In Iceland for a couple of weekends

Hey! My partner and I are going to be in Reykjavik on September 2nd and 3rd and then again on the 10th. I’ve noticed there’s a statistically improbable number of Mefites there and would love to grab a few drinks with y’all (or just serve as an excuse for a meetup). What do people think?

Meetup on an LA Weeknight Aug. 24-26 (Weds. through Fri.)?

I'm taking a trip up the West Coast and was wondering if any Mefites want to meet up! I've only been to LA once before and saw all the touristy Hollywood stuff (and had In-N-Out :D), so I think someone else will probably have to propose the place/activity . . . [more inside]

I'll be around most of the day on Friday for sure if we wanted to do something during the day instead.

Kinda last minute but I'm forgetful. So I'll be at Defcon next weekend & would enjoy meeting up with any other MeFites in Las Vegas, either attending or not. I'll be getting in Thursday afternoon & leaving Monday morning so anything between Aug 4-7 is generally in the picture for me. The Con is at Paris & Ballys but I'll have a car & can handle anywhere in town really.

PoMo MeFi

Heya cobbers. We were considering doing a Pokemon meetup and catching of monsters. Lollusc is late to the party and banished to Canberra for a few days so we must soothe her pain upon return.

Open to date , time and venue suggestions although Usyd isn't bad and may be centrally accessible. Can be day with kiddoes or night with boozoes. (Fridays are out as it's often Chaiday Night at my place. To which MeFites have a standing invitation. ) We can all set lures in close proximity and enjoy the sprinkle of soft falling pink bits..
