The wonderful starlybri was kind enough to organize a recent NYC meet up, and some of us got to talking about how they used to happen more frequently in the city. So overhauser has kindly secured a spot at Lucky's in the East Village for us to gather on Saturday, December 9. The time will be 2-6pm. There will be cheap drinks, and we'd like to do this pot luck style with food! [more inside]
Drinks, food and art. I will be in Richmond for First Friday and want to explore the heck out of it on foot. Lemaire at the Jefferson Hotel has fancy happy hour in the bar from 4 to 7 pm. Appetizers 3 for $20, wine and drink specials. The Lantern Parade starts at 7 pm. There are light sculptures around the Arts District. If there's later night blues music that would be even more swell. Come wander with me. [more inside]
Work will bring me to your fair town on October 24th and 25th. Having never been before, I would enjoy finding a fun place to drink the delicious beer of your land on Wednesday October 25th.

I'm staying at the Omni and enjoy walking but can grab a cab or whatever also.

If you don't want to cry, you can help me celebrate some (obviously unrelated) good news.
We're coming up on that national tradition known as Super Bowl Sunday. In the past we've gotten together to play games rather than watch the game, but there was always something missing which prevented us from achieving the full on ignore experience: the actual football game in the background being completely ignored.

Peninsula people! We seem to have this really bad habit of only meeting up when someone is coming in from out of town. Whaddya say we break that pattern and meet up just for the heck of it? May is good for me. I'll go anywhere on the Peninsula but bonus points for Caltrain-friendly. Y'all feel free to propose specifics. Dive bar? Food trucks? Other? Let's do this.
