Hello everyone! I'm going to be in LA for the first time in August, and I'm going to be there for 2 years pursuing a masters degree. My first priority, of course, is to meet Angeleno Mefites! I was thinking of going to Revolutionario: North African Tacos, because it looks yum! + cheap + good for groups. Also vegan/vegetarian friendly.
Hello! I will be visiting Indianapolis and am looking for dinner company at The North End BBQ & Moonshine on Monday, March 21st. [more inside]
Hello Charleston MeFites! I'm currently planning a trip to your lovely city from February 24-27 (leaving in the morning on the 27th), primarily with the goal of Eating All The Food, and I wondered if anyone wanted to have a meetup.

So, we're going to be in Seattle for the Rush show on Sunday July 19. Thought it might be nice to meet a few Seattle MeFites before the show. So, let's meet at the 5-Points Cafe at 4pm on Sunday July 19 for hangout and chat and dinner and drinks before the show! It's not a fancy place, but it's fun and relaxing and is walking distance from both our hotel and Key Arena. We'd love to connect with Seattle MeFites!
We'll be going to Medaterra on Connecticut at 6:45 on Saturday for dinner. Join us and celebrate an out-of-town MeFite! [more inside]

I've been thinking of having a potluck dinner, international theme. Who's in?

In town Fri 11/8-Mon 11/11, thinking about a Saturday night dinner or drinks (or both) thing. Anyone interested? Sorry for the short notice. [more inside]
I'll be in town for a conference and would like to reacquaint myself with Charleston. Being a gin fan, I absolutely must try The Gin Joint. We could meet for cocktails and either have dinner there or another spot within walking distance. If anyone wants to meet earlier in the day I'm also interested in checking out more of the town, perhaps taking in an exhibit or event. [more inside]
Since I am going to be in town for several days for a conference, and since one of the AskMe recommended things to do downtown is go to the Majestic Theatre, I have tickets for the symphony on Saturday, November 9. Would anybody be interested in getting together for dinner downtown around 6-ish? Since y'all know the area and I don't, I'm open to suggestions for your favorite places downtown (I will not have a vehicle).
I'm going to be in DC on Friday November 1 for a meeting (which just got finally confirmed, even though everyone in the department I contract for has been furloughed recently and so it hasn't had any organizers...) and I'll be staying overnight. Wondering if any mefites want to meet up for dinner and/or drinks? I'm staying in Dupont Circle, but happy to head anywhere. Update: we have added a restaurant venue.
I'm in London for 20 hours. Meet me for dinner?

...time to circle the wagons, see friends you haven't seen in a while, let them know that they're important to you, and maybe even make new friends in the process. We've lost one of our own, and the best way to deal with that is to be together. [more inside]

So, Koi Palace is the Best Chinese Restaurant in the US according to some dude. And it's in Daly City, just a short hop from San Francisco. Tuesday, 6:30pm to beat the long wait for tables. I have six yeas so far, ten and we can do a fixed price menu (see menu link in discussion).
Anybody want to meet up for a weekday dinner in Alexandria Va.? I was thinking most likely on a Tuesday, Wednesday or Friday, at either Shooter McGee's on Duke Street or Paradiso Italiano on Franconia Road. Other places in Alexandria's west end considered, but not on a weekend, and not in Old Town --- trying to avoid too much hassle with parking and crowds!
valkyryn and I are coming to Boston July 26-27. Let's meet up! [more inside]

Hey, New York City, Let's have dinner in Astoria Friday April 15th at Mojave at 7:30 p.m. Show up on time so we can get a proper sized table! Afterwards, we can stroll over to Martha's for some delicious desserts. And then perhaps karaoke at Albatross? [more inside]
I figure since I consider Thanksgiving to be a great excuse for me to go nuts cooking anyway, I'd see if there are any local Mefites who are - like me - at loose ends family-wise and have no other plans for Turkey Day. My apartment can probably accommodate about 8 people comfortably, but if the response is greater than that and someone has the means (and willingness) to host a larger gathering, that's cool too. We can figure out the exact logistics and time but what I had in mind was an afternoon+early evening potluck sort of thing.
