San Francisco Travel Meetup with Grant & Tonei (6:30pm on August 7)

Buenos dias everyone!  Sorry I’ve been MIA for a while – it’s been a very busy summer. But now I’m in the Bay Area for Alaska’s inaugural flight from SFO to Mexico City, and to make up for my absence, I decided we should have an opportunity to see Grant’s (burger-eating) talents at Super Duper Burgers this coming Monday.  If you are free Monday evening, please join me, Grant, and other Bay Area travel hackers for burgers, fries, miles, points, MS, and more.  As a reminder, this location is on Market Street between Montgomery and Powell Street BART stations.

  • Where: Super Duper Burgers, 721 Market St, San Francisco, CA 94103 (Google Maps)
  • When: Monday, August 7th from 6:30pm – 8:30pm

No need to RSVP, just show up when you can and be ready to eat and talk.  Have a great weekend!

Buenas dias everyone,
