New to Portland, OR

Um, hi. I've been in Portland for two months now and will probably be staying here. I'm taking a javascript course at Portland Code School and I don't know anyone here besides my classmates. I live in the Pearl District right now and am looking to meet people to hang out with, drink beer with and just generally do stuff with. I love local lore, local adventures and meeting new people. Want to meet up?

Sleater-Kinney is playing the 9:30 Club, so I am being lured to the Potomac. Would anyone like to meet up beforehand? Sleater-Kinney attendance not required (and anyhow the show is sold out). Venue: your choice: the Satellite Room or the Brixton? I have never actually met a MeFite but understand it involves beans on a plate. [more inside]

Cthulhu! X-Files! Metal Music! Medieval History! Comics! Octopi! Golden Age Horror!

If the event title appeals to you perhaps we can chat and get to know one another :) I am a Canadian woman in my early 30s with vacation time from January onwards, and no idea how to spend it. Rather than throw a dart at a map (while I chant unspeakable abominations) maybe this will help me refine my plan. I am just looking to make friends who share my interests. More inside...

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?
