Sydney, NSW

I'm an American in Newcastle for a few weeks (until May 12), with not much to do except work, during the day. So, I was thinking if anyone was bored and wanted to meet up, it might be fun. Dinner or drinks, maybe? Or perhaps something next weekend (May 5/6)? [more inside]

So, last year, we tried to have a WisCon meetup, and it didn't come off as cleanly as hoped. So I am going to get the ball rolling. WisCon is 25-28 May 2012. The last day is Memorial Day, and not so great for a meetup, so that leaves 25-27. My suggestions for a venue are: [more inside]

PDX harvest fest/potluck

I know several of us grow vegetable gardens. Is there any interest in an autumnal harvest-themed food meetup? Not sure what the best month would be; wouldn't necessarily have to be at the very end of autumn. Take some foodstuffs you've grown and either bring it raw or as (part of) a dish of some kind.

Bowling at Imperial Lanes

I have spent the evenings of Christmas Day, New Year's Day and a number of Sundays since bowling with a friend at Imperial Lanes in Rainier Valley. We have had a wonderful time every time. Experience strongly suggests a meetup there on another Sunday evening would work out fine. Especially since this time it seems fairly likely that it will not be snowing.

So, I thought I would submit the place -- again -- for a bowling meetup on April 15th. [more inside]
