Next Two Weeks
Would anyone be interested in meeting up and playing some board games? We can meet at Emerald Tavern or Vigilante. I don't have any specific dates in mind. Just wanted to throw the idea out and see if there's any interests. Update: I went ahead and set a time and place. Open to change if ppl prefer something else.
Socialize With The Socialists! Holiday Party and concert featuring dreamwave band Sounds Of Ceres (music video) and decor by yours truly in the legendary (underground but actually above ground ) music venue. 8pm-12. 20$ suggested. Quieter bar area available, brief speeches by local DSA politicians, and lots of merch and camaraderie. Facebook. Pre-Order tickets on Eventbrite
ATTENTION POOR MEFITES: YOU ARE ALSO WELCOME. DONATIONS ARE OPTIONAL I am leaving the country. Literally. I am having MeFite-Only Moving Sale. In honour of MetaFilter's own jessamyn, all proceeds go to Food Not Bombs. This is a name-your-own-price event. I've got everything from household goods, to books, to vintage clothes, to ephemera, to wacky curiosities, to baby stuff, etc. [more inside]
More Than Two Weeks Out
The wonderful starlybri was kind enough to organize a recent NYC meet up, and some of us got to talking about how they used to happen more frequently in the city. So overhauser has kindly secured a spot at Lucky's in the East Village for us to gather on Saturday, December 9. The time will be 2-6pm. There will be cheap drinks, and we'd like to do this pot luck style with food! [more inside]
Apparently some people didn't get enough advance notice for Bacon Bomb V, so for the next outing we're tying it directly to Daylight Saving Time so no one will forget: Daylight Saving Time -> Sun -> Hot -> Bacon -> Bacon Bomb VI [more inside]
Fun Stats: United States has had 2175 meetups, 336 performances, 54 presentations, 105 exhibitions, and 81 etc. events.
