Meow Wolf Events for early 2018 / NM meetups ideas

There are a number of good shows coming through Meow Wolf (Santa Fe, NM) in the coming months, but instead of trying to drum up interest in each, I thought I'd just link to the Meow Wolf events page above the fold and let local folks chime in if any strike their fancy. [Also, we should have a normal, non-event/performance meetup soon, because it's been ages, so we can talk about that, too!]

Knitting More pussy hats in NYC. I’ll teach you

I can teach you how to knit pussy hats. We can maybe collect hats for distribution before the next womens March. We had a successful group on 12/21, with two knitters learning to purl! There will be room for ten on couches, a snuggly black cat (who decided yesterday that she’s kinda into circular needles if they’re juggling in front of her), cake, and tea. Near the R/W train at 8 Street, 6 train at Astor Place, ACE/BD at West 4th, N at 14th Street. Memail for actual address and buzzer instructions. [more inside]
