Popcorn, Pubs, and having cool Parties

Well hello there, New York! I will be where you are pretty soon! I would like to meet (up with) some New York People, and I have heard that many of them like beer. We'll see if that's true, at the 4th Ave Pub on Sunday the 6th of September at 3pm.

4th Ave Pub has an excellent beer selection, and free popcorn, and teeny tiny little beer steins. I love them, and I love mefites. The two together in one place...is this a dream...?

Szechuan in September

DC MeFi goes to "the best Chinese restaurant Washington, DC has had, ever". Going with September 19th since it looked like weekends were a good bet and some folks wanted something later in the month.

Trivia at Vinyl Wine Bar

My GF and I will be heading over to Vinyl Coffee & Wine Bar on Tuesday to give their trivia a try. We've never been before, so our knowledge comes exclusively from the fact that they advertise having trivia and this old SF Gate article. If this sounds like your bag, swing by & join the team! It ostensibly starts at eight, and ends at ten.

DragonCon 2015 Missed Connections Thread / Meetup Coordination

Labor Day weekend is almost upon us again, and that means DragonCon in Atlanta. (Please don't call it Dragon*Con, they had their *-hole removed two years ago at no small expense.) Even though an actual organized MeFi meetup is not likely to survive everyone's various convention plans, we can at least use this thread to talk about those plans. NOTE: like last year, the time and place listed are for the registration line, the event itself lasts Thursday-Monday, and is spread across 5 high-rise hotels and a nearby convention center.

And Through Strange Eons, Even Meetups May Happen

So, Necronomicon is coming up again next week, and we managed a small meet up at the Trinity Brewhouse near the Biltmore hotel. I suggest we tryu and repeat the experience. It seems like Sunday, 23 August, around 5:30pm would let everyone attend all of the convention and still make the meet up. Any thoughts?

Need 1-2 players for a roleplaying game - novices welcome!

Have you seen the numerous posts on the blue and the green praising roleplaying games and want to give them a try? Or are you an experienced gamer looking for a group? If so, I am looking for 1-2 players to join my Pathfinder campaign. Our emphasis is on roleplaying over combat though there is certainly some of that too. No experience in Pathfinder or other RPGs necessary. Campaign blurb & logistics beneath the fold [more inside]

Galaxy Quest at the New Parkway

I'm a fan of Galaxy Quest, which is showing at Oakland's New Parkway at 9:30 pm on Thursday, August 13. Would anyone like to join me at 8:30 pm for a drink before the showing? The New Parkway has sofas, booze, food, and a great community vibe. It's within walking distance of the 19th Street Bart station in Oakland and a variety of buses so you don't need a car to get there--and you get a discount if you ride your bike. ("Patrons entering the theater carrying a bike helmet will receive a $1 discount.")

Visiting Tokyo!

Hello lovely Mefites of Tokyo! I will be visiting your amazing city for the first time and I would love to meet you. I will be staying in a hotel in the Ueno neighborhood, but I will happily go to anywhere you suggest. I'm hoping to see some unique Tokyo nightlife. I was thinking the night of August 13th would be best. I land on the 12th and I fear I may be a bit jet lagged that day.
