I am going to be in Denver...

The night of Saturday 10 February. I'd love to see some Denver MeFites. I'd be up for dinner or drinks. I will be downtown near the convention center, and I'd love suggestions for where to meet. If it's dinner, a place that takes reservations would be good.

Seattle Trivia

Ok, we are all back from college for Thanksgiving, sleeping on an air mattress in our father's den surrounded by Bill Cosby books on fatherhood and Ronald Reagan posters. You can't find decent whiskey at home, so come join the Seattle MeFi juggernaut Manifest Destiny's Child for the usual evening of Pub Quiz Trivia to the Death at the George and Dragon. [more inside]

The wonderful starlybri was kind enough to organize a recent NYC meet up, and some of us got to talking about how they used to happen more frequently in the city. So overhauser has kindly secured a spot at Lucky's in the East Village for us to gather on Saturday, December 9. The time will be 2-6pm. There will be cheap drinks, and we'd like to do this pot luck style with food! [more inside]
