Pittsburgh Welcome Wagon

Hi All, I've recently moved to Pittsburgh and wanted to test the MeFi waters out here. I'm here for a grad program but other than my little school cohort, I don't know anyone in the city. I'd love to organize a low key meet and greet, maybe a Friday evening at Arsenal Cider House? I'm open to suggestions. Mostly I'd just love to say hi to my new pgh neighbors!

New Salon NYC - Meeting #10

This time out, we'll be chatting about the challenges inherent in "the unalienable right to pursue happiness," whether unhappiness is mostly caused by the gap between who we are and who we want to be, and whether it's really happiness we lack when we feel unhappy. Please join us for drinks and conversation at the next Salon in Brooklyn, on Friday, September 30, 2016 at 7:30 PM. [more inside]

Yes, and...Improv Night Volume 2

Looking at everyone's schedules, it seems like our best bet will be October 8. There are three shows and you can buy a pass for all three, which I might just do. The schedule is:

8:00 pm Election! The improvised comedy election you wish was real – not to be confused with the real election you wish was an improvised comedy

9:30 pm Super Good Super Good takes simple ideas to their furthest physical and emotional distance. Let’s go! The ensemble cast is Anna Tobin, Erik Neilson, Gubby Kubik, Lupe Muraszewski, and Molly Chase.

10:30 pm Attenborough: The improvised wildlife documentary Attenborough : The Improvised Wildlife Documentary Explore the wonders of the animal kingdom in glorious, live, improvised 3-D.

Weekly Trivia Night at George and The Dragon: Fight for Redemption

I'm late with the post, but by gum, it is still happening! After two stunning victories in prior weeks, last week, we had a devastating second-place finish, apparently because some hotshot team from the 1990s came out of retirement and decided to eat our breakfast for us. This cannot happen again. Well, it can, but it'd sure be nice if it didn't. [more inside]
