Bye Bye Lutoslawski

So Lutoslawski's leaving town to go do something kind of awesome. He's leaving some time around 6 October or so. I think we should have a beer or four or more to send him on his way.

Michigan Metafilter Meetup! Arbor Brewing Company! Not to Miss!

It just so happens that a certain Genuine Metafilter Moderator, who is known to appear at libraries, will be appearing at the Ann Arbor Library Sunday afternoon, and a Meetup afterwards would be a good time for all involved.

Bar Harbor (or should I say 'harbour'?) Meetup

Altolinguistic and her husband are flying across the Atlantic soon and will be visiting me on Mount Desert Island. A quick perusal reveals that there are a number of mefites in the area, so I thought a Down East meetup would be in order. They'll be in town most of next week, and besides a how-to-eat-lobster indoctrination nothing else is on the docket, so we're flexible as to where and when. I am away from email until Sunday (hopefully I'll be atop Katahdin in a few days) but maybe others could chime in with date and location suggestions. We live in Somesville but are open to going anywhere on the island.
