Dim Sum: Let's Get Some

Chinese New Year is Sunday February 10, and that seems like a fine week to grab some dim sum. SuperStar is good but is also a cool 2+ hours EACH WAY on public transportation from Boulder. Newport in Broomfield is OK, and has the bonus of being in the parking lot of Pacific Ocean Market ... so a meetup outing can multitask as a grocery shopping expedition! Dates and dim sum suggestions solicited ... please be mindful of the carless among us! (I know all the recent Front Range meetups have been in Denver, but Boulder has no dim sum to speak of.) Thanks, hope to break bao with you soon!

Out of Town Meetup?

My wife (dancingfruitbat) my adorable 1-year-old son and I are going to be in San Diego from February 1st through February 5th and would love to meet up with some MeFites while we're visiting. Except for Friday night we don't have set plans in the evening although we will be meeting with a lot of relatives. The first two nights we will be in the Kearny Mesa neighborhood and then moving on to Pacific Beach for the next few days. We've gotten really excited reading the Convoy Street blog and would be especially interested in a meetup there!

Performance Art Burlesque Showcase!

My drunken mumblings at MeFieri 2 revealed that I do burlesque, and I'm working on an act that will be at the Slipper Room. I don't want to reveal much because I leave that for the stage, but I'm hoping it will be fun and amusing. And hey, the Slipper Room does good cocktails. The other acts are a little more deep and interesting than mine, but I'm trying to make them a surprise too. Also, boobies. [more inside]
