Yoni Ki Baat - 10th Anniversary

Yoni Ki Baat, inspired by The Vagina Monologues, presents true stories by and about South Asian women talking about sexuality, gender, and womanhood as it intersects with race and culture. To celebrate 10 years in the Bay Area, this year's production will present selected work from past shows, covering topics from queer desire to infertility, body hair to facial hair, sex on a plane to sex in public, and much more - including a diatribe against Fair and Lovely. There are 2 evening productions on March 22nd and 23rd and a self-identified-women's only matinee on March 23rd. Tix are $15: partial proceeds go towards supporting organisations that help women and girls. [more inside]

Western Mass--game or trivia?

Just moved back to Northampton and I would love to meet some people I didn't attend kindergarten with! I can see that the last meetup in this area was pretty epic--would anyone be up for something more casual, like trivia at Popcorn Noir on 3/5 or 3/12? Or board games at the Roost on those nights? Edit: Popcorn Noir it is, as it is the special International Women's Day edition and we can't miss that!

Portland dining meetup for dim sum

It's been a while since we had a food oriented meet up. I think the last one was when we went to Podnah's for BBQ. Is anyone up for dim sum some night next month? Dim sum is usually eaten in a large group so why not! [more inside]

Suicide's Requiem at The Garage

Suicide's Requiem is a collaborative dance-theater performance created & performed by and about survivors of suicide and mental health issues - whether directly or through a loved one - soundtracked by Mozart's Requiem and personal interviews. Our aim is to educate people about suicide through personal perspectives, and encourage personal and societal healing around mental health. I have been involved with this project since day 1 and have found it profoundly powerful; I would be really honoured to have your presence. [more inside]

taoG ylliB|Billy Goat

On behalf of the Chicago Chapter of the Cabal*, I repudiate the current rumor that there is "a rampant pro-billy goat prejudice" on Metafilter. Mr. quidnunc's allegations are scurrilous, pernicious, libelous, and, what's more, categorically untrue, and I reject them with the utmost strenulosity.

That bit of business concluded, I'm pleased to announce our seventieth or so monthly meetup, to be held on the first Wednesday of March at the famous Billy Goat Tavern! [more inside]

Learn to Curl at High Park Curling Club!

With the Olympics comes people saying "hey, Curling looks strange / fun / silly, how do I try it?" Well, there's only a few months left before the clubs close for the summer, so the time to learn is now. I've rented ice at High Park Curling Club, which gives us two hours of late night practice & play time. Interested? [more inside]

Let's go to China in the Paris of the Piedmont

I've been memailing mediareport about it, and we both agree that we need to have another meetup in March. I was thinking Gourmet Kingdom would be a great option because it's quiet during the week (meaning not quiet on Fri/Sat), it has a challenging/intimidating/exciting/fun Szechuan menu (attn: vegetarians: the braised eggplant is amazing!), and it's in the Chapel Hill/Carrboro part of the triangle, thus satisfying the "our turn" part of the rotation. There's ample parking, and plenty of nearby watering holes for afterwards should we want to maintain conversational momentum like last time in Raleigh. Would any Thursdays in March be bad for anyone? What Thursdays work best for you in March? What Thursdays work worst for you in March? Why wouldn't you want to meet up on a Thursday? What is it about those damned Thursdays? Do you know anybody named Thursday? Are they coming? Would they be embarrassed?

Central Vermont meet-up

Because Shepherd and I have to miss the meet-up on February 15th, how about I create one for April? Slightly warmer month, same place, good times, good company...not bad? Pick a Saturday, any Saturday, and we're there (barring evil kidney stones). I like the idea of Threepenny Taproom as I really want to go there and drink from their beer list. (also, if you are in QC like we are, NH, northern MA, and can find lodging, try to make it out! I'd love to see so many of you!)

Mr. Zarquon goes to Oz (Part 2)

Second leg of my trip, I am going to be in Sydney starting on the 7th and have no current plans setup to do anything over the weekend. Would either a drinkup or an afternoon meetup on the 8th be of interest to anyone? Canceled unless other folks show up.
