When Taters last in the dooryard bloomed

True to their tuber roots (see what I did there?) spring is the time when all true Taters head inside to a dark room to answer trivia questions.

That last part may not be true of potatoes.

Shatterdome Atlanta, a Pacific Rim Convention

There's a significant number of MeFites who love Guillermo del Toro's robots-punchan-monsters film, Pacific Rim. Shatterdome Atlanta is in its second year and is expanding to 2 days -- June 13 and 14. It's a fun little niche con (I'm on staff). We've got some cool prizes and guests, but above all else, we just want to geek out together about this awesome movie. [more inside]

I will be in San Francisco for ALA, and a meetup would be grand. I will propose Monday night (29 June) at 6pm-ish. I will be near Levi's Plaza on the Embarcadero, so something near that would be best for me, but I am open to other options. Any thoughts?

MeFi Sasquan

I think it would be really cool for all MeFites who will be at Sasquan, the 73rd World Science Fiction Convention, to get together. I propose the District Bar on Friday August 21 for early dinner because a) it's a mile walk from the con so we can work up an appetite, b) the menu looks good, and c) I know I'll certainly need a break from the con at that point.

I'm thinking about making the drive from Columbus, OH to this event in July. I've never been to one of these events before so I have no idea as to its quality - any feedback is welcome. I'd be by myself and I'd love to either carpool or meet up with some folks upon arrival. Oh! Info can be found at http://www.socialismconference.org/ Thanks!

Tokyo Meet Up for ovenmitt

Mefite ovenmitt is going to be in Tokyo pretty soon, and mentioned she'd like to stop by my new shop in Omotesando. I've seen a good number of Tokyo Mefites in the last two weeks, but pretty much just one at a time. Maybe we can get together and have a proper meet up? We were mailing back and forth, and Tuesday, April 14th seemed to work best. [more inside]
