Our meeting space is in the Kanbar Forum at The Exploratorium, on The Embarcadero (near Green St. at Pier 15), San Francisco. Kanbar is just inside the Exploratorium's front doors, on the right hand side. it's a fantastic space with plenty of seating, wifi, power outlets, ethernet and space for your laptops. Also has a BIG video screen and excellent sound.
Note that this meeting does NOT include free entry to the Exploratorium museum.
Schedule: 6:30-8:30pm, Q&A with Mac gurus, discussion of various Mac matters and news, and sometimes there's a featured speaker. This is a very valuable, yet totally FREE, event.
After the meeting there's a no-host group dinner at a nearby restaurant, if you'd like to munch with the Mac Users.
