How about a St Pete/Tampa meetup

I am interested in getting an active group of mefis socializing in real live 3D in the TSP area. I'm personally located in the far west of St Pete, so between there and tampa, downtown St. Pete or perhaps the international mall area would be good halfway points for many of us. any interest in a gathering of like minded individuals? and cat videos. lots of cat videos.

Return of the Revenge of the Son of Trivia II: The Sequel

What's up with us? Trivia twice in two months? I have been remiss in posting trivia night here lately, so y'all come join us for Geeks Who Drink trivia at Sherlock's Baker Street Pub in Rice Village. Trivia starts at 7. Plan to be there early (I hope to grab a table or two around 6:15) because the college kids are back in town. We will also have an out-of-town ringer join us (thanks Momapotamus!) Also just realized it's Yom Kippur till sunset that day. If you can't make it, g'mar hatimah tovah, and have an easy fast!
