I am taking a long trip down the west coast before nursing school eats me alive and locks me in Philly for a year. First stop: Seattle, from April 14th-20th!

Tokyo Meet Up for ovenmitt

Mefite ovenmitt is going to be in Tokyo pretty soon, and mentioned she'd like to stop by my new shop in Omotesando. I've seen a good number of Tokyo Mefites in the last two weeks, but pretty much just one at a time. Maybe we can get together and have a proper meet up? We were mailing back and forth, and Tuesday, April 14th seemed to work best. [more inside]

On Sunday, April 12, 2015, me and my little family will be on our way home from Spring Break in Austin and we'd like to see the Houston Crew on the way. We'll be hitting your city around 10:30. Where's a good place we can get together and eat eggs and pancakes and maybe other brunchy stuff? Looks like it will be 11am on Sunday at Beaver's in Houston.

Intro to Poker Class

HI friends! I'm teaching an Intro to Poker Class at the very adorable skill share place QED in Astoria next week. The class is $20 which gets you 1 unforgettable hour of extremely useful and fun instruction on both how to play better poker (with a side order of basic statistics) and how to not look like a rube while playing, plus an entry into a free tournament to commence right after the class, at which you could win a fabulous prize (probably a poker book, I don't actually know). Here is a link to the venue. Please ignore the part that says I am a professional player. I was just bluffing when I wrote that. Ha ha. Anyway if you want $5 off the price let me know and I'll send you a discount code. Or just show up and let me know you're from metafilter and I'll buy you a beer.

An Irish wake for Terry Pratchett

A meetup in the memory of Terry Pratchett. It was great going through his obit thread the other day. Terry's books influenced me a lot and helped me think about so many things in so many new ways. And I think, it would be a good idea to get together to give Terry a hearty, joyous send off. We could all come together, assume names from list of characters from his writings, may be even dress like some of them and discuss, drink and celebrate life, his and our own. [more inside]

Easter Dinner at RMH

Let's go to the Ronald McDonald house in Hyde Park and make Easter dinner for the families of sick kids. We've done this a couple times before. Dinner time is targeted at 5:00 pm, so plan accordingly as to when to show up. I'm planning on getting there around 3:00 to help everyone out and start working on whatever concoction I'm making...probably a lentil based stew dish. The Hyde Park house asks that we don't bring more than 12 volunteers, but I don't expect that's a problem. The house has 98% of the utensils and tools you need for cooking, we just need people to a) volunteer to be head chef for a dinner dish or b) volunteer to be sous chef for any / all of the head chefs. A variety of dishes that can get around a variety of tastes, allergies, and dietary restrictions is preferred by us, though the house is just happy for us to show up. We're typically cooking for 25 guests + us, and they'd prefer us to err on the side of leftovers if we can. We've rarely had issues with that though.
