Meetup: Ft. Greene, Brooklyn

We narrowed it down to a date! An actual date! And an actual place! And my mind is still reeling that it's a German beer garden (who'd a thunk it?) just down the street from where I used to live back in the 90s! Here's the place. Looking forward to meeting new friends in my old neighborhood that will no doubt seem like a new neighborhood. Prost!

grouse's last night in town

I'm moving to Toronto in just a couple of days! Unfortunately I don't have enough nights left for a dedicated MeFi meetup night but I'm going to try to get together all my friends at Hale's Ales for some local beers. I hope my MeFi friends can make it too! WARNING: you may have to interact with non-MeFites. People might not know who Matt Haughey or Jessamyn are.

It's October Already

Well, it will be October already by next Wednesday. You know the drill: The Original Goat, under Michigan Avenue. Tiny beers, tinier whiskeys, some sort of toy surprise. Then some of us making very bad decisions about how to conduct ourselves in public or when to call it a night. You should be there. You know who you are.

get (sweets/coffee/records/hype!) at Leisure Market!

Hey all-- looks like local record label Innovative Leisure is putting together a very musically-oriented vendor fair, with some great DJs from funk/rare-things maestro Egon to the dubstep dons of Smog (and a rare appearance by the legendary create digger and beat-maker, Madlib). It's happening tomorrow in Downtown. Since I work in the area, I'll probably walk to this thing, so would anyone like to meet up at Semi Sweet Bakery, get their (delicious) version of a cronut and head on over? Schedule of performers follows :) [more inside]

Freeplay at Ground Kontrol

As part of the XOXO festival, MetaFilter is sponsoring an afternoon of gaming at Ground Kontrol, the awesome 80s throwback arcade/bar. All the games will be on freeplay from 2pm to 5pm and the venue will normally be closed to all but XOXO attendees. If you're not lucky enough to be one of the ~500 attendees of XOXO, there should be room for MeFites to enjoy the space as well, just tell the doorman "I'm with the MetaFilter Meetup" to get in without a XOXO pass.

Perth, Western Australia. 25 September @ Frisk

We moved to St Louis! BE OUR FRIENDS

Hi! I just moved to St Louis along with the wonderful mefite known as likeatoaster. We are living in Tower Grove East, and would like to meet you fine people! We're calling this meetup for Wednesday evening, 7 PM, at The Royale (largely because it was bandied about as a potential meetup spot in the last STL IRL thread, though I'm willing to change venues if y'all can make a compelling case for it; I know, like, nothing about this area). Come say hello! Tell us Northeasterners what's rad in this city! Show us pictures of your cats! Teach us the local slang, like how you say "hamburgers" instead of "steamed hams"! Pat our shoulders encouragingly! Okay!

Chip Kelly's first NFL Game + "Tao of Chip Kelly" signing

To celebrate Chip's first real NFL game, McMenamin's Backstage Bar is showing the game against Washington at 3:55pm, after a Q&A and book signing for "The Tao of Chip Kelly" by metafilter's own msalt. I'm hoping to rally enough steady Chip/Eagles fans to convince McMenamin's to regularly show Eagles games all year since they're not on national TV again, except maybe the Thursday night KC game.

Trivia: Gonna Party like it's 5774!

It's once again time to gather for Geeks Who Drink trivia at the Maple Leaf Pub! We have prize winnings to spend, and it's been a while, so let's grab a table (the earlier the better chance of sitting near English Matt. I'm suggesting 6:30) and have a yummy steak and baked potato (served from 7:00) and kick some trivia butt (trivia starts at 8:00).
