Join us in our continued domination of the weekly George & Dragon Pub Quiz, which apparently is made up nearly entirely of MeFites, anyway.
We have retreated like the gathering wave: next week let us fall on our foes and smother them in foamy facts.
In which we get too cocky, beanplate our answers, and lose by a furlong. JK JK LOL we'll win again.
In this next installment, we resolve to no longer talk ourselves out of correct answers.
Join us for episode five, in which MetaFilter continues its dominance of the G&D pub quiz scene.
In which we avenge last week's loss. [more inside]

So, let's meet at the 5-Points Cafe at 4pm on Sunday July 19 for hangout and chat and dinner and drinks before the show! It's not a fancy place, but it's fun and relaxing and is walking distance from both our hotel and Key Arena. We'd love to connect with Seattle MeFites!

A client and friend of mine has a documentary premiere in STIFF (Seattle's True Independent Film Festival or Seattle's Transmedia and Independent Film Festival) on May 7 at Grand Illusion Cinema. The film is 'Witness Bahrain', about the Arab Spring. I'll be there and the director, Jen Marlowe, will be there for Q&A after the film. Would love for mefites to join us. Link to buy tickets.

This will be my first time in Seattle, and I'm considering a move there, and I only know about 3 (albeit awesome) people there. My preference is for the evening/happy hour of Thursday March 19 but I could do any evening except Saturday the 21st, if there's another day that works well for more people. [more inside]
I am taking a long trip down the west coast before nursing school eats me alive and locks me in Philly for a year. First stop: Seattle, from April 14th-20th!

[more inside]
Damn it, Christmas. Always stealing my thunder. Let's have dinner + sauce as you want it on my birthday, 12/26. I'd love to meet some mefites too! We're eating at the wonderful Kingfish Cafe in North Capitol Hill with reservations at 8pm. Afterwards, we'll go to the Unicorn, The Hideout or Rockbox Karaoke (whichever is least crowded). I look forward to seeing whoever can come on this little notice and around this stupid holiday -- and to getting a more solid group of Seattle meetup people in general! (Please no "maybe" answers - I will need to change the reservation.) There will be cake.
I'm planning on moving to the area next Spring, and this is my research trip. I've wanted to do this since 1977, so it's long overdue, and I'm ridiculously excited. I'd love to have a meetup!

Me and my beloved wife are going to be arriving in Seattle, Washington very soon before heading to Alaska on a cruise. We would love to meet the Seattle MeFi contingent on Sunday, August 10th. You all know what I like. We'll be staying by the airport, but we're willing to venture out.

It's summer. We've gone to Ivar's Salmon House each of the last two summers. They have a deck. We're doing it again, on Sunday, July 13 at 3pm. According to the cheerful Ivar's receptionist I just spoke to, 3pm is a pretty safe bet for a table on the deck outside. Reservations have been made, see you Sunday.
We have not had a drinks/n/hollering seattle meetup in sometime and I would like to correct this. Preferably in the Month of May. [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.
scblackman and I are going to meet for coffee before the Slate Live Book Club event for Slaughterhouse Five, somewhere near the event venue, Town Hall in downtown Seattle. Join us! [more inside]

Let's together to welcome hellojed to Seattle! I've reserved a big table at Smiths in Capitol Hill for 6pm onwards on the 18th of January, see you all there!
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...
I'm moving to Toronto in just a couple of days! Unfortunately I don't have enough nights left for a dedicated MeFi meetup night but I'm going to try to get together all my friends at Hale's Ales for some local beers. I hope my MeFi friends can make it too! WARNING: you may have to interact with non-MeFites. People might not know who Matt Haughey or Jessamyn are.

I'd like to run with someone who won't mind that I am running a 16 minute mile. Let's meet up in a couple of weekends at Alki for a run with our progeny.
Okay - let me preface this by saying that I don't really want to be the center of attention. But dammit, after spending 6 months in Moscow, Idaho (long story) I demand a meetup upon my return to Seattle. [more inside]
stet and I are going to Ballard FM tomorrow. It is open 10am - 3pm. We will probably be there by about 11am, and hang around until at least noon, probably more like 1-2pm. Would anyone like to meet at Hattie's or Bastille or [insert place that is better to hang out because we don't know Ballard anymore]. [more inside]
I will be hosting card, word, board and strategy games in my home in Beacon Hill this Saturday. IMPORTANT: The address given here is of the VA hospital, which is very nearby my home (metafilter will not allow me to simply use cross-streets and I don't feel comfortable posting my address). Actual address will be memailed to those who RSVP. Start time is 3 PM, and end time is whenever the last person leaves. Feel free to come whenever you want and leave whenever you want. Also feel free to bring games or come gameless. Libations and refreshments will be provided, though additional are also welcome. [more inside]
I'm wondering if there is enough interest to have a non-RPG gaming session in one of the more southern neighborhoods of Seattle. I could host in my home in Beacon Hill (preferred), or at a public venue somewhere not incredibly far away, such as Georgetown, Capitol Hill, or Seward Park. Tuesday or Fridays work best for me (anytime), second choice would be Sunday late afternoon/evening, third choice would be Saturday. Saturdays that would work for me in the foreseeable future are October 20th and November 10th. Sundays that wouldn't work are October 28th and November 4th. [more inside]
I am in Seattle for business THIS THURSDAY the 20th. I am staying at the SilverCloud Inn near the stadium. We should get drinks at Hooverville, because I can walk there from the hotel. [more inside]
You might have seen the post about the ENCODE project. grouse was on that giant project of multi-team, collaborative, awesomeness. Any other project participants welcome to hit me up for a beer too! And anyway, we haven't had a meetup in a while (that I've actually gone to) so this may just be an excuse to have a meetup. [more inside]
The last board game meetup was a ton of fun. Obviously, we should do it again. [more inside]
At the last meetup, there was a hunger for a board gaming day. Let's do it. [more inside]
Seattle hasn't seen much meet-up action lately, we've discussed a meet up in Greenwood before, how about we make it happen? Possible dates: Sometime in the next few weeks. Possible venue: Naked City?
Hiya, folks! I'm in Seattle for, I'm guessing, about a week. I've got one meetup scheduled for The Unicorn Bar at 7 p.m. on Thursday, 26 April, but I'm open to another, more MeFi-specific gathering if Emeralders prefer.
