The Big Trivia Night

(The description you are about to read is real. Only the questions have been changed to prevent an investigation.) This is the city... Houston, Texas. It was Wednesday, December 2nd. It was chilly in Houston. We were working the Geeks who Drink trivia detail. It was seven p.m. when we got to Sherlock's Baker Street Pub in Rice Village. The tables were full. Perhaps we should have arrived earlier, like 6:30 or so. [more inside]

Quite possibly the end of an era

The Blue Frog is shutting down in January and there's a pretty good chance the owners will have alienated the staff so much that everyone will throw in the towel before then, so this might be the last First Wednesday. If you've ever been, you'll want to join us this time. If you've never been, you must join us this time. [more inside]

Short-Notice Denver Meetup?

Hi CO Mefites, turns out I'm in town from Phoenix for the next couple of days and at loose ends. Any interest in a meet-up either Monday, Nov. 23 or Tuesday, Nov. 24? To sweeten the pot, here's a list of things I can promise to converse with you upon if prompted: GOATS, firefighting, graduate school, what fantasy novel you should read next (a personal favorite), How Not To Know Anything About the Stock Market.

Orphan's Thanksgiving

The proposed meetup thread sort of stalled, but if anyone's free and would like to join my lovely non-mefi partner and I for a kick-ass Thanksgiving dinner that can't be beat, come on by. We're cooking even if no one can make it, so no party size is too small. [more inside]

Straysgiving Louisville

Hello Louisville peeps. I assume most of you have nearish family/friends to hang with on this upcoming holiday, but in case you don't: Greg Nog and I are hosting a Straysgiving at our place on Thanksgiving Day. We will cook everything and it will be delicious and also we have lots of boardgames and Bob's Burgers Thanksgiving songs and all you have to do is bring yourself and your appetite (for destruction). If there is any interest, I will follow up with our address (the currently-listed address is just for Shelby Park, our lovely neighborhood).

Awesome Folky Cool Times with Laura Marling in Chicago?

I'm just wondering if any other Mefites are going to or are interested in catching Laura Marling at Martyrs on Sunday the 22nd. I have yet to meet any of you cool Chicago people and I figured this might be a good opportunity to do that. Tickets here if you're interested. I've not seen her live yet, but she's really fantastic. Just checked to make sure there's still some on sale and as of now there are.

Disneyland Meetup?

Going to Disneyland is mostly about having a great capacity to stand in lines. Standing in line with people that would be really interesting to talk to sounds like a win to me. Standing in line with beer in California Adventure land with interesting people would be....magical. [more inside]
