Suicide's Requiem at The Garage
Suicide's Requiem is a collaborative dance-theater performance created & performed by and about survivors of suicide and mental health issues - whether directly or through a loved one - soundtracked by Mozart's Requiem and personal interviews. Our aim is to educate people about suicide through personal perspectives, and encourage personal and societal healing around mental health. I have been involved with this project since day 1 and have found it profoundly powerful; I would be really honoured to have your presence. [more inside]

Cheese and Booze in the OC
After the LA meetup recently I have decided to have another go at organizing an OC/South LA meetup. And what's better for a meet up than cheese! I want to try Knafeh (A near eastern cheese pastry, deep fried with syrup and covered with pistachios) and Anaheim's Knafeh Cafe seems like a good place to give it a shot. I figure we could start off these for cheese and hit some nearby bar for drinks after. Let me know if metafilter is interested before I hit the place on my lonesome. Ok, the place is listed above, and we're on for February 9th, at 5 PM at 2941 W Ball Rd Anaheim, CA 92804! Hope to see you all there!

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]

CA - Bay Area Board/Card/RolePlay Gaming
Surely there are more than a few board gaming, card dealing, and role playing MeFites out there. Let's organize a meetup for mid-May. The afternoon of Sunday May 19th. The location is set to Mountain View but we can change that easily. If you are interested hop in the thread. If you don't like the date/time give suggestions for alternatives. Location will vary depending on the number of people. For groups < 12 I can host at my house in South Bay. If we grow larger we'll find a venue. I have access to some largish areas for up to 30 players. Games to play can be sorted out later.
