The Taters Shall Rise Again

Our first two installments of Geeks Who Drink trivia at The Rising have been such a success, we're going back for a third go around. Join us, a trivia host who can mostly pronounce all the questions, and perhaps an enthusiastic liquor company representative at 7:30 this Thursday in Inman Square.

Brighton Boardgame Evening

After our successful first-ever Brighton meetup, it would be great to have another one and hopefully get a few more folk along too. I thought it would be fun to spend an evening at Alcampo's Lounge (or somewhere equally amenable to games) and play a few lightweight boardgames (I have a few easy-to-learn ones and others are welcome to bring more along).

Edinburgh Pubby McPubface

I has been in the Edinburgh for nearly a year, and I would much like to meet muh fellow Mefites. There is much to discuss about the joys and travails of life in North Britain, yet nothing that wouldn't be improved by beer and bonhomie. Here's the plan. [more inside]

DC FOODIES mini meetup: Bonchon!

Hello FOODIES! I think it's safe to say our regular meetups will resume next month, but my October got a little busy. So this time around, I'm just going to call it for a Sunday lunch on the 23rd and an easy-to-reach location--one that comes recommended by several MeFites. Hope you can join me for delicious fried chicken and other Korean goodies at Bonchon!

Board games at the Blue Shirt

It's been a while since we had a board game meetup in this area, so let's see whether there's interest in a new one. One of us could host it, or we could meet at a restaurant such as the Blue Shirt Cafe on Davis Square or a conveniently large Panera Bread like the one near Fenway Park. Based on past meetups, Knight Moves seems to have been a bust. A weekend, which would allow for the most play time, would probably be best. When and where sounds best to you all? EDIT:Let's meet at the Blue Shirt Cafe on Davis Square at 2:00 on Sunday, October 30th! Feel free to bring any game or games you'd like to play.
