Game Night

My core group of gamers is sort of flagging, and we would like to bolster it with new members, if anyone's interested. This is for board and card gaming in specific. If you're interested and it seems like a good idea for you to come, it probably is! This isn't a meetup, though - the gathering will be about gaming. The location is about 1 1/2 blocks from Ashby BART. [more inside]

Stockholm Dinner/Fika Wed 30 Jan 19:00

In 1792, the underground Café Sten Sture in Gamla Stan was a prison. According to its website, "It’s an amazing experience to sit in our caves from 1400 century. We have many cozy and exciting Caves." It was fun in November, when two additional MeFites made an appearance. It will also be fun in January! [more inside]

10 Years of Goating It Up

So at some point, post-daylight savings but pre-New Year ten long years ago we settled into a comfortable routine of drinking tiny beers and eating greasy grill food on the First Wednesday of every month in one another's splendid company. This is the closest you're getting to an anniversary event. We hope you'll join us. There might be cake. Or swag. Or nothing at all. [more inside]

Nobody is Above the Law: Austin - Mueller Protection Rapid Response

Austin MeFites: come band together and stand together at city hall this evening as we mobilize to demand protection for the Mueller investigation to hold president Trump and the cronies of his administration accountable for their actions. The forced resignation of Jeff Sessions and the subsequent replacement of Rod Rosenstein by Trumpist stooge Matt Whittaker should not go unanswered. This is nothing but a transparent step towards ending or discrediting the investigation, and the people of Austin, Texas will not be fooled. [more inside]
