Post Thanksgiving Weekly Meetup

This is for the week after Thanksgiving, either Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday. I'm being democratic here, which is an experiment with these sorts of things. Well, except for the neighborhood.

Back to the LES because life is beautiful, the bars are beautiful and even the drinks are beautiful. We've been to Local 138 and the Magician and while I would be completely happy going back to either (especially the Magician), I was wondering if anyone had any other bars in that neighborhood they were fond of and wanted to hit.

Main Line: Revenge of the Candied Bacon

It has been quite a while since our last adventure to Tired Hands in Ardmore. The candied bacon is still on the menu and the beers are still weird and wonderful (I loved recent brews: Professor Caterpillar and Dr. Grasshopper). The only thing missing is us (I actually had one of the bartenders ask about us). [more inside]

Drinking with[out] men's underwear on in Portland

I'm going to be visiting family in the Portland area between November 27th and December 3rd, and I would love to gather sometime toward the end of my trip. A few weeks ago in MetaChat, Lutoslawski told me about a bitchin' sounding men's underwear emporium called UnderU4Men in downtown Southwest Portland. While we don't have to all buy men's underwear at the same time, it would be cool to time that visit with some mefi-jam-packed local beers and cocktail magic drinkies out on the town. I've not been to Portland in a few years, so please suggest some fabulous places for our extended temporal collision. Suggestion of potential activities beyond mere ingression is of course also welcomed. Looking forward to it! [more inside]

Who Are You Supposed To Be? A Doctor Who-themed play

After a popular season at the Edinburgh Fringe, my play about fans and fandom is premiering in London for three nights only in November: Nov 10, Nov 15, Nov 17. Tickets on sale at the Etcetera Theatre website.

Inspired by the "fake geek girl" meme and the ongoing discussion of whether there should be a female Doctor, WHO ARE YOU SUPPOSED TO BE is about the imperfect world we geeks have made for each other. [more inside]
