Subject: San Francisco GTG August 24th - Details and RSVP
Hello Ziners,

Surprisingly, it really is hard to find a good Italian restaurant in North Beach (the Italian neightborhood of San Francisco) that is open for lunch on the weekend and not swamped with tourists!

So....

You are all invited to a lunchtime GTG in San Francisco on Saturday August 24th. We will be dining on some of the best Persian cuisine in the City. I have made reservations for 12:30 PM at Maykadeh, 470 Green Street @ Grant in San Francisco. Here is the restaurant's web site:

After lunch, we'll explore North Beach in search of coffee and dessert.

Parking is impossible, as it is throughout our fair city. Maykadeh has valet parking for $7. For public parking garages, try North Beach at 755 Vallejo St. or Portsmouth Square at 733 Kearny St, although public garages are quite expensive, so it may cost more than valet. For public transportation, Muni lines 15 and 41 pass nearby on Columbus. Or consider BART, the walk is about 15 minutes.

Please RSVP by Wednesday, August 21st.
