Concerning food, they say:

  the grill opens around 6.00 p.m. each day and closes when
  everyone's fed (or Aundre's fed up)

Festivities will start at 6:00pm and continue until we've all left.

Zeitgeist is on the corner of Valencia and Duboce[6] and looks
like this.[7] It's three blocks from the 16th St BART station[8]
(16th St and Mission).

When you show up, you should look for some kind of home made
sig-beer-west sign. We will try to make it obvious who we
are. :-)  Note:  Please look for the sig-beer-west sign, not for a
particular person. sig-beer-west may have different hosts from
month to month.

Everyone is welcome at this event. We mean it! Please feel free to
forward this information and to invite friends, co-workers, and
others (all of legal drinking age) who might enjoy lifting a glass
with interesting folks from all over the place.

Can't come this month?  Mark your calendar for next month.  (Do it
now before you forget!)  sig-beer-west occurs on the third Saturday
of each month.

Any questions, comments, suggestions of things to do later on that
evening, or new venue suggestions ... email the current
sig-beer-west Instigator. The Instigator's Username is extasia. The

sig-beer-west FAQ

1.  Q: Your announcement says "techies and their friends".  How do I
       know if I'm a techie, or a friend of one?

    A: Well, actually, you don't have to be a techie to attend.  You
       just have to be able to find the sig-beer-west sign at this
       month's event.  That's it.   Simple, huh?

2.  Q: I'm not really a beer person. In fact I'm interested in
       hanging out, but not in drinking. Would I be welcome?

    A: Absolutely! The point is to hang out with fun, interesting
       folks.  Please do join us.

3.  Q: Is parking difficult in the city, like maybe I should factor
       this into my travel time?
    A: Yes.

       Note for April 2004:   Zeitgeist is three blocks from 16th
       St BART.[9] You may want to consider BARTing[10] and not worrying
       at all about parking.

sig-beer-west was started in February 2002 when a couple Washington,
D.C. based systems administrators who moved to the San Francisco Bay
area wanted to continue a dc-sage[11] tradition, sig-beer, which is
described in dc-sage web space as:

  SIG-beer, as in "Special Interest Group - Beer" ala ACM, or as in
  "send the BEER signal to that process".

     [11] http://www.dc-sage.org/

The original SIG-beer gathering takes place in Washington DC, usually
on the first Saturday night of the month.
