Seattle Trivia

Ok, we are all back from college for Thanksgiving, sleeping on an air mattress in our father's den surrounded by Bill Cosby books on fatherhood and Ronald Reagan posters. You can't find decent whiskey at home, so come join the Seattle MeFi juggernaut Manifest Destiny's Child for the usual evening of Pub Quiz Trivia to the Death at the George and Dragon. [more inside]

Gathering in NYC

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]

Board Game Meetup?

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.

I'm bad with planning meetups but we should have one.

It's finally fall, so why not celebrate with a meetup!? I was thinking McKenna's pub on west 14th would be good. Thursday the 16th at 6pm. I was also thinking about making a biweekly Saturday meetup if anyone's interested. Suggestions for a venue for that are welcome too.

First Friday in Richmond VA

Drinks, food and art. I will be in Richmond for First Friday and want to explore the heck out of it on foot. Lemaire at the Jefferson Hotel has fancy happy hour in the bar from 4 to 7 pm. Appetizers 3 for $20, wine and drink specials. The Lantern Parade starts at 7 pm. There are light sculptures around the Arts District. If there's later night blues music that would be even more swell. Come wander with me. [more inside]

Providence Drinks And Or Food?

Work will bring me to your fair town on October 24th and 25th. Having never been before, I would enjoy finding a fun place to drink the delicious beer of your land on Wednesday October 25th. I'm not precisely sure when I'll be done for the day, so a late-dinner may also be in the cards, depending on the timing...I'm thinking somewhere around 7-8pm? I'm staying at the Omni and enjoy walking but can grab a cab or whatever also.

There's no place like Haus for the holidays!

Lets get together for board and card games! With the holidays fast approaching, do people want to try for another Game Haus IRL before 2018? No experience necessary! Game Haus is a laughter-filled place in Glendale that has over 10,000 games, from strategic board games to party games like Pictionary. We usually get a mix of experienced players to help guide us and people like me, who have never played most of the games, and everyone is really patient. It's always a great time. Plus, they love us!

Public Talk and/or Beer

I'm giving a public lecture on NW Coast Archaeology at the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (OMSI) on October 3rd at 7.45 (This link says 7.00 but there is an AGM first, I think). It's free and open to the public. If you come, be sure to say hi. I'm also in Portland the next day (October 4) and if anyone was interested in meeting for an after-work beer that would be fun - but I'm staying near Gladstone/Jennings Lodge so don't know how feasible that is, I don't know Portland at all.

Chuy's for the cheese

Research Monkey set me up for this, and we haven't had a meetup since ignignokt and metroid_baby visited, so let's see if we can do it. Lunch or dinner at the Chuy's in Cary (or Apex, or Morrisville, who can really tell these days?) at the shopping megacomplex off US-55 and US-540. As incentive: I have a coupon for a free, uh, serving thingy of queso. Not sure if it's still good since it's over a year old and kind of beaten up from riding in my wallet the whole time, but let's try it anyway. [more inside]
