After having so much fun at the recent Spaceship Endeavour! meetup, I thought I'd propose a similar venture to one of our grand LA art museums,
choice and date TBD. UPDATE 5/4: It looks as if LACMA on June 1st will work out well for most. [more inside]
Peninsula people! We seem to have this really bad habit of only meeting up when someone is coming in from out of town. Whaddya say we break that pattern and meet up just for the heck of it? May is good for me. I'll go anywhere on the Peninsula but bonus points for Caltrain-friendly. Y'all feel free to propose specifics. Dive bar? Food trucks? Other? Let's do this.
There will be: food! games! music! probably drinking! definitely fire on the beach! camaraderie! et cetera et cetera. Spreadsheet! [more inside]
I'd like to have a picnic at Roxhill Park and hang out while kids play on the (exciting, new) playground. (There's also a skatepark, a large field, and a marsh walk.) Who wants to come hang out on a non-pouring-rain Saturday afternoon? (There's only a 10% chance of rain next Saturday, at least right now, so maybe then?) Update: let's meet at noon on Saturday, 3 May. I'll still be there if there's light rain.
Well, actually, it's a couple of nights away, but still.... Anyway, a trip to Western Canada has suddenly developed a Friday-evening-shaped gap, so any mefites care for a meetup in Edmonton? I am staying just off Whyte Ave and will be carless, so somewhere in Old Strathcona would suit me well. Sorry for the short notice, but I figured it was worth a shot. Friday the 25th is when I am tossing it out for. Does The Pourhouse suit people?
I'll be in Cape Town May Day weekend -- May 1-3 -- and just thought I'd toss out a possible meetup. There doesn't seem to be a ton of South Africa activity on IRL as a rule and I'm not even sure if there are any MeFites in Cape Town, but if anyone is out there and wants to get together for a beer, I'd love to do it. My schedule those three evenings will be pretty wide open.
Put down those Peeps and put on your thinking caps and head on down to Joe Sent Me, Cambridge, Wednesday at 7:30, for Geeks Who Drink trivia. Who knows where we'll be sitting this time!
Divined by radio will be in DC so we are having a meetup at Busboys and Poets on Thursday, May 8th at 7pm. Please come so we can hang out! [more inside]
This month's entry in the "Sunday Movies at the Palace with Lin-Manuel Miranda" is the original 1933 King Kong. Doors open at 4pm, pre-show entertainment by the Palace Youth Drum Ensemble at 4:30, Lin-Manuel's pre-show Q&A with John Landis at 5pm, then the movie itself at 5:30. No charge at the door, but this is part of the UPCA's push to raise enough money for a new movie screen, so they will no doubt be pushing for donations throughout the pre-show.
This is a Hoosier Meetup Stub entry- feel free to add/suggest locations. We've settled on June 1st, now lets find a place to park! Fishers? Broadripple? Greenwood? Downtown?
Beer! Free party! 1-10pm! [more inside]

I will be on Vancouver Island in a month. In a tentative feelers for a meetup last year, I suggested the totally apt FIAMO in Victoria for a meetup. Does Saturday May 3rd suit anybody to meet there?
I'll be in Vienna April 6-19 (with a quick side trip to Graz around the 16th-18th). Anyone interested in getting together for coffee/drinks/general fun? In my eagerness, I posted here a few months ago and Moritz suggested April 12, but it was probably a little too early to make a firm plan at that point. So trying again now!
We won Pacific Standard's pub quiz a while ago and never redeemed our prize, a $200 party at the bar. Join us and drink free (within reason)!

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. :)
Sometimes you want to go... [more inside]
Hey fellow MeFites. It's been a while - 4 years, almost! - since we've had a Glasgow meetup. I'm going to be in Glasgow over the next week. Anyone fancy a meetup between, say, Monday March 10th and Saturday March 15th? [more inside]

Just moved back to Northampton and I would love to meet some people I didn't attend kindergarten with! I can see that the last meetup in this area was pretty epic--would anyone be up for something more casual, like trivia at Popcorn Noir on 3/5 or 3/12? Or board games at the Roost on those nights? Edit: Popcorn Noir it is, as it is the special International Women's Day edition and we can't miss that!
Been wanting to try Mission Dolores in Park Slope and I see they have a beer week special. What say you, Mefites?
I will be in Atlanta next weekend (March 1 - 2), and as suggested in my AskMeFi 'Where to eat/drink' question, would love to have a meetup! [more inside]
With the Olympics comes people saying "hey, Curling looks strange / fun / silly, how do I try it?" Well, there's only a few months left before the clubs close for the summer, so the time to learn is now. I've rented ice at High Park Curling Club, which gives us two hours of late night practice & play time. Interested? [more inside]
As discussed last night, we are going to show joan cusack the second what proper Dim Sum is like before she leaves for Arkansas. Rol San on Spadina at noon on Sunday, Feb 23rd. Join us! [more inside]
7 pm. If people don't like the time/place let me know and I'll consider changing it, we'll also hope it's still open.
I've been memailing mediareport about it, and we both agree that we need to have another meetup in March. I was thinking Gourmet Kingdom would be a great option because it's quiet during the week (meaning not quiet on Fri/Sat), it has a challenging/intimidating/exciting/fun Szechuan menu (attn: vegetarians: the braised eggplant is amazing!), and it's in the Chapel Hill/Carrboro part of the triangle, thus satisfying the "our turn" part of the rotation. There's ample parking, and plenty of nearby watering holes for afterwards should we want to maintain conversational momentum like last time in Raleigh. Would any Thursdays in March be bad for anyone? What Thursdays work best for you in March? What Thursdays work worst for you in March? Why wouldn't you want to meet up on a Thursday? What is it about those damned Thursdays? Do you know anybody named Thursday? Are they coming? Would they be embarrassed?
I had such fun on my first ever Phoenix Mefite-meetup in January that I now put forth to you a meetup in the glorious region of Tempe, AZ. Hope to see you there! [more inside]
Anyone want to get drinks this Saturday evening? At Tequila Bookworm at 7? We'll be there!
