Hey fellow Ohioans, I just moved here a month ago and would love to meet some fellow members. I am in Old North Columbus and would be willing to meet anywhere in the city. I looked at past meet-ups and it looks like its been a while since the last one so let's get together over food/drink and talk.
Friday night, Peter Chang's in Rockville Town Center. 7:00. I'll call for a reservation on January 27, so let me know if you're in by then! If you want to do something afterwards, let me know! [more inside]
Hello Louisville peeps. I assume most of you have nearish family/friends to hang with on this upcoming holiday, but in case you don't: Greg Nog and I are hosting a Straysgiving at our place on Thanksgiving Day. We will cook everything and it will be delicious and also we have lots of boardgames and Bob's Burgers Thanksgiving songs and all you have to do is bring yourself and your appetite (for destruction). If there is any interest, I will follow up with our address (the currently-listed address is just for Shelby Park, our lovely neighborhood).
Cortex and Secretariat will be breezing through RTP the weekend of August 22, and so we're going to meet at Mesa Latin Kitchen on Sunday at 4 PM. [more inside]
Our regular Brooklyn meetups resume at the well-regarded drinking establishment Whole Foods, with a rooftop bar overlooking the scenic Gowanus Canal.
Hey Columbus! The family is leaving this weekend and I'm alone Friday and Saturday night. Anyone available for a something? [more inside]
Spring is here, time to barbecue! As usual I'll be smoking some combination of meat, fish, and/or chicken (smoked wings!); bring your choice of vegetarian options/side dishes/desserts/beverages alcoholic and non-. [more inside]
February 7: Dinner at Etete Restaurant at 7 PM with museuming and wandering during the day! Hi DC-area mefites! I'm flying into Washington, DC on February 6 and leaving on February 8 - want to get together for food/museums/drinks/other DC area things sometime that weekend? [more inside]
I had so much fun meeting you all last time I was in the Bay Area, I want to do it again! I'll be back in your neck of the woods the week of May 6. But possibly only available weekdays. SF, Sacramento, or Davis weeknight meetup, with food and/or beverages?
I'm home this week and looking for an excuse to come to NYC and hang out with mefites. Would anyone be up for a drink, a meal, or a show on Wednesday (26) or Thusday (27)? Update: Pencilled in est. 1986 Wine Bar/Lounge on Thursday the 27th [more inside]
Update: we have confirmed brunch plans for Sunday, Dec. 30! Rosamunde in Mission (link above). [more inside]
Open invitation to any Portland Mefites who for whatever reason aren't planning to spend the holiday otherwise occupied visiting or being visited by relatives, and are interested in getting together during the weekend of Dec. 22nd - or perhaps 29th? - for a relaxed and calorie-filled nondenominational dinner. I'd be willing to host, as well as roast or smoke meat of some sort. People could bring side-dishes / desserts / drinks - you know, the usual. We can toast the season, have some fun, and avoid sitting home alone in the dark drinking box wine and feeling maudlin and sorry for ourselves! Yay! [more inside]
Hola LA MeFi, We're meeting up Bigfoot West on Thursday, April 5th. They have a happy hour between 7 and 9, so we're gonna start the meet somewhere in there and keep going if we prove to be interesting enough company. I'll probably pop in around 8/8:30 and I have this bright pink sweatshirt that has inadvertently become my trademark and you can find me that way. There's a kind of corner booth in the back right that tends to empty-ish even when busy, so it might make sense to try and say Hi there. Any Q's, just send me a MeMail!
