    Hello, folks. the title says it all. I'm wondering if any TalkBass members residing in Northern California are interested in spending an evening of fun, fraternization and controlled low end mayhem somewhere in the San Francisco Bay Area. I don't know the "when" and the "where" just yet. Before I do all that, I'd like to know for sure that someone besides me would show up. So let me know if there's an interest by replying to this post or e-mailing me privately.

  2. Well, I don't live in No. California, but I will be spending a week there next week.

    Does that count ?

  3. time I'll be there is probably some time around April, assuming I get enough time off school for spring break. Otherwise, I won't be there til late June/early July.
    But, then again, with my kinda luck, I'll miss any get together there would be. And if I don't, my parents would probably be overtly skeptical about it, and wouldn't let me go. :p Oh well. :D

    Great Idea Big.

    How about a day at the races, Golden Gate Fields?
    I guess not, drinking in the daytime and gambling, tough mix to cut through.
    Strip bar? To distracting.
    Banquet room brunch? To much to organize.
    My house in Oakland is on the smallish side.
    Gelb's parking lot and tailgate!

    Well, my original Californa idea isn't exactly going gangbusters either. If it doesn't get any better, It'll boil down to Vic and me going shopping for CDs at Rasputin Music in Berkeley.:rolleyes:

  11. Big Wheel,

    Where is that music store in Berkeley ? I will be visiting JPL at Moffett Field next week, and could spend some free time perusing the local music stores.

    Keep me posted ... I fly out on Monday.

    Subway Guitars. 1800 (or so) Cedar Ave.

    They have a website too. I think it's or something. you can find it on a search engine. I go there sometimes, as I find Fat Dog's stringed creations curiously fascinating, although I can't think of coughing up the dough for one when I could get some new toy on eBay.

    By the way, this get together thing is still just an idea. So far I got Vic. I know of another TalkBass member who lives in the area, but he hasn't expressed any interest yet, so I'll let him be for now.

    Sushi at Uzam on College Ave is absolutly amazing and they have a good Saki selection from dry to sweet. If your in the area and you don't like sushi, as I did, this place will convert you. I highly recomend this place.

  14. Thanks Big,

    I'll check out some of the "Stringed Creations".



  15. That sounds like a good idea Big Wheel.I live in the foothills about an hour and a half or so from SF.If it was on a weekend I could make it.

    There gonna be girls at that thar git togever? hehehe.....

  20. Man...the more I see this thread in here the more I wanna all I gotta do is ask my mom if she'd let me...
    "Mom, would you be willing to let me go hang out with a bunch of musicians, most of whom are older than me, next time we're in Palo Alto?"
    "Ummm...I'm not sure, go ask dad."
    "Dad, would you be willing to let me hang out with a bunch of musicians, most of whom are older than me, next time we're in Palo Alto?"
    "Ummm...I don't know. Go ask your mother."
