Durham Bulls Game Meetup

Let's plan a meetup at a Durham Bulls game for some time in May or June [May 4, Star Wars Night]. It's minor-league baseball, so the prices are low: The most expensive tickets are $30 (our will be in the $10 range), real pints of local craft beers are $5-7, and most concession food is in the $1-5 range. At the same time, the team is AAA, meaning the players are good enough to be only one step away from the Major Leagues, as demonstrated in detail in that great documentary film Bull Durham. Scheduling and booking details inside. [more inside]

Portland Visit

Howdy! I'll be in Portland on business and would be up for a meet-up in April. I'm arriving on 13th, but very late. But I'll be there until the morning of the 16th, which means I'll probably be available on the evening of the 14th or 15th. Anyone interested in having a beverage or two with an east coast Mefite? I'll have a car, so I'm flexible on venue. LMK, thanks!

The Penderel's Oak is a pub(wetherspoons) in the centre that I know is nice and big - would anyone like to have a london mefi meetup there next month? Edit: OK, 5th of April Then, I will bring a sign with a mefi logo on it and will be there from 7 till whenever. Please bring games if you have them. :)

I am new to Halifax - would you like to meet for wine Sat. May 24 at 7pm?

Hello :D I recently moved to Halifax and would like to get to know more people. Would anyone wish to join me for a drink (or six) at Obladee Wine bar on Saturday May 24 at 7pm? I have a friendly, outgoing nature, and look forward to seeing you there! I will book a table if anyone responds, otherwise I will loiter at the bar having a drunken good time and chanting TEKELI-LI earnestly until someone manifests, or 8pm, whichever is most convenient :D. Details of my unwholesome garb (so that you may recognize me) will follow closer to the date. [more inside]
