Geek Girl Brunch SF/Bay Area : Sherlock!



I started off 2017 with a Geek Girl Brunch get together! I'm still going strong as one of the officers for SF/Bay Area. I still have no idea what I'm doing but me along with the two other awesome officers are having fun figuring it out.

We decided for 2017 to up our brunches to once a month from last year's bi-monthly meet ups. Here's hoping with this change we'll get more of a turn out! So with that note, January's 2017 theme was

SHERLOCK.


Sherlock premiered back on the 1st of the month so we decided to keep rolling with it and make it our theme. Kristy found a pub that was accessible by public transportion and had parking. Finding restaurants that are near public trans is important to us because we are taking on the Bay Area and some folks don't drive like me.


The pub was called Kensington Circus Pub out in Kensington, CA which I didn't know existed. Another awesome plus about Geek Girl Brunch, finding all these little towns all around the Bay Area.


We all had some fun activities planned and Sarah, our other fellow officer picked up some cute Sherlock stickers for the girls. I printed out a fun search and find activity (by Christina Wald) that I found online and gave everyone a tea bag of Christmas tea. Kristy brought some trivia for us to play and we hand prizes.
One of the games was match the actors to their characters in the BBC series and I failed. I failed badly. I missed all the ladies.

The food, the food was delicious. I ended going with pancakes stuffed with bacon. BACON. I can't say no to bacon. I also ordered a hot buttered rum as my drink of choice and boy was I warm and fuzzy by the end of it.


The Geek Girl Brunch Sherlock was a great start to what I'm hoping will be a great 2017 for the SF / Bay Area chapter. Our next brunch is at the Alamo Drafthouse in SF. This is will be a new process for us! The LEGO Batman movie comes out on the 12th so we are hoping to pull off this event and maybe have more movie / brunch events in the future too.

If you want to know more about Geek Girl Brunch and see if your city has a chapter, check out the website here. If you don't see your city listed maybe think about becoming an officer and start your chapter!
