We want you to come visit us at Pier 9, so we are organizing a get together for 30 people* to come by for a tour! 
Please reply to this forum topic and the first 30 people to post a comment with RSVP (or something like that) will get the spots!

Regardless of if we fill up, please show interest so we know whether to do this again :D

*30 people refers to Instructablers.  We understand that the younger folks will bring a parent or two, but we can't accommodate someone bringing a bunch of people with them.

Also, you can park at BART after 3pm for free. All you need to do is get off at Embarcardero and just walk north until you see Pier 9!

Penolopy Bulnick (author) 2 months ago

First excellent question posed. Where do you park? Unfortunately there is no parking in the pier. At least not for us or you guys.

It sounds like the best bet is metered parking which should be free after 6pm, so you just need to feed the meter until then. Also, it sounds like Broadway, which is the street just before (south of) the pier, perpendicular, is your best bet.

Sounds like a great vacation idea. I live on the east coast but my sister lives in SF, next time you run this tour maybe I will visit her.

Jeebuz! That's what I get for leaving the house!

Thanks @Penolopy for helping.

Penolopy Bulnick (author)  kentkb2 months ago

Are you going to be able to come, or should I go with the next person? I just want to make sure since it is tomorrow!

Your timing is perfect, I was just going to email you. My wife sprained her foot, and I am on House Husband duty.
I will have to miss this one, but will love to come some other time!
Thank you again for your help.
Cheers to you and the great Instuctables team!
Penolopy Bulnick (author)  kentkb2 months ago

Thank you for letting me know and I hope your wife's foot gets better!

Penolopy Bulnick (author)  kentkb2 months ago

One day, one day :)

Oh my, I would love to visit one day! It's a long way from The Netherlands to San Francisco though. Can I visit if the time is ready for me to plan a trip to California?

Penolopy Bulnick (author)  anoukkantelberg2 months ago
