It's 2014, time to resolve to answer more random questions about Dairy Queen shake flavors and the Constitution. As per our last thread, Tommy Doyle's Harvard Square is no more, so we are trying out Joe Sent Me in Cambridge. Trivia is on WEDNESDAY this time. [more inside]
It's 2014. Time to finally plan the meetup I've been thinking about for years. I live in North Attleboro, about 30 minutes north of Providence, and am willing to host something in my neck of the woods or the general vicinity. At a restaurant? A bar? A library? An abandoned factory down by the river? I'm definitely looking for feedback, suggestions, creative co-hosts... [more inside]

If you are bored and not sure what to do on New Year's Eve here is what some of us are doing! [more inside]
We haven't been there in a while although it gets mentioned now and then in an "oh yeah, we should do that again" way. And so we are.
Inspired by this AskMe plus my upcoming trip to Reno on MLK weekend, I thought I'd see if there were enough folks locally to pull together a meetup. [more inside]
Imperial Lanes on Rainier Avenue will be open and near empty on Christmas, and, for that matter, New Year's Day. I and some friends will be there on both days. We had a blast at the last bowling meetup we had. All of you at loose ends this Chistmas evening are welcome to join us. And ditto for New Year's Day, as well...

A spin off from the other New Years meetup thread. Things that are known: wanting to go to the steam whistles at Pratt; wanting to eat, drink, and be merry beforehand. Things that are unknown: Where and when to eat, drink, and be merry. [more inside]

Proposing a meetup of MeFites in Israel, sometime in early December. I've got a few ideas for places in Tel Aviv, not on Saturday so we don't have the issue of no public transportation. Who's in?
We're trying something a little different this month. We will start at Barcade, where another gaming meetup is happening. If we need more space, we'll move over to Frankford Hall after a while. [more inside]
WHAT: All the stuff people have generously donated over here needs to be wrapped before it's delivered to to the host organization for the 45-and-counting kids and teens MetaFilter is sponsoring. Looks like a fine opportunity for a meet-up! [more inside]

I'm going to be visiting family in the Portland area between November 27th and December 3rd, and I would love to gather sometime toward the end of my trip. A few weeks ago in MetaChat, Lutoslawski told me about a bitchin' sounding men's underwear emporium called UnderU4Men in downtown Southwest Portland. While we don't have to all buy men's underwear at the same time, it would be cool to time that visit with some mefi-jam-packed local beers and cocktail magic drinkies out on the town. I've not been to Portland in a few years, so please suggest some fabulous places for our extended temporal collision. Suggestion of potential activities beyond mere ingression is of course also welcomed. Looking forward to it! [more inside]
I'm in Marseille working on a project for November 14 to 25, and curious to know if there are any metafilters there, for a meet-up or pastis-up?

I'll be in town for a conference and would like to reacquaint myself with Charleston. Being a gin fan, I absolutely must try The Gin Joint. We could meet for cocktails and either have dinner there or another spot within walking distance. If anyone wants to meet earlier in the day I'm also interested in checking out more of the town, perhaps taking in an exhibit or event. [more inside]
It's been a while since we've had an Edmonton meetup. Let's meet up December 3rd, 6pm at Urban Diner in Garneau.

Since I am going to be in town for several days for a conference, and since one of the AskMe recommended things to do downtown is go to the Majestic Theatre, I have tickets for the symphony on Saturday, November 9. Would anybody be interested in getting together for dinner downtown around 6-ish? Since y'all know the area and I don't, I'm open to suggestions for your favorite places downtown (I will not have a vehicle).
Hi AZ mefites! As I promised in the last Phoenix meetup thread, I'll be visiting Mr. Nat in Tempe next week. I'd like to meet up with y'all while I'm there. [more inside]
Have we not had an NYC dim sum meetup since February 2012?! This shall not stand. Chinatown's The Golden Unicorn has been conducive to good meetups before, but, would people like to try Pacificana in Brooklyn's Chinatown for a change? I went there once with family and thought the dim sum was more varied than Golden Unicorn's, but the wait time for a table can be long. -- EDIT - Manhattan wins this round, for Saturday 11/9 at 11am.
Is it that time again? I think it is - time to schedule another game meetup! [more inside]
I'm going to be in DC on Friday November 1 for a meeting (which just got finally confirmed, even though everyone in the department I contract for has been furloughed recently and so it hasn't had any organizers...) and I'll be staying overnight. Wondering if any mefites want to meet up for dinner and/or drinks? I'm staying in Dupont Circle, but happy to head anywhere. Update: we have added a restaurant venue.
Trying to organize a quick meetup for 20-21 October! Calling all Mefites in Rome! [more inside]
Yeah, November. Because all my weekends are booked until November, which is ridiculous, but anyway...who wants to get a game day in before the holidays? UPDATE: Confirmed for November 10 [more inside]
