Mutineer Meetup: San Francisco- October 30

Saheli and  A N N A, last SF meetup at Greco I’m still high off all the fun I had at Arzan’s adorable apartment, at the Brooklyn Meetup last week, so I feel like having some more meetup-induced bliss.

A week from today, join me at Caffe Greco in North Beach (in San Francisco) for a bit of a survivor’s brunch (since I will be recovering from what is sure to be a legendary Saturday night, filled to the brim with debauchery, mais oui). Two o’clock work for you? That should be perrrfect, to get all your tardy kundis there by Three.

Why will I be at home on the Wessss Saeeeed? To celebrate the vedding of a very special Mutineer, who is precious to a few of us North Dakota-bunking bloggers. If I didn’t have to schlep my mom back home on the Saturday after that blessed event, I would’ve had the meetup on Sunday, November 6. Who knows? If you whine prettily, I might hold office hours at my belowed Greco THEN, too. ;)

VHAT: Meetup!
VHEN: October 30, 2pm
VHERE: Caffe Greco, 423 Columbus Ave

Come painted and coordinated, because ye shall surely be photographed and flickr’d, that much is true. Can’t wait to meet you, and bounce off the walls from the cappuccino drip that Greco always hooks me up with…last time I was there for SIX HOURS, so no carping in the comments section ten days from now about how you were late and we were already gone. I keed, I keed! ;)

  1. Ever since I started reading this blog I’ve been praying for a west coast meet up. When you finally decide to have one, it happens to be on a day that I will flying back from Canada (in the evening). Let me know if u decided to do it again. by the way, u couldn’t have picked a better spot. north beach is beeeautiful! nxt time, try steps of rome with their cute waiters!

  2. when is the meet up going to be in the dirty south ATL? :)

    chick pea, can’t we just do our own meetup? apparently, you and i are the only 2 people who are in the south.

    =P

  3. steps of rome with their cute waiters!

    those waiters are obnoxious! the guys at greco keep their distance and don’t try to stick their tongues in your girlfriend’s mouth.

  4. nxt time, try steps of rome with their cute waiters

    Tsk, tsk, silly rabbits. This could be the 3593rd memorial San Francisco Sepia Mutiny meetup, but if Anna is presiding, it will forever be held at Grecco. :)

  5. Amen, Razib. besides, for me, “steps” was a haunt during college/just after in the 90′s (1996-1999). unfortunately, it’s nowhere near as charming as it was back then– and yes, I actually did have a waiter try and dry hump me, and not in the good way. they use shite espresso, too, though the tiramisu is still aight.

    Greco? They nicknamed me, start making my drink before I’m fully through the front door, have wifi, let us hang out for HOURS with minimual purchases with no worries (not the case at Steps) and…

    …if someone the owner doesn’t like hits on me, they get chased off with a broom. you can’t pay for that kind of entertainment. ;)

  6. I just had to stop and comment on this site’s design. It’s like a steaming cup o’ cappuccino in an Instant Foldgers landscape….

  7. malayalee heterosexual male- thank you! that’s very sweet of you. :) i think current guest blogger saheli looks lovely, too.

    :+:

    frank- if i make no other contribution to the virtual world, let that be it. ;)

    :+:

    courtney- on presumptuous behalf of the massively talented baristas who make this sublime capp possible, thanks. :D

    :+:

    and the rest of you? i know which hotlantans won’t be attending, but ads? saheli? absolutgcs? three-Vee? where you at?

  8. cough dayym! Anna you look really hot in the picture. I’m really sorry but I just had to say that :( I know I usually stick to arguing about politics, but I am err, a Punjabi male :$

  9. get all your tardy kundis there by Three.

    Oh Anna, now you’re just pandering to the (m)asses. :-P

  10. Hi, I am a newbie Mutiny reader! (Great blog! I wish I had found it earlier). Is this meetup open to all readers, old and new? And also, what exactly do you do at these meetups? Tx! ;)

    The Meetup is open to EVERYONE who can find parking in North Beach. ;)

    Seriously, all are welcome to attend, regardless of how long they’ve been reading us. What do we do at these Meetups? We drink excellent Illy-based drinks OR Pellegrino Arranciatas if you dislike coffee for some bizarre reason I’d prefer to not dwell on, lest I like you a little less after doing so.

    We TALK. And hang out. And laugh.

    That’s it. Somehow, it manages to be insane amounts of fun, with inside jokes born every other minute and pictures taken when we’re not birthing those. Seriously, just show up. It’s fun to mutiny IRL, promise. :)

  12. Everyone’s Anna-you’re-so-hotting so I’m here to say Saheli you’re the hottest bloggette!

    Before you ask, this isn’t a sympathy compliment (those who know me know I’m not a nice person)…perhaps it’s the Blogger T-shirt! And I’m just doing my bit to stop Anna’s head swelling too large ;)

  13. Anna does actually look very cute in that photograph. Like every Indian mother’s dream daughter-in-law. Awww, so innocent.

    what exactly do you do at these meetups? Tx! ;)

    If you’ve seen that movie “Eyes Wide Shut” then you’ll get the general idea….

  14. Hallo leddiss. I am seeing your pictures and I think to myself I must write to your, your beautiful both faces.

    I am currently studying UK but hopefully I am doctor soon, then you can say you have doctor husband. I am only joking. Hey, its cool.

    So what you both like doing? Why not try give calling me some time? I am very interested to talk to beautiful leddiss such as yourselfs. We can exchange biodatas – haha I make another joke. Yes I have good sens of hummer, you will like very much. I’m fair and tall, around 5’2″ but same like filmi stars with shoes on.

    So I cut a story short – I am fun and want very much hook you up. Try me, Im sure you will both like and I can even bring friend.

  15. Wow, these comment, > are interesting.. haha. Whens the next NYC meetup!? Sorry I missed the last one!

  16. The more comments I read, the more I really wanna start sepiamatrimony.com or sepiahookup.com. Seems like we could mint a lot of money. What say fellas ? Anyone intrested in that venture ?

  17. Dr. BongBreaker, please be sending your biodata and we will revert to you if the panel of 1,237 aunties and the dhobiwalla find you suitable for either of our girls. Please to also attach latest paystub.

    Don’t forget to do a “background check” on him too, because apparently the word of gossipy aunties, uncles, and friends-of-a-friend-of-a-friend who knows someone he once asked on a date is automatically the “gospel truth” and admissable evidence in a court of law ;)

  19. Desi Nole: I thought the same thing when SM was having it’s spot of “financial difficulty”, and the best part….we could probably get our parents to foot the bill ;)

    See y’all there!

  20. You kiddies. So punny today.

    If we’re brainstorming fundraisers that give good ogle factor, I vote Sepia Man of the Month calendar.

    cough In the interests of fairness and “equal opportunity”, how about ‘Sepia Mutiny Swimsuit Edition 2005′ ?

  22. ‘Sepia Mutiny Swimsuit Edition 2005′

    Now your talking Jai Singh. I will volunteer and provide the professeional shoot.

  23. I second Jai Singh on the SMSE 2005 idea. And whatever happened to not being so blunt when flirting ?

    Hmmm maybe, I should start a 3 credit hour course on that. Ideas for the curriculum are welcome.

  24. I wasn’t flirting with anyone. I never flirt with anyone. I have absolutely no idea about how to flirt with someone even if I wanted to. Ask DD. It’s like that scene from Friends where Ross attempts to hit on the pizza delivery girl in the doorway of Monica’s apartment by talking to her about how they “put the smell in oven gas”.

  25. Don’t forget to do a “background check” on him too, because apparently the word of gossipy aunties, uncles, and friends-of-a-friend-of-a-friend who knows someone he once asked on a date is automatically the “gospel truth” and admissable evidence in a court of law ;)

    that went without saying, yaar. Of course the opinion of an auntie who used to have a maid who was friends with Bongsy’s third-cousin’s dogwalker’s favorite checkout-line bagger’s adopted exchange student could completely ruin this rishta. And you know vutt I am telling you is truth only!

  26. And you know vutt I am telling you is truth only!

    Of course, because the fact that auntieji’s own daughter didn’t hit it off with the prospective groom during their own semi-forced-blind date has absolutely nothing to do with auntieji’s attempt to torpedo the unsuspecting suitor’s new rishta…..

    Ve should just dispense with judicious courts entirely and rely on “auntie evidence” instead. Auntieji’s never lie and never have their own hidden agendas ! Everyone knows that !

  27. No seriously, Bong Breaker talks like that! I remember when we were at Bombay Bronx and as soon as he started talking I was looking for the escape route…

  28. Cos that’s what I heard, although apparently they had to tone Apu’s desi accent down a lot from the original Bongsie-inspired version, otherwise he just would have sounded too stereotypical and cliched.

  29. Sunny you fiend! Giving away my secrets. I’d built up a smooth-talking lothario image (in my head on Sepia Mutiny) and you’ve dashed it all with rumours about my bud bud accent! Now be honest as to why you were looking for the escape route…you’d attracted the attentions of Big Jagjeet hadn’t you?

    Having known I won’t be having an arranged marriage from childhood, I’ve misbehaved. There is no way I’d pass a background check. Thank God for lowe marriages and friends who can keep secrets.

    SM hunk and babe of the month is a GREAT idea.

    And

    Bong Breaker – which one you like? left or rite?

    , OYBBB, I’ve already said – I’m leading the cheer, er..leading for Saheli!

  30. Jai, sorry yaar, it was my bad. They were supposed to be two sentences. But now that you brought it up, I do remember that eposide of friends. I just wish that

    1) I had your number (to give it away to women) 2) I was around when you flirted so badly, that would make a great post.

    But anyways, are we meeting in ATL ?

  31. thanks kush.

    i noticed this on saheli’s webpage (looking for ethnic clues before you enlightened me): She’s generally very fond of sour foods, as long as they’re vegetarian.

    are many bengali hindus vegetarian? my experience with bengali hindus is that they almost always eat some fish.
