FOGcon meetup

FOGcon, a literary sf convention, is happening in 6 weeks in Walnut Creek. This year's theme is The Traveller. "From The Odyssey to Dr. Who, Margery Kempe to Alyx, the Traveler is an iconic figure. This trope evokes a whole class of stories in both SF and fantasy in a compact and emotionally suggestive form....We will explore such topics as modes of travel, evolving attitudes toward the idea of an alien realm, the range of metaphors travel stands for, changing expectations about the experience of earthly or space travel, and how to be an extreme wilderness hiker - or an extreme hitchhiker. And lots more. Honored Guests: Kim Stanley Robinson, Catherynne M. Valente, Joanna Russ (posthumous)." [more inside]

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?

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?
