hippybear and wallabear in Seattle pre-Rush concert meetup

So, we're going to be in Seattle for the Rush show on Sunday July 19. Thought it might be nice to meet a few Seattle MeFites before the show. 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!

Hello Seattle!

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! I would love to meet any and all local mefites, but I've never been here and know nothing. Hope Me! Edit: Dinner at Marination Ma Kai on the 16th at 7 it is! Hope to see many of you there!

It's my birthday! And my meetup!

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.

3rd Annual Ivar's Salmon House Summer Meetup

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.

West Seattle Picnic

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.

Christmas Bowling Party at Imperial Lanes

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...

grouse's last night in town

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.

Non-RPG games in Beacon Hill, Seattle

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]

non-RPG games in southish Seattle

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]

Bowling at Imperial Lanes

I have spent the evenings of Christmas Day, New Year's Day and a number of Sundays since bowling with a friend at Imperial Lanes in Rainier Valley. We have had a wonderful time every time. Experience strongly suggests a meetup there on another Sunday evening would work out fine. Especially since this time it seems fairly likely that it will not be snowing.

So, I thought I would submit the place -- again -- for a bowling meetup on April 15th. [more inside]

Bowling at Imperial Lanes

I spent the evenings of both Christmas Day and New Year's Day bowling with a friend at Imperial Lanes down in Rainier Valley. We had a wonderful time. I can't say what it would be like on a regular night, but there were plenty of lanes open both times we went. I can't speak for what it would be like on a weeknight but I suspect another Sunday evening would work out fine.

So, I thought I would submit the place as a bowling meetup venue. [more inside]
