FOGcon meetup

FOGcon, a literary sf convention, is happening on March 6-8 in Walnut Creek. This year's theme is The Traveller. "From The Odyssey to Dr. Who, Margery Kempe to Alyx, the Traveler is an iconic figure. This trope evokes a whole class of stories in both SF and fantasy in a compact and emotionally suggestive form....We will explore such topics as modes of travel, evolving attitudes toward the idea of an alien realm, the range of metaphors travel stands for, changing expectations about the experience of earthly or space travel, and how to be an extreme wilderness hiker - or an extreme hitchhiker. And lots more. Honored Guests: Kim Stanley Robinson, Catherynne M. Valente, Joanna Russ (posthumous)." [more inside]

Star Trek, TNG Happy Hour, Round 26, Version 2.0

After last week's tribute to Nimoy (is there something in my eye?) we're back on track with "The Measure of a Man", said to be the first truly great episode of ST:TNG, where our heroes grapple with the question of Data's personhood. Plus, weird blue drinks as usual. [more inside]

Walnut Creek Corners Tavern Big Swanky Restaurant/Bar Meetup

I'd like to hold a meetup at Corners Tavern in Walnut Creek. This is an upscale, "swanky" venue, but also whimsical with a sense of humor, and only semi-formal, as I see it. It's situated in Broadway Plaza near Macy's and is easy to find. About 20-30 minute walk from BART, depending on what lights you get. What say you? [more inside]

Shall we play a game(haus)?

I had a great time at the last Game Night, but the only problem is we all had so much to talk about we never got around to the game part before it was time to go! [more inside]

New to Portland, OR

Um, hi. I've been in Portland for two months now and will probably be staying here. I'm taking a javascript course at Portland Code School and I don't know anyone here besides my classmates. I live in the Pearl District right now and am looking to meet people to hang out with, drink beer with and just generally do stuff with. I love local lore, local adventures and meeting new people. Want to meet up?

Delicious Foodstuffs Tour of DC Begins with Fish in the Hood

The winner of our food poll is Fish in the Hood, located in Park View, DC. (Easy walk from Georgia Ave-Petworth Metro.) (Also, potentially, in the 'hood?) I'm going to go ahead and simplify this process and pick out a date myself: Saturday, March 14, 2015 at 7:00 PM. It's near some great bars so a Saturday night should be pretty ideal for anyone who wants a night out on the town. Hope to see you all there! [more inside]

She's Beautiful When She's Angry at the Music Box

She's Beautiful When She's Angry, a 2014 documentary of the modern women's movement in the US is playing at the Music Box either from March 13 to 15 or March 13 to 19 (The Music Box only has showtimes for the weekend, but the film's website says "One week only!"). In any event, I'm going to the Sunday Matinee, if anyone is interested in joining me. We can saunter to a nearby bar afterward. Screening is at 2:30, but I've set the time for 2:00pm, cause I'm picky about my movie seating. [more inside]

Movement Festival Detroit

I'm going to this year's Movement, May 23 - 25, in Detroit, MI. If any other MeFites are planning to attend for all or part of the festival, perhaps we could have a meetup to discuss our love of, e.g., techno? I'm open to suggestions, but I think a recuperative brunch of some sort might be nice. People do allegedly have to eat and drink at some point, right?
