Start the new year right by coming to io9's San Francisco meetup, at the lovely new Borderlands Bookstore Cafe, this Thursday evening.


When: Thursday, Jan. 7, 7:30-9:30 PM
Where: Borderlands Cafe, 870 Valencia, SF (right next door to Borderlands Books)
Public Transit: Yes! The cafe is just a few short blocks from the 16th/Mission BART and J-Church MUNI line.
Parking: Yes! You can park about a block and a half away in the Mission Bartlett Garage.

Drop by and meet io9 editors Annalee and Charlie Jane, your fellow commenters, and geek out about science fiction! C'mon, South Bay people (you know who you are) - you can make it up!

A little more about our venue: Bay Area denizens know that Borderlands is the best damn science fiction/fantasy/horror/other cool stuff bookstore around. Their selection is amazing and their staff (including io9 book reviewer Chris Hsiang) will always recommend something interesting to read. Just a couple of weeks ago, owner Alan Beatts and the crew at Borderlands finally opened their long-awaited cafe next door to the bookstore, serving up tasty coffee, an amazing selection of teas, and delicious treats. Plus, they're selling a shockingly giant collection of pocket paperbacks at $.50 each while supplies last!

See you there on Thursday, near the shining lights of Starfleet Headquarters.

It's in the heart of the Mission and it's at night. As much as I want to attend, I live in San Jose and don't really feel like driving for an hour just to get stabbed.

Why not just host it on a street corner in the Tenderloin, or Hunter's Point while you're at it!

Or better yet, Nob Hill.
