January TINCC

So, folks, are we meeting up on January the 5th at the Goat, or will we all be a) too cold; b) too out of town; c) too tired from skiing; d) too emptied of holiday cheer to give it a try?

T-Bone in the Twenty Teens with the Last Bumper Car Show, Er, MeetUp

That tattered fragment of the ghost of its former self, the Fun Forest sees its last weekend ever fall on the first weekend of the New Year. After 7 PM, Sunday, January 2nd, 2011, there will no more rides, games, lazer tag or bumper cars. So, I propose Bumper Cars at 5 PM and then, after 7 PM, conversations that sparkle like wine, with finger foods and beverages on the side, at a warm, convivial and comfortable venue location to be determined later but not far from the Seattle Center. Maybe a venue along the lines of the 1st Avenue Elysian--that was a fun meetup... [more inside]

Meetup with Jordan of Jordan, Jesse, Go!

If you are a Jordan, Jesse, Go! fan, Mr. Jordan Morris himself will be doing a meetup in Seattle. I will be in attendance, and I assume there's some overlap between the MeFi crowd and the MaxFun crowd, hence the crosspost. The event details have already been hammered out on the MaxFun side of things: Shorty's, Fri Dec 17th, starting at 8pm

Wikileaks discussion

Hey Philadelphia mefites, I'm very interested in the ongoing wikileaks drama, and wanted to talk about it in person with other smart, thoughtful people. And metafilter has proven itself in this thread and others as full of such people. Is anyone interested in meeting up at a bar tonight and sharing thoughts and conversation about this topic? I know it's short notice, but I hope some of you can make it! [more inside]

Characters is a cool place- great sound and a lot of space, with no cover charge. The bands play outside, so dress for the weather and if it is raining, check here for an alternate venue. 21+.

"Why Not A Spider Monkey Jesus?" at The Toronto Small Press Book Fair!

I'll be selling copies of my book "Why Not A Spider Monkey Jesus?" at The Toronto Small Press Book Fair! "Why Not A Spider Monkey Jesus?" is about a talking chimpanzee who becomes a televangelist. A 30 page excerpt appeared in McSweeney's #11. Makes a great gift! (for anyone who enjoys bizarre literature, that is...)
