Pub Trivia in Redwood City

Pub Trivia! Freewheel Brewing Company in Redwood City. Hosted by MeFi’s own Space Coyote. Next Monday, or maybe a different one? (That is, not this coming Monday, but next Monday: February 1.) FEBRUARY 1 IT IS DECIDED. Maybe many? Just not the third Monday of the month, since then it won’t be hosted by MeFi’s own Space Coyote. (Previously) It can be done, but only we can do it. If we want to. Which I do! So let’s. Anyone interested?

Lamb skewers and dim sum?

Feng Mao Lamb Kebab looks like the type of place that would really be best experienced in a large group. Never been there, but best as I can tell it's a place where you order dim sum to be delivered to the table to eat, while you roast lamb (and other) kebabs over little charcoal troughs. Anyone interested or am I going to have to do this alone? [more inside]

Trivia at Vinyl Wine Bar

My GF and I will be heading over to Vinyl Coffee & Wine Bar on Tuesday to give their trivia a try. We've never been before, so our knowledge comes exclusively from the fact that they advertise having trivia and this old SF Gate article. If this sounds like your bag, swing by & join the team! It ostensibly starts at eight, and ends at ten.

Galaxy Quest at the New Parkway

I'm a fan of Galaxy Quest, which is showing at Oakland's New Parkway at 9:30 pm on Thursday, August 13. Would anyone like to join me at 8:30 pm for a drink before the showing? The New Parkway has sofas, booze, food, and a great community vibe. It's within walking distance of the 19th Street Bart station in Oakland and a variety of buses so you don't need a car to get there--and you get a discount if you ride your bike. ("Patrons entering the theater carrying a bike helmet will receive a $1 discount.")

Georgian Soup Dumplings and All The Games

Citizens! I have a sudden and incontrovertibly ingenious plan, inspired by a Jonathan Gold review on KCRW of the Tumanyan Khinkali Factory, describing the khinkali as a "near peak soup dumpling experience." Given that this is in Glendale, and thus in vague proximity (2ish miles) to MeFite favorite GameHaus Cafe (previously and previouslier)...well, you can imagine my excitement! [more inside]

Post ALA Meetup

I will be in San Francisco for ALA, and a meetup would be grand. I will propose Monday night (29 June) at 6pm-ish. I will be near Levi's Plaza on the Embarcadero, so something near that would be best for me, but I am open to other options. Any thoughts?
