April 30

Hello good people of MetaFilter! In between traveling, inclement weather, work, and other social engagements, I have somehow sadly allowed months to pass without a single food-related journey. But never fear. We ride again! And this time, we ride to Uzbekistan. Thanks to drlith's excellent suggestion, I propose that we meet on May 28th for a delicious Uzbek luncheon at Silk Road Choyhona in Gaithersburg, MD. Who's in? [more inside]

Episode XCVI (or so) THE SAME OLD GOAT It was a dark time for the Cabal* . Although the Trump Tower can be ignored, continued media coverage of the election has driven the rebels underground to a place with no fries but some Wheel of Fortune with any luck... [more inside]

April 24

The last card-game meetup went well, so let's have another one. Let's meet at the library next Sunday, May 1st, at 1:00. That time and venue are flexible: If people would prefer a different time or place, I'll change it.

April 23

Self-explanatory. This is walking distance from my house, so if no one shows up I'm going either way. They serve alcohol if that makes a difference to you. I picked the day with the best weather but I'm fine with Tues or Thurs too. [more inside]

April 17

Join us in our continued domination of the weekly George & Dragon Pub Quiz, which apparently is made up nearly entirely of MeFites, anyway.

April 13

Interested in good conversation? Exploring ideas? Reading the odd article to jumpstart a thoughtful exchange? Then join us for the next Salon—now in Brooklyn—on Monday, April 25, 2016. [more inside]

I know there are a bunch of expectant MeFi parents in the DC area (and maybe some recent parents?) so I thought it would be nice if we could have a meetup to keep ourselves sane(ish) and get a chance to check in with other intelligent, thoughtful adults going through the same thing. Everyone who wants to come is welcome, just know that the conversation might center around, like, babies and whatnot. I expect this to be this Saturday afternoon, April 16th. [more inside]

April 11

They're holding--due to high demand and a sell-out of the first one on April 1st--a second All Ladies Craft Beer Festival. But this time in downtown TO and during the day! [more inside]

April 10

Hey! Saturday April 16! Me and likeatoaster and chaoticgood (and non-mefite Mr. Oticgood) are driving from Louisville to Cincinnati! Plans include Jungle Jim's in the late morning (then maybe grabbing food at Findlay) and then Rhinegeist at 3 (possibly followed by other breweries, Purple Bridge, or other downtown attractions). If you're a Cincinnatian who wants to join before 3, you can email me on Saturday (email's in profile) to see where we are at any given time!

Does anyone in the Boston area want to meet up and play cards? I'm open to any games less complicated than Bridge and more interesting than War. I don't know any great venues for card-playing off the top of head, but I'm sure we can think of something. Even if you don't know any games yourself, you're welcome to come: For my part, I'll bring one of those big books of card games. EDIT: Let's meet at the Cambridge Public Library at 1:00 this Sunday, April 17th! If not enough people can make that time, date, or place, then all of those things are flexible.

After reading not_on_display's genius post about the Museum of Jurassic Technology, I realized it's been too long since I've been. Time for a meetup! [more inside]

April 8

So captivepredator and I were talking about a pre-meetup meetup on Saturday before the Writers with Drinks event. If you can't go to WwD or if you just want EVEN MORE Mefite time, come hang out with us at Borderlands. (It's just a few blocks away from the main meetup!) [more inside]

We have retreated like the gathering wave: next week let us fall on our foes and smother them in foamy facts.
