San Francisco 11th crawl

Postby enrico » Sat Sep 02, 2006 4:44 am

September 23rd it is ! Let's discuss options for where to spend it.

One option that has been suggested is taking the ferry to Sausalito ...
any other ideas ?

Sausalito is wonderful. Taking the ferry gives the opportunity for urban stuff on the SF side as well as all those nifty views from the crossing. Sounds perfect :)

Sausalito does sound good. Isn't there a chili cook off there that weekend?
Hooray for art blogs!

Sausalito--Perfect idea!

Sounds great to me. Lots of variety of things to draw! I'm in the East Bay so not sure about the ferry.

Sounds good to me. I might have to cut out early because I have a hip hop show to go to that night in Stockton.

This will be my first sketchcrawl, and I want to explore SF! But I will still come if you go to Sausalito. 8)

Sausalito sounds good :D

Coming off the ferry, to the left is a bunch
of shops and huge waterfront homes we
can draw.

To the right, there is a marina, park, and
mini beach with a Kayak rental...but it's
quite a hike :shock: (It's behind the
Sausalito Art Studios)

Ryan R - You're right, there will be a Chili Cook-Off
September 23, 2006 - 11:30 AM

The park is 7-8 blocks to the right when getting off the Ferry.

Ok !!! Just conferred with Gerald, who's giving me a hand planning this ... and we came up with the details for meeting !!

The ferry to Sausalito leaves from infront of the Ferry Building at the Embarcadero. We want to get the 12:00 ferry.
SO WE ARE MEETING AT 11:00am at PEET'S COFFEE in the Ferry Building.
Here's the location for that.

Ok ? Then we'll got get our tickets and get on the ferry to Sausalito !

Does anyone have experience with taking this Ferry ?
I wonder if we should recommend people to buy a ticket before hand or just buy it the same day ...

I'm not sure if this helps, but here's a synopsis of the parking situation at the embarcadero center...not sure if it's accessable during the lovefest event though...

Hope this still works out! :(

Amelia - that's great info on the parking. Thank you so much.

I had no idea Love Fest was going on the 23rd :shock:
