First Wednesday! We're Still Trying

I'm executive-decisioning this one. L&L Tavern, after work, say 6ish? I'm five minutes away, so if you're going to make it to L&L earlier, let me know and I'll join you. We'll head to Carol's Pub around 7pm or 7:30 for a karaoke fundraiser for Sarah's Circle, a nonprofit that provides homeless or at risk women with food, clothing, shelter, housing and clinical services for domestic violence and trauma.

Want to jump into the Potomac on Jan 25 to fight climate change?

Hi all! I'm doing the Chesapeake Climate Action Network's "Keep Winter Cold" polar bear plunge again this year. It's a fundraising event for a great organization that does excellent state & local organizing around environmental issues--they're the ones we have to thank for Maryland's fracking ban. I'm wondering if I can coax some local mefites into taking the plunge with me and fundraising as #TeamMetafilter. Anyone interested? [more inside]

San Diego Cookie Potluck

I noticed the MeFi Cookie Swap is up on MetaTalk but I was thinking instead of tediously and expensively mailing cookies to each other, maybe we should try to meet up in person instead! [more inside]

Trivia with a side of Onion Rings

Emerge from your non-trivia funk to show the world what the hive mind can achieve when it can be bothered to focus on meatspace. Sentient onion rings will assist. [more inside]

Road Movie to Berlin

Under_petticoat_rule and I are coming to Berlin on December 1-2! One of our favorite parts of traveling is meeting local MeFites. MeFites seem to be pre-selected to be really interesting people and always tell us interesting things about their cities. I've blindly poked at a map and selected Brauhaus Lemke because it's central and seems to have places for people to gather. If there's a better location please suggest it in comments!

Want to meetup for a donut with an old fool?

Trivia!

Trivia at Cat and Fiddle! This is our first trivia hang as a MeFi IRL posse, but I suspect it is gonna be a hoot. Seattle and Portland seem to do IRL trivia events all the time, so Calgary might as well put ourselves on the map as far as that's concerned. Trivia allegedly starts at 7:30pm; let's plan for a 7pm(ish) meetup! As always, this thread is available on the Day Of, if you're the first person to arrive or if are trying to find the rest of us :)

First Wednesday: November Vote for the Goat

After a few months of trying elsewhere, we're returning to the Billy Goat for this first Wednesday because 3 years ago we were here for the Cubs winning the World Series and also we haven't found a better permanent place. I'll be there after work around 6 and we'll be there for a few hours probably and then I'm planning on heading up to Carol's Pub for karaoke and burgers. [more inside]

DC FOODIES are not Agora-phobic

...sue me, it's Friday. It's been a while since we ventured into the cuisines of the Mediterranean, so let's stave off the chilly November weather with a comforting meal of Turkish meze at Agora. To avoid any clashes with turkey-day travel, we're doing a weeknight this month. Join us! [more inside]
