Christmas Bowling Party at Imperial Lanes

Imperial Lanes on Rainier Avenue will be open and near empty on Christmas, and, for that matter, New Year's Day. I and some friends will be there on both days. We had a blast at the last bowling meetup we had. All of you at loose ends this Chistmas evening are welcome to join us. And ditto for New Year's Day, as well...

January Goatening

Last night we discussed having the January Goat on the SECOND Wednesday, rather than the first, owing to that being New Year's Day, and owing to Berlin's Bowie Ball on the 2nd. What say you all? You all seem to say the First Wednesday is the First Wednesday and None Shall Encumber its Celebration. So be it. [more inside]

Seattle Solstice Beers and Artisanal Sodas Meet-up!

computech and I will be visiting family in a suburb north of Seattle the next few days and would like to get together with some mefites from the area. We will have a car and are confident making our way around Seattle so are open to suggestions for a nice venue where we can hang out and have a few beers and artisanal sodas and celebrate the Solstice. Saturday 12-21 works best for us, sometime between 5pm - 7pm. Short notice, I know, but we thought we would at least float the idea.

Lounging in Cambridge

I'm co-hosting and DJing a pre-opening party at O Sushi in Cambridge on Harvard Square. This is going to be a weekly event after the new year, and if there are any fellow MeFites interested in swanking it up on Friday nights this will (hope hope!) be a good place to do it without ever having to hail a cab or utter the words "red line."
