Tues. Feb. 24th: U/V St. & 9th St. NW, pre-Sleater-Kinney.

Sleater-Kinney is playing the 9:30 Club, so I am being lured to the Potomac. Would anyone like to meet up beforehand? Sleater-Kinney attendance not required (and anyhow the show is sold out). Venue: your choice: the Satellite Room or the Brixton? I have never actually met a MeFite but understand it involves beans on a plate. [more inside]

London II: Jessamyn and Her Sister Want to Have Dinner with You

I'm back in town with my sister, staying in an AirBnB place in Surrey Quays/Rotherhithe. Would love to meet up for dinner/drinks on Thursday. Doesn't have to be right near here but would be nice if it was easily public transportationable from here. Who is in and can suggest a place? [more inside]

Movement Festival Detroit

I'm going to this year's Movement, May 23 - 25, in Detroit, MI. If any other MeFites are planning to attend for all or part of the festival, perhaps we could have a meetup to discuss our love of, e.g., techno? I'm open to suggestions, but I think a recuperative brunch of some sort might be nice. People do allegedly have to eat and drink at some point, right?

She's Beautiful When She's Angry at the Music Box

She's Beautiful When She's Angry, a 2014 documentary of the modern women's movement in the US is playing at the Music Box either from March 13 to 15 or March 13 to 19 (The Music Box only has showtimes for the weekend, but the film's website says "One week only!"). In any event, I'm going to the Sunday Matinee, if anyone is interested in joining me. We can saunter to a nearby bar afterward. Screening is at 2:30, but I've set the time for 2:00pm, cause I'm picky about my movie seating. [more inside]

Ottawa weekends in March

I am taking a course in Ottawa every Saturday afternoon in March. Any local-area mefites want to go for dinner afterwards one of those times? (Not a bar; I would like at least the option of driving home that evening.)

Delicious Foodstuffs Tour of DC Begins with Fish in the Hood

The winner of our food poll is Fish in the Hood, located in Park View, DC. (Easy walk from Georgia Ave-Petworth Metro.) (Also, potentially, in the 'hood?) I'm going to go ahead and simplify this process and pick out a date myself: Saturday, March 14, 2015 at 7:00 PM. It's near some great bars so a Saturday night should be pretty ideal for anyone who wants a night out on the town. Hope to see you all there! [more inside]

Walnut Creek Corners Tavern Big Swanky Restaurant/Bar Meetup

I'd like to hold a meetup at Corners Tavern in Walnut Creek. This is an upscale, "swanky" venue, but also whimsical with a sense of humor, and only semi-formal, as I see it. It's situated in Broadway Plaza near Macy's and is easy to find. About 20-30 minute walk from BART, depending on what lights you get. What say you? [more inside]
