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]

March 16

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.

Time for another GameHaus meetup! No tabletop gaming experience necessary! GameHaus is a laughter-filled place in Glendale that has over 1000 games, from strategic board games to party games like Pictionary. We usually get a mix of experienced players to help guide us and people like me, who have never played most of the games, and everyone is really patient. It's always a great time. [more inside]

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]

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!

January 25

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]

January 14

I'm going to be in Lakeview/Boystown on Friday, January 20 for some appointments. I'll be done with what I need to do by 2 pm at the absolute latest. Does anyone want to meet up anytime after that (I assume most of you work)? It's inauguration day (*shudders*) so we all may need a beer to cry into. If you don't want to cry, you can help me celebrate some (obviously unrelated) good news.

I will devote one day this weekend to sewing pussyhats and thought I'd see if anyone wanted to join! I don't know how to knit or crochet, but yarn-folk are definitely welcome. [more inside]

Transportation Research Board's annual mega-conference is starting today (Sunday, Jan. 8) and runs through Thursday (Jan. 12) in Washington, D.C. Who's in town for this?

I can't believe I'm doing this, but the hell with it! It's a new year! So why not boldly go where no Mefi has gone before!? I wrote this recent Metatalk question — and have likely been giving nightmares to Cortex ever since. But before the thread devolved entirely into jokes, a few commentators suggested organizing an IRL Mefi Single People Meetup. After all, we're in New York, aren't there a bunch of us here? My gut instinct was to dismiss the idea entirely, which is why I wrote: "For those (coupled?) extroverts suggesting interested parties just host a singles Mefi meet-up, let me just say this: Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha. That's a good one!" But then.... [more inside]

Posting to gauge interest in a mefi solar eclipse meetup in or near Carbondale IL. The date is obviously set (Aug 21) but the details of the meet up location and any other plans are open to suggestion. I live in Carbondale and plan to have the day off of work so I can help coordinate and facilitate as needed but first I need to know if anyone is interested and what other folks had in mind.
