The candy corn is in the supermarket, the pumpkin spice is back in the coffee shops, and the buses are clogged with students, so that must mean it's fall.

Hi everyone! I was thinking it was high time we did another meetup, and I was thinking maybe we could do it at this new lovely bar that just opened in my neighborhood. I'm talking about Tick Tock, which opened maybe two weeks ago. It's got lots of space, a good selection, and is right next to Steve's Hot Dogs.
So, I've arrived in Madison (thanks for all the helpful answers to my Ask!) and I was wondering if anyone wanted to have a meet-up over a beer or two.

Update: Thursday, 18 September, 4:30, at The Mason (416 S Park Street). I'll update next Thursday with how you can recognize me.
Hi! We'll be meeting up (some of us for the first time in Portland!) at Great Lost Bear on Saturday, 10/4, at 4 pm. We'll be bringing our one-year-old daughter, and hope you'll bring your young kids as well! (Of course you're welcome to bring your old kids but they probably don't want to be seen with the likes of us.) Food, beer, whatever...it's going to be superb.

I've been really out of the MetaFilter loop and would like to fall back in again. There must be some MeFites still here in Philly and I would love to hang out with them.

This is kind of our last time together before he leaves to join the Army. I put Cambridge, MA in the location field,; this is not to rule out any surrounding communities or states. Built in limitation of the location algorithm, I am told, on good authority :)
