SF Babel MeetUp
Thursday International Language Exchange
Make friends and practice speaking another language every Thursday in downtown San Francisco. We're a group of people from different countries that meet each week to practice languages and make new friends over drinks! Each Thursday, native speakers of English, Japanese, French, Spanish, English, Portuguese, Mandarin and many other languages meet in an artsy bar close to Union Square, BART, and many bus lines.
When you arrive, get a sticker from the host, on it you write your name and the languages you speak and those you'd like to practice to make it easy to find people to talk to. Second, put $1 in the donation jar to support the group. It's open to all nationalities and languages and you can talk about anything you like. You don´t have to be an advanced speaker, or even speak a second language - its for everyone!

with Charleston Swing
Gaucho is a masterful Bay Area band that combines the influence of gypsy jazz of 1930’s Europe with the rhythmic drive and collective improvisation of New Orleans swing music, gutbucket blues and elements of ragtime. Their sound, a uniquely American concoction, blends instrumental acuity and lighthearted humor that keep their audience coming back for more. As founder, guitarist, and main composer Dave Ricketts says, the band is “in love with the music of Louis Armstrong, Fats Waller and Jimmie Rodgers, as well as the stories, the life styles and the foot steps of hundreds of other great jazz, blues, country and rock musicians that created the sound of American Music from roughly 1900-1950’s”
