My Perambulations Bring Me Back to MPLS/SPL

Let us try and finalize this meetup. I am suggesting Thursday, 30 May and Common Roots on Lyndale and 26th. I realize we have a Wednesday/Thursday split, but Thursday ended up looking best for me. Any further thoughts?

Food? Drinks? Karaoke?

CBUS and other Ohio residents: as of early June, I'll have left for a year in the rain forest where I will likely be without internet access. It'd be fun to see you all again before I disappear! Want to grab food some weeknight in May? I was going to suggest Blue Nile, but that has apparently closed. We could try for another North Market late afternoon, or maybe the Jury Room? Or something else entirely? (I see, for example, that Dirty Frank's has the best karaoke in Columbus...)

I want to be a part of it

Hey, NYC. Mr. Mustachio and I will be there from May 6th - May 12th and I would very much like to meet you, because you are some of my favorites and are clearly awesome. We're totally on vacation, so the time is flexible, and the place, to a certain extent, though we will be transit dependent. Also, we are very good at getting lost, so we might need help finding you. a big meetup would be fun, but if anyone wants to take us on a field trip or two, that would be fun, too.

Criterion Sundays: French Cancan

This week's film: Jean Renoir's FRENCH CANCAN ("a Technicolor tour de force by a master of modern cinema"). Trailer. Charles Silver, curator of film at MoMA: "If someone asked me to recommend two or three essential or seminal Chaplin or Ford films, I would be less hesitant than I would be with Renoir, whose thoughts and feelings seem universal, and whose films seem to encompass virtually all that is Cinema—and life itself."

Higgins armory celebration

I was really excited about the idea of having a Higgins Armory meetup, but having never arranged a meetup before and also being a bit remote from the Armory (and not superfamiliar with how a meetup could happen with it), I would require some guidance in arranging one. Also, it was several other people's ideas in the Higgins Armory thread, so I don't want to pretend like I came up with this myself... [more inside]
