Philly MeFite Social

I haven't seen any meetups proposed for Philadelphia, so I'm wondering if there is an active enough contingent there to warrant putting one together. Philly MeFites, are you there?

I'll be in Hong Kong doing research through the end of July, and I'd love to meet a few HK-based Mefites. Would folks be up for getting together--I'm thinking an inexpensive noodle shop for dinner, then/or an earlyish drink--sometime in the next few weeks? [more inside]

East Bay Work Buddies

I am an underemployed person looking to get more structure in my life. Wondering if there are fellow underemployed or self-employed MeFites who might want to meet in a common space periodically and go about their business (or pleasure) in the excellent company of one another in the East Bay area (Oakland, Berkeley, Albany, El Cerrito).

Worldcon Meetup?

Worldcon is in Helsinki this year (http://www.worldcon.fi) and I'm bringing resident 11 year old. Dates are 9-13 August though I think we are arriving on the 8th. Anyone else planning to be there? I've been to 2 Worldcons before and generally the problem I've found is I have no problem talking to new people but meeting up with people I already know can be difficult if we haven't made concrete plans as Worldcon is just so big. While I am all about the sitting and drinking, that probably won't be very 11 yo friendly so I am open to other suggestions - maybe a picnic or walk near the convention centre? Or an evening meal?
