Meetup: Last minute trip to NYC. last minute meet-up!

We're calling this the Holiday Hangover show. [more inside]
Meetup: Warming up for the Slayer
I'm sure the G&D Trivia night will be less Buffy-centric than the one the next night, but that doesn't mean it's a bad idea. Let's go forth and tilt at the windmill that is our Tuesday tradition.
Etc: Reimagining Arts Funding: A Community Discussion
Concerned about the loss of Australian Government funding for the arts? Interested in other ways of funding the arts? Have examples of strategies that worked for you? Come on by and let's chat! Crowdfunding, barn-raising, sponsorships, giving circles, community grants, even day jobs & family support - let's get a wider view of all our options and even make new ones. Artists, artsworkers, funders, organisations, community groups - all are welcome! Free entry, bookings encouraged. Venue is wheelchair-accessible. [more inside]
Meetup: January NYC Crafting
I dropped to ball on December, but let's get going again in January. Same as usual: Coffeed, Chelsea, all crafts welcome. (To be clear, if you want to come hang out in a coffee shop for ~2 hours while people knit/craft, that is also fine.) [more inside]
Meetup: We Wish You a Merry Meatmas
And a Tatery New Year! Come celebrate the reason for the season--trivia at Orleans.
Proposed: Brisbane Bowls and Brews
Hi, since we've got one "maybe" (and the only two confirmed are the people who set this up) we are going to cancel this. Jilder, if you want to meet up at some other point we'd be delighted.
Meetup: Buffy Trivia at Central Cinema!
My partner and I are looking for three more people to join our team for Buffy the Vampire Slayer trivia night at Central Cinema. [more inside]
Performance: Comedy for Carmen (Rubio)
I'm hosting a killer comedy showcase at the very cool Rose City Book Pub on Fremont. Lineup includes Adam Pasi (Portland's Funniest Person winner), Belinda Carroll, Alex Rios, Julia Ramos, Thomas Lundy, Meanroth Ny, and Mefi's own Mark Saltveit (my final Portland gig before moving) We'll pass the hat about a third of the way through the show but no one will be turned away. No politicians, no speeches, just funny.
Performance: Dar Williams concert
Dar Williams and Heather Maloney perform in Williams's traditional end-of-the-year concert. I have a ticket - want to join me?
Meetup: Overclocked Taters
Our triumph last time just goes to show that there's nothing the Taters can't accomplish if there are more of them than technically allowed. Let's flex our trivia muscles again Wednesday night at Orleans.
