Our last little meetup went well, so we might as well tempt fate and try it again. We knocked around a few ideas over beers last month, lets hash them out in the comments and see what happens. Next Update: We have a new plan! [more inside]
Edited: Given the problematic elements with Stand up to Racism (please see links in this thread), I'd like to find a better way to take a stand against structures of violence — one that is inclusive, looks out for survivors and creates a safe space for everybody. I've edited this post title, new copy is in brackets. I've moved the original post copy below here, kept for posterity. --- Original post: >Would anybody like to meet up for and/or after the March Against Racism National demonstration on March 18, 2017 in London? >This Stand Up to Racism Demo is for UN Anti-Racism Day. Other UK rallies are happening same day in Glasgow and Cardiff. [more inside]
Hi gang, Hope the holidays were good for all! Our last proposed meetup ending up falling through as it was difficult to pin down a night when everyone was around - thought I would attempt a 2nd kick at the can and see if we can do a winter gathering of sorts. How does Friday, Feb 10 sound? Just for the sake of lobbing a 1st suggestion into the pool. Hope the new year has been kind to everyone so far & looking forward to seeing everyone again!
(except that it's gonna be on the 3rd Saturday again maybe) Because of the holiday weekend and conflicting events, I'm suggesting we move this month's event to the Third Saturday. However, I'm open to other routes. NOTE: Please see the changed location and the fixed time; garlic has generously volunteered to host this month and I'm generously taking him up on that offer.
I'm popping down to NYC for a visit and propose drinks. [more inside]
I will devote one day this weekend to sewing pussyhats and thought I'd see if anyone wanted to join! I don't know how to knit or crochet, but yarn-folk are definitely welcome. [more inside]
January is here, so, ferret branca and I want to have dim sum with mefites again, at delicious Pacificana in Brooklyn. The more the merrier (and the smaller the final tab, usually), who's in? (previously) (moved to February so as not to coincide with Chinese New Year's Day) [more inside]
MAYBES: Text me for address if you don't have it and decide to come. Five ten two eighty two sixty one twenty. Hey folks, I plan to make a big pot of soup in hopes that local MeFites from the greater SF Bay Area will show up for a late lunch to converse and, if they like, also do a little sewing (I will be mending a few things) or a little crafting or a little colouring or simply hanging out. [more inside]
House MCNamara is still out of commission--we'll be meeting at the crush family compound. Contact me (email in profile or via MeMail) or MCMikeNamara for actual address. [more inside]
I'm in NYC until Saturday morning for RWC 2017, and should be free Thursday/Friday evening, the 5th/6th January. Anyone from the Internet want to meet up and hang out? [more inside]
Join us for a board game night! [more inside]
Well, I'm just in town for a couple weeks and recalled the last time I was in town for a couple weeks and had a lovely time at a meetup (many years ago). So we're meeting at the Alibi Room, at 6pm on Thursday. I'll be outside at 6 wearing a purple scarf and if you come a little later we'll try to be downstairs. I'll post an update if not.
So Second Saturday is upon us sooner than I realized. And we're still getting together and chatting about our activism plans again like we did last month. However, there's a slight change in plans... [more inside]
It doesn't look like one has ever been proposed, but would any me-fites be interested in a meetup somewhere in Honolulu? [more inside]
The idea has been floated before but never got beyond a few "we should do this" comments. Is there any interest in a Syracuse NY meetup to be held after the holidays? Any thoughts on where or when? [more inside]
I'll be in Portland on business the week of December 5th and would like a chance to meet-up with some fellow MeFis for a beer and food one night. [more inside]
Want to see the most famous lighting display in the nation? Then come to the historic Mission Inn in Riverside for the Festival Of Lights! [more inside]
I moved to Leeds a few months ago and now seems like a good a time as any to see if there are any Loiner MeFites kicking about. Doesn't have to be anything too elaborate, and I realise that the hectic holiday season is also looming so I would be happy to organise something for after the start of the new year. Any takers?
Mr. Fig and I will be in Beijing Nov 18 - 26 , with very little planned to do. I thought I'd throw this out here to see if any Mefites would be interested in meeting up anywhere in this timeframe!
Hi all. I'm visiting my brother in London the weekend of the 25-27 November, and was wondering if anyone would be around for a couple of hours on the Friday night to say hello and perhaps drink some gins with me? [more inside]
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]
I'm in Perth for a couple of days and could meet up on the evening of Thursday 24th November. Are there any local MeFites interested?
Let's celebrate ourselves and gather to eat some good food. No idea where or when, but we haven't had a meetup in way too long, and now seems like the perfect time. ABQ? SF? Both? More?
Not sure what to say at this juncture in history, but I'd like to suggest a meetup, since I could use a drink or three. Join me and we can talk about the election, or not. [more inside]
Ok well that election was a shitshow. Anyone in the Portland/Southern Maine area want to get together December 10th and have a lowkey cheerup chat/snack? [more inside]
Hey Toronto MeFites, it's been a while. What say you to a November 19 (Saturday) meetup, say around 3:00 in the afternoon? [more inside]
Looks like there hasn't been a Denver meetup in a while, and I'm new in town... so let's do this thing! How about we grab a beer? Suggestions welcome. [more inside]
Relaxed, end-of-week-meetup where west coast Mefite meets east coast Mefites. [more inside]
Hey, let's meet and swap stories about life in general and surviving hurricane Matthew in general! [more inside]
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.
I know this is ridiculously last-minute, but I'll be at a loose end in Portland, Maine this Friday. [more inside]
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]
We've had two Palo Alto ice cream events so far this summer thanks to koroshiya. How about a third? [more inside]
I will be in New York City for a few days at the end of September. I would be pleased to hoist a glass with local mefites. [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. Join us for a full day of stupidity as we try to hit all 11 in one day because we are idiots. [more inside]
Let's overcome our reserved reputation and meet each other IRL! [more inside]
Hoosiers, time to get together and quaff a cold one and tell outrageous stories and have fun. [more inside]
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]
After the Lesher Center/Lamplighters Music Theatre's 2pm performance of the Mikado, Mr Pocahontas and I will be walking over to Pomegranate...let's make it a Meetup! [more inside]
Residents of the north of Wangland represent! [more inside]
