Shatterdome Atlanta, a Pacific Rim Convention

There's a significant number of MeFites who love Guillermo del Toro's robots-punchan-monsters film, Pacific Rim. Shatterdome Atlanta is in its second year and is expanding to 2 days -- June 13 and 14. It's a fun little niche con (I'm on staff). We've got some cool prizes and guests, but above all else, we just want to geek out together about this awesome movie. [more inside]

MeFi Sasquan

I think it would be really cool for all MeFites who will be at Sasquan, the 73rd World Science Fiction Convention, to get together. I propose the District Bar on Friday August 21 for early dinner because a) it's a mile walk from the con so we can work up an appetite, b) the menu looks good, and c) I know I'll certainly need a break from the con at that point.

Intro to Poker Class

HI friends! I'm teaching an Intro to Poker Class at the very adorable skill share place QED in Astoria next week. The class is $20 which gets you 1 unforgettable hour of extremely useful and fun instruction on both how to play better poker (with a side order of basic statistics) and how to not look like a rube while playing, plus an entry into a free tournament to commence right after the class, at which you could win a fabulous prize (probably a poker book, I don't actually know). Here is a link to the venue. Please ignore the part that says I am a professional player. I was just bluffing when I wrote that. Ha ha. Anyway if you want $5 off the price let me know and I'll send you a discount code. Or just show up and let me know you're from metafilter and I'll buy you a beer.

Easter Dinner at RMH

Let's go to the Ronald McDonald house in Hyde Park and make Easter dinner for the families of sick kids. We've done this a couple times before. Dinner time is targeted at 5:00 pm, so plan accordingly as to when to show up. I'm planning on getting there around 3:00 to help everyone out and start working on whatever concoction I'm making...probably a lentil based stew dish. The Hyde Park house asks that we don't bring more than 12 volunteers, but I don't expect that's a problem. The house has 98% of the utensils and tools you need for cooking, we just need people to a) volunteer to be head chef for a dinner dish or b) volunteer to be sous chef for any / all of the head chefs. A variety of dishes that can get around a variety of tastes, allergies, and dietary restrictions is preferred by us, though the house is just happy for us to show up. We're typically cooking for 25 guests + us, and they'd prefer us to err on the side of leftovers if we can. We've rarely had issues with that though.
