Festival au Desert: The MeFi Edition

This is the longest of the long shots, but ... any other MeFites going to the Festival au Desert outside of Timbuktu, January 12-14? This will be my first one, and it'd be amazing to find another MeFite or two there to enjoy the Sahara and all that incredible music!

Thanksgiving! A! Pageant!

A ridiculously silly show in the style of your standard elementary school Thanksgiving Pageant, but will all the smallpox and religious intolerance added back in, plus really stupid jokes. Like, I mean, e.g. Miles Standish is never clearly standing or sitting. So. There's that. November 20-23! [more inside]

Edmonton's first ever meetup

I'm relatively new to Edmonton (been here 1.5 years) and it occurred to me I've yet to see a meetup proposed for our fair city. A quick search on MetaTalk suggests that there has never been a MeFi meetup in Edmonton. How can this be?! Let's change that... [more inside]

Whisky in Glasgow? (Nov 12, 13 or 14)

I realize this is rather last-minute, but I'd love a meetup that involves a pub, various local alcohols and the inevitable good-hearted mocking of each other's accents. Open to suggestions where to go, it'll be my first time in Scotland.

Meet The Lady: Miscast!

This will be a special screening party unlike anything Meet The Lady has attempted so far. I've invited an enormous rotating panel of past guest-stars to participate in a merry evening of inconsolable griping. The subject? Hollywood's most regrettable casting errors. A whole night of clips, criticism and carbs—it's like a holiday family visit, minus the crying babies and homophobia. Tickets and info here. [more inside]

Big Ideas Social Club - Brisbane Chapter

So I got inspired by the original Mefi's OwnTM Big Ideas Social Club and got the blessing to start a chapter in Brisbane. The first meeting's mostly a chance to come up with ideas for other meetings, and to see how demand is like. TEDxYouthBrisbane is at the same venue the next day, so if you want to spend a weekend here this is a good time. [more inside]

Another PDX whisky tasting?

This thread got me thinking about how much fun the last tasting was and now I'm thirsty for another one. I'm willing to host unless someone else wants to. Any interest? Sometime in December, maybe? To give the holidays a rosy happy glow?
UPDATE: Combined with MeFi Game Day #9 (Game Day 9: The Deckening)

Vancouver, BC - Meetup over beer? Coffee?

I proposed a meetup earlier this year and then screwed up moving dates and such, and couldn't make it happen. I'm hoping to make it right this time though... is anyone up for a meetup November 18 or 19? Or perhaps the following weekend? [more inside]

Occupy Toronto is marching from St. James Park next Saturday (Nov. 12th) at 2 PM. I am thinking of going, and bringing the family with me. Would any local-ish MeFites want to meet up and march, and grab something to eat afterwards?

Houston "Bad Art Night"

Proposed: a night that's kind of like an art "potluck." Bring your arty or crafty project and materials. Prepared to share. Once gathered, we engage in an excellent form of parallel play. Conversation ensues. Called "Bad Art Night" to 1) take the pressure off of trying to be "productive." 2) create permission to try new things and just play around and finally 3) lower the bar for entry -- no artistic talent required.
