We will be meeting at the Glen Park Station Bar, which is located a mere half a block north of the Glen Park BART Station on Diamond St (Map). Glen Park Station is also conveniently situated right off the 280. Take the Monterey Blvd. Exit and head right onto Diamond St. Ample parking is available at the lot across from the BART station at Bosworth and Diamond.
PUBLIC TRANSIT: Glen Park Station is BART-accessible and along the J-line Church route. Several bus routes (44, 23, 26 and 49) have stops nearby.
For those would like to grab dinner in the area, there are many good options:
Next door to the bar is La Corneta Taqueria (http://www.lacorneta.com/). Tom, manager and bartender of Glen Park Station, said that it is fine if you want to bring in outside food to the bar. He will also have some snacks, hot dogs, etc. available for us as well as a drink special.
Gialina Pizzeria (http://www.gialina.com) is just down the street from the bar, serving Neopolitan-style pizzas and other Italian entrees.
For traditional American fare in a more formal setting, Chenery Park Restaurant is close by at Chenery and Diamond St. (http://www.chenerypark.com/)
Other dining options are within a short walking distance.
We will be sending out an evite this week so that we can track who is attending. Please reply promptly to that message so that we can prepare accordingly.
Thanks and see you on the 13th!
