John "Grangousier" Peacock at the Stage Door

OK, I've done this half-hearted self-promotion on Metafilter before, and people encouraged me to post if I was doing another gig (and it's taken this long to get one) - I'll be playing a thirty-five minute set, probably at about 9:15 at The Stage Door in Waterloo (behind the Old Vic, nearest tube Waterloo). Free entrance. [more inside]

The One Where MeFi LA Visits the Shuttle

*EDIT* I changed the meetup time to 2:30 since that's when we'll be meeting, but you should still buy tickets for 3:00! The Space Shuttle Endeavor has just come to LA, and I'd love to get acquainted with it along with some fellow MeFites. There's a $2 ticket fee, you should buy your tickets for the 3:00 show here http://www.californiasciencecenter.org/ (we're meeting at 2:30 to organize ourselves before going in)

Holiday Ale Festival

The Holiday Ale Festival is being held Nov. 28th - Dec. 2nd, 2012 in Pioneer Square. We missed last year's and nearly missed this one! You can buy advance tickets on the website (wristband, required tasting mug, and 12 tickets, $30 + $3.40 processing fee) or at the door ($30, wristband/mug/10 tickets). Who's with me? EDIT: Date/time changed to avoid conflict with Game Day. It's open Wed/Thu/Fri eves until 10pm, or we could do Sunday afternoon to avoid the evening crush.

Guy Fieri's not the only American with a kitchen in THIS city

As I feel eideteker has a number of points concerning the December 9th Meetup, and it's not often that folks from out of town get to see other members of the community, I propose a counter-shindig the same hour and day over at Becco, which is 2 blocks away in Time Square. Thus, in the spirit of civility and diplomacy, the two groups can converge afterward and shake hands. Who's with me, comrades?

Thanksgiving! A! Pageant!

Thanksgiving! A! Pageant! is a pageant (about Thanksgiving). Join such luminaries as Abraham Lincoln, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Calvin Coolidge, and Jesus the Christ as they tell the story of the first meeting between the godly Pilgrims and those wacky Natives (who didn't even speak English!). Featuring songs, Squanto, Dutch punk teenagers, King James I of England, a dream ballet, and more, this is the real story of how America became... America. But you know like AMERICA. One night only, Thursday, November 29th, 8pm at Ars Nova. Here is a thing to click to get tickets, which are $12, and which are totally worth it, I swear. [more inside]

End of TropMed meeting in Atlanta

Any MeFites at the American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene in Atlanta this year?

Tonight is the last evening, but it's possible to have a post-meeting lunch tomorrow afternoon. Meet at the Marquis Marriott, then select a second location for drinks and/or lunch?
