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]

East Bay Beer Tasting.

So, I made some beer, it turned out good, and I like to share. I'm calling it TCP-IPA, and the recipe is here. Thing is, I don't get out that much, at least close to home, so I don't know a good venue for this kind of thing. I was thinking of asking Øl in Walnut Creek if I could bring some of my own - but I'd be open to other suggestions of a good place and time (in January) UPDATE: Got a place. Details inside

It's my birthday! And my meetup!

Damn it, Christmas. Always stealing my thunder. Let's have dinner + sauce as you want it on my birthday, 12/26. I'd love to meet some mefites too! We're eating at the wonderful Kingfish Cafe in North Capitol Hill with reservations at 8pm. Afterwards, we'll go to the Unicorn, The Hideout or Rockbox Karaoke (whichever is least crowded). I look forward to seeing whoever can come on this little notice and around this stupid holiday -- and to getting a more solid group of Seattle meetup people in general! (Please no "maybe" answers - I will need to change the reservation.) There will be cake.
