When Taters last in the dooryard bloomed

True to their tuber roots (see what I did there?) spring is the time when all true Taters head inside to a dark room to answer trivia questions.

That last part may not be true of potatoes.

Slow Art Day @ Harvard Art Museums

Slow Art Day is a worldwide event that invites you to experience museums in a different way. Instead of trying to see everything in the museum, we'll be looking at 5 works of art for 10 minutes apiece. This year, I'm hosting an event at the newly reopened Harvard Art Museums! [more inside]

Dune at the Brattle

The Brattle Theater in Cambridge is playing a series of David Lynch movies from Monday, February 23rd to Thursday, March 5th. Anyone want to go see one of them? I'm interested in Dune and Blue Velvet, since those are playing on the weekend, but would be up for pretty much anything in the series. EDIT: We're going to see Dune on Friday the 27th. I'd rather go at 7:00, but if outvoted, 9:30 is also fine.

Pumpkin Spice Trivia

The candy corn is in the supermarket, the pumpkin spice is back in the coffee shops, and the buses are clogged with students, so that must mean it's fall. Enjoy a pumpkin beer (or not) while you plumb the depths of your knowledge on DQ shake flavors, pop music, and occasionally sports this Wednesday at 7:30 at Geeks Who Drink trivia at Joe Sent Me, Cambridge.

Movies at the Brattle on Sunday?

The Brattle Theater has a really good set of movies coming up this Sunday, 2014/9/14: Sunset Boulevard at 1:00, Chinatown at 3:15 (these two can be seen as a double feature), Los Angeles Plays Itself at 6:00, and Repo Man at 9:30. Does anyone want to go see any of these movies in particular? I saw that Los Angeles Plays Itself was scheduled and was primarily interested in that, but I'd be happy seeing any of these, really. If you want to go, leave a comment saying what movie you'd like to see! EDIT: We're seeing Los Angeles Plays Itself at 6:00 on Sunday. See you all there!

Really casual bike ride (or walk) + lunch

How about a pretty short, slow, sweet little bike ride on the Minuteman trail (or, a walk option instead)? And some lunch? OK, last chance, you 'Maybes!' If no one but cocoagirl and me are there at 10:30, and no one has switched to 'Attending,' then she and I may head elsewhere instead of to Spy Pond. But if anyone does switch to 'Attending,' then we'll see you at Spy Pond as planned. So, if you'll be there, switch over your response! [more inside]
