Here are some reminders and updates for the upcoming trip to Anchor Brewing in San Francisco for the Club of the Year award presentation:
For those of you who will be attending the Anchor Party on Saturday the 18th, the festivities kick off at 1pm and will wrap up about 5. There will be lots of great beer & food, so if you plan on attending the party and will not be taking the bus up to SF, please send Audrey an email at [email protected] so that we can give the guys up at Anchor a head count as they put the party together!
Bus tickets are $85. You can leave your payment at CCHBS. Please leave cash or a check in an envelope clearly marked with the names of everyone the payment is covering along with your contact information. PLEASE pay ASAP to help those of us who are organizing the trip.
Hotel reservations MUST be made by Friday 2/3 to get the group rate. Last I checked there were still a few (and I mean a few) rooms left in our block so if you want one, get in touch with the Carlton.
The plan is for the bus to leave CCHBS on Friday the 17th at 8:30am with an eye on being in the city by 3:30pm so as to enjoy the San Francisco Beer Week festivities. There are no official club-sanctioned events aside from the Anchor trip, so make plans with other PG members. We were going have an outing to Beer Revolution in Oakland, but it appears timing was bad, so that is off (although I believe a large group will be heading there Friday night).
The Carlton is a union hotel, as such they HAVE to remove the baggage from the
bus. Sadly this means you are on the hook for $6 for ever bag. It sucks but
there isn’t anything we can do about it. Please bring cash to pay for it.
Also, plan on bringing lunch, the Bay Bridge will be closing Friday night is it
is imperative we get up there as fast as we can. So we’ll have a quick stop to
stretch our legs, but we won’t be stopping for lunch. Far from ideal, but it
beats sitting in LA and SF traffic in one day.
