An Opportunity To Buy Me Drinks

From June 4-7 elizard and I will be visiting New Orleans. We're staying at the Maison Dupuy in the Vieux Carr. Our only plans are to eat, drink, and hear music. You, local Nawlins Mefite, are an important part of that plan. Get us away from the horrors of tourist traps and into the friendly local bars. Steer us from overpriced, overhyped restaurants and into the good little holes-in-the-wall. Fill us with booze and watch us go!

Meetup à Paris?

Hey all, I'm in Paris until Wednesday morning (the 30th), and having never been here before, it's a bit overwhelming! Anyone in town feel like getting together for a bite to eat or something to drink over the next two days? I'm staying near Ménilmontant, but I'm willing to travel, especially if you have suggestions for places to go!

Me, Live at the Spice of Life in London's West End

Me being Grangousier. (That's my MeFi superhero name, my real name is John Peacock). And this being a gesture in the general direction of promoting said bout of self-expression in the general direction of anyone who might have met me at a previous MeFi piss-up social event and consequently be interested or curious or such. I'll be playing a half-hour set at 20:00 in the basement of The Spice of Life, right in the heart of London's West End, next door to Singing in the Rain. It's free to get in, which is important in these days of reduced access to coinage. [more inside]

Good Mefites of London: last year when I visited London, and only gave myself three days, I said "I should come back next year and stay a bit longer." This year, I am indeed doing that (from 27 May to 2 June); it has been proposed we start with cocktails here, and then a meal after. [more inside]

Solar eclipse viewing for Exploratorium members and friends

Do we have enough astronomy buffs and Exploratorium members to enjoy the partial solar eclipse on the evening of Sunday, May 20th at the Members Appreciation Night shindig? Members can usually bring guests (depending on the level of membership), so buddying up with a member would work for those who aren't members themselves. [more inside]
