King Kong Free at the UPCA
This month's entry in the "Sunday Movies at the Palace with Lin-Manuel Miranda" is the original 1933 King Kong. Doors open at 4pm, pre-show entertainment by the Palace Youth Drum Ensemble at 4:30, Lin-Manuel's pre-show Q&A with John Landis at 5pm, then the movie itself at 5:30. No charge at the door, but this is part of the UPCA's push to raise enough money for a new movie screen, so they will no doubt be pushing for donations throughout the pre-show.

Cambridge is kicking our ass, Portland. We need more meetups.
I was thinking we should have a game day/evening here in Portland again. Any suggestions for days/times/locales? Just cards, like that one time that devolved into cards against humanity? Board games? Which also usually devolves into cards against humanity. How do we feel about just playing cards against humanity, or do we not want to do that at all? [more inside]

Durham Bulls Game Meetup
Let's plan a meetup at a Durham Bulls game for some time in May or June [May 4, Star Wars Night]. It's minor-league baseball, so the prices are low: The most expensive tickets are $30 (our will be in the $10 range), real pints of local craft beers are $5-7, and most concession food is in the $1-5 range. At the same time, the team is AAA, meaning the players are good enough to be only one step away from the Major Leagues, as demonstrated in detail in that great documentary film Bull Durham. Scheduling and booking details inside. [more inside]

I moved to London last year but I have not managed to meet up with any London mefites yet, I feel like it would be fun to go to a pub and meet you guys. Perhaps we can bring board games or card games to play? The Penderel's Oak is a pub(wetherspoons) in the centre that I know is nice and big - would anyone like to have a london mefi meetup there next month? Edit: OK, 5th of April Then, I will bring a sign with a mefi logo on it and will be there from 7 till whenever. Please bring games if you have them. :)
