I'm going to be in Lakeview/Boystown on Friday, January 20 for some appointments. I'll be done with what I need to do by 2 pm at the absolute latest. Does anyone want to meet up anytime after that (I assume most of you work)? It's inauguration day (*shudders*) so we all may need a beer to cry into. If you don't want to cry, you can help me celebrate some (obviously unrelated) good news.
I will devote one day this weekend to sewing pussyhats and thought I'd see if anyone wanted to join! I don't know how to knit or crochet, but yarn-folk are definitely welcome. [more inside]
We Tokyo MeFites are notorious for not actually meeting up very much. In that spirit this is the laziest MeFI Meetup proposal ever. Let's just get together somewhere. [more inside]
Pittsburghers, I miss you guys! I know a place where we can meet and beanplate together where the music is not too loud and the free street parking is plentiful, J. Gough's in Greenfield. Would anyone want to get together the 13th or 14th of January or the following weekend?
Transportation Research Board's annual mega-conference is starting today (Sunday, Jan. 8) and runs through Thursday (Jan. 12) in Washington, D.C. Who's in town for this?
I can't believe I'm doing this, but the hell with it! It's a new year! So why not boldly go where no Mefi has gone before!? I wrote this recent Metatalk question — and have likely been giving nightmares to Cortex ever since. But before the thread devolved entirely into jokes, a few commentators suggested organizing an IRL Mefi Single People Meetup. After all, we're in New York, aren't there a bunch of us here? My gut instinct was to dismiss the idea entirely, which is why I wrote: "For those (coupled?) extroverts suggesting interested parties just host a singles Mefi meet-up, let me just say this: Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha. That's a good one!" But then.... [more inside]
Look, I know a lot of us are coming to the March, and I bet a lot of us don't yet have plans on anyone to march with. And I know that some of us would like Pussy Hats to wear and some of us can make 'em; it seems like a good idea to coordinate in advance on that. [more inside]
Posting to gauge interest in a mefi solar eclipse meetup in or near Carbondale IL. The date is obviously set (Aug 21) but the details of the meet up location and any other plans are open to suggestion. I live in Carbondale and plan to have the day off of work so I can help coordinate and facilitate as needed but first I need to know if anyone is interested and what other folks had in mind.

Yeah. I can't believe it either. But then, here we are. Wanna think? Shall we drink? [more inside]

I'm visiting the Tri-cities of WA in January and would like to say hi.

Just a chance for some pre-festive Me-Fi cheer. [more inside]

It doesn't look like one has ever been proposed, but would any me-fites be interested in a meetup somewhere in Honolulu? [more inside]

The idea has been floated before but never got beyond a few "we should do this" comments. Is there any interest in a Syracuse NY meetup to be held after the holidays? Any thoughts on where or when? [more inside]

I'm both a parent – part time – and a whisky lover. Why not combine these things? I'm willing to offer some good bottles and a kid friendly place. My son is 7, my home is capacious, so let's taste good booze and let kids play! Children are optional. I merely want to establish that they are welcome. If you're child free, but like whiskey, please come. Bring drinks! [Update: Postponed to Feb 4]

I moved to Leeds a few months ago and now seems like a good a time as any to see if there are any Loiner MeFites kicking about. Doesn't have to be anything too elaborate, and I realise that the hectic holiday season is also looming so I would be happy to organise something for after the start of the new year. Any takers?
