Hey There's a First Wednesday Approaching

Join us after work at the original World Famous Billy Goat Tavern for tiny beers and food from the greasy grill. We're fun! We're friendly! Frankly. we're fantastic. Later in the evening, we'll meander over to Livewire Lounge for First Wednesday Karaoke with the incomparable Mary Mac. That's when you'll see how fantastic we truly are. There might be shenanigans in between. You can never be too sure.

Brews and Board games in September?

I'm not married to this event, but it does sound fun! This happens at the Windup Space once a month. I haven't played many board games but I know it's a popular thing to do around MeFi. I haven't seen any Baltimore meetups since I've been here, so figured why not! [more inside]

Anybody going to the Smoke Farm Symposium?

The Smoke Farm Symposium (think left-inclined TED talks in a barn, followed by a tasty communal dinner) is on Saturday in Arlington, WA. This seems up MetaFilter's alley and I'll be surprised if no one else here is attending. I decided at the last minute to go by myself. Anybody else planning to be there?
