Cribbage, music, cocktails

Hi all – Moving back to NYC after many of my friends left/had kids/etc wasn't a positive thing for my social life. Same goes for being self-employed and working from home. Who wants to play some cribbage, put some records on, and have a drink? [more inside]

This is a Goat post. What happens post-Goat now? I don't even know how life works anymore in this new non-amphibian world.

Trivia night at the Pinhook in Durham

The recent weather here in the Triangle has me wanting to get out of the house more and get to know some of my fellow local MeFites better. Would people be interested in going to a trivia night somewhere? I hear the Wednesday night Bull McCabes trivia is good, though I haven't been before. [more inside]

Pub Trivia in Redwood City

Pub Trivia! Freewheel Brewing Company in Redwood City. Hosted by MeFi’s own Space Coyote. Next Monday, or maybe a different one? (That is, not this coming Monday, but next Monday: February 1.) FEBRUARY 1 IT IS DECIDED. Maybe many? Just not the third Monday of the month, since then it won’t be hosted by MeFi’s own Space Coyote. (Previously) It can be done, but only we can do it. If we want to. Which I do! So let’s. Anyone interested?

Horace Rumpole on So That Happened, a live talk show

I'll be appearing as a guest on So That Happened, a live talk show at ImprovBoston, Thursday, January 28th at 9:30pm. I have 10 free tickets I can offer to MeFites, so if you're a relatively solid yes, please send me (via MeMail or the email in my profile) an email address under which you can be registered for the guest list. I went and saw this show a couple months ago, and it was lots of fun, but it's always nice to have friendly faces in the crowd, so I hope you can join me.
