Ubuntu 8.10 Release Party: San Francisco

Fortunately, I will be in San Francisco when Ubuntu 8.10, the glorious Intrepid Ibex is released and as such, it would be remiss to not organise a bit of a knees up (translation for my American friends: “drinks in a bar“). So, in conjunction with partner in crime Tom Haddon, we are organising the Ubuntu San Francisco Release Party. Yes!

Here are the details:

  • WHEN? – Thursday 30th October : 7.30pm
  • WHERE? – The lower bar as you walk in on the left, The Thirsty Bear, 661 Howard St, San Francisco, CA 94105 : Tel: (415) 974-0905
  • HOW?Google Maps

The plan is simple. There is no plan. We plan on just meeting up at The Thirsty Bear, having a few drinks and getting to know each other. Everyone is welcome, from any project, field or otherwise – just come along, meet some people and celebrate the new release. We have deliberately kept this as low-key as possible – the main idea is to meet new people and have a bit of fun. :)

If you want to come along, all you need to do is show up – feel free to post a comment on this blog if you will be there.

This is one of many release parties. Go and see Ubuntu 8.10 Release Parties In Your Area and if there isn’t one in your area, why not organise one!

    I’ll be there in spirit!

    We’re doing the same on the other side of the pond – at Waxy O’Connors, near Piccadilly, London. As with your knees-up, everyone is welcome :smile:

    Jono – the proper thing to do in the SFBayArea is to publicize this by posting an announcement to the bay area LUGs: BALUG, SFLUG, SVLUG, PenLUG, LUGOD, SacLUG, NBLUG, EBLUG, BUUG, oh, & BerkeleyTIP. :)
