Wed November 9 at 8:00 PM, The College Inn Pub
4000 University Way NE, Seattle, WA, USA (Map & Directions)
From the depths of AskMe and IRL was born Big Ideas Social club, a part-salon, part-gabfest about getting together at bars and chatting about neat ideas, works of art and creations that make us happier people. A year later, I'm ready to bring it to my newly adopted Seattle.
Our topic for this inaugural meeting, which serves as a good guide but can always be disregarded entirely dependent upon our whims:
What piece of conventional wisdom most drives you crazy?
Big Ideas Social Club is a unique sort of meetup. During the year I spent helping organize things in DC and met every two weeks or so, we went all over the place in town, varied in meetup size from four to twenty, but always had a really good time and brought the typical mix of good humor, a little snark and a lot of intelligence that this place was known for. I made some really good friends there, both MeFites and not, and it's a dynamic I'd like to bring with me.

MeFites are a big part of BISC-DC's success, and you guys can help make sure that it's not just my grad student friends at this thing. You can also check out the website, Twitter account, and e-mail list.

If I were not attending a concert that very evening, I would so be there. Bummer!

I myself have been looking for something like this. I'd love to show up and contribute what I can. Count me in.

This sounds like a lot of fun! I'll be there.

Sounds like fun. I'll be in Seattle for November and if I can persuade Hubby (a registered MeFite and lurker, but non-commenter) to go we'll drop in for a while.

Hey everybody, looking forward to meeting you all tomorrow. Just a quick reminder that we're on for tomorrow at 8PM, that I'll have a placard on the table (and that I look like my profile picture) and that you're welcome to bring friends, acquaintances or other stragglers. If you miss us this time around, we're going to do the same thing at the same place and time on November 30th, though I suspect I won't post another IRL.
