    Frequent Flyer Giving is pleased to launch the 2013 SFO Mini-DO, scheduled for Saturday, October 12, 2013. This will be the last and LARGEST of our events this year and you won't want to miss it.

    The event will be held at The Slanted Door, a delicious fusion restaurant within the Ferry Building, Embarcadero District, in downtown San Francisco. The building is a historical landmark right on the San Francisco Bay, and if we get enough people signed up quickly enough, we will be seated outside on the gorgeous patio overlooking the water.

    We will be serving a family style feast with three appetizers, three entrees, and two vegetable dishes. Included in the price will be all non-alcoholic beverages. Alcoholic beverages are, of course, available. The meal will start promptly at noon.

    There will be special guests in attendance, along with a charity raffle/auction at the end with unique onboard and branded items!

    Each attendee will receive a free ticket to the United Airlines Family Day event on Sunday, October 13, an event at the SFO Maintenance Center that is generally reserved for employees and a limited number of invited guests. The program for that event is still being finalized, but for now, assume that it will be similar to prior years (aircraft on display, tours, etc.). In addition, each attendee will, at the time of registration, be able to request one additional ticket for a family member via the mini-DO payment website.Please note that this will NOT be the only way to attend Family Day. United Airlines will, as always, provide a separate opportunity for customers (including FT/MP) to attend the SFO Family Day on a complimentary basis, in a similar format/ticket allocation and with a comparable number of spaces to what has been provided in the past.

    In addition to some extremely special guests during the lunch, we’re also exploring additional activities for the mini-DO attendees over the course of the weekend. Aside from that, this is the same weekend as the annual Fleet Week event held October 10-14, which we’re told is another fun event you might be interested in attending. We also suggest that everyone takes a chance to wander around the interesting shops in the Ferry Building before or after the mini-DO.

    The Slanted Door

    Updates - The Mini-DO lunch will be on the outdoor patio at Slanted Door. Some wine will be included with your meal. There will be a series of special tours for the Mini-DO attendees on Sunday morning prior to Family Day. United will also be providing continental breakfast. We are officially full, but will start a waitlist!

    Tour #1: A close-up view of the construction for SFO's new Terminal 3 "Boarding Area E" concourse that's currently under construction.
    Tour #2: A “day in the life” of United’s Station Operations Control at SFO, which orchestrates United's daily operations in SFO.
    Tour #3: An informational discussion about United's plans for rolling out onboard connectivity across the fleet, including global satellite Wi-Fi and wireless entertainment.

    You are correct. Hopefully someone can fix it for me (I don't appear to have the option to do so).

    I'm in. :)

    FYI, it might be helpful to reference this new thread from the previous one (for those with alerts set)...I had no clue that payments had gone live until Mackieman happened to mention it.

    Mr. Desamo (aka redrick on FT) is also looking forward to it, though I hadn't even emailed him about the lunch yet.

    As an update, we will have some unique on-board items for raffle, and some high quality model planes up for auction (that you can probably get some of the execs to sign for you at the event!). Must be present to win!
