Drinks in Santa Cruz?

Anyone in Santa Cruz want to go tidepooling and/or drink beers this Friday? There's an excellent sunset tide, and I keep meaning to try and meet up with iNat folks in Santa Cruz. The low tide is around 4:45pm and sunset is a bit after 5pm, so maybe tentatively meet at Scott Creek parking lot around 3, maybe shoot for beers somewhere in Santa Cruz around 6-8? Not sure where would be good for the latter. Is Whale City in Davenport cool? If not, how about Santa Cruz Mountain Brewing?Let's do Humble Sea instead (by popular demand)

Let's see, Santa Cruz folks include... @leptonia, @nmcnear, @andym, @jmaughn, @lemurdillo, @ldjaffe, @allisonjgong, @vivienneo, @byersconspiracy, @asjones. Maybe @biosam (not sure if you're still in the area)? @sea-kangaroo, any interest?

Also, if anyone knows, does the creek require fording at the moment?

Drinks in Santa Barbara and/or Claremont?

Santa Barbarians, I'm going to be driving down to the Southern California Botanist's Symposium in Claremont this coming Friday. At some point I believe @serpophaga recommended that we do some kind of iNat happy hour event at Night Lizard Brewing Company, which is sort of on the way down. Would anyone be interested in doing that, maybe like 6pm on Friday 10/4Thursday 10/3? I could also come down a day earlier and we could do it on Thursday if that works out better for people (which would also mean I wouldn't have to rush off to Claremont the same night).

Let's see, who's down there other than Adam. @stephanomeria of course, and @swpip, @tomleeturner, @matt_g, @jeffgoddard, @zabbey...

Bay Area happy hour, 6pm Friday August 23 at Lost & Found in Oakland

Hey all, just a reminder for anyone reading here that we'll be grabbing drinks at Lost & Found Beer Garden at Telegraph & 21st in Oakland (note that this is not the cocktail lounge in SF and not some kind of clothing store in downtown Oakland) this Friday at 6pm.

Also, if my last-minute journal posts don't really work for you, I have been trying to schedule these on meetup:

https://www.meetup.com/iNaturalist-Happy-Hour-SF-East-Bay/events/263267875/

Some folks I've mentioned before: @moonlittrails, @morgancantrell, @screws, @radrat, @ang, @anna-towers, @ericsimons, @leftcoastnaturalist, @joeysantore, @eddiebug, @marisa, @ouzel, @catchang, @damontighe, @clem, @jennitaur, @sea-kangaroo, @loloscheiner, @adrained, @rademacherdan, @hfabian, @marmot-mot, @birdingman

iNat happy hours moving to meetup

To anyone following me who has expressed an interest in Bay Area happy hour events: we're going to start organizing them on meetup: https://www.meetup.com/iNaturalist-Happy-Hour-SF-East-Bay. I'm hoping that will make it easier to keep track of when they're happening and discuss future venues, b/c these journal posts just seem really ad hoc. I might still keep doing the journal posts, but this way there's a better, more consistent way for people I don't explicitly mention to keep track.

Anyway, next one is next Friday, 6pm at the Beer Coop in SF (as requested by @mishimatsu). Sadly, I'll be out of town, but @tiwane will be there. Other SF folks who might be interested: @joelle, @robberfly, @metsa, @ocean_beach_goth, @rebeccafay, @mrchasse.

Also, @carrieseltzer's going to start doing this in DC, so anyone in that area, check out https://www.meetup.com/iNaturalist-Happy-Hour-DC

Tucson, AZ Happy Hour on Friday 6/21 and... recommendations?

Hey Tucson, I'm going to be in your city for a conference this coming week. Anyone want to meet up for beers on Friday (6/21) evening around 6pm? I know zilch about Tucson so I'll need help choosing a venue if anyone's interested. Some place with drinks, preferably without table service, maybe food. Pueblo Vita looks cool, maybe?

Also, I think I'm free to explore Sunday and Monday, so I need day trip recommendations! I've been to Saguaro National Park (East), Madera Canyon, and Mt. Lemmon (very briefly), so I might just return to those places. I also see it's really, really hot there right now, so maybe I should shoot for higher elevations?

Let's see, who's active in Tucson: @desertharrier, @maxkewlbirder1998, @heyitshelios, @ck2az, @janeyd, @davidbygott, @entomo-logic, anyone up for a beer / have suggestions about where to get said beer? Also, @psyllidhipster, are you in Tucson now?! @treegrow, any chance you'll be in town? @micrathene & @hemispingus: I know you two are on the other side of the state, but just in case you'll be in the Tucson area... I'm sure you could also recommend a brewery you like in town.

Bay Area happy hour Friday April 26 (tomorrow)?

Ugh, again I put this on the calendar and forgot about it until the last minute. Anyone want to get together in SF? I know CNC is on and everything. Bad timing.

Bay Area Happy Hour Friday March 22: Anyone?

I put an iNat Happy Hour on the calendar for tomorrow like a month ago and totally forgot about announcing it or choosing a location. Looks like I'm the only one from the iNat team who could make it (aside from maybe @alexshepard, assuming it's in SF). Is anyone else in the SF / Oakland area interested in grabbing a drink tomorrow evening?

Open to location suggestions BART, though maybe we should keep it near BART. Here's some ideas:

Jupiter (Downtown Berkeley)
Temescal Brewing (MacArthur, Oakland)
Woods Bar (19th St. Oakland)
Kilowatt (16 St., SF, but will it be a madhouse on Friday?)

Peninsular folks (@sea-kangaroo, @gyrrlfalcon, @leslie_flint), any suggestions within walking distance of BART down your way?
