Hey all! I'm putting on an air hockey tournament to raise money for the American Civil Liberties Union. The event is called Give A Puck! Beginners are welcome -- in fact, most of us are beginners! There will be beer, prizes, and a speaker from the ACLU to talk about all the great work they’re doing. Bring your friends! All proceeds go to the ACLU. [more inside]

Second Saturday Second City Stand-Up Sanity Check Committee Or SSSCSSCC*

So there's no way I would have made it through the last few post-election days without the support of my friends and family, especially seeing so many reactions that amounted to"WHAT CAN I DO?" and last night I was struck by all the youth hitting the streets, but, even as I was there, I wondered "what can I, an older person out of the activist game, do?" Here's what I came up with: [more inside]

Big Damn Heros!

I've been obsessed with RPGs since high school but only fairly recently started actually playing them. Now I find I'd like to run a game from time to time and I thought mefites would make a good group of people to play with! [more inside]

Cambridge is kicking our ass, Portland. We need more meetups.

I was thinking we should have a game day/evening here in Portland again. Any suggestions for days/times/locales? Just cards, like that one time that devolved into cards against humanity? Board games? Which also usually devolves into cards against humanity. How do we feel about just playing cards against humanity, or do we not want to do that at all? [more inside]

I would like to meet some London mefites in April.

I moved to London last year but I have not managed to meet up with any London mefites yet, I feel like it would be fun to go to a pub and meet you guys. Perhaps we can bring board games or card games to play? The Penderel's Oak is a pub(wetherspoons) in the centre that I know is nice and big - would anyone like to have a london mefi meetup there next month? Edit: OK, 5th of April Then, I will bring a sign with a mefi logo on it and will be there from 7 till whenever. Please bring games if you have them. :)

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.

Fun in London

Hi! I've got this train ticket to London burning a hole in my pocket. It's for Saturday, July 7th and I should arrive around 12:30. What say we do a meetup that day/evening? Who's in and what shall we do? Update: meetup back to proposed. I still have a train ticket, but can reschedule it for another weekend (granted I make the change by the 7th). Any Londonders wanna meet up?
