Stardate November 21, 2014. As acting captain of the USS MeFiDC, I will be posting tonight's Star Trek happy hour event. On tap this week: "The Arsenal of Freedom": Trapped on the surface of an abandoned planet, an away team becomes unwitting participants in the demonstration of an advanced weapons system. Oh, and also alcohol. Plenty of alcohol. [more inside]

November 12

After checking in with Celsius1414 I'm re-posting this since it didn't get off the ground last time.

Food! Drink! Games! Friends! Food and drink and games and friends at the same time!


I stumbled across a mention of gaming nights at Grand Central Market in DTLA and tracked down this press release and then this page.

Game Night at Grand Central Market

Looking to unwind after a tough day at work? Searching for fast, amazing fare to satisfy your foodie cravings? Planning a non-cliche date night? Whatever your Downtown LA dilemma, the city's oldest food hub has your back.

Enter Game Night -- eat, drink and play every Thursday until 9 pm. Grab dinner and drinks from our late hours vendors over an assortment of classic and new games: ping-pong, cornhole toss, Jenga, Uno, Cards Against Humanity, Scrabble, and many more. Just head over to the Hill St. Platform to get started.

We broached the subject of a gaming night at our last meetup (mmmm ramen), so this "proposed" post is more of a means to continue that conversation than saying it should be here at GCM necessarily.

Update 9/5: The consensus during our Ethiopian food meetup conversation seemed to be that with everybody being spread out, it's difficult to make a game night plan on work nights. If someone else wants to propose game/trivia/movie meetups for their individual environs, that might be the better way to go. [more inside]

I recently-ish moved back to my hometown, and it looks like there have only been a few IRL events here. If you're a Cincinnati MeFite, chime in, and let's drink beer and eat food from whatever food truck is parked outside MadTree. [more inside]

I'm going to be in the Bay Area for a few days next week, and as a huge Tiki fan, I'm very much looking forward to checking out the new, well pedigreed Tiki Bar, Longitude. I'm thinking 6-ish onward on Friday the 7th. Anyone interested?

I've officially told my colleagues so I can now share it here. This is likely to be my last Pennsylvania meetup. After living here for over 25 years I've accepted a job from Ohio State and will be moving to Ohio in December. If you can, join me for my final PA get together. Let's meet at 6pm at Zenos.
