Any thoughts on how late this thing will run? I have an after-work engagement, but I would like to have a chance to laugh at Jeff Francoeur with kindred spirits if this thing is going to last into the evening.

I wish I knew the playoff schedule. If there’s baseball on, we’ll still be there. I’ll update on twitter, and try to update here too.
I’ll try to make it. As Ree said, thanks for making it a non 21+ venue.

I work in SOMA, so I’ll try to make it. But, like JayT, I will be at the A’s game if it’s a home game.
Honestly, Oakland will be playing most likely, and I’m not sure I should be watching that particular game in front of people I’ve just met. I may be at my highest high, my lowest low, my loudest loud, my silentest silent, with crazy mood swings throughout the game. 162 games leading to one all-important game. I’m freaking out just thinking about it!

To each his own, but if there was a crowd that would understand your mood swings, I’d venture it was this one.
Like others here, I look forward to nerding it up – with great beer, to boot! – but plan on being in Oaktown if there’s a game. If there’s an out of town game, though, featuring Oakland, you gotta get the 21st to put it on the tele – even though they’re Giants homers (as is their right, being by AT&T park).

certainly hope to make it. but either way thanks for putting something together in the bay area.
I’ve lived in SF for 9 years and I consider it downtown, the same way that people would say the ballpark is downtown and north beach is downtown. Milby and fergie seem to think downtown equals financial district, but not everybody would agree with that.
This reminds me of a time when Bill O’Reilly was discussing drugs in SF. He mentioned that every major city has a tenderloin district where people smoke weed on the street, prostitutes are around, etc, and in SF it’s called North Beach. I was thinking “Bill, it’s called the tenderloin, you moron!”

viva! I hope you can make it, would be nice to meet you. Well all of you, but vivaeljeter comments a lot, so it would be interesting to put a face to name.
I lived in SF 25 years and downtown was always considered the shopping area around Union Square. The City has changed a lot so maybe younger folks consider most of SF to be downtown now. Google search says Van Ness & Market as center of downtown, ugh.
I would consider Van Ness to be the very outskirts of downtown. I’ve always thought of Market and Montgomery to be the center of downtown, though I might be biased since that’s right where I’ve worked ever since I moved to the Bay Area.
I would say that the majority of people that I know would consider downtown to be the Financial District, Union Square, Civic Center, SoMa, and Chinatown. Maybe North Beach too.
