   the javacat place closes up unpredictably so 
we've moved our meetings to cafe euro on geary 
at 26th avenue, a few blocks west of javacat. 
http://www.sf-lug.com  http://www.sf-lug.org 
   no particular charge, probably the place 
would like you to buy something, but they seem 
easy going. 

   tonight, and every third tuesday each month, 
it's the BALUG group that meets at the four seas 
restaurant in chinatown. 
   you can attend the talk (around 8 PM) 
without purchasing the $13 dinner; tonight's 
talk seems pretty popular, so you might not 
be able to fit in. they ask you let them know 
if you plan to come and share the dinner 
(family style).
