The SFLindy Hotel
a.k.a. "The Fulton Fun House"
Welcome to the San Francisco Lindy Hotel.
The SFLindy Hotel has had on the order of 500 guests staying for
thousands of guest nights. To avoid making this an unnecessary
burden, we have some information that will hopefully make your
stay more comfortable:
- Guest Book
- There is a guest book
that you should sign when you arrive, DO IT
A name, location, and why you're here will suffice.
- We stay up late at the SFLindy Hotel. Please note this when
making your reservation, if you need a quieter locale you might want
to check with your housing co-ordinator.
- Internet Access
- If you have a laptop, Dave can give you the key for the DaveNet wifi.
The 'Dig Dug' arcade cabinet (you are probably using it now)
is available for web browsing. If you need it for something more,
please talk to Dave, and do not shut the computer down.
There are two light switches to the left
of the front door. The right switch needs to be on for the computer monitor to work.
The computer desks on the other side of the room run Dave's work and web site and
CANNOT BE USED UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE. Don't consider Dave's keyboard as a challenge.
Seriously, DO NOT TOUCH DAVE'S WORK COMPUTER EQUIPMENT.
Feel free to ask him why. Along the same lines, do not touch the power
plugs near his equipment either. Consider the entire space off-limits.
- Located via the only door in the ballroom besides the front door.
Note that there is a bedroom that is only accessible via the
bathroom. So, make sure to close both doors when you're in the bathroom,
that's not just a closet. The shower is very touchy, turn it very slightly
to find the sweet spot between scalding hot and freezing cold. In case of
emergency (when Dave is awake) there is another bathroom available.
- We have electronic entry at the SFLindy Hotel. Be sure to talk
to us about access - this will get you into the garage. Head back to
the door in the back of the garage, this is the downstairs entry. You
must close the garage door after you come through, there's a
button at the door.
- Grab a towel from the bathroom and place it with your stuff.
Follow the advice of The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy and be
sure to know where your towel is - so do not keep your towel
in the bathroom. If you keep your towel in the bathroom, it will be
tossed in the laundry and you will be towelless.
- There is bedding in the crates in the foosball table room.
Use what you need.
- Feel free to use the kitchen, but PLEASE CLEAN UP.
The counters should be clean and the sink should be empty. Dishes
go in the dishwasher (at entry to kitchen) and pots/pans must be
handwashed. If you need food, head East up Fulton 2 blocks (towards
higher numbers) to the grocery store. As much as I'd love to provide
food for everyone, I simply can't afford to pay for thousands of meals.
Please do not leave any food in the kitchen without letting us know about it.
It starts to rot, otherwise.
- Feel free to use the stereo in the ballroom. We have no TV -
if you want to use the CinemaDave theater, then ask Dave to show
you how to use it.
- Parking / Directions
- Can be found here
- Current residents (9/2009) are David Madison
and Mr. Peterson T. Cat.
- If you want to know where to go Lindy or Blues dancing, Dave can
tell you, but if you want to see the city, you'll have to check with
other sources. (Dave also
recommends Alcatraz as the only tourist trap worth seeing).
