Polish people and food stores in San Francisco

Hi there,

I just arrived in San Francisco and I started to search the internet for Polish people in the SF bay area. All I found was kind of Polish Community but as I am not Polish (but German), I do not consider joining the polish community. All I want is to talk, to communicate, to spend some time with Poles. I love Poland and the Polish language (I speak a bit and I would like to continue learning and talking) - hope you are out there and give me a sign.

Hi Marit,
I recommend SFPolskis. Here is their yahoo page: groups.yahoo/group/SFPolskis

You can subscribe to their newsletter and receive information about meet-ups (they are meeting, for example, this Friday for happy hour at Medjool Lounge). I think it's a pretty laid back group; you don't have to be Polish to join, just have an interest in the language/culture. Many native Poles go to the meet-ups so you'll likely make friends that can help you practice your language skills.

Also keep an eye out for certain Polish cultural events. Every year there is a Polish festival in Golden Gate Park where you can meet tons of Poles and practice the language. Unfortunately, it just passed a few weeks ago, but be sure to go next year!

Oh, and if you can get out to Walnut Creek (by car or on BART) there is a Polish restaurant called Chopin Cafe. It is owned by a Polish couple, the waiter is Polish, most of the clientele is Polish--another great place to meet people, practice the language, and enjoy some bigos :)

Merged: Polish food shops in San Francisco

Hello,

Recently arrived in California from Chicago, and I find it hard to locate any Polish food stores here. My town is Pleasanton.
Does anyone know of any Polish sausage shops round here?

Thanks for any help,

Gezzababy

Dunnoi about Pleasanton, but in the same general area there is Seakor Polish Delicatessen and Sausage Factory. It is located at 5957 Geary Boulevard. The phone number there is: (415) 387-8660.

Poles in San Francisco



Are there many Poles in San Francisco Bay Area?

Last time I searched the internet I found a few small groups but more was happening in Los Angeles.
