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]

This Saturday, northernish Greenpoint, near the Greenpoint Ave stop on the G.
It's been ages since we had an Austin meetup. Let's get together at a local pub or coffeehouse. I'll add date/time/location when we have a consensus. ETA: We have settled on February 9, 2-4 pm, at the Dog and Duck.
Good lord, I seem to have up and moved cross-country to a place where I know only one person! Help me feel like this was a good decision by meeting up with me and showing me what awesome folks Maine Mefites are. Anything West End or Old Port works for me, I know a few places for drinks/dinner but would love to try someplace new. I'm going to toss out Jan 23-26 as open days just to get things started. Edit: we've settled on Saturday 2/1, daytime.
It's about time for another Phoenix meetup, y'all! [more inside]
During last night's quiz meetup it was noted that it's been a while since we've had a non-quiz-based meetup to simply socialize and catch up. We're willing to host again at our place, but recognize that holding it in Missouri City does place a bit of a travel imposition on some. So, lets start a discussion: when shall we meet, and if not in MoCity, where?
oh yeah! and I discussed having a dim sum meetup at Pacificana for our collective birthday. **see update below** (still same time and place. Please confirm attendance.) [more inside]

Did this holiday season bring you new games you'd like to try out? Or a tragic lack of opportunities to play games that you'd like to make up for? Get your fix at the Board Room in Dupont Circle! [more inside]
Let's indulge in the over-the-top, all-you-can-eat pierogi and sausage fest at Avondale restaurant Staropolska. Dinner is brought out family style in huge, sharable bowls. No one has ever left hungry from a Polish restaurant. [more inside]
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]

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...

Sorry about that. Bar is still good.
