Hi All, I've recently moved to Pittsburgh and wanted to test the MeFi waters out here. I'm here for a grad program but other than my little school cohort, I don't know anyone in the city. I'd love to organize a low key meet and greet, maybe a Friday evening at Arsenal Cider House? I'm open to suggestions. Mostly I'd just love to say hi to my new pgh neighbors!
Does anyone want to come to my house and eat homemade ice cream and maybe bring some homemade ice cream too? [more inside]
Let's send off the summer in style with Burmese and brain freeze. That's right, it's YET ANOTHER RICK'S RUN. We're going to go with Wednesday the 28th, as most seem to be okay with that.
I've wondered what meet-ups are like, but there has never been one in my area (Saskatoon) as far as I know. Still, I can't be the only mefite in Saskatoon... [more inside]
Southern-softie Mefites unite! Train strikes permitting! MEATliquor, Brighton, Friday 7th Oct, 6pm.
Now that autumn* is here, let's get back into the swing of trivia! Y'all come out and join the intrepid MeFite team for Geeks Who Drink trivia at Little J's Bar. Arrive early for the best chance at parking! (8:00 is trivia start time, I normally show around 7:00 to grab a table.) (*for varying values of autumn; this is Houston, after all)
Hey everyone! We're planning a little "meet your fellow Calgary MeFites" night, over board games! Join us if you can, should be great.

So, I'll be making my way all the way up the West Coast pretty soon and Vancouver is my final stopover. Any Mefites want to meet up sometime on that Friday or Saturday? [more inside]
I'm taking a trip up the West Coast and was wondering if any Mefites want to meet up! I've only been to LA once before and saw all the touristy Hollywood stuff (and had In-N-Out :D), so I think someone else will probably have to propose the place/activity . . . [more inside]

Remember the 11 bus? Were you mad they discontinued it? Well, it's back! Temporarily, anyway, and a number of bars along the route have teamed up for 11 on 11: a beer explorer trek to bump up ridership.

My husband and I will be staying in the North Beacon Hill area for a few days on our way home from our trip to Alaska and have never been to Seattle before. Would anyone be interested in a meetup? We're totally open to suggestions! August 11 or 12 would probably be the best since we aren't traveling those days, though brunch on Saturday could also be an option.
Meeting at 1:00pm at the Sharpe Edge on Penn Ave. Any Pittsburgh folks signed up for Hillary's rally Saturday? Interested in meeting up for a beer before or after? [more inside]

I'll be in Boston this weekend, visiting with my boyfriend, and we'd like to do Boda Borg, but with just the two of us, we're one short of the minimum team number (3-5 people per team).

Hey guys, I'm aware there just was a meetup last month, but was wondering if anyone wants another now in April? [more inside]
I know there are a bunch of expectant MeFi parents in the DC area (and maybe some recent parents?) so I thought it would be nice if we could have a meetup to keep ourselves sane(ish) and get a chance to check in with other intelligent, thoughtful adults going through the same thing. Everyone who wants to come is welcome, just know that the conversation might center around, like, babies and whatnot. I expect this to be this Saturday afternoon, April 16th. [more inside]
Hey! Saturday April 16! Me and likeatoaster and chaoticgood (and non-mefite Mr. Oticgood) are driving from Louisville to Cincinnati! Plans include Jungle Jim's in the late morning (then maybe grabbing food at Findlay) and then Rhinegeist at 3 (possibly followed by other breweries, Purple Bridge, or other downtown attractions). If you're a Cincinnatian who wants to join before 3, you can email me on Saturday (email's in profile) to see where we are at any given time!
After reading not_on_display's genius post about the Museum of Jurassic Technology, I realized it's been too long since I've been. Time for a meetup! [more inside]
So captivepredator and I were talking about a pre-meetup meetup on Saturday before the Writers with Drinks event. If you can't go to WwD or if you just want EVEN MORE Mefite time, come hang out with us at Borderlands. (It's just a few blocks away from the main meetup!) [more inside]
We have retreated like the gathering wave: next week let us fall on our foes and smother them in foamy facts.
Much like winter, this week Geeks Who Drink trivia is back at The Pub. Get out your coats and meet us at 8pm on Wednesday. Brr.
