November Rain Goat

Inquiring minds want to know if the Metafilter Last Supper picture is hanging on the wall at the Goat still. Why don't we check it out and also have a meet-up? [more inside]

The lost ghouls meetup. Movie + Drinks + Candy in Fort Greene

I've come to realize I'm not the only aimless Brooklyn mefite when it comes to Halloween this year. Perhaps there are more! This is a hybrid meetup, but that's not an option in the drop-down. Movie + drinks! And candy! [more inside]

Allons-y!

I will be in NYC this Saturday and would love to meet some of you lovely peeps. I've been told about a bar called The Way Station that is a Doctor Who/Steampunk/nerdy bar. I was thinking meeting up there around 5ish since the Yelp reviews says it gets rather busy and live music starts at 7. There is a happy hour from 4-8 everyday. [more inside]

Majestic San Antonio, November 9

Since I am going to be in town for several days for a conference, and since one of the AskMe recommended things to do downtown is go to the Majestic Theatre, I have tickets for the symphony on Saturday, November 9. Would anybody be interested in getting together for dinner downtown around 6-ish? Since y'all know the area and I don't, I'm open to suggestions for your favorite places downtown (I will not have a vehicle).

Dim Sum - Manhattan redux edition

Have we not had an NYC dim sum meetup since February 2012?! This shall not stand. Chinatown's The Golden Unicorn has been conducive to good meetups before, but, would people like to try Pacificana in Brooklyn's Chinatown for a change? I went there once with family and thought the dim sum was more varied than Golden Unicorn's, but the wait time for a table can be long. -- EDIT - Manhattan wins this round, for Saturday 11/9 at 11am.

Washington DC is open again!

I'm going to be in DC on Friday November 1 for a meeting (which just got finally confirmed, even though everyone in the department I contract for has been furloughed recently and so it hasn't had any organizers...) and I'll be staying overnight. Wondering if any mefites want to meet up for dinner and/or drinks? I'm staying in Dupont Circle, but happy to head anywhere. Update: we have added a restaurant venue.

Looks like the 50th anniversary of Dr. Who is at 11:50 a.m. on Saturday, November 23 for us on the west coast. This could be an entertaining start to a potluck/game day. Or maybe some soapmaking for holiday gifts. Whatever strikes the fancy of whoever turns up. [more inside]

A Book Swap. For swapping books.

What say we have a bookswap-type meet-up? Bring a few good books you're willing to part with, and maybe take some new ones home. Like a clothing swap, but with fewer reasons to undress and, hopefully, no embarrassing stains to explain. [more inside]

Mefi's own Antonio Lulic @ Renaissance Dupont Circle Hotel

One of our own, armoured-ant aka Antonio Lulic, is doing a North American tour and will be in Washington DC on October 16th. The lovely Coldchef suggested it to me which he sadly cannot attend so I was seeing if any Mefites would like to meet up for dinner and/or drinks beforehand and then attend the show which is free. Antonio's bio page is here and you can check out some of his music here.

Like MST3K? Watch me watch Atlas Shrugged!

In the style of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and RiffTrax, comedian Matt Filipowicz and I will spend one memorable evening performing Atlas Riffed, a live, second-by-second running commentary on the notoriously awful film adaptation of Ayn Rand's libertarian screed: Atlas Shrugged: Part One. We're going to make one of the worst films ever made actually fun to watch and slowly but surely advance our covert crypto-communist agenda on an unsuspecting public - and I want you to be there.
