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?

Board Game Meetup!
As discussed at last night's meetup, there is a lot of interest for a board game meetup! I'm partial to Roll Play Cafe at Yonge and Edwards for being able to accommodate larger groups, but Castle Board Games on Spadina and Snakes and Lattes/Lagers on Bloor are also good options. Would, say, Sunday afternoon Aug 10th work for people?

Another San Diego meetup in July? Why not!
At least, it's worth a try - I know there's a meetup will happen on July 22, but I'll be in town from the evening of July 28th through the afternoon of the 30th, for a day and a half meeting near Sea World. Selfish complication: I won't have a car. [more inside]

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!

Quansar season is flexible in Houston, isn't it?
During last night's quiz meetup it was noted that it's been a while since we've had a non-quiz-based meetup to simply socialize and catch up. We're willing to host again at our place, but recognize that holding it in Missouri City does place a bit of a travel imposition on some. So, lets start a discussion: when shall we meet, and if not in MoCity, where?

Providence/SE MA Meetup
It's 2014. Time to finally plan the meetup I've been thinking about for years. I live in North Attleboro, about 30 minutes north of Providence, and am willing to host something in my neck of the woods or the general vicinity. At a restaurant? A bar? A library? An abandoned factory down by the river? I'm definitely looking for feedback, suggestions, creative co-hosts... [more inside]
