I'm going to be speaking at the Open Hardware Summit at the New York Hall of Science on the 15th, and leaving the 18th. I miss the hell out of you New Yorkers and I'd love to meet the NYC Mefi crew. Let's get drinks and be loud and stay out late. Or let's get drinks and be tame and sit around in parks. Or whatever. [more inside]

Is it really a hell of a town?

Thanks to the answers to my AskMe question, I will be floating around NYC from 9/2 through 9/4 with no firm plans on what to do. I will be staying in Brooklyn (Bushwick, wherever that may be) but I can go wherever the subway/train/bus will take me. Does anyone want to meet up for dinner or some other sort of hanging out?

Home Sweet Home

Hey y'all, I'm going to be home in Alabama in a couple weeks. I'm going on a retreat in Birmingham from Friday evening the 26th to Sunday afternoon the 28th. I'd love to have a meetup there for a late lunch Friday or for dinner on Sunday. Any takers? (And FYI, I'm vegetarian, so if you propose a barbecue place, at least make sure it has baked potatoes or some such on hand.)

Pub Trivia: Atlas Chugged

It'll be another packed house at the Maple Leaf Pub as Team MeFi takes on all trivia challengers, and tackles the steak and baked potato dinner and awesome cheese-stuffed jalapeños. Trivia's at 8, but the house has been so stuffed lately, we need to start arriving earlier to stake out a table, so I've set the start time for 7. Be there or be a regular quadrilateral!

Team MeFi Trivia?

Update: Tuesday's trivia is on at the Cruzroom, but we are still trying to find the best "everyone can make it" night / location.

My friend is behind ShanRock's Triviology and I just had a chance to compete last night at the Cruzroom off Alberta. Which has led me to the conclusion that we might want to try and put together our own Trivia team (or Teams) and compete. Would be a good excuse for a weekly outing.

August/September Austin meetup

It's time for Austin folks to beat the heat in some indoor, air-conditioned venue like the Dog & Duck on a weekend afternoon. I'm looking at the weekend of the 27th/28th, although I could be convinced to do Sunday the 21st or maybe the first weekend in September. Venue suggestions other than the Dog & Duck welcome, as well as date requests. ETA: After discussion in the comments, we have a meetup at the Dog & Duck on Sunday August 28 at 2 pm. See you there, Austin folks!

Last time, we came away with first and second place, which means that we have a $50 bar tab this time. That's a lot of cheese-stuffed jalapeños, y'all. The more the merrier! If we field three teams, do we think we can land ALL the top honors? [more inside]
