Tiki Fun at Longitude in Oakland

I'm going to be in the Bay Area for a few days next week, and as a huge Tiki fan, I'm very much looking forward to checking out the new, well pedigreed Tiki Bar, Longitude. I'm thinking 6-ish onward on Friday the 7th. Anyone interested?

State College, PA Meetup at Zenos

Field trip: the Museum of Jurassic Technology TAKE TWO

Reposting from previous event! Chicainthecity most courteously reminded me that the event needed updating, and we discussed NOVEMBER 8th as the most likely afternoon. The consensus is now November 22nd: let us know in the thread! The Museum of Jurassic Technology in Culver City is a place that engenders love and and serious confusion, perhaps in equal measures. It is a palace of many mythical wonders and it was proposed as one of the next meetup locations. It's open until 6:00 PM on Saturdays; the cafe offers complimentary tea and cookies until 5:00. (It is also close to the Center for Land Use Interpretation, which is equally a palace of wonders if you like scholastic text and resource allocation. They also have quite a cool map of points of interest in the area around their Culver City branch.) [more inside]

Semi-centenary Gig

I'll be playing a gig on Thursday 23rd October to mark my birthday, which is on Friday. What I didn't realise until recently was that it would engender a combination of performance anxiety, promoter anxiety and pre-party anxiety (what I referred to yesterday as the Neapolitan Ice Cream of anxiety), so now I'm using whatever means I can to spread the information. This may be an abuse of IRL, in which case, sorry. [more inside]

Cthulhu! X-Files! Metal Music! Medieval History! Comics! Octopi! Golden Age Horror!

If the event title appeals to you perhaps we can chat and get to know one another :) I am a Canadian woman in my early 30s with vacation time from January onwards, and no idea how to spend it. Rather than throw a dart at a map (while I chant unspeakable abominations) maybe this will help me refine my plan. I am just looking to make friends who share my interests. More inside...
