Lollapalooza, Chile

If any mefites will be at Parque O'Higgins this Saturday or Sunday, let's meet up! We'll be with our 3.5 year old, so somewhere near Kidzapalooza sounds about right.

MeFites in Copenhagen?

Any mefites in the Copenhagen/Malmö/Lund area? I'm studying in Lund until the end of May, and figure Copenhagen is big enough that there must be some of us around here... Perhaps April 15, April 17, or sometime the week of the 18th?

East Midlands?

It's starting to warm up, the pubs are plentiful, how about an East Midlands meetup? I'm based in Nottingham, you may be around that area, and it might be a delight. Heck, we could go to the Trip to Jerusalem and go hang out in one of the caves...

cicLAvia foursquare (tournament?) 4/10/11

Los Angeles area mefites, let's take klang's sidewalk chalk and balls to the streets and get our foursquare (playground game, not the church or the social media app) on during the upcoming cicLAvia. 7.5 contiguous miles of car-free street awesomeness! [more inside]

Portland. No, not that one, the Maine one.

Northern New Englanders care to gather in The Big City of Portland? I'm thinking perhaps the weekend of April 17th, but the calendar's wide open, as is the choice of venue -- I don't live in Portland, so somebody else can make an executive decision on that.

The Emperor Of Atlantis

is the first production by the new opera company I've founded, Dioneo. We'll be staging it at the Cello Factory near Waterloo, London, on the evenings of April 5, 6, 8 and 9 (but not 7.) It's a one-act opera, about an hour long. We at Dioneo believe that opera should be available to everyone, so we've priced tickets at only £12. The venue is intimate and only seats 60, so advance booking is recommended. You can book online here. [more inside]

Any MeFites here from Budapest?

Will Eisner New York exhibition at MoCCA

Anyone interested in seeing the Will Eisner New York exhibition at MoCCA? After some discussion, I figured Saturday, April 16 might be an auspicious date. I've been to the space before, and though the place isn't huge, this one looks fun. It's $5. Could do lunch before in Chinatown/SoHo also or just meet up at museum at 2:30.

Coffee Meetup before the Rally at the Capitol

There are 3 events going on Saturday afternoon around the capitol: Noon - Farmer Labor Tractorcade around the Capitol Square, 2 pm - Arts Workers March Together (from the Overture Center for the Arts), 3 pm - AFL-CIO rally at the Capitol. So let's meet up before all that to get warm, get caffeinated and get ready. I'm flexible on location, I picked Michelangelo's because it's close and I was there last weekend.
