It's Wednesday night at Joe Sent Me, where the Taters all gather for Geeks Who Drink trivia--no foolin'!

To quote 1970s Antihero: "Let's meet up and drink beers. Because we're adults and we can."

Let's go to the Ronald McDonald house in Hyde Park and make Easter dinner for the families of sick kids. We've done this a couple times before. Dinner time is targeted at 5:00 pm, so plan accordingly as to when to show up. I'm planning on getting there around 3:00 to help everyone out and start working on whatever concoction I'm making...probably a lentil based stew dish. The Hyde Park house asks that we don't bring more than 12 volunteers, but I don't expect that's a problem. The house has 98% of the utensils and tools you need for cooking, we just need people to a) volunteer to be head chef for a dinner dish or b) volunteer to be sous chef for any / all of the head chefs. A variety of dishes that can get around a variety of tastes, allergies, and dietary restrictions is preferred by us, though the house is just happy for us to show up. We're typically cooking for 25 guests + us, and they'd prefer us to err on the side of leftovers if we can. We've rarely had issues with that though.

Edit: We have moved to Perdition, since the Three Monkeys was a madhouse. As suggested by hactar, we're going to try The Three Monkeys in Midtown. Start time this week is 7pm. And as far as I can tell from their website, there will be no terrible open mics.

Hey bay area mefites! You may recall my question about visiting in which I expressed interest in going to the Exploratorium after dark. I just bought my plane tickets. Who's in for poking around at the museum on Thursday April 30th? [more inside]

Having taken Seattle by storm the previous week, my west coast pre-nursing-school vacation continues with a stop in Portland from April 21st-27th. I haven't been here since I've been old enough to drink, and I gather you've got a lot of tasty beer. Can you show me some good examples? [more inside]

This will be my first time in Seattle, and I'm considering a move there, and I only know about 3 (albeit awesome) people there. My preference is for the evening/happy hour of Thursday March 19 but I could do any evening except Saturday the 21st, if there's another day that works well for more people. [more inside]

Edit: We are decamping to one stop beer shop on Kingsland to avoid the open mic here at Boulevard. One more in my new neighborhood before I acquiesce and choose a Manhattan location for next week. I'm setting the starting time for this one at 7, since I'll be coming from work, but I can change it to 6:30pm if others want to start without me.

I'm throwing a party to celebrate getting through the equinox and the beginning of spring, but more importantly International Color Day! I had such a lovely time at my first meetup here in New York I'd like to invite y'all to stop by if you'd like. I'll be baking pies and cookies; there will be cocktails and other beverages and interesting folks and friends and lots of lovely conversation. It'll be bright and colorful in every sense.

The last time I put on a show in our main exhibition space, I invited MetaFilter to come see it. It was a lot of fun, so I'd like to do so once again, to see "Starry Messengers: Signs and Science from the Skies." [more inside]
