Octoberfest Dachshund Racing in Huntington Beach
Every Sunday in October, Old World Village in Huntington Beach, puts on the sport of kings: Dachshund Racing! The races run from 3 PM to 4 PM. I propose Metafilters from far and near meet up at around 1 PM for sausages and beer. We'll carefully discuss the merits of the fine wiener dog athletes and then cheer them on. I'm not exactly sure, but I think the entry fees total out to $2. [more inside]

Tempe Meetup?
I am in Tempe, AZ from now until October 13 (when I leave for Copenhagen). It'd be great to meet up with some of you local Arizonans before then! Best dates for me are September 15-October 12. Is there anything fun to meet up at in late September or early October?

Meetup for MeFites with Mini Mefites?
I've been really out of the MetaFilter loop and would like to fall back in again. There must be some MeFites still here in Philly and I would love to hang out with them. My wife and I have a rambunctious almost 3 year old and it would be nice to bring him along too, so ideally a place that is kid-friendly would be great. [more inside]

ASSSSCAT: Upright Citizen's Brigade improv show at the UCB Theatre
There are lots of great shows every week at UCB, but the logistics of a UCB meet-up are complicated: post-work traffic is a problem, especially for earlier shows; there are no physical tickets; people may be reluctant to buy tickets a few weeks out; and many of the most popular shows sell out almost immediately so proposing a meet-up once the monthly schedule is announced may well be too late. ASSSSCAT is perfect because we can choose a date at our convenience, the show is free, it's on a Sunday, which has been a good day for meet-ups, and it's not too late for a school night.
  • WHAT: ASSSSCAT, one of the best-known improv groups.
  • WHERE: UCB Theatre, Hollywood
  • WHEN: Sundays, 7:30*
  • COST: Free!
*Show starts at 7:30, and I think people start lining up around 6:30. [more inside]

Meetup ideas for an august August?
Since the Getty Center IRL has yet to lock in a date for August; I'm going to un-RSVP to make the 10th more available so I thought we could try brainstorming some other ideas for the other upcoming weekends here. A few people are interested in catching a Dodgers game, and I've brought up going to catch the free UCB improv ASSSSCAT, which is free on Sundays. There's also rescheduling Ethiopian Food, and lots of other Art/Food crawl options. Any other ideas?

Ok fine. We need to step up with the meeting up this month. There's an anniversary to celebrate! Here are my proposals, and we can start a round of negotiations, counter-proposals, wild-eyed propositions, grumpy disagreements, and in the end some more scandalous stories to share. I'll spin off any of these that get support into its own IRL post for easier rsvp'ing. [more inside]

Any Beijingers keen to meet up this week?
Hi everyone, I'm in Beijing for work this week. Have been a few times before so know my way around a wee bit, but normally I come with a colleague and this time I'm on my own. It would be fun to have people to hang out with. I'm working during the daytimes and am free in the evenings from today (jet-lag allowing) through to Saturday night, minus a work dinner at some point. Up for drinks, dinner, music, cultural activities, interesting local stuff. [more inside]

Cape Town, May Day weekend
I'll be in Cape Town May Day weekend -- May 1-3 -- and just thought I'd toss out a possible meetup. There doesn't seem to be a ton of South Africa activity on IRL as a rule and I'm not even sure if there are any MeFites in Cape Town, but if anyone is out there and wants to get together for a beer, I'd love to do it. My schedule those three evenings will be pretty wide open.

In my eagerness, I posted here a few months ago and Moritz suggested April 12, but it was probably a little too early to make a firm plan at that point. So trying again now!
