We had great success testing and playing different configurations of Artemis on 7/29, with 3 regular MeFites, a couple of irregular ones (me and jenquat), and an outsider remoting in from Sausalito, and it's time to schedule another one. [more inside]
I'd like to bring together a casual group to occasionally play Artemis Spaceship Bridge Simulator at my home (and possibly other venues). Since there's a learning curve to playing this cooperative spaceship bridge crew game, be prepared for some collaborative setup, burn-in, and waiting. But it's fun anyway! Come join me/us!

SF or Bay Area mefites: let's do brunch again? Details confirmed: Roosevelt Sip 'N' Eat, on Saturday, Aug. 12, at noon! The consensus seems to be in favor of math puns. [more inside]
Apologies but the rain has started and there's tons of doom and gloom on the news so I think I will sit this one out. Next time I'll give more advice notice, how about that? Stay dry and happy, folks!
Mallory Ortberg will be appearing at Pegasus Books reading from Texts from Jane Eyre in Berkeley on Saturday, November 22 at 7:30 pm. Any MeFites planning to attend? Any interest in meeting up before or after?
Do you have what it takes to go head to head with some of the best drunken spellers in the Bay Area? Still chasing the glory of the coveted Scripps Howard Award? Still fuming after losing to that skank Erin Wilson in the 4th grade over the word 'crysthanamum' and want revenge? Come to Buzzed Bee and win the glory [more inside]
As some of you may know from kindly answering my question about where to eat and drink in the San Francisco area, I'm going to be visiting your city soon. I would love to meet some SF Mefites if you all are amenable! [more inside]
The comments on this link were all "go to a MeFi Meetup" and so I was all "let's have a MeFi Meetup." I've never been to one, but I am a moderately recent transplant and would love to meet you wonderful folks. So... drinking? Games? Both together? Something else entirely?
Prompted by this question on ask.metafilter, let's meet at Bobby G's on University watch the elections! [more inside]
The Chabot Space and Science Center is showing the Curiosity Landing tonight. I missed out on tickets to NASA Ames, but I think this is the next best place to watch. [more inside]
Hey kids, are you in the East Bay for Thanksgiving? Do you need to escape your mother-in-law for a cocktail or two? Come to Five in Berkeley around 8:30 to hang out with some of your friendly East Bay MeFites. [more inside]
I just moved up to Berkeley and I'd love to meet all my neighbors. I no longer have to schlep it up to a meet up. Weeknights are generally open for me. Who's in? [more inside]
Hey Mefites, I'm sure most of you already have your Halloween plans in place, but if there are any other last minute stragglers (like, ahem, me) I'm meeting some friends at Jupiter's in Berkeley for some good beer, some live music, and some delightful times. If you are going to be in the area, come join us! I'll be the valkyrie.
