieseltzer's going to start doing this in DC, so anyone in that area, check out https://www.meetup.com/iNaturalist-Happy-Hour-DC

Tucson, AZ Happy Hour on Friday 6/21 and... recommendations?

Hey Tucson, I'm going to be in your city for a conference this coming week. Anyone want to meet up for beers on Friday (6/21) evening around 6pm? I know zilch about Tucson so I'll need help choosing a venue if anyone's interested. Some place with drinks, preferably without table service, maybe food. Pueblo Vita looks cool, maybe?

Also, I think I'm free to explore Sunday and Monday, so I need day trip recommendations! I've been to Saguaro National Park (East), Madera Canyon, and Mt. Lemmon (very briefly), so I might just return to those places. I also see it's really, really hot there right now, so maybe I should shoot for higher elevations?

Let's see, who's active in Tucson: @desertharrier, @maxkewlbirder1998, @heyitshelios, @ck2az, @janeyd, @davidbygott, @entomo-logic, anyone up for a beer / have suggestions about where to get said beer? Also, @psyllidhipster, are you in Tucson now?! @treegrow, any chance you'll be in town? @micrathene & @hemispingus: I know you two are on the other side of the state, but just in case you'll be in the Tucson area... I'm sure you could also recommend a brewery you like in town.

Bay Area happy hour Friday April 26 (tomorrow)?

Ugh, again I put this on the calendar and forgot about it until the last minute. Anyone want to get together in SF? I know CNC is on and everything. Bad timing.

Bay Area Happy Hour Friday March 22: Anyone?

I put an iNat Happy Hour on the calendar for tomorrow like a month ago and totally forgot about announcing it or choosing a location. Looks like I'm the only one from the iNat team who could make it (aside from maybe @alexshepard, assuming it's in SF). Is anyone else in the SF / Oakland area interested in grabbing a drink tomorrow evening?

Open to location suggestions BART, though maybe we should keep it near BART. Here's some ideas:

Jupiter (Downtown Berkeley)
Temescal Brewing (MacArthur, Oakland)
Woods Bar (19th St. Oakland)
Kilowatt (16 St., SF, but will it be a madhouse on Friday?)

Peninsular folks (@sea-kangaroo, @gyrrlfalcon, @leslie_flint), any suggestions within walking distance of BART down your way?

Bay Area Happy Hour Friday Feb 22: Mad Oak Bar in Oakland

Alrighty, this week we'll be at Mad Oak Bar in Oakland, Friday at 6pm. This one's close to BART, so maybe it's a bit easier for some folks. Hope to see you there! https://www.eventbrite.com/e/inaturalist-happy-hour-sf-east-bay-tickets-55673312376

Bay Area Happy Hour Friday Feb 15: Sunset Reservoir Brewing Company in SF

Sorry about the late post this week, the iNat team is on retreat! We'll be having happy our at Sunset Reservoir Brewing Company in the Sunset District of San Francisco, starting at 5pm. @pleary and @carrieseltzer are visiting from the East Coast, so if you've ever wanted to meet them, now's your chance. We chose this place because it's family friendly and they serve food, so hopefully it's ok for kids and for dinner. As always, looking for someone wearing an iNat t-shirt and introduce yourself! Hope to see you there.

Happy Hour Tonight?

If anyone's reading, the iNat team is going to restart our (admittedly infrequent) Bay Area happy hours. Tonight we're going to get drinks at Little Shamrock in SF, near the Cal Academy and Golden Gate Park, 6pm. Join us! I'm hoping to start doing this weekly, alternating btwn SF and Oakland / Berkeley, so if you can't make it tonight, there will be others. I posted some details at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/inaturalist-happy-hour-sf-east-bay-tickets-55673313379. Not sold on eventbrite yet, might switch to meetup.
