It's back to my neck of the woods this week, as I'm recovering from a pretty gnarly back injury, and I'm trying to keep my travel to a minimum. (Next week we'll venture forth again!)
To quote 1970s Antihero: "Let's meet up and drink beers. Because we're adults and we can."
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.
As discussed at the Keg & Lantern meetup: I'm resurrecting the weekly meetup. This time, it's on Wednesday.
For the next three months, Josh and I are going to be living in Greenpoint (right on the border of Williamsburg) and I'd love to get together with mefites somewhere in the general neighborhood this Thursday evening. I'm near the Graham Avenue stop on the L, or Nassau on the G. Where should we go?
I'm going to be in NYC the weekend of April 25th, and I'd love to organize an outing to the bottle beach at Dead Horse Bay in Brooklyn. Anyone interested? [more inside]
It appears that I am going to be finding myself alone on Valentine's Day night in NYC. Let's drink! [more inside]
Same old, same old. Bring your games, bring your food, bring your drinks. We start at 2pm. UPDATE: We will be ending at 8pm this time.
Weekly meetup! Lives again? [more inside]
edit: Friday, December 26 at the 4th Ave Pub it is then! See you all there! Original: NY Mefites! I'll be in New York from Christmas Day till New Year and I'd like to meet any and all of you. My schedule is open so far* and a date between 26-30 would probably work best. I'll be staying in Brooklyn (near DeKalb Ave) though venturing outside the borough is fine too if most people prefer that. Shall we have the last meetup of 2014? [more inside]
It’s time for my long-threatened shuffleboard meetup. [more inside]
Because of life and stuff,* there has not been an October meetup. Our November meetup will be Saturday the 15th. We'll start at 2pm. Bring your games, snacks and/or drinks. [more inside]
Soda Bar - Brooklyn - Wednesday [more inside]
Hello, MetaFilter! I'll be popping by Brooklyn from the 6th to the 11th of this month, and I wonder if anyone would care for a quick lunch meet-up (let's say on Sunday the 7th) with me, Mrs quidnunc and the quidnunc baby (him name: quark). Somewhere nice in Williamsburg or thereabouts may be easiest, and a pub is always an option if drunch is better than lunch. Or an afternoon cocktail or tea party, or whatever. Or feel free to tell me where to go, either literally or figuratively. [more inside]
Our September meetup will be Saturday the 20th. We'll start at 2pm. Bring your games, snacks and/or drinks. [more inside]

Beer and cocktails and outdoors, oh my! [more inside]
South Slope has an absolute gem of a little cocktail bar in Quarter. Also, Metafilter's Own™ davidjmcgee will be tending the bar Thursday night, so let's all go and tip well.
We won Pacific Standard's pub quiz a while ago and never redeemed our prize, a $200 party at the bar. Join us and drink free (within reason)!
It's a week. Time for a meetup. [more inside]
Been wanting to try Mission Dolores in Park Slope and I see they have a beer week special. What say you, Mefites?
7 pm. If people don't like the time/place let me know and I'll consider changing it, we'll also hope it's still open.

A spin off from the other New Years meetup thread. Things that are known: wanting to go to the steam whistles at Pratt; wanting to eat, drink, and be merry beforehand. Things that are unknown: Where and when to eat, drink, and be merry. [more inside]
I'm thinking I, and probably others, would enjoy an immediate post-Thanksgiving meet-up, to do some social stretching for those of us cooped up the days prior. [more inside]

A couple weeks ago at a meetup, I mentioned the Pickle Shack, a new bar that is a collaboration between Dogfish Head and Brooklyn Brine. It seemed like there's some interest in checking it out. [more inside]
Due to an astonishing lack of available weekend days this month, our November meetup will be FRIDAY the 22nd. Seeing as how it's a weekday, we'll be starting at 7pm, rather than our usual 2pm. Bring your games, snacks and/or drinks. [more inside]
I feel like there hasn't been a meetup in northern Brooklyn in a while and I have wanted to try The Rookery in Bushwick so I am calling a meetup there. [more inside]
I've come to realize I'm not the only aimless Brooklyn mefite when it comes to Halloween this year. Perhaps there are more! This is a hybrid meetup, but that's not an option in the drop-down. Movie + drinks! And candy! [more inside]
Heading back to the Soda Bar. Mainly because I want to go back to the book store across the street. I am willing to listen to suggestions on this one for location. Date is fixed, Wednesday is Secret Science Club.
Brooklyn meetup - who's in? Zombie Hut, Thursday October 10th. Yes? Yes!
We narrowed it down to a date! An actual date! And an actual place! And my mind is still reeling that it's a German beer garden (who'd a thunk it?) just down the street from where I used to live back in the 90s! Here's the place. Looking forward to meeting new friends in my old neighborhood that will no doubt seem like a new neighborhood. Prost!
DATE HAS CHANGED. Our October meetup will be Saturday the 26th. Bring your games, snacks and/or drinks. These meetups usually last 8-10 hours, so feel free to come over even if you can't make it for the first hour or three. [more inside]
There is nothing wrong with your web browser. Do not attempt to reload this page. I control the time and the place of this meetup. If I wish to make it earlier I will change the time. You are about to experience a beer hall in Northern Brooklyn. [more inside]
Hey, our (capnsue, josher71, petulant beard) band, Blackwolf Beach is playing at Grand Victory in Brooklyn at 8pm on the 21st of September. It would be awesome to see some mefites there and have an impromptu meetup of sorts. We are from Baltimore but would love to meet some NYC mefites. We will answer any and all questions relating to Charm City. We have a facebook and a bandcamp if you would like to check us out to see what you are getting into or make sure you don't hate us. https://facebook.com/BWBband http://blackwolfbeach.bandcamp.com It's a show with Cut Up Cult.
