Denver/Boulder MeFites: Geeks Who Drink

I have long been jealous of cities where MeFites regularly get together to kick ass at trivia. But hey, maybe we could do the same! So let's do it: a Denver/Boulder MeFi Geeks Who Drink trivia meetup at 8:00 pm, Monday, November 12, at the British Bulldog. The Bulldog was selected for its excellent proximity to public transportation.

Toronto meetup!

Hi all. Brujita is visiting our Rob Ford-plagued fair city October 22 to November 11. Would anyone like to get together to say hello to her, imbibe assorted beverages, and generally hang out? Her visit gives us a generous window of time, and as to the venue I will only say we should pick something central — I'll ask brujita where she's staying so we can narrow it down to a place convenient to her.

Board Games in Brooklyn!

I want to play board games with you fine people! I can host such an event on Sunday, Oct. 28th. We have Ticket to Ride, Scrabble, and Risk, and I've been looking for an excuse to buy Pandemic or Dominion. We can either use my place (we have three tables that could be used for playing games) or somewhere else.

Calgary October meetup

October meetup for those that are interested in meeting up for drinks and possibly something to eat.
Suggesting mid-week meetup so those that work downtown can attend, although if there is a consensus for the weekend, we could meet Oct 12th/13th.

Lizbunny suggested the Unicorn on Stephen Avenue (map). Beer selection there is good and they usually run specials, food is standard pub fare.

Board game night at the Windup Space.

Let's see what Monday brings, but it's as likely as not that this meetup will be postpwned by the storm. The meetup in September was fun. Let's do it again! The Windup Space has a regular board game night on the last Tuesday of the month. Leave a note if you think you can make it.

non-RPG games in southish Seattle

I'm wondering if there is enough interest to have a non-RPG gaming session in one of the more southern neighborhoods of Seattle. I could host in my home in Beacon Hill (preferred), or at a public venue somewhere not incredibly far away, such as Georgetown, Capitol Hill, or Seward Park. Tuesday or Fridays work best for me (anytime), second choice would be Sunday late afternoon/evening, third choice would be Saturday. Saturdays that would work for me in the foreseeable future are October 20th and November 10th. Sundays that wouldn't work are October 28th and November 4th. [more inside]
