Movies at the Brattle on Sunday?
The Brattle Theater has a really good set of movies coming up this Sunday, 2014/9/14: Sunset Boulevard at 1:00, Chinatown at 3:15 (these two can be seen as a double feature), Los Angeles Plays Itself at 6:00, and Repo Man at 9:30. Does anyone want to go see any of these movies in particular? I saw that Los Angeles Plays Itself was scheduled and was primarily interested in that, but I'd be happy seeing any of these, really. If you want to go, leave a comment saying what movie you'd like to see! EDIT: We're seeing Los Angeles Plays Itself at 6:00 on Sunday. See you all there!

DC summer board and card games meetup
I'm not saying you should wear your straw boater after Labor Day, but I am saying that summer doesn't actually end until autumn starts, so we've still got a few weeks to squeeze in a summer gaming meetup. [more inside]

Do you have what it takes to go head to head with some of the best drunken spellers in the Bay Area? Still chasing the glory of the coveted Scripps Howard Award? Still fuming after losing to that skank Erin Wilson in the 4th grade over the word 'crysthanamum' and want revenge? Come to Buzzed Bee and win the glory [more inside]

Lunch on the 7th, Brooklyn?
Hello, MetaFilter! I'll be popping by Brooklyn from the 6th to the 11th of this month, and I wonder if anyone would care for a quick lunch meet-up (let's say on Sunday the 7th) with me, Mrs quidnunc and the quidnunc baby (him name: quark). Somewhere nice in Williamsburg or thereabouts may be easiest, and a pub is always an option if drunch is better than lunch. Or an afternoon cocktail or tea party, or whatever. Or feel free to tell me where to go, either literally or figuratively. [more inside]
