I haven't seen any meetups proposed for Philadelphia, so I'm wondering if there is an active enough contingent there to warrant putting one together. Philly MeFites, are you there?

Wondering if anyone is interested in meeting up this year. Dates are July 6th through July 9th, Locale is the Doubletree in Bloomington MN, with more things happening across the street at the Sheraton (former Sofitel). Check out the schedule and convention site for more planning info.

I'll be in Hong Kong doing research through the end of July, and I'd love to meet a few HK-based Mefites. Would folks be up for getting together--I'm thinking an inexpensive noodle shop for dinner, then/or an earlyish drink--sometime in the next few weeks? [more inside]

I am an underemployed person looking to get more structure in my life. Wondering if there are fellow underemployed or self-employed MeFites who might want to meet in a common space periodically and go about their business (or pleasure) in the excellent company of one another in the East Bay area (Oakland, Berkeley, Albany, El Cerrito).

Worldcon is in Helsinki this year ( and I'm bringing resident 11 year old. Dates are 9-13 August though I think we are arriving on the 8th. Anyone else planning to be there? I've been to 2 Worldcons before and generally the problem I've found is I have no problem talking to new people but meeting up with people I already know can be difficult if we haven't made concrete plans as Worldcon is just so big. While I am all about the sitting and drinking, that probably won't be very 11 yo friendly so I am open to other suggestions - maybe a picnic or walk near the convention centre? Or an evening meal?

There are sad and terrible and amazing and mysterious things at the Undersea Museum, and its environs are lovely in spring and summer. Who's interested in a summer meetup, maybe followed by a park picnic or ? [more inside]

I'm flying back to Sydney and landing April 2nd. Anyone want to meetup for drinks that day, as I'll need the excuse and socialization to keep me awake after that travel.

Greetings Athens mefites- I am in Athens for two months volunteering and would love to meet for coffee or drinks. If you are in Athens and would be up for that let me know and we can put something together.

I'm going to be in Amsterdam for a few days and thought it would be fun to meet up at one of my favorite museums-- the foam. One notable exhibit: photographer Ren Hang recently passed away and his work is on exhibit there. [more inside]

February 17

Anyone else excited to see Kedi, the new documentary about street cats in Istanbul, (currently at 100/85 on RT)? It starts at the Rialto in Raleigh on March 10 and seems perfect for a meetup. Durham or Chapel Hill theaters showing it could work if that's better for folks. Maybe include a stop for appetizers before or drinks after? It's all questions at this point, except for the kitties, which are solid.

Edited: Given the problematic elements with Stand up to Racism (please see links in this thread), I'd like to find a better way to take a stand against structures of violence — one that is inclusive, looks out for survivors and creates a safe space for everybody. I've edited this post title, new copy is in brackets. I've moved the original post copy below here, kept for posterity. --- Original post: >Would anybody like to meet up for and/or after the March Against Racism National demonstration on March 18, 2017 in London? >This Stand Up to Racism Demo is for UN Anti-Racism Day. Other UK rallies are happening same day in Glasgow and Cardiff. [more inside]

January 31

Hi gang, Hope the holidays were good for all! Our last proposed meetup ending up falling through as it was difficult to pin down a night when everyone was around - thought I would attempt a 2nd kick at the can and see if we can do a winter gathering of sorts. How does Friday, Feb 10 sound? Just for the sake of lobbing a 1st suggestion into the pool. Hope the new year has been kind to everyone so far & looking forward to seeing everyone again!

I'm pretty introverted and strangers make me nervous, so I always think about going to meet ups and then back out. Mostly because on top of all that, it seems I have to travel into New York which can get expensive and traveling there by myself freaks me out. So maybe if I changed one of the two issues I'd have better luck is what I'm thinking. Meet up with less scary travel. [more inside]
