Meetup at Mission Dolores on June 5th

Hey, I'm coming to Brooklyn on the weekend of June 5th to beat around and be a tourist for a bit. Anyone want to get drinks/dinner in the area? I heard the 4th Avenue Pub was good, but I don't know the area, so I'm open to other venues, and any time between Friday afternoon and Saturday night is fine by me. EDIT: Let's go to Mission Dolores! If people would prefer a different time, I'm definitely open to changing that until like a week before I come down.

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]
