I'm in HK for the week and would love to meet some MeFites

Hello HK MeFites, The universe did some funny things to me recently and now I find myself in Hong Kong by myself for the week. I'd love to meet up for lunch/drinks/dinner/whatever. I am especially interested in dinner because I want to eat more things and you just can't when you're on your own! Am staying in Mong Kok. Have octopus card, will travel! Stellathon

Spring Taters?

Well it's almost spring, as evidenced by all the snow on the ground.
Wait.
Oh well.
It may not feel like spring, but the Taters will surely bloom on Wednesday at 7pm at Geeks Who Drink trivia at Phoenix Landing.

NYC Metafilter Book Meetup

I’m reading Pachinko by Min Jin Lee. I’d like to talk about it with people. Metafilter is full of great and thoughtful people. I think this book would be good for discussion in two meetings because it’s long, with the paperback coming in at 479 pages. There are discussion questions in the back of the book. We could choose two or three (or more!) things to talk about. [more inside]

New to Houston. Would love to meet some MeFites

I moved here in January. I don't know anyone beyond my wife. I thought I'd see if there was anyone here that would be interested in a meet up. I live in the Montrose area, so inside the loop would be best. Drinks somewhere would be great, but something more unique would be cool too.

DC FOODIES March Meetup Madness

OK, there isn't any actual madness, but this month, we're going to Golden Samovar in Rockville, MD for delicious Russian and Central Asian foods! (But didn't we just have Central Asian food last month, you ask? Yes, and we liked it! Why not more? Or you can just stick to the Eastern European options on the menu.) [more inside]
