Board games at Knight Moves

Would anyone like to meet at Knight Moves in Brookline to play board games? It bills itself as New England's only board game cafe and has a wide selection of games to play. I'm fairly sure it allows customers to bring their own games as well. There's a cover charge of $10 Thursday through Sunday and $5 Monday through Wednesday. What times and dates would work for people? UPDATE: Come to Knight Moves near Coolidge Corner on August 29th at 6:00 PM to play some board games! [more inside]

BlackHat/DefCon

So I'm going to both BlackHat & DefCon this year. Is anybody else or are there locals who want an excuse to hang out? I arrive Aug 3 (Tues) & my last night is Aug 7 (Sat) so it'd have to be between those dates. Also my Thurs night is spoken for. But any other evening I'm open. I can find my way around town so location isn't super important to me. Any takers?

hippybear and wallabear in Seattle pre-Rush concert meetup

So, we're going to be in Seattle for the Rush show on Sunday July 19. Thought it might be nice to meet a few Seattle MeFites before the show. So, let's meet at the 5-Points Cafe at 4pm on Sunday July 19 for hangout and chat and dinner and drinks before the show! It's not a fancy place, but it's fun and relaxing and is walking distance from both our hotel and Key Arena. We'd love to connect with Seattle MeFites!
