Ok, so due to various fuckery the last proposed event of this type didn't happen. But! We're doing it for real this time! Seriously! So, drinks at One Last Shag?

So, over in the August August meetup thread, we've reached a consensus about meeting up at Sawtelle and Olympic in West LA for delicious Japanese cuisine on August 3rd. Let's plan it.

Update! Let's meet outside Tsujita Annex at 5pm on Sunday! If we have too many for Tsujita/Tsujita Annex, we can evolve from there.
Update #2! I mistyped '5' instead of '3.' Meetup is intended to be on Sunday, August 3rd. Updating now!
Update #3! It's been one of those weeks. 5pm, not 8pm. Apparently that's where the 5 in the date came from, heh. Cue nervous chuckle. [more inside]

Scheduling for August 31st at 6:00 PM. Let me know if this works for folks. I'll look into reservations when we get closer to the time and have a better sense of who's able to come. Yay! [more inside]

I'm visiting SF again 4th to 20th August and it would be cool to meet some MeFites. Drinks at Virgil's Sea Room at 3pm on 16th August (Saturday). Come later in the day if you want since I'm presuming we will be there a while. We may pop out for food at some point - I'll keep the thread updated.

It's Geeks Who Drink trivia time once again, back at Joe Sent Me, Cambridge, Wednesday at 7:30. Minus Horace Rumpole, who will be flying back from Philly that evening. Let's hope there are no questions about Samuel Johnson in this week's quiz.

As discussed at last night's meetup, there is a lot of interest for a board game meetup! Let's meet at Roll Play Cafe at Yonge and Edwards at 2 PM on Sunday, Aug 10th. Bring your best games...or at least your game face!

I am going to be in Phoenix this week for work and will have Wednesday and Thursday evenings free. I want to go to Los Sombreros for tacos and Souvia for tea, and will likely also hit Gallo Blanco. I am flexible about what happens when, but if anyone is interested in joining me for either that would be lovely.

Hey Austin! I am visiting your fair city and will be around Monday and Tuesday evenings. I would like to check out Mr. Natural, Papalote House, or both for tacos, and The Steeping Room for tea (per my recent ask). I am not particular about when I go where, but I would love to have the pleasure of your company if you are interested.

I'm having a small but cutthroat NES/SNES tournament at my house near Old Mill station tomorrow night. We'll be playing games chosen at random from the entire NES/SNES catalogue (emulated on a hacked Wii with Classic Controllers). We'd welcome a few more participants. [more inside]

UPDATE: Called, for both August 3rd and August 24th. Yesterday was St. Swithin's Day, and since it didn't rain I am cautiously optimistic: is there any interest in catching one of the Highland Park "Reservoir of Jazz" performances? They're free, and take place every Sunday in August from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. [more inside]

I'll be in town from the evening of July 28th through the afternoon of the 30th, for a day and a half meeting near Sea World. Tiger! Tiger! sounds like a nice place to hang out, drink and/or eat, if the fancy strikes you for any of those three. This could also give us time to transition to someplace else for pub trivia, if we're motivated. [more inside]
