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]

Disneyland Meetup?

Going to Disneyland is mostly about having a great capacity to stand in lines. Standing in line with people that would be really interesting to talk to sounds like a win to me. Standing in line with beer in California Adventure land with interesting people would be....magical. [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?

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]

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]

East Bay Beer Tasting.

So, I made some beer, it turned out good, and I like to share. I'm calling it TCP-IPA, and the recipe is here. Thing is, I don't get out that much, at least close to home, so I don't know a good venue for this kind of thing. I was thinking of asking Øl in Walnut Creek if I could bring some of my own - but I'd be open to other suggestions of a good place and time (in January) UPDATE: Got a place. Details inside
