Hello Charleston MeFites! I'm currently planning a trip to your lovely city from February 24-27 (leaving in the morning on the 27th), primarily with the goal of Eating All The Food, and I wondered if anyone wanted to have a meetup. Edit: I picked a time, date, and location (semi-arbitrarily, so I can be flexible); let me know if you can make it!
So, I think there's a handful of MeFi folks in Belgium. Would anyone be interested in a meet up around the end of February or the beginning of March? [more inside]

I'll be appearing as a guest on So That Happened, a live talk show at ImprovBoston, Thursday, January 28th at 9:30pm. I have 10 free tickets I can offer to MeFites, so if you're a relatively solid yes, please send me (via MeMail or the email in my profile) an email address under which you can be registered for the guest list. I went and saw this show a couple months ago, and it was lots of fun, but it's always nice to have friendly faces in the crowd, so I hope you can join me.

Hey Hoosiers! How about an afternoon of bowling with your fellow Mefites? I had in mind the Expo Bowl in Beech Grove- sort of a throwback kind of meetup. Anyone interested? Bowling, beer, and family-style fun! If we get enough folks we can get two lanes & really look pro :)
I'm a prodigal MeFite, in town for a bit of time, and wanted to see if any MeFites lived here these days. ***~~UPDATE~~*** MeFites do live here, so I'm confirming location and time of meetup. [more inside]

(The description you are about to read is real. Only the questions have been changed to prevent an investigation.) This is the city... Houston, Texas. It was Wednesday, December 2nd. It was chilly in Houston. We were working the Geeks who Drink trivia detail. It was seven p.m. when we got to Sherlock's Baker Street Pub in Rice Village. The tables were full. Perhaps we should have arrived earlier, like 6:30 or so. [more inside]
The Blue Frog is shutting down in January and there's a pretty good chance the owners will have alienated the staff so much that everyone will throw in the towel before then, so this might be the last First Wednesday. If you've ever been, you'll want to join us this time. If you've never been, you must join us this time. [more inside]

I'm just wondering if any other Mefites are going to or are interested in catching Laura Marling at Martyrs on Sunday the 22nd. I have yet to meet any of you cool Chicago people and I figured this might be a good opportunity to do that. Tickets here if you're interested. I've not seen her live yet, but she's really fantastic. Just checked to make sure there's still some on sale and as of now there are.
I recently moved to your beautiful city and I don't really know anyone. Would anyone like to hang out with me this month? [more inside]
Going to Disneyland is mostly about having a great capacity to stand in lines. Standing in line with people that would be really interesting to talk to sounds like a win to me. Standing in line with beer in California Adventure land with interesting people would be....magical. [more inside]
